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)

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.

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.

Great read

Love this series. Not as good as the previous ones, because the plot seemed a little spotty, but still an excellent read. :)

Just couldn’t get into it

I tried to find this book it had most of the parts that I would normally like but it just evolved into two different parts of one story tracking investigators tracking the mother and tracking the boy. But some of it just didn’t make sense as to why the boy wouldn’t reach out to certain friends or try to reach out to his mother I don’t know just got to unrealistic I guess for this type of thing you might like it, I just didn’t

Dangerous Quest

A heart racing, deadly race to find a teenager who witnessed a murder. Melinda Leigh has again penned a fast paced mystery story that I had to finish in one day. Great performance by Cris Dukehart that brings the story to life.

Mystery

I just love this author. I just can't stop reading these books. When I am not reading I am trying to figure out the who, what and why. The narration is amazing.

Another hit by Melinda Leigh

A very enjoyable mystery with relatable characters! The narrator did a wonderful job as well. I recommend this book as I do all of this author's books!
