“4 1/2 stars! Top pick! This is a true thriller that will keep readers frantically flipping the pages as death and danger come at the protagonists from several directions.  Zanetti's brilliance at storytelling is on full display...When it comes to high-octane thrillers, they don't get better than Zanetti!” —RT Book Reviews on LETHAL LIES

“Zanetti’s stories are always woven with vivid detail and a breakneck pace. As a reader, there’s really no time to draw a peaceful breath until the story ends. Lethal Lies is another winner.” –Heroes & Heartbreakers on LETHAL LIES

“Zanetti balances the adventure and menace of Zara and Ryker's lives with a relatable romance. The result is a story that's sexy and emotional, and filled with a rich look at love in all its forms.” —The Washington Post on DEADLY SILENCE

“Budget your time, readers, because this is one that's hard to put down.” — Heroes & Heartbreakers on DEADLY SILENCE

A deadly secret can't stay buried forever . . .

Revenge. It's the only thing that will help Anya Best sleep at night. The serial killer who murdered her sister is on the loose, and Anya will stop at nothing to put him behind bars—even use herself as bait to lure him out of hiding. But she can't do this alone.

Private investigator Heath Jones's job is to bring bastards to justice. This time it's personal. He knew the Copper Killer's latest victim so when her sister asks for his help, he's all in. But when Anya uses the media to taunt the killer, she exposes Heath's identity, putting them both in jeopardy. Now, secrets buried long ago are coming to light and the forces determined to destroy him are watching Heath's every move, waiting to exact their own revenge. And they'll use anything and anyone to get to Heath.


I enjoyed this book. There were times I thought some of the things going on detracted a little from the romance of the story, but if you have read any of these books, you kind of know that going into them, so I was not surprised.

The tension, but the romantic/sexual tension with Anya and Heath and the tension brought on by the serial killer and the secret Heath is keeping all blend really well. And, make this a tough review to write without spoilers. Heck, explaining why I can't review without spoilers is dangerously close to a spoiler.

If you have read others in the series, you have an idea what is going on. If you haven't, I think you get enough of an idea to be able to follow along without being lost.

The book is well constructed and well written. The characters, even the ones who shouldn't be, are realistic and you believe them and the things that happen to them. The pacing is mostly good, with the aforementioned slight issues with the balance of the romance and the action. I am going to keep this short as anything else would just be full of spoilers.

I recommend this book overall.
