Publisher's Summary

The darkest sins…
He begins his work just before dawn, wielding a knife with the precision of a surgeon. Cunning and meticulous, he’s always in control. Mercy is not an option.
Will always…
Maleah Perdue is tough, outspoken, and completely dedicated to her work at the Powell Security Agency. But her fearless exterior shatters when a madman begins killing her colleagues one by one, mimicking a notorious serial killer already behind bars. Working alongside top profiler Derek Lawrence, Maleah will do anything to find the murderer, even if it means playing a psychopath’s twisted mind games.
Come to light.
No one connected to the agency is safe. No one is beyond suspicion. For as Maleah and Derek piece together the clues, they uncover a chilling legacy of lies and brutal vengeance—and a killer who has been hiding in plain sight all along.


What the Critics Say

“The second ‘Dead’ thriller is a great romantic suspense that grips the audience from the moment the protagonists begin to learn of the assault on Powell and never lets go as the climax diabolically leads to the next unpublished tale. The lead pair is a terrific coupling…However, what makes Dead by Morning super is the serial killer, who will be considered one of the vilest of the year.” (Mystery Gazette)

Narrator Rocked It Out!

2nd book in series & having given over to the author's world for the book not to be annoying I am enjoying the series. Great detailed descriptions. There are many characters in the series & the narrator knocks each one out the box!
I commend the author for making the character's diverse. From the black best friend to one of the main characters being wheel chaired bound & holding her own. Strong female characters.
I further commend the author for taking on the topic of human trafficking. While the topic is covered it is not in your face.
The book is good b/c it has strong character development, diverse characters, and great descriptions.

Not as Advertised

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I could not put my finger as to why this was not a good use of 15 hrs of listening. I purchased as I liked Don't cry, and I liked Karen white as a reader. I purchased all three but should have just purchase as I could listen. Very disappointed as the main heroine was supposed to be tough and strong. I did not like our heroine or Nick, they both came off weak. This is a turn off for me. When the sneak preview said Me lea was strong, I listened out of order as I am not a person who is compelled to listen in order. I can pick up a story without having to listen in order.

What do you think your next listen will be?

not sure

What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

I love her voice, but she could only do her best based on the author/editor work.

Was Dead by Morning worth the listening time?

No it was not. Our hero Dereck gets lost with the too many characters introduced in this story

Any additional comments?

not a good spend on this trilogy
