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 Perdue 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Barton...leads readers through a maze of twisted suspense. While some answers are provided at the end, there is an unabashed hook that will force readers to read the next in this trilogy.”

    Romantic Times

  • “The second ‘Dead’ thriller is a great romantic suspense that grips the audience from the moment the protagonists begin to learn of the assault on Powell and never lets go as the climax diabolically leads to the next unpublished tale. The lead pair is a terrific coupling…However, what makes Dead by Morning super is the serial killer, who will be considered one of the vilest of the year.”

    Mystery Gazette

  • “The popular and dependable Barton has again created an intricately plotted, thoroughly engrossing serial killer tale that satisfactorily resolves the current dilemmas but leaves a stunning cliff-hanger.”

    Library Journal 

  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " This instalment was ok, but i did take me quite a while to get throught it, as i kept picking it up and putting it down, the last few chapters were good, think i'll have a little rest before i jump inot the next one though. "

    " This was the second in a series and was a continuation of the first book but not a complete cliffhanger. This one however ended with a total cliffhanger at the end so you really need to read the 3rd book in the series. "

    Suspense with a bit of romance tucked in... and part of a series. Not sure if the next book is out yet (may check) "
