Dying Scream




The killing just won’t stop as a ruthless psychopath revisits his greatest obsession—but this time, a Richmond, Virginia, homicide detective is determined to stop him in his bloody tracks . . .

Mary Burton's crime novel Dying Scream gives new meaning to the word suspense.


NO ONE WILL FIND YOU

An aspiring artist. A high-school senior. A stripper. Three women who seemed to have nothing in common except their sudden disappearance. But one man knew them all. Wealthy, privileged Craig Thornton even claimed to love them. And for that, they paid the ultimate price.



NO ONE WILL HEAR YOU

When Adrianna Barrington receives an anniversary card from her husband Craig, she assumes it's a sick joke. After all, Craig is dead. But then come the whispered phone calls and beautiful flowers, all reminding her how much Craig misses her. While Adrianna begins to doubt her sanity, grisly remains are found on the Thornton estate. Detective Gage Hudson is convinced the bodies are linked to Craig. But the biggest shocks are yet to come.



NO ONE WILL SAVE YOU

A psychopath has taken up his chilling work again, each death a prelude to the moment when Adrianna is under his control at last. And the only way for Gage and Adrianna to stop him is to uncover the truth about a family's dark past and a twisted love that someone will kill for again and again. . .

Another classic from the American Queen of crime. Fans of Tess Gerritsen, Kathy Reichs, and Karin Slaughter will love Mary Burton's Dying Scream. Much like The Seventh Victim and Before She Dies, Dying Scream will have its readers in horrified suspense.

Praise for Mary Burton:

'A twisted tale . . . I couldn't put it down!' Lisa Jackson

'Stieg Larsson fans will find a lot to like in Burton's taut, well-paced novel' Publishers Weekly
