"... an absolutely fantastic read. I loved kim and how she could talk to Griff. I was gripped. Very cleverly written with a twist."
"Deadspeak by Ruth Bainbridge is amazing, y'all -- unlike anything I've ever read. I don't usually read paranormal books, but I am SO glad I made an exception this time. Deadspeak has two main characters, and the action is told from their alternating points of view. Kimberly Trent is a first-year detective for the Harbinger, Ohio PD. Almost20years ago, her big sister, age 13, was abducted and murdered. Kim has been tormented by this horrific event ever since, which led to her becoming a cop.
Griffin Lindon states in the book's opening sentence: "I'm not always right, but then, I'm only thirteen." She has just completed eighth grade, where she was voted Most Popular in a landslide. Griff has charisma, and IT -- that something that makes everyone want to be around her. Well, almost everyone -- because someone murders her in the first chapter. Griff, who's now a ghost, is at the crime scene when Kim arrives with her partner to investigate Griff's murder. While there, Griff realizes that Kim can hear her speak. After a bit, they develop a rather odd partnership. Griff doesn't remember any details of her attack at first, but eventually remembers enough to help solve her own murder.
Griffenjoys helping Kim so much that she has decided to stick around awhile(forthem to solve more murders, in future books in the series). I loved Deadspeak, and can't wait to read Deadspeak 2. The Deadspeak Mysteries is a series I will definitely continue with.
I recommend Deadspeak to anyone looking for a stupendous paranormal, suspenseful, mystery/ thriller. Deadspeak is a winner, and I can't say enough good things about it. I loved Deadspeak by Ruth Bainbridge, and award it our highest rating of Five Kitties!"
