Summary

Innocence dies so easily. Evil lives again...and again...and again.

One hundred years ago in Port Arbello a pretty little girl began to scream. And struggle. And die. No one heard. No one saw. Just one man whose guilty heart burst in pain as he dashed himself to death in the sea.

Now something peculiar is happening in Port Arbello. The children are disappearing, one by one. An evil history is repeating itself. And one strange, terrified child has ended her silence with a scream that began 100 years ago.

©1977 John Saul (P)2020 Tantor

Fantastic Listening

I read this book over 30 years ago. I totally loved it then and I was amazed to find it on audio.
Wonderfully narrated, I enjoyed it just as much, if not more this time round!

Captivating

Captivating however the ending I did not like it was rushed and I would have liked a different ending to tie up the beginning and middle

Narration is amazing and this is a gripping story

Paul Woodson did a fantastic job with his narration! I loved it! The voice that he used for each character was right on point. The story was also engaging, and creepy. I would definitely recommend.

ugh that ending

book started slow, then got better, but the ending was a huge let down, it was like it ending in the middle of a chapter

Sexual situations

I ordered this book because I had read the reviews that it was clean and it is not. I just want one really good suspense thriller book without language and/or sexual scenes!
