The DUI shattered Adrianna Barrington's life as she lost the baby she was carrying and her husband Craig Thornton never came out of the coma. Although the other driver drunkenly caused the accident, Adrianna went bankrupt to pay the medical bills; finally leading to her selling her family estate.

However, the buyer demands the family graveyard be relocated, but when the extraction begins, more bodies are found than should be there. Detective Gage Hudson investigates. Soon afterward three females who knew Craig vanish while Adrianna receives calls and cards from allegedly her dead husband claiming he misses his wife and will soon come for her.

This is a tense romantic suspense that grips the audience from the moment Adrianna receives an anniversary card from the grave. The story line is fast paced throughout with the "required" romantic subplot taking a needed back seat to the thriller elements especially that of a serial killer who either is her husband whom the beleaguered heroine interred though he is not in his coffin or something or someone else playing Craig's life, but motive remains elusive. Dying Scream is a taut serial killer investigative thriller.

    Highly Recommended

    Like any other book that Mary Burton writes, this is a thriller that keeps you reading. Even though the plot that has a framework equal to her other thrillers, there is enough variation and diversity to read each book again as if totally new.
    This book is for people who are avid readers of detective novels.
    Yes I would recommend this book for club discussions.

    Wonderful Read

    This book was great. It reminded me of all the reasons I love Mary Burton. I started reading and was immediately drawn into the story of Adrianna Barrington and couldn't wait to see how Ms. Burton was going to resolve the story. She is an incredible talent and I love to read her novels. I love her characters and who storytelling ability.
