Shocking evidence hits close to home for attorney Morgan Dane and PI Lance Kruger as Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh’s acclaimed series continues.
Private investigator Lance Kruger was just a boy when his father vanished twenty-three years ago. Since then he’s lived under the weight of that disappearance—until his father’s car is finally dredged up from the bottom of Grey Lake. It should be a time for closure, except for the skeleton found in the trunk. A missing person case gone cold has become one of murder, and Lance and attorney Morgan Dane must face the deadly past that’s risen to the surface.
For Lance, the investigation yields troubling questions about a man he thought he knew. But memories can play dirty tricks. For Morgan, uncovering each new lie comes with a disquieting fear that someone is out there watching, because someone is killing every witness tied to this decades-old crime. Morgan and Lance follow in the shadows of a relentless killer and walk right into the cross fire.
This was my first time reading Melinda Leigh, and I believe it’s quite safe to say it won’t be my last. As the third installment in her Morgan Dane series, BONES DON’T LIE opens up old and personal wounds for the crime solving duo, attorney Morgan Dane and PI Lance Kruger.
I think as my first read for the series, this was spot on. I wasn’t familiar with the characters but the case Morgan and Lance had to solve was an old one involving Lance’s father, a case that comes to light twenty three years later. So my first ever read of Morgan and Lance didn’t make me feel like a total stranger. I was at an arm’s length away from the characters but not from the case, since everything was discovered in this book. This gave me opportunity to get to know the series regulars a little better. More room for me to focus on them all the while enjoying the murder investigation without feeling like I was missing anything for not having read the previous books.
