They both wanted quieter, safer lives.
But crime never sleeps . . .
and killers keep killing.

After years as a Chicago homicide detective, Lisa Grant is ready for the kinder, gentler life of a small-town police chief. But the discovery of a human skeleton by a construction crew at the edge of town taxes department resources. Enter ex-Navy SEAL Mac McGregor, the detective sent by the county to assist on the case. As they work to solve the mystery behind the unmarked grave, danger begins to shadow them. Someone doesn't want this dead person telling any tales--and will stop at nothing to make certain a life-shattering secret stays buried.

"The queen of inspirational romantic suspense" (Library Journal) is at the top of her game with this riveting new series.

"An excellent suggestion for inspirational fiction fans as well as readers who enjoy Mary Higgins Clark's subtly chilling brand of suspense."

Irene Hannon is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors and I'm excited about her new Men of Valor series. A chilling prologue sets the stage for this aptly titled novel, immediately piquing my interest. Hannon creates likable characters in Chief Lisa Grant and Detective Mac McGregor, and I enjoyed their interactions and teamwork. As befits a suspense novel, Hannon gradually adds characters and drama to the story, pacing it well and stretching out the climax to the last seconds, causing me a few anxious heartbeats at the critical moments! Be prepared to read this one straight through, and be sure your blinds are tightly closed before starting it, folks! Don't miss this compelling opening of an exciting new series.
