Hollow Scream has a large cast of characters. If you have read this series before you know each book features a Thomas sibling. Other than Wyatt, the main hero in this book, the others have all been in the law enforcement field. This book takes place in the small town of Crescent Hollow, Virginia which is surrounded by the George Washington Jefferson National Forest. Turns out a killer or two has been using it as their dumping ground for their victims.
Cast of Characters:
Wyatt Thomas is a forensic psychiatrist. Along with his day job he also writes non-fiction books on serial killers. He decides to take time off from work when he gets behind on a book deadline and heads to a cabin in the mountains of Crescent Hollow to finish. We get a glimps into each chapter he is writing which features real life killers and the dilemmas jurors face when they are brought to justice when the defense of not guilty by reason of insanity is used. Interesting stuff.. I would have to agree that most probably are insane but to make sure the “monster” is put away most juries choose to find not insane. While Wyatt is locked away in his cabin he is oblivious to what's going on around him until he comes up for air and finds out multiple bodies have been found in the forest, that his FBI sister Annie and her partner Blake have been called to town and that Merrybell, a woman he connected with one night when he wandered out for food, has been attacked by the killer.
Merrybell Montgomery was a detective with the Philadelphia PD when her husband got terminal cancer. She decided to retire take him back to the town he grew up in so he would be surrounded by family. Its been 1 year since he died and she is still in Crescent Hollow working for her mother in law at her pastry shop. She is part of group of ladies that finds the first body parts and they sheriff who only has a crew of one asks her for help which unfortunately brings her under the radar of the killer.
FBI agent Annie Thomas and her partner Blake Hayashi. Annie was the main lead in the last book and is Wyatt's sister. Annie and Blake are charged with putting all the clues together from victims which turns out spans from the 1960's to current day. This begs the real question of is there more than one killer. They also work closely with forensic anthropologist Vivian Patel who is brought in to help identify when the victims were killed (which gives us a secondary romance between her and Blake).
This book is very explicit in describing the acts done to the victims (of real and the fiction ones from this book) but also about the sexual and physical abuse that most serial killers went through in their childhood that molded them into the killers they became. Lots of sick and interesting facts sprinkled through out the book.
The primary protagonist in the novel is Wyatt Thomas, a Forensic Psychiatrist, who is also a renowned author in the forensic fields. He has taken a sabbatical and gone up to the quiet mountain town of Crescent Hollow for some R & R and to complete his latest book. The cabin in which Wyatt is staying is adjacent to George Washington Jefferson National Forest where the dumping ground of a serial has just been discovered - Wait, is this One Killer or is there Three? Hold on to your seat, he's on the move, and he's so very sly!
The F.B.I. agents in charge include Annie Thomas, Wyatt's sister. Wyatt is encouraged to use his expertise in profiling to assist with the case. However, the deeper Wyatt probes, the more he realized that he himself has become the target of the stalker. Not just him, but his newly acquired love interest. The one woman Wyatt has waited for his entire life has become a target of the stalker also. It seems that Merrybell is being stalked every which way she turns. Will this killer of killer take his love when he has only just found it? Can he save her - can he even save himself? Or will they both become another part of the body dumping ground?
The F.B.I. agents called in to work the case include Annie Thomas, Wyatt's sister. Wyatt is encouraged to use his expertise in profiling to assist with case; however, the deeper Wyatt gets drawn into the case, the more he realizes that he himself is the one being stalked. Not just him, but his new love interest!
The one woman Wyatt has been waiting for all his life, he's finally met. Merrybell is also being stalked at every turn! Will this sadistic killer or killers steal her away, or does he have a chance to save her - can he even save himself, or will they too become a part of the body dumping ground?
Mrs. MacDonald has delivered another hit to add to the Thomas Family Series. Hollow Scream features a large cast of characters from previous books while focusing on Forensic Profiler Wyatt Thomas. I really enjoyed the true stories of famous serial killers that were included. It really lent credibility to Wyatt's professional career and writing while also giving the reader more insight into the twisted minds of true serial killers. This was a very well thought out, researched, and written story that I had a hard time putting down.
My only complaint, and it's really not a complaint, is I wish there had been more about the killers other victims and what happened to him after being caught.
All in all, I would highly recommend this book and the rest of the series to anyone looking for a good mystery/thriller.
