Bones Don’t Lie – Morgan Dane #3 by Melinda Leigh


A step into the past leads to a shocking discovery.

When a car is pulled out of a local lake, PI Lance Kruger becomes embroiled in the 23 year old case of his father’s disappearance. As Lance and Sharp investigate the remains found in the car, someone is one step ahead and killing anyone associated with the original investigation.  Getting on the wrong side of Sheriff King requires the constant need for legal representation, fortunately for these PI’s they have a lawyer at hand in the form of Morgan Dane.

This is a very emotional story for Lance and it takes him time to let Morgan help him.  I loved the talk Morgan had with him about letting her in and the dedication and unconditional support that love entails.  They make a great partnership and know when to keep things professional and when one really needs the other.

I really was not expecting the ending that this book had, it came as a total shock.  It was one of those moments where I was listening to the book and thinking “no, it can’t be. Surely not. OMG it is!”

A great third instalment in the Morgan Dane series, filled with murder, suspense and a thrilling ending.

Listened to via Audible. Narrated by Cris Dukehart

Rating 5/5


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.

I love to Read! Mostly romance (of all types) but I also enjoy murder mysteries, paranormal fantasy, sci-fi, comedy, pretty much anything.
