However, having read the other books in the series, now, I wish I had read them all in order. I read the fourth, the sixth, and then the first three. It would have helped a little to know the background of the characters for the final book, but the fourth book in the series was confusing without a frame of reference for the main character. (less)

Not my favorite, but still a good addition to the series!

Her Silent Cry is a police procedural about a child abducted in broad daylight. With no witnesses and no suspects, the child’s parents come under fire. While they seem innocent, deep dark secrets from their past could put their child in imminent danger.

This is the 6th book in the Detective Josie Quinn series--it can be read as a standalone. This was a little different than the other books in the series in that the mystery wasn’t

Josie Quinn is back on the case in book six of the Josie Quinn series!

Seven-year-old Lucy Ross goes missing from a playground she was at with her two parents. Josie Quinn immediately begins looking for her, but there are no signs of the little girl anywhere. Minutes count when children go missing and once Lucy's backpack is found with a note inside - a note form the kidnapper - "answer your phone, or your sweet little darling will die…"

I just love, love our main character here Josie and Lisa Regan has given me another reason to love her more. With each story, Josie develops a little more and we see more into her and her heart. In this installment, we see another side to Josie and it's not to be missed.

Josie is on the race to find the kidnapper of a missing girl. Just how Lucy goes missing is chilling and unsettling but not in a graphic way. It's a real eye-opening and had me rethinking a few things when I am out and about. I

EXCERPT:Their argument crashed in angry waves against the door between us, slamming against the wood, pooling on the floor and slipping underneath where I could hear every word. Most of the time, I didn't understand what they were saying or even why they were fighting. I only understood that she was about to get hurt; the silent way, or the screaming way. I was never sure which was worse.

Josie Quinn is back! Can’t believe this is book six! This is hands-down one of my absolute favorite police procedural series, I just love Lisa Regan’s writing style. This time Josie is on the hunt for a missing child. While at the park with young Harrison Josie has a front row seat when little Lucy disappears into thin air after a ride on the carousel. The kidnapper has left several messages implying that this is personal and Josie is convinced that the parents are keeping secrets. As the body c ...more
Detective Josie Quinn was enjoying a day off with her nephew Harris at the park when the unthinkable happened. Lucy Ross, seven years old and with both parents also at the park, somehow, inexplicably, vanished from sight. Josie immediately called her team and coordinated the searching for a little girl who must have run towards home – surely – but there was no sight of her. When it became obvious that Lucy had been abducted, the FBI were called in. Their highly trained child abduction unit swung ...more

She's a beautiful little girl, 7 years old with bright eyes who giggles and skips instead of walking and has a love of butterflies. At the park with her mother, she wants to ride the carousel, but as the ride ends, Lucy disappears.

Detective Josie Quinn happens to be at the same park, babysitting a friend's young son. She immediately goes into police mode, shutting the park down, calling for a lot of backup, setting up search teams and calling in the search dogs. But Lucy is gone.

I always get excited when a new Lisa Regan book comes out - especially when it is a Josie Quinn story. Can't believe this is number 6 in this series already. In my opinion this series keeps getting stronger with each book. I love getting to know Josie and the people she works with, her family and what makes her tick. There was not a lot of this in Her Silent Cry but there was glimpses and I hope that book 7 will take this further. Once again this was a fast read for me, a quick paced police proc ...more

That was just so...tense. Seven year old Lucy Ross disappears from the carousel in the playground at Denton park. Her mother, Amy, was on the carousel with her. Her father was waiting at the gate. There were many people in the park that day, including Detective Josie Quinn. No one, not one person saw what happened to Lucy, saw where she went.

An extensive search finds no trace of the girl. Finally the parents get a call, confirming that Lucy has been kidnapped. The kidnapper taunts Amy Ross, it’s

I was fully engrossed within 30 seconds from starting to read it. Lisa Regan is masterful with her ability to write exciting, tension filled drama. “Her Silent Cry” is easily in the top 3 psychological, detective stories I’ve read this year. The non-stop action is driven by query and dialogue without much prose. There’s barely time to take a breath or a comfort break.

