Mary Burton brings readers back to Nashville, its Police Department and the city’s renowned law enforcement family, the Morgans, in her new novel of suspense and romance, I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO, a paperback original on sale October 27th. The Morgans were introduced in Burton’s highly praised USA Today bestseller COVER YOUR EYES, and returned in her USA Today and New York Times bestseller BE AFRAID. Now, in I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO, the siblings, fueled by their late father’s heroic legacy in their pursuit of justice, face a savage killing that leads to a game of psychological cat and mouse.
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Agent Alex Morgan takes over the case when the horrific death of an unidentified man hints to involvement by one of Nashville P.D.’s finest, Detective Deidre Jones. Alex begins by befriending veterinarian Leah Carson, newly returned to the city and a supposed confidant of Deirdre’s. As attraction trumps friendship, the two are drawn closer and Alex learns more about her. Four years ago, Leah’s then estranged husband stalked her and almost succeeded in killing her, stabbing her twenty-three times before fleeing as police arrived. Soon after he died in a car accident.
Before Alex can find the connection between the John Doe and Deirdre, she’s found dead in her home, the victim of a savage knife attack that all too closely echoes what happened to Leah. Deirdre’s ex is an obvious suspect, but even before Alex can interview all the members of Deirdre and Leah’s running group, the case becomes more complicated. Leah’s privacy is being breached. She’s a victim of identity theft, receives threatening calls and anonymous flowers and can’t shake a feeling of dread, the certainty that someone is watching and that time is running out.
In I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO, Mary once again indulges her interest in law enforcement and forensic procedure in a story exploring human nature, relationships, the horrors some will inflict and the lengths to which others will go to stop them.
