Beth Denison was brutally attacked by Chevy Bankes seven years ago. Her friend Anne Chaney
was killed by him. As a result, Bankes was imprisoned. But now he has been released and is
determined to find and kill Beth.
Beth has made a new life for herself and her daughter. Now she and her daughter are being
threatened by Bankes. He is a crazy serial killer who tortures and murders, spreading terror
through the Seattle area. His victims are made to resemble antique dolls.
Ex-FBI agent Neil Sheridan joins the investigation through a connection with Bankes' earlier
murders. When Bankes invades Beth's home, Neil is able to track him, and attempts to break
through Beth's wall of silence.
One Scream Away is a suspenseful romantic thriller. It also reads like a good police
procedural, with gritty, harrowing accounts of the murders. The suspense is chilling, with
page-turning action. The dialogue is snappy with just enough romance to lighten a few pages.
