Nicole & Griff akhirnya dibuatkan cerita lagi oleh Beverly Barton (BB)di Dead by Midnight. Di Murder Game, Nic & Griff diceritakan menikah ttp ternyata masih ada ganjalan yg tertinggal di benak Nic tentang hubungan yg sebenarnya antara Griff dan Yvette. Karena Griff slalu berkata hubungan antara mereka hanya seperti kakak adik. Akhirnya bom tsb meledak ketika Griff menerima surat dari Malcolm York (yg seharusnya sudah mati dibunuh sendiri oleh Griff) yg mengabarkan bahwa York memiliki/me ...more
I loved this book, but it is definitely not for the faint of heart. This was was gritty and disturbing, but an excellent conclusion to the series. There was much less romance in Dead by Nightfall than the previous books of the series. I enjoyed the suspense, but would have preferred a little more romance. That didn't bother me enough to affect my rating. Since things have not been going well between Nicole and Griffin in the last few books, I was glad to read this one that wraps up their story. ...more
Rating: 2.5 / 5

I find I'm a bit at a loss for words as to what to say about this book...

Series Note:
13th, and likely final, book in the "Griffin Powell" series of related books. Do you need to read the others? I honestly don't know. There's a large amount of backstory, including the fact that the H/H get together in another book. But the story may be independent enough to read...but I just can't really say.

Many years ago, Griffin Powell and his two best friends, Damar Sanders and Yvette

Recommends it for: fans of Powell Agency series, dark, violent, mystery/suspense w/ light romance

Dead by Nightfall is the final book in Beverly Barton's Dead by Series.. Although it follows key members of her Powell Agency Series. This book was one intense, suspense filled moment after another an amazing ride full of plot twists and character changes. The only thing we were ever quite sure of was what was up and what was down and sometimes even that was lost for a moment or two.


This book is a most definite read but you really must read at the very le

Review posted on Fiction Vixen Book Reviews

Dead by Nightfall is the third book in Beverly Barton’s Dead by trilogy and the 13th book in the Griffin Powell series. It is really the continuation of Griffin and Nicole’s story. Their story started in book 8, The Murder Game. While that book ended in a good place there were hints of unhappiness between Griff and Nic in the last couple of books. Griff has been keeping a very big secret from Nic and in Dead by Nightfall the secret come

I ended up really enjoying the "Dead By" series a lot more than I thought I would after the first book. I now feel compelled to go back and read the previous "Griffin Powell" books, even though they will be a little anti-climactic knowing where we are now.
One of the signs of a good book, is not being able to wait to see how things turn out, and the last 2 in this series, especially this one, put me completely in that frame of mind. I really couldn't get to the end soon enough, but for good rea

What a story..dark evil, violent, but at the same time it had lots of redundant dialogue, and seemed like it went on forever.
the last book in the powell agency series, as the author passed away this year. it wraps up most of what's been happening with the characters we've seen over the years, except for a couple, and has an HEA for many of the characters.

I have enjoyed reading Beverly Barton's stories and was sad to learn she has passed away. She will be missed by her many fans! God Bless!
What a great way to end a series! I thought this book was great.

Setelah merasa curiga dengan Griffin tentang hubungannya dengan Yvette saat mereka bersama-sama menjadi tawanan Malcolm York di Amara sejak enam belas tahun yang lalu, Nic memutuskan untuk menenangkan perasaannya di pondok pribadinya. Nic tidak tahu, ternyata di pondok tersebut telah menunggu seseorang yang jahat dan berniat menculiknya atas perintah Malcolm York.

Berita mengenai penculikan Nic akhirnya diterima oleh Griffin, dan disaat yang sama ia juga mengetahui kehadiran Malcolm
This book was so painful to read! I read this so fast because I did a lot of skimming through the pages. This book is a more depraved version of her previous book, The Murder Game. Even worse, it involves the exact same characters except this time poor Nicole is pregnant. There was very little romance in this book, especially since the lead characters are already married and have very little interaction with each other. As for the suspense part, the author took this story to such a dark place, I ...more
Sadly Beverly Barton died earlier this year RIP. She was the first author I read when I started reading Romantic Suspense. I will miss not reading any more of her books. This was not her last book, it is the last in the Griffin Powell series. Don't say a Word, second book to Don't Cry is due out in August 2012.

In the end of Dead by Morning Nicole left Griffin's rest to stay at their cabin retreat in Gatlinburg. There she is kidnapped by Anthony Linden, an assassin who she believed was dead. For

Bingung mau kasih rating berapa, 4 atau 5. Tegangnya dapat, serunya dapat, memacu adrenalin dah, tapiiiiiiiii...ada beberapa hal yang bikin aku sebel sama buku ini.

