"Sometimes truth is found only in the dark"
"Seek the truth, Christian" reads the cryptic message left
with the body, hanging from the chapel's crucifix. But what
truth? And for who? That is homicide detective Raven
Mackenzie's job to find out. A job that leads her to former
crime boss Fiona Dunhill and her mysterious to-drool-over
Head of Security, Christian Delacorte.
As Christian joins the investigation and the heat level
ratchets up between him and the determined detective, they
learn that seeking the truth can push you to the other side
of danger where both of their pasts collide with the
present. Sometimes the truth grabs you by the throat and
No One Left to Tell is not a light hearted romantic
romp. Instead it drags you into unlit corners and assaults
you with its dark grinding energy. Raven and Christian are
a perfect fit for each other like a fist and a sledge
hammer. Both are powerful, tough, intelligent and
relentless in pursuing the truth, even as it leads to
places they don't want to go. Their don't-back-away
attitude translates well into a building passion and
exposed vulnerabilities that they don't shy away from.
I've heard Jordan Dane's "No One" series compared to a
roller coaster ride. Definitely true, especially if it's an
indoor pitch black coaster where you can't see the next
drop until you're already falling. I'm running around the
gate to get back in line for the next ride and the final
book in the "No One" series. Care to join me? Buckle in and
keep your hands inside the car at all times.
