Marlowe Hapworth is found dead in his locked study, killed by an unknown assailant. This is a case for the Great Detective, Madame Vastra. Rick Bellamy, bare-knuckle boxer, has the life drawn out of him by a figure dressed as an undertaker. This angers Strax the Sontaran. The Carnival of Curiosities, a collection of bizarre and fascinating sideshows and performers. This is where Jenny Flint looks for answers.
How are these things connected? And what does Orestes Milton, rich industrialist, have to do with it all? As the Doctor and Clara joint the hunt for the truth they find themselves thrust into a world where nothing and no one is what they seem....
Justin Richards' thrilling new novel stars the Twelfth Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi in the hit BBC TV series, and also features his friends Madame Vastra, Strax, and Jenny - the Paternoster Gang. It is read by Dan Starkey, who plays Strax in Doctor Who. Reading produced by Neil Gardner. Sound design by Simon Hunt. Executive producer: Michael Stevens.

not outstanding, but still very good

Silhouette has quite a simple story, but never boring. It has quite a bizarre villain, which I kind of liked, even though he admittedly confounded me from time to time.
It is just very unfortunate that the Doctor stays somehow diffuse during the entire book. Again, I have to make allowances for the author that he had to write the novel without having seen one single episode while I now listened to it after watching the whole season plus “Last Christmas”.
In comparison (I just finished “Blood Cell” as the last of the 3 novels) Richards does the poorest job characterizing the Doctor and especially Clara, who he should know for an entire season with 11.

Nevertheless, it still is a very good Doctor-Who-novel, just nothing outstanding. Good standard, I heard (and saw) worse, so also the story earns in my ears a high rating.
Dan Starkey of course is the cat’s pyjamas.