Dari awal cerita sampai menjelang akhir, otomatis Nic+Griff terpisah jarak yang jauh alias gak ketemu sama sekali. Griff malah ke mana-mana lengket sama Yvette. Emank atas instruksi si York sih, tapi tetep saja sebel baca scene-scene yang ada mereka berdua.

Trus, orang-orang yang mengetahui perihal kehamilan Nicole, semua pada sepakat

Griffin Powell is a man to be reckoned with; he stands larger than life in the path of evil. After everything Griffin has been through, he fears nothing. Until now! In an impossible turn of events Griffin Powell is about to re-visit his past head on. “Nicole is missing”, if these words are not enough to strike fear into the all-powerful Griffin Powell, hearing Malcolm York has kidnapped her is sure to do it. A deadly game orchestrated by an unknown imposter who is mirroring the actions of the lu ...more

After reading "Last to Die" by this author, and enjoying it so much, I was eager to read another of her tales. Alas, like everything else, all books, even by the same author, are not always as good. This is one of them. During the weeks of reading this story, I completed two others as well. I had a hard time getting started, for some reason, and then felt let down at the end, and left wanting. The middle was good, and built me up for a fantastic ending, then fizzled out.

Ok, maybe I was expecting

After reading the cliffhanger of the previous book in Beverly Barton’s Dead by Morning Trilogy I really wanted to know what would happen next. In Dead by Nightfall we finally discovered what happened to Griffin Powell, Damar Sanders and Dr Yvette Meng and why Nicole Baxter Powell is kidnapped.
A deadly cat and mouse game between Malcolm York, who Griffin knows is an imposter as he had personally killed him when he escaped from Amara, the island where Grif

Beverly Barton delivers the last dark and thrilling installment to her latest suspense Dead by Trilogy.

FBI Agent Nicole Powell is upset that her husband has just revealed his past relationship with one of his colleagues and friend. The truth is that her husband might have a child with this woman and it is almost too much for her to handle. Despite that there is danger lurking around from the past, Nicole needs a break and she retreats to her cabin. The problem is that she is abducted by enemies

This was by far the craziest book I've ever read, but i just could not put it down! As I was reading this I thought how could someone think like this. Then it was how can they write about it and share it. Then I thought how am I reading this and sooooo wraped up in it! def sonething different from my normal reading but it was good.
Chris Reed-retterer
I really enjoyed this book. I don't often re-read a book because once you know "who did it" what is the point, but I kept this book on my shelf and will definitely be reading it again!

Nicole has been kidnapped by the man who had been killing Powell agents. Now the new Malcom York had her and was leading Griff around by his nose.
Suka sama buku ini, tapi ntah kenapa selama baca buku ini, gw selalu kebayang alur cerita The Hunger Games, mgkn krn games dalam cerita di buku ini, mirip bgt sama jalan cerita di buku The Hunger Games, dan hal ini agak membuat tidak nyaman selama membacanya, jadi berasa kurang greget. Gw malah jadi penasaran ma kisah Rafe dan Yvette, sayang tidak mgkn akan ada kelanjutannya. Hiks...

D gitu kok gw merasa Nicole berhasil selamat hanya karena keberuntungan memiliki partner yang keren dan oke, bukan
yes, thank you, Beverley, this is better than 1 and possible 2 too. I liked 2, but this is different again and certainly full of suspense and has plenty of thrills as well. I liked the premise from a suspense/thriller point of view and would not be surprised if at least some of this book was partly true. Human beings can wallow in the depths of depravity as well as reaching the heights of greatness through creativity & achievement for the betterment of humankind. This book takes us on that j ...more

It was intense and terrifying all at the same time! It took a while for all the character backgrounds to build up and then it was a rolling boulder from there. In my opinion is should not be classified as a romance novel, not much love in it except for the main characters... I recommend this book to anyone who asks.
Tadinya, sama seperti Nic, aku juga ga suka dg hub antara Griff dan Yvette. maunya si Yvette jauh2 aja dari kehidupan Griff-Nic.
Tapi setelah membaca Dead by Nightfall ini, sama seperti Nic lagi, aku jadi bisa memahami hub Griff-Yvette dan jadinya malah simpati sama Yvette.

Sepanjang membaca novel ini, aku penasaran banget sama identitasnya si peniru Malcolm York. tapi setelah ketahuan, malah terasa anti klimaks. gitu aja toh.

Untuk cerita perburuannya, mmg agak mengingatkan sama Hunger Games. ng
