No One To Hear You Scream [Paperback]

I've finished "No One to Hear You Scream" by Julia Madeleine.

Product Description

In upstate New York, Brett and Pamela Jameson find the house of their dreams on twenty acres of land. Bucolic and serene, it is the answer to all of their prayers. But their dream soon turns into a nightmare when violent ex-gang member Rory Madden, the property’s former owner returns and will stop at nothing to reclaim the home he lost to foreclosure. Rory unearths the secrets hidden within the Jameson family and begins to leverage his knowledge to slowly drive wedges between them. When their seventeen year-old daughter Justine falls prey to Rory’s advances, she becomes a co-conspirator, setting about a series of increasingly treacherous events that could forever tear the Jameson family apart. A terrifying odyssey into the dark side of the American dream, No One to Hear You Scream captures the fear of the modern middle-class, the alienation of those left out, and the heart-stopping terror at the realization that it can all be taken away in an instant.

My Review:

I highly recommend reading this if you enjoy reading a truly terrifying thriller.

This book has great characterization, twisting plots and high octave action through out the whole book.

Justine Jameson is a teenage single mother of an infant baby who has recently moved back in with her father and stepmother after the failure of her relationship with the baby's father. Her parents' relationship is hanging by a thread as is her father's business.

Justine hears things; voices in her head warning her of a horrible fate awaiting her child, warning her she is incapable of caring for a baby and making her fear for her very sanity.

When the dysfunctional family buys a recently foreclosed home in a tiny and isolated New York town things go from bad to worse for Justine. Her father works long hours attempting to save his business, her self-involved stepmother disappears for long stretches at a time and Justine feels isolated and alone until she meets Rory Madden the a bad-boy Irish expatriate who sweeps her off her feet.

But Rory Madden isn't exactly what or who he appears. He's a former Irish terrorist turned drug dealer and when she discovers a strange text message on her stepmother's cell phone a deadly chain of events is set into motion that threatens everything Justine Jameson holds dear and death and destruction lurks around every corner.
