Dead Silence (Body Finder, #4) – Kimberly Derting

Author: Kimberly Derting

Rating: 4/5

Synopsis

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.

READ AT YOUR OWN RISK. IN THE IMMORTAL WORDS OF RIVER SONG, “SPOILERS!”

I received this arc via EpicReads. I have not been paid for this review and whatnot.

It’s senior year for Violet, but the last thing she cares about is school. Haunted by her own imprint, it’s up to Violet to clear the name of a classmate when he’s accused of slaughtering a family.

And not just any murder, one of the victims has no echo, despite being so gruesomely killed. After discovering some new revelations about how this dead child has no echo, Violet gets rid of her imprint thanks to the gorgeous Rafe. But even with the haunting melody gone, Violet tries hard to get back to normal. After hearing it for so long, it’s molded into her and she has to get used to not having a reminder that she has killed.

Not only is Vi trying to track down a killer, she discovers that her Grandma Louise was a part of the Center once upon a time, and that everyone there now is linked to the previous group.

Our new killer (or should I say, KILLERS) is pretty creepy, reminding me somewhat of Charles Manson and his cult.  The scary part is that it could – and has – actually happened before.  However, he’s not as creepy as previous killers (namely the duo from The Body Finder and Caine from The Last Echo). Book two was completely lacking, in my opinion.

I think this is supposed to be the final in the series, but after the end, I feel like there’s room to have more installments.

  1. I actually have the first book on my shelf… I’ve been wanting to read it for quite a time now, but haven’t really gotten around to doing it!
