The Dead Can’t Speak by MA Comley – review.


Some people have secrets…

And there are those who have deadly secrets…

The murder of an unidentified woman in a hotel room proves to be a perplexing case for DI Sara Ramsey.

Sifting through the victim’s past reveals numerous inconsistencies and shocking secrets she had taken to her grave.

Why had the killer silenced her?

Sara and her team need to unravel the mystery, but in doing so, do they put yet more lives in danger as well as their own?

In order to find happiness in her personal life, Sara is forced to deal with demons from her past.

Ideal thriller for fans of Angie Marsons, Robert Bryndza, and Leslie Wolfe.

Killer Blow

My thoughts:

This is the third book in the series and I must say, it keeps getting more addictive. This is a dark read, one in which a serial killer is targeting beautiful young women and toying with the police along the way.

I love this cat and mouse style novel, it had me on tenterhooks all the way through. On top of all that, DI Sara Ramsey had major problems of her own to deal with. The author really explored her pain and anguish with realism and sensitivity.

One thing I’m really enjoying about this series is the developing (work) partnership between Sara and Carla, it’s a delight to read. The chapters written from the murderer’s perspective were insightful and gripping.

All in all, The Dead Can’t Speak is a fantastic police procedural. Definitely a speedy read and a satisfying one too. Fab book!
