Review: Dead Silence by Kimberly Derting

Dead Silence
Body Finder #4
Paperback, 389 pages
Published by HarperCollins
Release Date: April 15th 2014

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.

Reese's Review: 
It’s finally the end of an amazing series. Dead Silence was a fantastic ending and I couldn’t have been happier with how everything worked out. We learned so much while reading this series, like how scary people can be, and to never read terrifying books in the dark. I will miss this series a lot, so it’s a good thing I have copies of all these beauties.

Violet was kidnapped and almost killed trying to get away from The Girlfriend Collector and doesn’t know how to be the girl she was before. She’s spent the summer recovering and doesn’t want to go back to work at The Center or tell her friends what happened to her. She doesn’t want to find any more bodies, but when a body calls, Violet can’t do anything but answer. Now she’s being forced to go back to work even though all she can hear in the echo of the man she killed, the one who kidnapped her. Finding the person who killed an entire family isn’t going to be easy, but now Violet doesn’t have a choice, her family, her friends, and her own life are once again at stake.

Dead Silence was fantastic. I think it really shows the struggle for people who are in a bad situation trying to find a new normal for themselves. Violet definitely has a lot issues throughout the book with trying to be the “old Violet” and finding a happy medium. She has a lot of problems with hearing the echo around her all the time, but Jay does something so sweet it’s great. Violet has grown a lot throughout these books and it’s great to see how strong she is has grown.

There are some Rafe moments where he’s awesome, but I think the ending is perfect and he’ll end up with someone who makes him laugh and challenges him more than Violet.

There is a lot of mystery surrounding The Center and the team in this story. We find out all about the team and how is what formed and echo’s and about Violet’s grandmother. It’s definitely going to make you go “Oh wowza!” I was blown away by the stuff we uncovered. So sad there won’t be another book but honestly Violet has suffered enough.

Fantastic end to a fantastic series Kimberly Derting you are amazing.
