Silent Scream | Angela Marsons
34 posts | 37 read | 35 to read
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? Fans of Rachel Abbott, Val McDermid and Mark Billingham will be gripped by this exceptional new voice in British crime fiction.

I read this about 2 years ago and still one of my favorite series. Unfortunately, I have yet to read any of the others. I love a strong female lead character and Angela Marsons definitely gives just that with her character Kim Stone. #silentscream #kimstone #angelamarsons #strongfemalelead #thesuspenseisthrillingme #bookworm

This is an excellent debut by Angela Marsons. The characters are all very interesting. I especially enjoyed the characters of D.I. Kim Stone and D.S. Bryant. The plot was intricate with many twists and turns which made it a real page-turner. The book took off from the very beginning and held my attention until the very surprising ending. I look forward to reading the 2nd book in the series. Highly recommend to those who love mystery thrillers.

BookDragonNotWorm This series is REALLY good!!! 4mo

Don‘t you love it when you find a new character, a new author, and a new series, based on book 1 this will become a new favourite. This book read so well and was a good introduction of the character Kim Stone. The book flows very well, a good group of characters has been pulled together, some great plotting and good interactions and dialogues between the characters. What‘s not to like! A good book for theorising on the killers. Recommended.

EadieB Nice review! Can‘t believe it took her so long to get published! 4mo

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the Kim Stone series! Great detective story, chilling mystery, deep character development... my list could go on! Remains of several young girls from a horrible former children‘s home are found, and suddenly people related to the same place are getting murdered... It‘s time to face the past, and in the case of this book, even D.I. Stone has to face her demons. The Black Country seems blacker than ever!

EadieB Nice review! 4mo

It‘s so hot that I‘m having problems with focusing on reading. Was meant to start this yesterday, but started today. I had a couple of books I had to finish before they were due. This book is promising!

rabbitprincess I have the same problem when it gets too hot! I can't focus, so naturally my brain decides this is when I REALLY want to read one of those 500-page historical fiction novels with small type 😂 5mo

DI Kim Stone‘s first case in the series sees her team investigate the discovery of human remains in the grounds of a former children‘s home.

Given some of the other reviews I was perhaps expecting too much. Although it was a perfectly adequate crime novel, it wasn‘t a stand out. 3⭐️

TW: graphic violence & sexual assault. Also couple of instances of animal abuse mentioned.

JeansBookshelf I love this series 6mo
OutsmartYourShelf @JeansBookshelf I plan on giving the second book in the series a go. 6mo
JeansBookshelf @Deangirl When I read this book the first time I thought it was okay. I read it a second time and loved it. I've loved the whole series since. 6mo

BlameJennyJane @Booknerd2 it‘s worth the wait. 😊 I discovered the series through a $1.99 Kindle deal years ago and took a chance and was hooked... and delighted she‘s continuing to grow the series. 7mo

Silent Scream, book 1 in the DI Kim Stone Series, is currently available for 99p in the U.K. I know from people whose opinion I trust that this is an excellent series, although I am yet to start it. At this price it is too tempting not o get hold of that first book.

Has anyone read this? Any opinions?

Andrew65 @julesG It is very similar and that is another book I want to read. Many years (30+) since I read Graham Masterton. 1y

This is the first in a series with D.I. Stone and it has been on my kindle and TBR far too long.
Has anyone read this yet?

woke up at midnight to find Pumpkin had escaped her home. I know my heart is strong after just finishing a crime suspense thriller and seeing a shadow skirmish across my floor...we are all safe and sound 😳

LauraBrook Phew! Amazing how they can get out of stuff, isn't it. Glad P is safe and sound, that cute little stinker! 2y
drokka Those rascally hamsters. 😆 I had one escape, and figured I'd just put some water and cheese out in hope he'd come out. I had put the cheese on the floor by the sofa, was coming back with the water when there he was standing by the sofa holding a tissue, like some great nobleman who'd just completed a seven course meal. We stared at each surprised before I realized I needed to nab him before he bolted again. 2y

So this is a first installment of Kim Stone detective series. I was NOT disappointed at all! I adore a well written psychotic thriller and this is one! I had a list of suspects (note to self: Do I trust AnyOne??). And I love a good twist...

I've heard good things about Angela Marson's debut book in her DI Kim Stone series. Think this one will suit me just fine as I run around doing errands in the rain today and catching up with laundry after our vacation. Nothing like a 'cheerful' murder mystery to keep me going. Have a great Monday! 😀

A hard hitting book that doesn't pull punches. The heroine gives us an unflinching look at the underbelly of GB's foster care system. An honest but compassionate look at the lives broken & shattered, & the painful process of putting them together again. Not a bad mystery, either.

Absolutely fantastic thriller - first in a series of 3 with the 4th coming out next Friday in the UK. The whole series are amongst the best thrillers I've read - and I've read a lot! Kim Stone is one kickass DI. These are 'book the day off to read them' reads 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

MyBookLife Never read her, don't even think I've heard of her. So thank you, because they sound fantastic!! 4y
