Claire Kovalik is days away from being unemployed - made obsolete - when her beacon repair crew picks up a strange distress signal. The frame story explicitly established that the lead would survive the initial encounter and heavily hinted that her employers were seeking to establish contact with the lost luxury ship, despite her objections. The communications the crew of the Aurora tried to send at the end are broken up and hint at madness.

Kade was also intrigued by the idea of setting the novel in two different points in time, both before and after the character Claire was rescued, as she liked the idea that authorities would see her as an unreliable narrator due to the existence of conflicting evidence. Dead Silence opens with the sole survivor of the disastrous discovery of a long-lost luxury cruise spaceship telling her story to skeptical bosses demanding to know what really happened to her lost team members. Even though Claire is both a strong and enduring female lead, when she is presented with Ripley’s dilemma, she is terrified but accepts she has to face her demons, even if she is unsure what or who they are. Gabino Iglesias reviewed the novel for Locus, praising it for its atmosphere, setting, and for "simultaneously exploring the role that past trauma and PTSD can play when someone who suffers from them is exposed to fresh trauma. With increasing unease, Claire and her crewmates also discover that most of the cruise liner’s passengers appear to have died under mysterious circumstances.If one part of a book has a different feel than the other there’s a good chance some of the folks reading won’t appreciate the shift.

A. Barnes being chatted about on Twitter and Goodreads, I couldn’t help but have my interest piqued.
