Publisher's Summary

In murder…

The last sounds Dean Wilson hears are a clock striking twelve and a killer’s taunting words. And his death is just the first. One by one, victims are stalked and shot at close range. Only the killer knows their sins, and who will be the next to die at midnight?

And in life…

In the ten years since her Hollywood career imploded, Lorie Hammonds has built a good life in her Alabama hometown. When the first death threat arrives, she assumes it’s a joke. Then she gets a second. Sheriff Mike Birkett, her high school sweetheart, has avoided Lorie since she returned to Dunmore, but when investigators uncover her connection to a string of recent murders, he’s drawn into a case that’s terrifyingly personal.

Timing is everything.

With every murder, the killer edges closer. Soon Lorie’s will be the last name left on his list. Her only hope is to unearth a deadly secret—before the clock runs out for good.

What the Critics Say

“The popular and dependable Barton has again created an intricately plotted, thoroughly engrossing serial killer tale that satisfactorily resolves the current dilemmas but leaves a stunning cliff-hanger.” (Library Journal)

    "a plodding & predictable romantic thriller"

    It wasn't a bad book, but it wasn't particularly good either. It seemed that the author made up her mind how many victims there would be in novel and then had to think of a variety of ways and circumstances to kill them off; some succeeded better than others but basically it felt like there were too many and it was drawn out. I found my attention wandering which is always a bad sign for me to view a book successful. I had to rewind on numerous occasions and then asked myself whether it mattered if I did and usually it didn't. By the time I got to the end and the 'perp' was unveiled I had forgotten who he was anyway. I can't honestly recommend it, but I will read the second one because the reviews say it's better. I hope you do better with this book than me, if you decide to buy it.

    "Absolutely horrible"
    What would have made Dead by Midnight better?

    From the narration to the sophomoric dialogue and the underlying prejudices…there is a decent story in there somewhere, but I couldn’t get through it. Had to stop it by a third of the way through.

    "Sins of the past"

    In a small town where everyone knows your business, a woman is trying to forget her past where an acting job ended in an adult movie. Her old flame is the sheriff and although they both still have the hots for each other, he can't forget how she left him to pursue her career.


    The woman is soon in danger as all the actors in her fabled movie are bumped off one-by-one. Maybe this will bring her and the sheriff closer?
