Overview

LURED ONTO A YACHT...

Although Salem, Massachusetts, once echoed with the screams of tortured women, it has long since been a quiet New England fishing village...until one warm summer day, when the peace was shattered by the cries of a young woman meeting a grisly fate.

TRAGICALLY CUT DOWN IN THE PRIME OF LIFE...

Happily married, Martha Brailsford was a lovely, talented young artist with a big heart who agreed to go for a sail with her neighbor Tom Maimoni. Little did she know that beneath his mild-mannered exterior, and behind his tearful tale of losing his wife to cancer, Maimoni was a cunning sociopath and pathological liar who had been married to four different women.

RUTHLESSLY PLUNGED INTO THE SEA...

The truth about Maimoni would surface only after Martha's body— nude, skeletonized, and with an anchor wrapped around it— turned up in the traps of a local lobsterman. As tranquil, idyllic Salem reeled from the shocking, sordid discovery, women began to come forward with their own tales of Maimoni's lies and depraved behavior.

Told with chilling detail, A Scream on the Water is the frightening account of a beloved young woman, a sadistic killer, and a violent struggle that ended in death on a dark and lonely Salem night.

    A thriller

    I didn't want to put this book down. (It's a shame it is a true story.) We'll never know what really happened out on that boat, but Margaret Press's research and storytelling makes an excellent 'best guess' in this tale of mystery.
