Review: DI Kim Stone is still tying up loose ends with the Dunn case when she is burdened with the murder of Allan Harris. I’m sorry did I say “tying up loose ends”? Well it seems as if there was a second person present in the room while Leonard Dunn was sexually assaulting his two young girls.
The murder of Mr. Harris isn’t as simple as it may seem to everyone else in the detective’s unit. DI Stone is on her own when it comes to proving that the well renowned Dr. Alexandra Thorne has anything to do with it. But facing Alex could mean unraveling the binds that keep her family secrets locked up tight where they are safest.
HOLY CRAP! As I’ve said on Twitter, Angie is a thrill ride genius! Ok, where do I start on this one?
The complexity of this story is mindboggling. First of all you have two cases working simultaneously. But one of the cases is actually three, no four, no five… oh heck, several cases in one. But don’t get overwhelmed by that. Marsons does an amazing job giving little hints to jog your memory on which part of which case each of these characters belong throughout the book. Making it easier to keep up.
My minor complaint in the first book about character development of the other detectives was addressed in this book and I enjoyed getting to know each of them a little better. I also really liked seeing a bit more depth in the relationship between Kim and Bryant. You see a bit more of their understanding of one another and Kim even throws Bryant a little bone at the end.
Now the obvious…Alex. Marsons obviously did her homework when it comes to sociopaths! I’m tempted to give away too much, but I want you to read the book! It scared me how well Marsons was able to throw herself into the mind of someone so sick. Alex is brilliant and absolutely brilliantly written. Mix brilliance and take away a conscience and what do you get? Evil. And her games are certainly that!
That leaves me with one question… Angela Marsons, when can we expect book three?!
Oh, and FYI, unlike most series, you won’t be lost if you read this one first. However, Silent Scream was fabulous and shouldn’t be missed!
