Publisher's Summary

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.

Praise for Dead Air:

"Want to go behind-the-scenes in the fascinating world of radio? Dead Air is steeped in authenticity, thanks to Bradley's impressive career in the field. Add in flawed, complicated characters, an eerie setting, and a jaw-dropping finale, and you have an unputdownable thriller. Gripping, a brilliantly crafted novel!" (K.J. Howe, international best-selling author of Skyjack)

"In his newest page-turner Dead Air, Michael Bradley will cast you to the shallows, yank you to the murkiest depths of the human psyche, and won't let you up for a single breath until the final page." (Sandra Brannan, author of the Liv Bergen mystery series)

"In Dead Air, author Michael Bradly puts his unique spin on the stalker-victim story, thanks to a rich cast of characters, a serial killer subplot, and the author's inside knowledge of the radio DJ world. Everyone's a suspect in this murderous game of musical chairs, and Bradley deftly keeps you guessing until the final note sounds. Tune in - Dead Air rocks." (J.L. Delozier, author of Con Me Once and the Persephone Smith thriller series)

"Dead Air is an excellent read; well-written, absorbing, and filled with shocking twists. Just when you think you know where this story is going, all hell breaks loose, and Bradley expertly veers the reader onto a new and exciting path. With surprises around every corner, this book will keep you up all night until you reach its stunning conclusion. Don't miss this one!" (Lisa Regan, USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling crime fiction author)

“Just when you think you get a handle on what’s going on, another layer of the story is peeled away, and you realize you have no idea.” (A. S. Thornton, author of Daughter of the Salt King)

“In Michael Bradley’s captivating thriller Dead Air, a radio DJ’s spotty past catches up to exciting mystery whose flawed leads struggle to make the right decisions.” (Foreword Reviews)

Evocative performance of an immersive story

Dead Air is an engrossing story so well performed that from the first scene I was hooked. Narrator Rachel Fulginiti is a pro who brings Bradley’s story to life.

Dumbest ending ever!

All through the book you're teased by some horrific happening at "the shallows". When this horrific event is uncovered, it's like being promised a gourmet meal only to wind up with a corn dog. I like corn dogs but not when I have been teased with filet mignon. Plus anyone who can't figure out the villain halfway through the book should stick to Archie comics.
