Review: Dead Silence by Kim Derting

Violet thought she’d made peace with her unique ability to sense the echoes of the dead and the imprints that cling to their killers…that is until she acquired an imprint of her own. Forced to carry a reminder of the horrible events of her kidnapping, Violet is more determined than ever to lead a normal life. However, the people who run the special investigative team Violet works for have no intention of letting her go.

When someone close to Violet becomes a suspect in a horrific murder, she finds herself pulled into a deadly hunt for a madman with an army of devoted followers. Violet has survived dangerous situations before, but she quickly discovers that protecting those closest to her is far more difficult than protecting herself.

My Thoughts
Just a quick review for the last book in the body finder series.

This final instalment is a nice read and a good book to round off the series. I won't say too much but if you have enjoyed the series so far you are bound to like this. For me it was far darker than previous books and it does feel like the series as a whole has grown up as it has gone on. I liked how you finally start to get some answers in this instalment about Violet and her abilities mostly via the journal entries Violet reads from her grandmother who had the same gift. You do very much get the idea by the end of the book that Violet is finally coming to accept her abilities and what she can do with them rather than seeing them solely as a burden.

A fab series and definitely worth a look as it has a whole host of fab characters and continues to be an engaging and interesting story throughout every book.
