Dead Air - Michael Bradley (Audiobook)
Rating 4 Stars
Three can keep a secret, but only if two are dead.
No one knows that better than Kaitlyn Ashe, who has been running from a childhood secret her whole life. Until now. Crowned the top-rated radio DJ in Philadelphia, she is finally ready to settle down with her fiancé and new friends who know nothing about her past.
When a sudden flood of anonymous letters threatens her seemingly charmed life, she realizes that someone out there knows. But who? As the threatening letters escalate, Kaitlyn’s life spirals toward a reunion in the one place she’d hoped to never visit again: the Shallows. Isn’t her secret buried with the dead?
From the Philadelphia skyline to the rural suburbs of New Jersey, Dead Air weaves a suspenseful tale of past misdeeds and present malice as Kaitlyn plays a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with a mysterious killer who will stop at nothing to get revenge.
An interesting murder mystery told from both points of view of the pursued and the pursuer. A nice mix of characters and suspects that keep the reader guessing for the first half of the book and then ramps up the action and tension for the remainder which rises to a terrifying climax at the Shallows
I found the added narration from the perpetrator gave the book an interesting twist and this provided extra clues for those of us that love to work out who the killer is before the grand reveal.
Although this is set in the world of radio broadcasting there is very little of the plot that is involved with the radio station or the process of broadcasting itself - rather it is the characters outside of the station that take centre stage.
I feel that the added sub-plot of the GBT Killer was superflous to the main story and could've been removed without any detriment to the main story.
Audio narration was good and easy to listen to so overall i'm happy to give this a 4 star rating
