Dead Silent (Poppy Sinclair #2) by Sharon Jones

Publication: February 6, 2014

Publisher: Orchard Books / Hachette

A snow angel etched in blood. An elite society. A secret dying to get out.

The second Poppy Sinclair Thriller.

When Poppy Sinclair and her boyfriend visit snowy Cambridge, she doesn't expect to discover the body of a student - arms outstretched in the act of smearing bloody angel wings on the chapel's floor.

Suddenly, Poppy is faced with the possibility that the one closest to her heart might be the one committing the most malicious of crimes.

Dodging porters and police, dreading what she might find, Poppy follows the clues left by a murderer bent on revenge...

Long-hidden secrets are chillingly revealed, an avenging angel seeks forgiveness and red-hot vengeance must be quelled in the amazing new Poppy Sinclair thriller.

Dead Silent was a fun Teen/YA thriller.  Even though this is the second book in the Poppy Sinclair series, it was the first book that I have read in this series. It can be read as a solo book without having read the first one. A story involving murder, mystery, and a secret society? What’s not to like.

When Poppy Montgomery and her boyfriend Michael decide to visit Cambridge for Michaels interview, they did not plan on being involved in a murder investigation. But after Poppy stumbles upon a bloody murder scene and body, it’s what she gets.

I liked Poppy’s inquisitive personality. She wants to discover the truth and figure out who is behind it all, but she doesn’t get herself caught in anything too crazy thankfully. Though at times she made me feel frustrated. Especially when she decided to make some questionable choices.

You might like Dead Silent if you’re into Nancy Drew type mysteries and don’t mind a few gruesome murders occurring. The writing and the flow of the story were done well. And there was an air of mystery/suspense that was constantly maintained throughout the book.

RATING: 3½ out of 5.

**I received this book on behalf of the publisher in exchange for nothing but my honest opinion. Thank you.**
