Review: Scream by Mike Dellosso



Scream by Mike Dellosso
Realms / 2009
Find on: Amazon, Goodreads

About the book:


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.

My thoughts:

Scream is the second book I've read by Mike Dellosso and, like Frantic, I loved it! Scream was such a great suspense novel that had some supernatural elements. The book definitely made me think about how everyone has an appointment with death and the importance of trusting in Jesus alone for salvation.

I really liked the characters. I was surprised that women were kidnapped in Scream (I obviously didn't read the description well), but I have to say, I did guess who "Judge" was early on in the book. Still, I found myself "on the edge" of my seat in suspense a LOT (especially towards the end).

The whole screams aspect of the story was very weird, but it did make the novel more intriguing.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Scream and definitely recommend it if you enjoy suspense books that have some supernatural elements.
