Malcolm York is a sadistic monster, guilty of unspeakable crimes. And with his endless wealth he's funded a series of depraved hunts. The few who survived can never forget. They can only be thankful the terror is over. Until rumors start swirling. . .
Only Stops. . .
Griffin Powell knows the twisted depths of York's madness. He's also sure that York is dead. But then Griff's wife, Nicole, disappears and the phone calls begin--that familiar voice taunting him, promising to destroy everything Griff loves.
When You Die. . .
Using all the resources of the Powell Agency, Griff searches for Nic, aware that every step propels him further into a madman's web. Because the only way to keep Nic safe is to join one last perverse game where winner kills all, and the loser is dead by nightfall. . .

***Though the publisher provides the free book, I offer the opinion.***My Look:If you're a fan of the late Beverly Barton, you might think the plot line in DEAD BY NIGHTFALL may seem familiar, but it is not. The author wraps up her Dead By trilogy by laying many lives on the line, again.This is not just reminiscent of the past for Investigator Griffin Powell; it's a nightmare times two.Griffin Powell's distant past has become his present and threatens his future, when his wife goes missing. Soon his telephone rings just to taunt him, the same way it did many years ago.However, many things are different but not all of them are good. Grif's former FBI Agent wife, Nicole is pregnant, and he'll give his life to this deranged psycho to save her. Nevertheless, first he must play the game to find a way to rescue the woman he loves, even if it means others may die.In a way, Malcolm York picks up right where Pudge leaves off, but he takes an even more perverse thrill in both the game and the hunt.Will Grif and his associates at Powell Private Security and Investment Agency find Nic in time? On the other hand, will Malcolm win?My Take:The late Beverly Barton's edge-of-your-seat, thrilling suspense continues with DEAD BY NIGHTFALL. This book will provide terror and romance to give readers sleepless nights.DEAD BY NIGHTFALL is a standalone title, and if you haven't read the other books in the Dead by series, you'll just enter the game at a different point. However, you will experience the shocking jolt of thrills for the first time.You'll want to read the other titles in the series DEAD BY MIDNIGHT (Kensington 2010) and DEAD BY MORNING (Zebra 2011).read more
