Silent Screams
By Annette Gisby  

     Annette Gisby has created a masterful thriller with her novel, Silent Screams. It grabs you by the throat from the very first page and does not let you go until the last page is turned.

     Jessica is a troubled young girl whose life is full of secrets--dark secrets that she can’t tell. She believes she would be better off dead than living in the hell in which she finds herself. She slashes her wrists. ‘Someone was calling her, calling her back from the darkness, the emptiness. The voice was faint but getting stronger. She struggled to open her eyes, but they rebelled against the bright lights. Was this heaven, then?’

He is stalking her. He says she has been a naughty girl; naughty girls have to be punished. ‘Footsteps. Footsteps on the stairs. She heard the last stair creaking. Any minute now. She jumped from the bed and dived underneath it. It was useless to hide, she knew he would find her. As her bedroom door opened, she held her breath and peaked out. First she saw the shiny black shoes and the bottoms of black trousers. She had always wondered about the black. She had always assumed that the devil would wear red.’

     If only Jessica could tell the secrets. But who would believe her? ‘She tried to scream, but no sound escaped from her locked throat. Her screams, as always, were silent.’

Silent Screams is Annette Gisby’s first full-length novel, but I am sure it won’t be her last. If you like thrillers, this is one you don’t want to miss. It is powerful.
