Sam wakes up on a train. He doesn’t know who he is or where he’s going. An interesting choice of assistant for a murder investigation.
Sam Roden doesn’t know who he is, where he’s come from or where he’s going. His landlady Elizabeth says that everyone is like that; it’s just that most people don’t realise it. Sam has no memory, only a strange and illogical vision of a room that isn’t there and an eccentric friend who insists that Sam is the perfect assistant in his investigation of a murder.
The Scream is a detective novel with a difference. The difference being that the person helping to investigate the crime is asking the most unexpected questions; questions that are relevant to anyone who is ever going to die.
