Meanwhile, across the pond, Dai Williams, in Battersea London, safe inside his improvised Faraday cage, is coming to terms with his special talents – talents that will take ‘getting-into-the-mind-of-the-killer’ to a whole new level.
Al-Qaeda? Drugs Cartels? Internet freaks? David Graham’s The Screaming leaves no possibility untouched as Dai enters a bizarre and horrifying world where kids scream.
” So many elements fit into one book“
Five Star Review on Amazon By Robin Perron “Robin”
Set in Kansas City and the UK, The Screaming by David Graham is a suspense filled, paranormal murder mystery novel with a hint of romance. With so many components, it really has something for every reader.
The Screaming opens with High School baseball star Brandon Marshall waking up in his room, stripping naked, and proceeds to go down stairs with an erection and a gun to murder his parents before masturbating and killing himself. And he does all of this in front of his one year old triplet siblings. With an opening like this you will do one of two things, close the book in horror, or keep reading out of morbid curiosity. If you are like me, you will choose the later. If you are not, let me assure you, this novel is not all gore and is definitely worth reading. Spanning to continents, Graham takes you on a journey with Sergeant Dale Franklin and his partner Steven as they investigate this case and how it connects to others like it in the UK. In this novel you will get elements of paranormal activity, gore, intrigue, romance, and even humor and somehow they all fit perfectly. If all of Grahams work is this good then I can’t wait to read more.
About the Author
The author lives in an ostensibly carbon zero house with his two cats amidst orchards of apples and poly-tunnels of strawberries. A 3G mobile network mast stands camouflaged as a tree in an adjacent field. When he isn’t enjoying the Kentish landscape and torrential rain, his mind is drawn to strange imaginings about what lurks beneath the surface of the world around him. This is his fourth novel.
