Otherworldly Screams . . .
A Madman on the Loose . . .
This Time the Stakes Are Higher Than Ever

While talking to his friend on the phone, Mark Stone is startled by a cacophony of otherworldly screams. Seconds later, a tragic accident claims his friend's life. When this happens several more times—screams followed by an untimely death—he is compelled to act.

Battling his failure as a husband and struggling with his own damaged faith, Mark embarks on a mission to find the meaning behind the screams and hopefully stop Death from calling on its next victim. When his estranged wife is kidnapped and he again hears the screams as she calls from her cell phone, his search becomes much more personal and much more urgent.

Margie's comments: Finally, a book I actually finished on time. :) Mostly because I could not put it down! "Hearing" the screams with Mark throughout the story made me cringe. What a powerful message of redemption, forgiveness, and choosing to embrace life to the fullest, which is only realized in a true relationship with Jesus Christ. The story is well-written, and the message is even more powerful when you realize that Mike was facing his own battle with man's mortality as he wrote Scream. The characters are well-developed . . . real. And the unexpected twist (revelation) near the end almost caught me by surprise. If you like supernatural suspense, then this book is a must read!
