Dead Silence by S.A. Barnes

Is it any surprise that I would reach for a thrilling space story? I think not!

Thank you Tor Nightfire for my gifted copy in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: Claire Kovalik is days away from being unemployed—made obsolete—when her beacon repair crew picks up a strange distress signal. With nothing to lose and no desire to return to Earth, Claire and her team decide to investigate. What they find at the other end of the signal is a shock: the Aurora, a famous luxury space-liner that vanished on its maiden tour of the solar system more than twenty years ago. A salvage claim like this could set Claire and her crew up for life. But a quick trip through the Aurora reveals something isn’t right. Whispers in the dark. Flickers of movement. Words scrawled in blood. Claire must fight to hold onto her sanity and find out what really happened on the Aurora, before she and her crew meet the same ghastly fate.

What a thrill of a ride! I absolutely devoured this book. This is a locked room mystery novel that gave me Alfred Hitchcock and Twilight Zone vibes. It’s everything I want in a novel such as this. It had me biting my nails until the very last page. If anyone has other books like this to recommend, send them my way because this was such a fun read for me!

5/5 Stars
