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?… (mehr)

Kim and her team's next case involves an abandoned state run facility called Crestwood where kids and teens were sent who had been removed from their homes for a variety of reasons. This hits close to home since Kim spent a great deal of time in places like this one during her childhood. When an archaeological dig is planned in a field near Crestwood, evidence is found that bodies of some of the children had been buried there. Kim's team investigates the personnel who worked at the facility as they are being murdered one by one.

Silent Scream does a good job of connecting the present-day murders of the personnel from the facility to the murders of the children in the past. Throughout the novel, the murderer speaks to the reader through the use of italicized print, and that is how we find out what happened to the missing girls. The actual culprit is a little bit predictable, but overall this is a good mystery and serves as the basis for this series. ( )

UPDATE: I increased my rating to five stars after the second read. I know Kim more intimately now. The way she handles her team and the people she interviews don't seem as harsh. I like this character a lot.

** After reading the book I purchased the audio version. The audio is well done. I will buy more audios with future book purchases in this series.

There is nothing better than a tightly woven police procedural that grabs me from the start. Silent Scream by Angela Marsons is the first book in the D.I. Kim Stone series and I find myself captured from the beginning. I love the main character, Kim Stone. She comes from a traumatic past that has her building walls higher and higher to keep everyone out of her life. In many ways, her defense mechanism works in her personal life. As far as her professional life, her team follows her without question. The team loyalty is both good and bad because DI Stone doesn’t always follow the rules. It is interesting watching her take risks while protecting her staff and keeping them out of the line of fire.

The case is very complex full of twists and turns. The common thread is an old orphan home and dark events that happened years ago. It seems everyone has something to hide and anyone of them could be the murderer. From start to finish the story is dark and often terrifying. I go back and forth trying to figure out who-dun-it. The path isn’t straight but twisted along with the twisted characters.

I must comment on the ancillary characters. The development of both the good guys (detective staff) and the bad guys is well done. By the end of the book, I am very interested in Bryant, Kim’s partner, and the other detectives. There is very little to like about the former employees of the home. They are mostly seedy and didn't learn anything from their past mistakes.

As a British procedural, it takes a few chapters to get into the flow with the slang and such. That said, I am on a kick watching British TV, and this book fits right in with them. I will move on to book two in the series. I want to know more about Kim and her crew. I recommend Silent Scream to anyone who enjoys a good, dark thriller. Caution: strong stomach needed. ( )
