    Dale Mayer's work is always outstanding and Haunted by Death is

    Dale Mayer's work is always outstanding and Haunted by Death is no exception. As the tale is revealed, the elements of the past and present weave together to create a magnetic story that pulls the reader further and further into the story. Wonderful well developed characters help bring the story to life as we root for the shadow that has hung over these people to be cleared away and for the ultimate answer to be revealed.As always, there are a couple of twists the shake up the characters and maybe the reader.

    Nine young adults spent the weekend at the lake 17 years ago, but only 8 came home. For 17 years the shadow of suspicion has hung over the group and the experience reshaped their lives. Now one of the group has discovered a skeleton that may be the missing friend. This discovery once again changes the dynamics of life for many of the group.
     I read this book in the anthology, Killer Romances.

    The second book in the series is an intriguing thriller that keeps the reader reading until the very end.
    Seventeen years ago, a group of young friends’ lives were destroyed when one of them disappears on a camping trip.  Meg left everything behind including her lover and now concentrates more on her career than anything. Chad the one she left behind, is a detective and has spent the last seventeen years trying to solve the mystery.  When Meg returns she makes a gruesome discovery that sets things in motion that will turn their life upside down.
    The plot is set at a slow and steady pace that keeps the reader engaged with solving the mystery.  The suspense builds as more clues are uncovered that leaves them with more questions. This book is very intriguing and keeps the reader guessing until the very end with some surprising twist and turns.
    The author conveys the suspense in such a way that the reader is taken along with the compelling characters as they discover the horrible truth to what happened to their friend. The book is a romantic suspense but it concentrates more on the mystery than the romance, but what is there is well written and fits into the story at a believable pace.  Though this is part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone book.  I am looking forward to reading more in this series.
    I received this review from NetGalley in exchange for a hones review.

    Dale Mayer has done it again.  Haunted by Death is an excellent psychological thriller that you will not want to put down, even when you reach the final page.  Seventeen years ago Meg Pearce and Chad Ingram had it all; the love and a good outlook for the future but all that was lost with the disappearance of a friend while on a camping trip with a group of friends.  Flash forward seventeen years, looking for closure, Anthropologist Meg Pearce revisits the place that destroyed her life and makes a discovery that brings the past to the present day.  This discovery brings Detective Chad Ingram back into her life and gives them both a chance to bring closure to the past and hope for the future.   Although I had the “who done it” figured out, the story line kept me intrigued.   I must add that the characters pull you in and the story line flowed smoothly enough to complete the book in one sitting.
