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.

Silent Scream is a brilliant novel.
At Chapter 2 I was interested, at Chapter 7 I was completely enthralled.
Angela Marsons has written a story that is completely able to draw you in and keep you captivated until the final page. It is compelling,fascinating and an extraordinary read, you cannot help but feel empathy for the characters she has created.
Silent Scream is a debut novel that is well researched and is disturbing and utterly gruesome.
I loved DI Kim Stone and hope to see her rise again. Her compassion for her victims knows no bounds and her relentless chase for the truth and justice is refreshing, you can’t help but fall in love with her.
