While talking to his friend on the phone, Mark Stone is startled by a cacophony of otherworldly screams. Seconds later, a tragic accident claims his friend’s life. When this happens several more times—screams followed by an untimely death—he is compelled to act.
Battling his failure as a husband and struggling with his own damaged faith, Mark embarks on a mission to find the meaning behind the screams and hopefully stop death from calling on its next victim. When his estranged wife is kidnapped and he again hears the screams as she calls from her cell phone, his search becomes much more personal and much more urgent.
Named “Best Christian Thriller of 2009” by Deen Peterson (A Peek at My Bookshelf).
Mike Dellosso is a storyteller extraordinaire. It’s a rare writer who has the chops—or the courage—to lead readers into hell so he can show them heaven. In Scream, Dellosso does exactly that. Scream is an expertly crafted thriller that combines a tight, twisting plot with intriguing characters, primarily an imperfect but genuinely likeable protagonist and one of wickedest villains this side of a nightmare. Toss Dellosso’s brilliant wordsmithing into the mix, and bam!—you got yourself a story that’ll keep you reading well into the night . . . and thinking about it long afterward.

Mike Dellosso, an astonishing new voice in supernatural thrillers, cements his right to be grouped with the likes of King and Peretti, with his relentless new thriller, Scream. Delosso’s sophomore effort is packed with wonderfully flawed characters, a very creative plot, and a strong spiritual message.

Mike’s writing is filled with suspense. Once you’ve started his book, it’s hard to put it down. More importantly, there is a truth that comes through loudly and clearly. Heaven and hell are real. In light of the brevity of life, the time to tell people about Christ is not tomorrow; it’s today. Scream reminds each believer of the need to reach out – NOW!
