Dead Men Don’t Kill
by Viveca Benoir (Goodreads Author)

Andrea Florko review Jun 07, 15
5 of 5 stars

Wow, I do not even know where to start or how to write this review. Viveca Benoir did it again. I would love to dissect her brain, LOL, because I don’t know how her mind comes up with these intricate stories where people are all interwoven somehow. Her stories have so many twists, turns, and bumps they literally leave your head spinning and your heart wondering how or why it could feel anything for these sinister and hateful characters!! Oh did I mention my jaw being open plenty of times too!! If you do not take the time to read Viveca’s foreward in her books, go back and do so. Her thoughts are absolutely fascinating. That mind of hers is definitely twisted.

Dead Men Don’t Kill is the continuation of Matt’s story. Matt has come back from the dead, but was he really dead to begin with? Revenge! This book is about Matt’s revenge on those he feel have wronged him. Ellen, Vero, Nico and Dean .. do any survive? Are there any others that are caught in the path of revenge? I guess you are going to have to read this to find out! Someone, close to Matt in more ways than not, is a major character in this book. Who is it? I loved it!!! What’s their connection? Will history repeat its self?

Five brilliant stars! An absolutely dark read not for the faint of heart!!!!!

5 Stars (Advance Review) for ‘Dead Men Don’t Kill’

Angel Dust 5 star review of Dead Men Don’t Kill on Goodreads.

Viveca Benoir has done it again with another OMG!
I was given an Arc for an honest review, so here it is.

We all thought Matt was dead, gone, buried and the Evil never to return, how WRONG we were. Matt’s back with a vengeance to deliver REVENGE!
For Veronique, Ellen, Dean, and Nico, life is about to take a turn for the very worst, but with only seeing a ghost from their past what can they do ?? Who will survive ??.
It’s so full of twists and turns, and OMG moments that you will once again be drawn into stalking, plotting, and the emotional roller coaster we know as Matt.
I don’t like spoilers, so I won’t give to much away…. But Marie is back with a plan of her own. She is one WILD child!
What I would give to spend one day in the mind of Viveca Benoir….
This book won’t disappoint! If you loved or hated Matt before, this book is a must , as Matt and the evil returns …
I Love these books, and I can’t wait for more !! *****5 STARS*****

The book will be released 5th July 2015


5 stars again for Matt – the Beginning

Emma‘s review

Apr 04, 15
Matt the Beginning is the prequel to To Murder Matt by Viveca Benoir. This book takes you through Matt’s troubled start from birth and asks the question does life make you who you are or are those dark urges always inside you from birth?

Matt faces unimaginable challenges throughout his early life and is often let down by those in the position to protect and care for him, this book did make me empathise with Matt at some points, I have read To Murder Matt and so know what he goes onto become and be so this book helped me get inside his mind to see how he became the man in the next book and how he met some of the characters who are also in the next book, but he evolves through this book from making bad choices to delighting in the torment and power he can cause for his own gain… A true Devil in disguise that walks the earth.

Yes Matt has a heart in this book, it’s not fully cold and black yet, he has moments where he cares, feels and thinks of others but then someone lets him down or events don’t work out as planned: this highly intelligent and ambitious young man won’t be let down and revels in his revenge, retaliation and retribution upon those who wrong him: via sex, manipulation or plain old black mail (some methods will leave you feeling uncomfortable so be aware) …He has so many points where you hope that maybe this is the one person who can help, show or save Matt from his chosen path but no, the stage is now set for Matt and this ending leads seamlessly into To Murder Matt.

A twisted tale of epic proportions that makes you question nature versus nurture.

“It was amazing.” 5 * Review for Matt- the Beginning

Published on Goodreads:

VBV rated it 5 of 5 starsVenia 1 MTB

Shelves: dark-twisted, murder-mystery, suspense-romance, brilliant-books

Main characters are Matt, Natalie, Marie, Julia, Venia, and a brief glimpse of Ellen

This book takes you through Matt’s journey from his first breaths. How he goes through life being shaped by people and events around him. He can go one way or another. The fact that there is a book called “To Murder Matt” already tells us he can’t turn out well. It’s already hinting at a car crash in slow motion. And we get to see him rise and fall.

One after another the women come into his life. They change him bit by bit. He falls into sex, into love and as he is spurned by one, he plans his revenge on all women. No surprise there. Matt isn’t an angel. For the reader there are the what might have beens. The ‘what ifs’. What if that hadn’t happened? How would a nice Matt be?

Matt shows he has a heart in this book and I, for one, felt hope. After all, isn’t that what he ultimately wants and is searching for? Love? What could the love of a good woman do for Matt?

Matt is damaged goods. He starts off broken and by the end he’s the nasty Matt we know and love. Totally beyond redemption.

A devil amongst men? He’s a bloody sexy one at that.

Matt – the beginning Review


Quote “After reading the blurb and the first chapter.. I was getting ready to sympathize for Matt.. He had been through a lot and he wasn’t very old. I felt bad for him up until he moved in with Natalia.. then everything went crazy!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00034]

Matt: The Beginning is definitely a page turner because I wanted to know what happens!”

Matt is a devil amongst men.

Here we read his story. We join him on his journey through life from his very first breath and we find out why he becomes a devil amongst men.

Whatever you think you know about Matt, throw it out of the window, it’s wrong. You need to read his story.

A dark, twisting novel of grand passions, heart breaking love, betrayal, death, deceit and lies.

Important. Suitable for aged 18+ Adults only. Contains sexually explicit scenes.
