'With the tension of a Nicci French thriller, the intellectual fizz of Donna Tartt's The Secret History and the very best of Maggie O'Farrell's unnerving readability, Dymott is a classy storyteller' Elle

From the author of Every Contact Leaves a Trace comes a story of family and the lies we tell in order to survive

Following the death of her famous father, Ruthie returns to the family villa in remote, wild Greece.

After fifteen years in exile she is welcomed by her older sister, Vinny. They build a fragile happiness in their haven above the sea, protecting one another from the dark secrets of their childhood.

But the arrival of an English family at a neighbouring cottage, and one young girl in particular, triggers a chain of events that will plunge both women back into the past, with shocking and fatal consequences.

'I read Silver and Salt as if in a trance. Elanor Dymott is a master of delicate psychological suspense' Elena Lappin, author of What Language Do I Dream in?

'Beautifully detailed with a profound sense of place and the intricate clues woven through the fabric of the novel build up to a tragic finale' Daily Express

'A beautifully observed and shattering exploration of grief as their family's tragic past is revealed' Woman & Home

Review:

"I loved and admired Silver and Salt. It manages to be both very clever and entirely absorbing. I return to the settings in my mind long after finishing the book, and find myself thinking about the characters as if they were people I knew, while also respecting Elanor Dymott’s way with a sentence" (Sarah Moss)

"Elegant and atmospheric, Silver and Salt is written with a calm lucidity that is both seductive and unnerving. You start to feel that anything could be revealed in that sharp Greek sunlight, and then it is" (Adam Foulds)

"Beautifully and movingly realized... Dymott has the ability which so many novelists lack to make essentially good people interesting and convincing... Dymott is a novelist of obvious talent" (Allan Massie Scotsman)

"I read Silver & Salt as if in a trance. Elanor Dymott is a master of delicate psychological suspense, treading gently but with devastating precision until every detail of this very sad story is revealed and embedded in the reader's mind, possibly forever." (Elena Lappin, author of WHAT LANGUAGE DO I DREAM IN)

"Beautifully detailed with a profound sense of place and the intricate clues woven through the fabric of the novel build up to a tragic finale." (Daily Express)

"Silver & Salt juxtaposes the precise mechanics of the photographic process with the fluidity of memory to great effect. Dymott... skillfully suggests how people – not just pictures – are all too susceptible to atmospheric conditions." (Stephanie Cross Daily Mail)

"A beautifully observed and shattering exploration of grief as their family’s tragic past is revealed." (Fanny Blake Woman & Home)

"Fans of psychological suspense are sure to be hooked." (Saga Magazine)

"She continues to delve into the minds of characters who have experienced some kind of trauma. The book is beautifully grafted, the action swinging from present to past and back again. It is at times lyrical, moving and profoundly disturbing. Dymott shows great psychological insight into the minds of the two girls and their troubles." (Clarissa Burden Tablet)

"The gruelling and fascinating process of photographic development reads like its own sort of poetry in this gut-wrenching, achingly intimate look at grief and how closely art and life intertwine, for better or worse." (Kirkus Reviews)
