REVIEW for Dying Scream

Thank you to Joan Schulhafer at Joan Schulhafer Publishing for sending me a copy of this book.

TITLE: Dying Scream

AUTHOR: Mary Burton

GENRE: Thriller

RATING: 4 Stars

When I owned my bookstore 4 years ago, Mary Burton was a very popular seller - but for some reason, I always thought that her books were kind of tame, although I had never read one before.

I could not have been more wrong as I soon discovered by reading Dying Scream. Burton has now instantly become a favorite author of the genre.

In Dying Scream, I found a wonderful plot, full of horrible murders and a more horrible man, all of it entertwined with dirty secrets that have been kept by a family that has as many secrets as they have money.

I thought I had the whole "whodunnit" figured out a few times, while reading this one, but I kept getting it wrong - Burton totally was manipulating me :0) and I loved it.

This one is great - wonderful pace and a bunch of dead bodies - just what a good thriller needs.
