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.
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.
More mayhem? Listen to another title in the Dead By Trilogy.

“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the protagonists begin to learn of the assault on Powell and never lets go as the climax diabolically leads to the next unpublished tale.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)
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
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.
I love her voice, but she could only do her best based on the author/editor work.
No it was not. Our hero Dereck gets lost with the too many characters introduced in this story
not a good spend on this trilogy
The author did a much better job of building the tension and suspense earlier in this book than the first in the series which dragged in parts in my opinion. I still liked the first book overall even with its faults and the narrator took a bit of time to get used to but her voice finally grew on me and I came to like it in the end. This second book though moves more quickly and gets more involved in answering the lingering questions from the first. Though there are more questions left to ponder for book 3 in the series this book did a good job of completing an important part of the story while still leaving you hanging for the next part. I have already purchased the third book and am preparing to listen to it right away. Definitely this book was worth the credit spent on it but to understand the whole story you really should start at the beginning with book 1 "Dead by Midnight".
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.
"Narration will drive you crazy"
The tone this narrator uses is so off putting I have little idea of plot and had to give up listening
It may be a better read or with a different narrator
I tried at least four times at different times in the hope I would accept the narration but nope
This seemed like a bit of a filler until you get to the final instalment of this trilogy; however, it was still good.
The references to the agency and its beginnings from the first book come into play here with the FBI profiler and the female agent tiptoing round a sexual attraction whilst trying to find a murderer. Someone is targeting agency members and their family, what does an already jailed murderer have to do with it?
