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?

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

'Stunning' Mail on Sunday

'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 …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… I can't wait for the second book, because this one was a top-notch crime thriller.’ Leah Loves

’I don't think I've been so hooked by a new author since the discovery of Mark Edwards or Mark Billingham… Silent Scream gets 5 stars from me – if you finish a crime thriller feeling like you just need to have a lie-down and a cup of tea to get your breath back, then the writer has done their job. Angela Marsons, I still don't have my breath back.’ Reading Room with a View

‘Normally when I see everybody rating a book five stars I think 'Is it really that good?' Silent Scream is that good, and then some… The only problem Angela now faces is keeping up this standard as the series progresses, but if she does than she's going to be an author to watch and a huge star within the genre.’ Book Addict Shaun

‘I started reading ‘Silent Scream’ thinking I would just read a few chapters. I ended up reading it all… 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.’ The Laughing Librarian

‘It's highly unusual for me to find a book that leads me to put my life on hold. But Angela Marson's Silent Scream has led me to virtually abandon work for the last day, even with deadlines looming… ticks all the boxes for a 5* rating from me: a well written flowing story; strong but vulnerable protagonist; fast pace; intrigue; twists and turns until several final OMG moments; plenty of action; and the revealing of a brutal murderer.’ Off the Shelf

Brilliant read!

Detective Kim Stone, bad ass policewomen with a horrific past, the details of which are given to the reader throughout this novel, finds herself fighting to keep heading a case close to her heart. The death of a seemingly hard working and devoted headmistress leads to the discovery of a body in a shallow grave in the grounds of a long closed down children’s home. As Stone delves deeper in to the staff and residents the body count rises. Can she solve this case whilst there is anyone left who can help her do so? This book hits the ground running and doesn’t pause for breath, straight away the reader is drawn into a fast paced and brilliant who dunit the outcome of which I’d never have guessed. Within minutes of finishing Silent Scream I had ordered the next instalment, Evil Games.

Well, what can I say except…..that was brilliant. 5* and more.

I didn’t warm to DI Kim Stone very much in the first few chapters. The words tetchy, abrasive and rude sprung to mind so much so that I wanted to give her a good slap. Then slowly I picked up a sense of humour, and a ‘terrier that won’t let go’ attitude to her work.

What a brilliant way to introduce us to D.I. Kim Stone

My Review:

A book that lives up to the hype

 on 14 March 2015
By Jill's Book Cafe
There has been a lot of hype about this book which described itself as “an edge of your seat serial killer thriller” having read it I’m pleased to say that for once the hype is merited and it is a great read. The fact that it is a debut novel makes the discovery even more exciting as hopefully it means more of the same to come.

Home is not always Home

A murder immediately followed by a fire, a drunk has his throat cut and a dog in killed, cruelly. An old children’s home, corruption, several buried bodies and an extremely brave young woman form the basis of this book. Kim (Stone) is affected by this as it reminds her so much about her poor childhood. This book is helped with little elements of humour on a very dark subject and it is difficult to work out the murderer. This it the first book I have read in this series and have just ordered all that are currently available as enjoyed it a great deal

The first of the D.I Kim Stone novels and the start of an addiction….I’ve raced through the first four and am quickly catching up with Angela Marsons! Silent Scream is pacy and gripping, and the characters are beautifully drawn. Kim Stone is a difficult person to like – and yet I do like her. She doesn’t make friends, but if she did, I would like to be her friend. Unlike several other female detectives, who are so obnoxious and unprofessional that they are unbelievable, I could identify with Kim Stone and was rooting for her rather than irritated by her. The plot is unusual and I didn’t predict the outcome so I highly recommend this and the subsequent Kim Stone novels.
