20575728“Quietus (The Singing Sand Story)” by David Chattaway is an excellent and powerful sequel to what was an amazing debut novel already.

Catching up with the cast of Singing Sands several months after the big finale of book one, Chattaway shows with great empathy and psychological insight the wounds and damage that have been caused. This emotional aftermath builds well on the great care the author took in Singing Sands to give his characters a lot of substance, background and depth.
On this level the story is a solid character / psychological study of a family that survived a dreadful event and how its members cope or not cope.

The second half of the novel however then catches up with the action-drama part of its predecessor and brings clear and present danger and surprises from the characters’ past into this well paced story.
This is a very enjoyable, captivating and gripping read, and a page turner with some unexpected twists and turns. You do not need to read the first book to follow the plot or the characters, although reading this book will probably give away some of the plot of book one. I found this quite addictive to read.

Quite a captivating and dramatic story with substance.
