Grounded in an ancient musical paradox, Natasha Mostert's thrilling second novel is a tour-de-force of mystery and violence.

The Other Side of Silence

A killer computer game. The most compelling music the world has ever known. An ancient riddle. And two brilliant men and the woman they both love, setting out on a forbidden quest that will lead the world to the edge of chaos.

"With THE OTHER SIDE OF SILENCE Mostert has written a brilliant tale in the thriller genre, with little dots of spirituality here and there"
The Cape Times

It is called The Angels' Key - a wildly successful computer game that has taken the world by storm. Seduced by the eerie music generated by the game, fans play the game obsessively. There are those who worry about the way the music hypnotizes its listeners; others, that its addicts can become violent - but most are simply captivated by its beauty.

Behind the music from The Angels' Key are two exceptional young men: Jon Falconer, American computer genius and gifted mathematician, and his friend, the brilliant but troubled Englishman, Stephen Yale. Their goal is to create a perfect musical scale, and with the help of the enormous computing power the game's addicts bring when they play it, they are getting very close to success.

"The Other Side of Silence is one of that rare breed: an intelligent book about a fairly complex subject that manages to intrigue and hold your attention throughout. Absorbing detail and a clever plot are weaved together into a compelling, taut thriller"
Fair Lady

But at the heart of The Angels' Key lies one of the oldest and deadliest mysteries in the science of sound. As eager fans log onto the game, the riddle is slowly but surely starting to unlock...

As the sinister implications of The Angels' Key become evident, Jon desperately strives to terminate his invention but is thwarted in his efforts by Stephen who has his own reasons for wanting to keep the game alive. And caught in the middle is the woman they both desire and ultimately the only person who can stop a chilling prophecy from becoming a terrifying reality.
