It was a story of DS Macey which I enjoyed, as well as the other detective books by Michael Fowler. It was well written showing the personal side of life which was cleverly intermingled with her main case!
The only part I didn't like is as in all detective novels the main person doesn't get on with their boss.
Obviously the reader is able to make the link between the body and the two young girls long before the police because we have more information but it doesn't detract from the reading experience as the body is merely the start of an investigation into further murders and the illegal sex trade. It is an exciting read with plenty of action but some of the coincidences in the plot are a bit too hard to swallow and left me thinking yeah, right - I feel that if I mention exactly what I mean it would spoil other readers' enjoyment so you'll just have to take my word for it.
The author is a former policeman so the procedure is good and interesting although Scarlett tends to ignore it when it suits her. She is an interesting character. She is the stereotypical fictional detective in that she has a close friendship with alcohol, not anything close to an alcoholic but it is her go to destresser, and a troubled past in the murder of her parents and disappearance of her sister and yet she is refreshingly normal, she wants to do a good job and generally does until her priorities don't coincide with her orders and she goes off piste which leads to her being disciplined, she is a good team leader, she watches X Factor and Big Brother on TV and her distress at her bullying boss's antics is familiar to all of us who have been in a similar situation (Mr Fowler handles it extremely well). I would like to see some of the other characters fleshed out in future novels as they are not particularly well developed, but there is no need for them to be as this is a plot driven novel.
Scream, You Die is not a novel for the faint hearted as it is fairly brutal and the sex trade is never an easy subject. I think Mr Fowler deals with it well by concentrating on two abductees and their captors, to widen it further would have diluted the immediacy and horror of what goes on. I have no hesitation, minor quibbles aside, in recommending it as a good read.
