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.
Mike Dellosso writes edge-of-your-seat suspense with a supernatural twist. He is a former newspaper columnist and has written feature articles for various industry publications. He is also a popular conference speaker and workshop instructor. Mike resides in Pennsylvania with his wife and four daughters.

Jennifer @ Quiverfullfamily.com3 Stars Out Of 5Somewhat FormulaicJuly 13, 2012Jennifer @ Quiverfullfamily.comMark Stone starts hearing a cacophony of agonizing screams when he talks with people on the telephone. These screams are followed soon after by the death of the person he spoke to on the phone. When he hears these same fearful screams when speaking to his wife (whom he is separated from) he springs into action as he tries to save her.
Though not Mike Dellosso's first novel, Scream is the first work of his that I read. Dellosso successfully weaves the strands of suspense, and redemption together into a fast-paced thriller. While some parts of the novel are somewhat formulaic (such as the spiritual tie ins) and unsurprising, he does manage to pull off a surprise twist at the end that I didn't see coming.
If you're just starting to read Dellosso though, I recommend some of his later works - Darlington Woods or Darkness Follows (both of which I have also reviewed) in which his writing has become more polished. Both offer premises that are more unique than a kidnapping style suspense story, and are more engaging because of it. If you just can't get enough Dellosso though, this is a decent novel - just not his best work.

Whenever I read the back of a book, sometimes it does not match the story, but with Scream, it was dead on. If creepy and suspense are your thing, don't miss this book.
