Matthew Marin’s new book, “Silent Screams,” hit the #1 position on three Best Seller lists, two in the Kindle Store and one for all Amazon Books (including Kindle) on December 17, 2020. The day before, “Silent Screams” claimed Best Seller list status in two other, highly competitive categories among all Amazon books -- Psychological Pathologies and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, plus Top-25 Best Seller ranking in Mental Health (Kindle Store).
With lucid and compelling real-life stories, "Silent Screams" takes the reader through a personal journey of the harsh reality of military, para-military, and law enforcement service personnel and how they cope. The book exposes the traumatic injury inflicted as they daily face innumerable horrific scenes, life-threatening risks, and other extreme events and stresses. It is no wonder there is a suicide pandemic among veterans and first responders, a tide this book seeks to help stem.
