Publisher's Summary

The brilliant thriller from the incomparable Karen Rose, in which an arson leads to murder and blackmail, and David Hunter, who first appeared in Don't Tell, leads a desperate search for those responsible. Firelight, fire bright...

Four kids set fire to a supposedly empty condominium block. But when they see the girl at an upper-floor window desperately banging on the glass, they realise their mistake. Although they don't all agree, the group leave the girl to her certain death, little realising that someone is watching their every move. Someone who has a nasty habit of blackmail...

For local fire fighter David Hunter, getting the blaze under control is hard enough, but when he finds the girl's body he realises that this arson attack has become a murder case and the homicide cops are immediately called in. Now, as David works with the cops, it's a race to find the arsonists, and the blackmailer, before events escalate out of all control.

The story was good but.....

I found the reader voices very hard to listen too, I nearly gave up on the book so many times.

Not a good book

The story is muddled. The reader gives unnecessary emphasis to the male and female characters so the reading is not pleasant.

annoying narrating

What did you like best about Silent Scream? What did you like least?

it's a typical Karen Rose book, it's lovely to 'meet' character from other Karen Rose books.
I just wish the whole porn aspect wasn't there, it's not really great when listening when there are other ppl around esp children. That's the one thing I don't like about her books

Would you be willing to try another one of Tara Ward’s performances?

No. her annoying habit of giving characters weird accents depending on their names completely ruins the book for me.

Any additional comments?

I wish they wouldn't use Tara Ward to narrate as she seems to be incapable to give characters different voices other than fake accents, so off putting

Not One of Her Best

The only thing I like about this book was the story line. Some of the bad points for me where it had a lot of bad language in it which wasn't necessary. I also read the first book in the series and the way the character's are portrayed in each of the books are so different I hated the fact that in this book Olivia is portrayed weak and always looking for the men's approval and I will not be listing to any book narrated by Tara Ward in the future she really bad at speaking in different accent's she really does the book an injustice and I know she is the reason why I think this book has a lot of bad points because I love Karen Rose and have always love reading her books

Another great read

Karen Rose definitely has a magic formula. With the main characters having appeared in a previous book you feel like you know them already. Can't wait for the next one.