Altho’ this is book 6th in a series, it stands alone quite easily. Even with limited character development, it was not difficult t

This is book #6 and I do love Detective Josie Quinn. This one centers around a child kidnapping and kept me turning the pages. The kidnapping kicks off the book and happens right under the nose of her parents. Josie just happens to be at the park at the time and things go into high gear to find the missing child. The FBI get involved quickly and I enjoyed reading about how they investigate.

Detective Josie Quinn is at the playground one day and hears panicked parents screaming that they cannot find their seven-year-old, Lucy Ross. Lucy and her mother are on the merry-go-round, and Lucy's father is off the the side, busy on his cell phone.

Josie starts searching right away and quickly spots Lucy's backback, which was described by her frantic mother. Shockingly, there is a message inside of the backpack, and it says for them to answer their phone, or else their daughter might die..

Her Silent Cry (Detective Josie Quinn Book 6) was a thoroughly good read. Josie Quinn was enjoying a day off at Denton City Park Playground, when a child goes missing. Although the park is filled with people, nobody notices when seven year old Lucy Ross disappears from a carousel ride in full view of everyone waiting in line. Lucy who is obsessed with butterflies, is the only child of Amy and Colin Ross. Did Lucy simply just wander off, or was she abducted?

What a journey. I’m exhausted! I read this book in 3 hours...I literally could not put it down. I baked and read. Man oh man this author is a flippin’ genius in this genre.

I think what I love the most about this authors characters is how they are smart, strong, slightly abrasive and hands down bad ass. They are carrying baggage but are still relentless in the pursuit of doing what’s right.

Josie is determined with every case she lands to give it 200%. I love that sh

Detective Josie Quinn is part of the huge team searching for an abducted child in this thriller that kept me turning the pages fast and furiously.

When at a local park, Lucy gets off the carousel and vanishes. Soon the FBI is called in to help with the search but they have no leads and things are very bleak. Then, they hear a message from the

What a great series this is. After having read the previous part, you might think this can’t get any better, but hey guess again. The author shakes this out of her sleeve as if it’s as simple as learning the ABC. It’s so great when a book can have you utterly mesmerized and leaves you gobsmacked after the final revelations.

The story also contains a big amount of emotions. It broke my heart but I also wanted to slap Lucy’s mum. I On the one hand I understood her, on the other I did not at all.

Her Silent Cry (Detective Josie Quinn Book 6) by Lisa Regan starts you off on the edge of your seat and doesn’t let go until the satisfying ending.

I had a difficult time putting this book down as there was never a dull moment and so much action and tension in each scene and on every page that I stayed up late to read or neglected chores during the day!

Her Silent Cry does not disappoint and is a great addition to the Josie Quinn series. The writing is excellent, and every interaction brings you

I'm getting tired of reviewing Lisa Regan's masterpieces because they're all SO GOOD and I am out of new ways to say just how absolutely gripping they are. 

Detective Josie Quinn is officially my favourite detective in the whole fiction world. She's got the skills, the bravado and the defiance. 

Her Silent Cry was probably my favourite book from the Josie Quinn series so far. I loved the way the case progressed, I loved the bits from the killer's POV that gave us an insight into their mind. I ador

2.5 rounded up...

This story is full of misdirection from big items to smaller items and sadly I found it all anticlimactic. The personal element with Josie became a why did the author even go that route.

The character of Amy and her background was a long slow arduous journey. By the time everything is revealed, I just didn't care. And since she was key to the plot of her missing child, i became as disinterested in the plot as I was with her character.

By the end, I was just glad I made it through

I don’t know where to start with this review! I love this series, I really do! I just had a hard time reading this book. Not because I didn’t like it, I really did, just the storyline of a missing child was hard to read. It makes me never want to let mini-me out of my sight ever again. It’s every parent’s nightmare!

This is a tough case for Quinn and her team, at least she has the FBI to help this time. A young child goes missing, how the hell did she just disappear. Even looking back over video
