Overview

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 note. 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. . .

    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.

    "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.
