This should be in your must read list. In fact, Scream by Mike Dellosso should be required reading for church groups. Mr. Dellosso did an incredible job with this book! While I enjoyed The Hunted this book, Scream surpassed it. When I read the first part of the book, where Mr. Dellosso has been dealing with cancer, right then and there I started crying and praying. I couldn't help it. My Mother, as well as some other close family members, have had cancer. I instantly wound up feeling close to Mr. Dellosso and knew this was going to be one powerful book with a far reaching impact. (And I was also excited because Mr. Dellosso is a member of
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance, as of course am I, and it just made reviewing his books all the more fun!!!)
Yes, Scream is all that and more. It is very well written, the momentum never stops and the characters are extremely realistic. I felt close to more than one of them, as though they were people I know from my own life. I really liked the way that Mark Stone was hearing the screams from hell. That was done so very very well. This is one book that will keep people thinking for a long time after they read it. It had a wonderful yet slightly bitter-sweet ending. (Nope, I don't tell the endings... you have to go read it yourself!)

ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
