I’m stealing this one from Joe because I’m hoping that, in sorting through older books I have yet to read, which have sat in my TBR for well over a year, that I might actually pick one up and read it. Instead of being lured into my local bookshop, and buying yet another new book!

Title: Silent Scream
Author: Angela Marsons
Length: 406 pages
What’s it about: (taken from Goodreads)
Even the darkest secrets can’t stay buried forever…
Five figures gather round a shallow grave. They had all taken turns to dig. An adult sized hole would have taken longer. An innocent life had been taken but the pact had been made. Their secrets would be buried, bound in blood …
Years later, a headmistress is found brutally strangled, the first in a spate of gruesome murders which shock the Black Country.
But when human remains are discovered at a former children’s home, disturbing secrets are also unearthed. D.I. Kim Stone fast realises she’s on the hunt for a twisted individual whose killing spree spans decades.
As the body count rises, Kim needs to stop the murderer before they strike again. But to catch the killer, can Kim confront the demons of her own past before it’s too late?
How I got it:
I grabbed this one off the shelf at my local bookshop after the person that ordered it failed to collect it.
When I got it:
Why I want to read it:
I read EVIL GAMES last year, which is book two in the series, so of course, I had to go back find book one and read it in order to answer questions about things that happened in book two. Which might prompt me to read both, back to back.
