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.


I like reading books set in places I know and there is nowhere I know better than Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs.  Philly girl born and raised this book led me through the streets I grew up on, the cemetery where I taught my daughter to drive and the Cynwyd Heritage trail that I have frequently walked. 

Kaitlyn is a late night radio DJ, somewhat of a local celebrity, and she keeps receiving notes that are creeping her out.  Long ago her high school boyfriend drowned, to escape the nightmare she changed her name and moved around, now she is back close to where it happened and someone seems to know who she is and what happened that night.  

Twisty and windy, I figured this mystery out pretty quickly but rabbit hole of madness the stalker goes down is creepy twisted and devastating.  I don't think this is the best written book I've read but it definitely had the creep factor down.  The narration on this book was well done and engaging.  Definitely kept my interest.
