Silent Scream Review by Author Barbara Watkins

Review ‘Silent Scream’

 Silent Scream
I literally read this book from start to finish without taking a break. It’s apparent that the author, Yvonne Mason, did an extensive amount of research to create this literary masterpiece. In this day and age our crime investigators have such resources as ‘DNA’ ‘Behavioral Science’ and ‘Profiling’ to help assist in their investigations… not so in 1973.
 
Through this brilliant literary piece the author takes the reader back in time, to 1973, and gives the reader an ‘in depth’ look inside the mind of a prolific serial killer known as ‘Gerard John Schaefer.’ The reader must be warned, much of the material is disturbing and graphic in nature. However, I’m a firm believer that the repetition of violence causes we as a society to become desensitized, callous towards victims of such tragedies.
 
In writing ‘Silent Scream’ the author introduces the innocent victims one by one, revealing each of their personalities, giving them a voice to be heard.
Through transcripts and letters the author takes you into the courtroom so you can experience the trial of this notorious killer, giving great detail to specifics that at last lead up to his conviction. For me, reading ‘Silent Scream’ was an eye opening experience. It reminded me how vulnerable we truly are, especially our young children.
 
The suffering, humiliation, and torture that these innocent victims endured before their tragic death is incomprehensible. Yvonne Mason brings their story to light, and through her words she speaks for those lives that have been silenced…
 
“Silent Scream” is an impeccable work of literature, expressed with sensitivity, written by one talented writer, ‘Yvonne Mason.
