One Scream Away by Kate Brady (partial book review)

One Scream Away by Kate Brady

Publisher: Hachette Books

I just wanted to post my thoughts so far as this is my review date - This is a fantastic page turner and it is a debut novel for Kate Brady! I am about half way through the book and just reached what I would have considered the climax - But I still have 200 pages to go so I can't wait to see what is going to happen next!

Here is the synopsis from the back of the book: Seven years ago Beth Denison was attacked by a killer named Chevy Bankes. Since then, she's created a new life for herself and her daughter, one far removed from the night that ended in an awful tragedy. But now Bankes is out of prison, and his chilling phone calls tell Beth he's coming for her.

Ex-FBI agent Neil Sheridan is driven to investigate a chain of murders eerily similar to a disturbing case from his past. When the killer's trail dead-ends at Beth's doorstep, Neil finds a beautiful woman with a secret she'll do anything to keep. Yet even as Beth surrenders to Neil's protection - and then his embrace - she still refuses to tell him why Bankes hungers to hear her scream, and why she'll soon consider doing the unthinkable: face Bankes alone.

This is the first book in the Sheridan series - the next being Last to Die expected out in July of 2010. I will try to get a complete review written next week - but if the last 200 pages are as good as the first 200 pages all I will have to say is WOW!

Holy penguins! You are right about this being a page turner. I couldn't put it down until I finished it. My review and giveaway will be up tomorrow. Brady sure knows how to keep the reader on the edge of their seats!
