First Chapter/First Paragraph ~Teaser Tuesday – Silent Scream by Angela Marsons

Happy Tuesday!


Today I am linking up with Vicki @ I’d Rather Be At The Beach who hosts a meme every Tuesday to share the First Chapter/First Paragraph or two of the book you are currently reading.

I’m also once again joining The Purple Booker with Teaser Tuesday. It’s easy to join – just grab your current read, open it to a random page, and share two teaser sentences being careful not to include any spoilers.

*I finished this book over the weekend. I enjoyed it so much that I decided I wanted to take a couple passages from it and share it with you. The teaser is an example of the subtle humor throughout the book. 

First Chapter/First Paragraph

Chapter 1

Teresa Wyatt had the inexplicable feeling that this night would be her last.

She switched off the television and the house fell quiet. It wasn’t the normal silence that descended each evening as she and her home gently closed down and unwound towards bedtime.

“Hey, Detective,” he said, looking around her. “Where’s Bryant?”

“Jesus, we’re not joined at the hip.”

“Yeah but you’re like a Chinese dish. Sweet and sour pork…but without Bryant you’re just sour…”

Goodreads Synopsis

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?

  1. I really liked the opening and the teaser but the synopsis makes it sound extremely dark. And the not an adult sized grave puts me off a bit, too. I hope you enjoy it and I’ll look forward to your thoughts when you’ve finished the book. Here’s the link to my FCFP and TTT:
