Overview

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 Purdue 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. . .

    Leaves you wanting more!!!!

    Oh my gosh I loved this book. I have read everything that Beverly Barton has ever wrote and loved them all and not just because we share a name. Her books draw you in and when you think you figured it all out or it's over, she throws something else at you. I can hardly wait for the next book in the Dead by series. The next one, Dead by Nightfall, comes out in Dec and it cannot get here fast enough. She is amazing and this book is a must read in a long line of must reads!!

    Disappointed!!

    I love this author... but this was not her best work..The Powell Agency didn't seem very competent ..they were all running around in circles not capable of solving anything..Hopefully ,the next sequel will be better!

    A great romantic suspense

    Powell Private Security and Investment Agency operative Maleah Purdue is a confident and dedicated employee. However, someone using a knife begins surgically killing people connected to Powell; four are dead already by this late night demon. The M.O. matches that of serial killer Jerome Browning, who is already locked behind bars at Georgia State Prison.

    Maleah and Powell Security consultant former FBI profiler Derek Lawrence team up to try to stop a psychopath from committing more homicides of the firm's employees and family. They visit the incarcerated serial killer being aped to learn what they can. Meanwhile the predator hones in on Maleah while Derek is perhaps the only hope of finding the motive and keeping her and others safe.

    The second "Dead" thriller (see Dead by Midnight) is a great romantic suspense that grips the audience from the moment the protagonists begin to learn of the assault on Powell and never let's go as the climax diabolically leads to the next unpublished tale. The lead pair is a terrific coupling of two skilled specialists who fall in love, but know ending the villain's killings come before their needs. However, what makes Dead By Morning super is the serial killer, who will be considered one of the vilest of the year.

    This book was a great addition to the Griffin Powell series. I really liked the main characters, Maleah and Derek, and as always enjoyed seeing other familiar characters from the series. It was great to see Maleah and Derek go from an adversarial relationship to one of a much different sort. I liked watching their feelings for one another develop. The storyline kept me on the edge of my seat, and I can't wait to see what happens next! I was surprised by the cliffhanger ending, and some of the developments at the end of the book. As usual with the author, I found the book compelling and couldn't put it down.

    "fast Pased"

    I bought this book and then found out that Beverly Barton 'died 4/21/11 due to heart failure. It was bittersweet to read knowing that after this year, she won't be writing any more books. unless there is a Phantom writer(s)

    She Does It Again

    Beverly Barton has surpassed the mark. I look forward to her books; they are engaging and if you are not careful once you start you can't put it down. I looked forward to turning the page. The story line was so good I shared it with a close friend. You will not be disappointed.

    Excellent!

    Ms. Barton is the best, even though she leaves you hanging at the end. Can't wait for the new book in December 2011!

    Start with book one!

    I need to clarify the 3 star rating for this one, I have not read the 11 books prior in this series and I think that may have been essential. There are alot of references that I think the reader already knows if he/she has been following the series. This book was lengthy, it had a long start up and it was hard for me to get "invovled" with the characters. I found myself not too fond of the main investigative team and the "original" bad guy reminded me of Hannibal Lector, just creepy! It has some twists and turns, but I would recommend reading from the beginning of this series.
