Hear Them Scream (2019) by Kristen Middleton, K.L. Middleton and Cassie Alexandra is an intriguing thriller which easily keeps your attention throughout.
The story is told from two perspectives. On one hand we see the story through the eyes of Whitney Halverson and on the other hand through the eyes of the mysterious killer called The Director. The is a Summit Lake murder mystery where two young women are killed at the hands of a secret killer who wants to record their screams for movies he is making for the eerie side of the internet. The second woman he kills is Whitney’s twin sister Brittany when he is attempting to recreate Psycho’s shower scene. Following the disappearance of Brittany at first, Whitney begins investigating. She had been due to join her sister for a holiday when her sister ran into this psycho recreating Psycho.
What ensues is a fantastic thriller with so many suspects and twists and turns that readers will find themselves on the edge of their seats throughout. Is the Director acting alone or not? Who can Whitney trust if anyone? And with so little leads, can she ever get justice for her sister?
It is a fantastic read. The authors do a great job of making so many people suspects whether that’s as the Director or as an accomplice of the Director. I won’t say the Director’s actual identity never crossed my mind while reading but then practically every male character in the story did so that’s great writing! The story is also as much about the love and bond between Whitney and Brittany as the murder mystery element and their love and bond for each other makes you care as a reader so much. We get great backstory on their relationship and feel like we are truly on the journey to capturing this mysterious killer with Whitney.
Very engrossing. A real page-turner and a great mystery read for Halloween!
