There are times when the habit of reading does not make any sense. I am sure, that is the story for a lot of us right now. And has been for the past few months. But, how much time does one spend brooding over things, or overthinking things to no purpose? Slowly and surely we will jump back on the reading train.
No One Will Hear Your Screams is a thriller, as one can deduce from the title itself. What I did not realise was that it was a part of a series as well. Thomas O’Callaghan‘s No One Will Hear Your Screams can be read as a standalone, but once you’ve read it, I can assure you, you definitely want more of the same.
A medical examiner’s observations leads to an investigation that unveils many many ghastly incidents. Abuse, murder, arson, and a lot of chilling criminal acts before the investigating team actually gets a clue. There is a grotesqueness in Thomas O’Callaghan‘s No One Will Hear Your Screams that needs multiple trigger warnings.
A good police investigation, and an excellent team is a part of this book. The dynamics of the team and their individual personas are very interesting as well. Hot on the heels of a deranged serial killer, and unlikely witnesses and clues, Thomas O’Callaghan‘s No One Will Hear Your Screams serves up a chilling read. One excellent in writing and plot.
Is there anything I did not like about this book? Well, I would have liked the story behind the killer’s spree. There are enough hints through out the book as to what set him off, one or many incidents could have led to it. But it stops just short of painting a clearer picture. I guess it is true that one can never pinpoint a particular place in time when in such cases. It would have been a slow build.
Thomas O’Callaghan‘s No One Will Hear Your Screams is an excellent read for lovers of this genre. As mentioned before there are triggers for rape, abuse, and a lot more. If you haven’t yet read a chilling thriller, this one is not for you. But for those who have, No One Will Hear Your Screams can prove to be riveting.
