Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In Staub's latest suspense novel (following last year's bestseller The Final Victim), four Massachusetts sorority sisters make a pact following the accidental death of their sorority sister, Rachel Lorant, on her birthday; together, they swear never to speak about what they saw that night. Ten years later, the women start receiving mysterious letters alluding to Rachel's demise. When one of the four is brutally murdered on the night of her birthday, the others begin to worry what their own encroaching birthdays hold for them. While police try to track down the murderer, our heroines hold tight to their secrets, even as they're hunted and killed one by one. By the time the past finally does come to light, it may be too late for one desperate survivor. Though her prose is strictly utilitarian, Staub keep things taut and unpredictable, changing perspective often and offering up a whole school of red herrings; capped with a gratifying conclusion, Staub's latest is a surprisingly effective thriller.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
On the eve of the tenth anniversary of the death of their fellow sorority sister Rachel, Brynn, Cassie, Fiona, and Tildy each receive a birthday card that has them wondering if Rachel died that fateful night she fell over a cliff while drunkenly celebrating her 20th birthday their sophomore year in college. The four never reported the accident for fear that their sorority would shut down, or worse, they would be charged in her death. When they meet for the first time in many years to plan their next steps, old rivalries and the need to keep the past a secret have them going their separate ways. Then one by one, they fall victim to a killer who goes the extra mile in gruesome, setting up a macabre birthday party for each victim on her 30th birthday. Rachel's step-brother Isaac has been searching for Rachel for the past ten years, and every relationship has suffered as a result. Could he be so distraught that he wants to get even with the quartet?

Staub tosses out several potential killers and manages to surprise the reader with the revelation. Each of the women has a distinct personality and plenty of drama in their own lives. At nearly 500 pages, the novel is so well written that the pages just flow. It still amazes me that Staub is the same woman who writes romance novels under the pseudonym Wendy Markham! "Don't Scream" is a taut thriller that will have you second guessing at each turn.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have to agree with reviewer Ross. I'm a woman, and I didn't like it either. He felt the book was for female reading. That's because it was so full of feminine stereotypes. I didn't really feel for the characters. Because my emotions were not involved while reading, the book was "flat" for me.

The book is about 5 closeknit sorority sister being killed off one by one. Three reason I didn't like the book:

-Ten years previously one sister falls to her death while intoxicated. The other four were present. They checked to see if she was, in fact, dead; and then, they left her where she fell. They didn't want to be involved. I mean, they were close. Not one of the remaining four had the guts and character to stand up and call 911 for their "sister". They just left her to be eaten by vultures.

-The main protaganist is Brynn, she's currently married to her former professer. One of her sisters, tried to get her husband into bed. With friends like that, do you need enemies?

-Brynn and her husband have two children. He doesn't want anymore. Brynn becomes pregnant and "hides" it from him. He actually finds out she's pregnant from their young child. I mean, come on already. Brynn's husband knew Rachel, (the young woman who fell to her death). He was involved in the search party when she went "missing". In ten years of marriage Brynn has never confided in her husband about what happened that night. Brynn's husband, Garth, has his own secrets. When he tells Brynn he slept with one of her sorority sister before their marriage, and this same sister, propositioned him after their marriage; Brynn goes ballistic. She refuses to talk it over with him.

Wendy Corsi Staub's latest thriller is a treat for her fans, both new and old. This one will truly keep you guessing until the last pages. I was so sure I had the killer figured out near the end, but I was wrong. Who can resist a murder mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end. "Don't Scream" will do just that. The characters are real and well developed. It's always difficult to wait a year for a new thriller from this talented author, but this book was well worth the wait. Don't miss it!

Ms. Staub is quite the pro at dangling red herrings. Like Mary Higgins Clark, she introduces extraneous characters with hints that raise your suspicions. Yet the ending is still a surprise. I really thought I had it figured out but was totally wrong.

Don't Scream introduces you to a group of friends who were in sorority sisters who witnessed a fellow sister's (Rachel) death ten years ago. Ten years pass and each "sister" (Tildy, Cassie, Fiona, Brynn) receive a birthday card for their thirtieth birthday. (All the sisters birthdays including Rachel's were around the same time) Soon they come to realize that someone else knows what happened to Rachel and knows what part they played. They didn't see anyone else that night. Who could it be? Is Rachel still alive??

Tildy is a rich socialite who was the chapter leader at the sorority. She is very selfish, snobbish- thinking only of her career, connections, and social status. A character you love to hate.

Brynn is a stay at home mom with two young sons. She lives an average life- plays the roles of doting mother and loving wife seamlessly. She comes off as the most realistic and relatable of the bunch.

Fiona is a divorced mother of one. She is a counterpart to Brynn- hard focused on advancing her career at all costs, particularly being a loving mother to her daughter. She is bitter and confrontational. Another character you love to hate.

Cassie is training to be a pediatrician. She is engaged to be married in a few months time to another doctor but is unsure of what she wants in life.

It's a fast paced mystery- keeps you guessing until the very end. Though, it is at times confusing, as you try to put the pieces together and solve just who-dun-it. It's chilling to see just how vulnerable they are. You can easily predict who the victims will be and who will survive. Overall a good story- one of the better mysteries I've read.
