OMG!!! Viveca you got me! Totally lured me in at the end of To Murder Matt and I was blown away with how wrong I was!!! Within the first 2 chapters my jaw was on the floor and my head was a mess! Everything I thought was totally blown apart! Superb beyond belief!
I don’t want to give anything away in this review so will try to explain what makes this book so gut-churningly fantastic and hopefully still makes some sense!
This book picks up after the court hearing and you find out how Veronique, Nico, Ellen and Dean are trying to move on with their lives but still have the looming feeling of something isn’t quite right! Veronique and Nico are getting married and of course Ellen is pregnant but unsure who the father is, Dean the man she loves or Matt, her ex husband who she hates; and rightly so since he has tried been anything but nice to her! After Matt’s death the four were acquitted of his murder and free to carry on their lives, however there are a couple of people who think they should have paid the price and sentenced for Matt’s murder.
This book is fast paced and crammed full of detail and the storyline is one that gets better and better as the book goes on. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse – in a good twisted book kind of way – it did! The surprises were really shocking and left me opened mouthed with anticipation for what would happen! I NEEDED to finish this book asap and wanted to find out how it would end!
The strange thing was as evil characters gained some lucidity and you read how they realised they may be screwed up, I actually felt for them and the crap hand they were dealt with in their lives. BUT not for long before their evil took over and I could kick myself for trying to empathise with them!
This book is left on a cliff hanger and as much as I want to know what happens, how it ends, I also don’t want it to! I have grown fond of each character and their personal plight with survival – even the detective assigned to them!
I couldn’t wait to read this instalment in the Matt saga, after the shock of reading the others in the series at how sadistic this man is I was dying (no pun intended) to see how this book would pan out.
I loved how the whole plot line of Matt not being dead was carried out – so simple after the initial realisation that he wasn’t actually dead. I promise a no spoiler review!
Matt is back and wants revenge, and boy does he get it! whether you loved or hated Matt in the previous books you are going hate him even more in this one that is a given. Marie is also back with her own agenda and that just adds to the whole effect.
I am truly loving Viveca and I serisouly want to read what happens next like yesterday!
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!!!!!
Viveca Benoir has done it again with another OMG!
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*****

Just when you thought you were rid of him, Matt found a way to rise from the dead. Unfortunately his near death experience did little to change Matt’s attitude toward his friends and family. The majority of the plot is driven by his revenge agains those he feels have done him wrong. There are several unexpected plot twists that will leave the reader wondering just what hit them. The action is fast paced and the characters well developed. Once again Ms. Benoir has delved deeply into Matt’s twisted mind to share his story and she is not done yet.

The man everyone loves to hate is back. Viveca Benoir plays with our minds again. Taking us on an emotional journey into her thoughts. Dark, twisted, full of surprises, she surpasses herself, and shocks us from chapter to chapter. Every new page bringing more of Matt, and the other characters, we already know and trust.

The 4 survivors from To Murder Matt are back getting on with their daily lives now thinking they are free of Matt….but each have feelings of a ghost reappearing. This book is nowhere near as dark as To Murder Matt and you see Matt softening and actually showing remorse. Will it all go wrong for Matt, will he get his just desserts? You will have to find out!
This book is long but again, the writing is fabulous. I must admit the first book was quite shocking with the horrifying acts it held within, but this book was less shocking and I really enjoyed it.
