Kim Stone is a Detective Inspector at the Halesowen Station. She has three detectives under her: Detective Constable Stacey Wood, Detective Sergeant Bryant, and Detective Sergeant Kevin Dawson. They are investigating the killing of Teresa Wyatt. Teresa was the 47 year old principal of a private boys’ school. As they are investigating her murder, Tom Curtis is murdered. The team tries to find out what a link between the two people. Their investigation leads them to Crestwood.
Crestwood was a home for troubled girls in the system (foster children and orphans). Looking around Crestwood they discover the bodies of young girls. Both Teresa Wyatt and Tom Curtis worked at Crestwood. Who killed these young girls and why is someone killing off former staff members of Crestwood? Who will be next? Kim and her team set out to solve these killings. They will have to look at the former staff members as well as the girls who used to live at Crestwood.
Kim Stone will also have to deal with memories of her own childhood. Kim had a horrible childhood and lost a brother due to her mother who is a paranoid schizophrenic.
Silent Scream is a great mystery. The characters are unique and complex. The book is well-written. There is some British slang (especially regarding food). There is a great twist at the end of the book. I was able to figure out who were the killers, but was shocked by the turn of events at the end. I cannot wait for the next D.I. Kim Stone book! I give Silent Scream 4.5 out of 5 stars.
This novel is exceptionally well written. The plot is intelligent, with depth and order, while also providing the reader with plenty of twists and turns.
Good character development and a wide variety of different characters. This is probably the only aspect I had slight problems with, as I did struggle at first to keep track of the many characters that were introduced early on in the book. I ended up writing a list to help me keep track of them, but it became easier as the story progressed. This wasn’t helped by me only having a few minutes each evening to read. I would definitely recommend setting aside a couple of hours to initially get into this novel.
D.I. Kim Stone is a strong and interesting character. At first, I found her a little hard & blunt (not that this is a bad thing), but I also enjoyed seeing a softer side to her, especially with the way she was with Lucy.
This novel keeps on improving throughout and can be hard to put down. If I had the available time I would definitely have read this much quicker.
This was full of mystery, action, sensitive issues, and various relationships between characters. It left me with some very strong images after reading it. Occasionally, some novels leave me thinking they would be great for TV or film. This was definitely one of them.
I’m looking forward to reading more books in this series in the future, and wish Angela the best of luck with her debut novel.
I would like to thank the publisher, Bookouture for allowing me a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Although Angela Marsons' books came out earlier, I read (and LOVED) Patricia Gibney's Lottie Parker series first - and these books are very similar in style. So if you've read Patricia Gibney and loved her, then run (don't walk!) to collect Angels Marsons' Kim Stone book series!
DI Kim Stone is the lead investigator on a case involving some current dead people and old bones found at an orphanage for girls. This like in the description is what drew me in: "They had all taken turns to dig. An adult-sized hole would have taken longer..." C.R.E.E.P.Y.
First, let me start at the end. I read the start of the ending while I was half asleep last night. This morning I woke up thinking I'd read it wrong. No. I didn't. Correctly, it was read! My sleepy little brain was thrown for a loop. Woah, I was not expecting that. Everyone loves a twisty ending in a dark book, right?
DI Kim Stone. Love her to pieces! Perfectly flawed with an attitude problem and a big heart. When the investigation came to a close, she had notched up two formal complaints, disregarded direct instructions on three occasions, and ran out of fingers to count how many protocols she failed to follow. Whoops.
The cover was perfect for this book. The storm clouds looming warm my heart. I love nothing better than reading a book during a good storm. Great cover art!
All in all, I gave Angela Marsons' Silent Scream 4 wonderful little happy stars. Watch out books 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6... I'm coming for you!
