Publisher's Summary

The #1 Amazon Charts bestselling series continues as Morgan Dane and PI Lance Kruger fight for the innocence of a young murder suspect - if only they could find him.

When a retired sheriff’s deputy is shot to death in his home, his troubled teenage stepson, Evan, becomes the prime suspect. Even more incriminating, the boy disappeared from the scene of the crime.

Desperate to find her son, Evan’s mother begs PI Lance Kruger for help. She knows her son is innocent. Kruger and defense attorney Morgan Dane want to believe that too, but the evidence against the boy is damning. Just as the trail goes cold, another deputy vanishes. His shocking connection to Evan’s stepfather throws the investigation into chaos as Lance and Morgan fear the worst…that Evan is the killer’s new target.

With so many secrets to unravel, will Lance and Morgan find him before it’s too late?

Critic Reviews

“A tense, original thriller that perfectly blends the nail-biting suspense and shocks of Silence of the Lambs and Shutter Island.” (John Marrs, best-selling author of When You Disappeared)

The best yet!!

Well, what can I say? As usual Melinda has given us a book that keeps the pages turning and the reader on the edge of their seat. I’m sure I was NOT alone there.

Morgan and Kruger are on a case, one not too far off from the others that they’ve been on. A son accused of killing his stepdad who happens to be a cop. The evidence and the guy feelings of the troubled twosome send them out to find he truth.

As they usually do, Morgan and Kruger find themselves in a tangled web of lies and secrets that not only put them in more danger but put a crunch on their timeline to find a killer before he strikes again.

Excellent, as always!

I love these Morgan Dane novels. They are well thought out, intelligent and humorous. The children are believable, the relationships are endearing, the characters are realistic. This story has many different unraveled strings that need to be pulled together to find the answers. It is great.

Would you die for a secret?

One of the teens on Lance’s youth hockey team, is suspected of killing his stepfather...a retired deputy sheriff. Morgan and Lance race against time to locate the missing teen before the real killer gets to him. This one was fast paced and kept your interest.

Review of book

I liked the story overall. Melinda needs to write the main characters a little smarter. They are always walking into traps and they lose way too many fights. With all the practice they get, they should win every fight. Their bodies would not survive all these confrpntations.

Great book!! Couldn't put it down.

Love how Melinda Leigh has Morgan and Lance working together so well and care about each other so much. Lance is so caring he would risk his life to save a boy from his hockey team. Can't wait for the next book in this series and I hope it is not the last.

Another Great Book by Melinda Leigh

Secrets Never Die was another one of Ms. Leigh's attention grabbing, action packed story that I thoroughly enjoyed. I have loved watching the characters develop throughout the series yet if someone picked this book up before reading the previous series books, there wouldn't be confusion because she's good at summarizing what has happened in the past without giving away the details. This book has several harrowing scenes and a good mystery. Very engaging?

another good story

as with others in this series, I enjoyed this crime novel. I listened to it on audio which is a new experience and quite nice for a change. I expect I will read more in the series but first a break.
