Angela Marsons was born and raised in the Black Country and still lives there, along with her long-term partner, as well as a bouncy Labrador and a potty-mouthed African Grey parrot. Although she has been writing since her early teens, Silent Scream was her first novel.
DI Kim Stone is the most fascinating character to arrive on the scene since Val McDermid gave us Tony Hill.I don't think I've been so hooked by a new author since the discovery of Mark Edwards or Mark Billingham . . . if you finish a crime thriller feeling like you just need to have a lie-down and a cup of tea to get your breath back, then the writer has done their job. Angela Marsons, I still don't have my breath back - Reading Room with a ViewI'm a little bit speechless to be honest at just how incredible this book was... one of the best new crime authors of 2015, maybe even the decade - Book Addict ShaunAngela Marsons is fast becoming THE one to watch in this genre and I would defy anyone not to read and enjoy her writing . . . She truly has a brilliant mind and this book did not disappoint . . . This story has everything, it is riveting, emotional, sad and most of all it has a depth that not many novels can claim to have . . . I highly recommend this one, simply brilliant - Postcard ReviewsA superb debut by an assured new writer. Blending sharp wit with emotion, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride alongside DI Kim Stone and look forward to the next outing.
