#BookReview: Silent Scream (South Shores #5) by Karen Harper

Synopsis: A violent past leads to a present danger…

When an old college roommate invites Claire Britten to join her on an archaeological dig at a Florida peat bog, it’s an offer the renowned forensic psychologist can’t refuse. Claire’s husband, criminal lawyer Nick Markwood, is comforted to see Claire working on a prehistoric burial site instead of an open grave for once. 

But Claire’s investigative instincts kick in when some of The Black Bog’s perfectly preserved corpses show signs of a grisly fate. What really happened to these people?

What started as an exploration of the past soon escalates into an all-too-current danger. Someone is watching—someone who really doesn’t want Claire digging into the past or Nick making connections to a current, violent murder case he’s investigating. 

The bog’s corpses may be long dead, but if Claire and Nick don’t figure out who’s gunning for a fresh kill, the next bodies to be discovered will be their own. 


Rating: ★★★★
My Review: I haven't read the first five titles to this series but I still really enjoyed this one.  I liked the pace and the story. The characters were great. And I will have to go back and read the first four books.  I will say that the twists and turns in this one I kind of saw coming but in the long run it didn't take away to much of the surprise aspect.   If you love this kind of story I would say check it out! 

Top-notch characters caught up in a thrilling novel of suspense! A must-read and a keeper.

Keeps the action and mystery going at full throttle right up to the very last chapter.

Harper, a master of suspense, keeps readers guessing about crime and love until the very end...of this thrilling tale.
-- "Booklist (starred review) on Fall from Pride"
