Scream by Mike Dellosso*A Review

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.

  I wasn’t required to write a review of Scream by Mike Dellosso, but after reading it I wanted everyone to know what an excellent book this is.
  This is the first book I’ve read by Mike Dellosso and I’ve found another favorite author.
  I just love this book; Scream is full of mystery, suspense and adrenaline rushing scenes.
  It is a book that makes you think and want to do something about all of the lost people you meet. Everyone is going to die, but they don’t have to be lost.
  The character Mark was brought up in a “Christian home,” but they were hypocritical, so Mark wants nothing to do with Christ or Christians. Then one day while talking to his best friend he hears some screams and they seemed to be from Hell itself. Not your normal screams, but hideous ones. Then his friend dies. This happens several times.
 Also this book is about a guy who kidnaps women and wants to make them pay for something that happened in his past. After a while these two stories intersect and you will find out what it takes to free and help others.
  This book is so well written, full of interesting ideas and suspenseful that you won’t put it down. I love this kind of book and so glad I have a new favorite author to read his books. A five star book. I highly recommend this book.
  Right now this book in the eBook format is free. So just go to Amazon and you should be able to get it.
