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.

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

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

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.

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.

What a story..dark evil, violent, but at the same time it had lots of redundant dialogue, and seemed like it went on forever.

Good quick read. Was a garage sale find and realized quickly that there were books prior to this one. Was good on its own, probably would've been better if I would've started with book one instead of book 13! At some point I might go back and read the other ones, once I'm done with the other 60 books on my "want to read" list.

After reading the cliffhanger of the previous book in Beverly Barton’s Dead by Morning Trilogy http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/99... 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.

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

Satu kata yang cocok menggambarkan situasi yang dihadapi Griff adalah kacau. Di satu sisi dia ingin membantu temannya, Yvette, menemukan anaknya yang kemungkinan juga anak Griff sendiri, di sisi lain dia harus mencari cara untuk menyelamatkan Nic.

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

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

This is the last (tragically) book in Beverly Barton's Griffin Powell series. I have devoured each of the other 12 books in this series. However, this one...not so much. To begin with, there is no new love story. The story revolves around Griffin and Nicole, whose story we've already seen. Nicole is kidnapped by the man calling himself Malcolm York, the sadistic billionaire that kidnapped and held captive Griffin and his two best friends, Yvette and Sanders. But how is this possible?

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

Spektakuler, itu satu kata yang pas untuk menggambarkan novel fantastis ini. Dari halaman pertama sampai terakhir, Beverly Barton sukses merangkum ketegangan demi ketegangan yang seakan tak berkesudahan.

Sayangnya, meski sempurna, masih ada sesuatu yang mengganjal di hati saya. Beverly Barton keburu meninggal dunia sebelum sempat menulis kisah tentang Yvette Meng dan Rafe Bryne. Belum lagi dengan lika-liku perjalanan cinta Barbara Jean dan Damar Sanders yang menggantung. Terus, bagaimana dengan

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...
