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.
Watch out for more from D.I. Kim Stone
A Detective hiding dark secrets, Kim Stone will stop at nothing to protect the innocent.  Silent Scream is the first book in the series – watch out for EVIL GAMES coming soon. 
What people are saying about Silent Scream
A superb debut by an assured new writer. Blending sharp wit with emotion, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride alongside DI Kim Stone and look forward to the next outing.’  Mel Sherratt
'I absolutely loved it! ... This one is one of the best crime thrillers I've read in a long time, and that includes mainstream authors such as James Patterson! I would seriously put this book in the same league.' Fiona’s Book Reviews
I have not been so impressed by a debut novel in a long time, and I'm actually now itching for more from D.I. Kim Stone and the rest of her squad. …D.I. Kim Stone is like the British Jane Rizzoli. She's so ballsy and doesn't understand the meaning of the word no. I LOVE heroines who just do what they want and sod the consequences and Kim did that, right from the beginning as people keep turning up dead, people who are all connected to a children's home that burned down.
If you were ever wondering how to write a gripping, wholly engaging crime novel, just have a read of Silent Scream and marvel at how Angela Marsons has done it. I can't wait for the second book, because this one was a top-notch crime thriller.’  Leah Loves
‘I started reading ‘Silent Scream’ thinking I would just read a few chapters. I ended up reading it all… I love it when an author chooses a dark topic and does it incredibly well… An excellent read and one I would happily recommend.’ Northern Crime
‘This is a fantastic debut novel by Marsons. The blurb said that if you were a fan of Val McDermid and Mark Billingham you would love this book and being a huge fan of both I thought I would give it a go and I was pleasantly surprised… With lots of twists and turns this is a real page turner and I would highly recommend it.’ The Laughing Librarian

    Thought the book well written and kept you on your toes as to what would happen next. Seems to have been well researched and would recommend it when you have time to sit and read it on a regular basis otherwise you’ll be frustrated at not being able to pick it up.

    This book was a brilliant read. It was exciting the whole way through, with loads of twists and turns. At the revealing parts I was gripped with my jaw dropped as the story unfolded. I couldn't put it down!

    I loved this book, very readable and very clever keeping my interest throughout. Unfortunately I did not like the continued use of Jesus Christ as swear words and would have preferred the book without this blasphemy. Interestingly non of the other swearing bothered me as the characters fitted the language. Some excellent descriptive phrases and verbal banter.

    Enjoyed reading this very much and found it a real 'page turner'. Has all the elements of a good crime novel: interesting characters, multiple suspects, likeable and dislikable personae and a flawed hero. Well worth a read.
