Book Description

Death haunts anthropologist Meg Pearce...

In her last summer before college, an innocent camping trip ended in a friend’s disappearance...and destroyed her life.

She lost everything. Her innocence. Her plans for her future. Her best friend and lover.

Seventeen years later, she returns reluctantly to the same area, hoping to move on. But a gruesome discovery sends her reeling back to that dark time.

Detective Chad Ingram has spent the last seventeen years trying to solve the mystery of that camping trip so he too can regain his life…and the lost love of his life.

Only death isn’t done shaking up their lives…and this time they are in the crossfire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kept my attention... October 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Dale Mayer has done it again. Haunted by Death is an excellent psychological thriller that you will not want to put down, even when you reach the final page. Seventeen years ago Meg Pearce and Chad Ingram had it all; the love and a good outlook for the future but all that was lost with the disappearance of a friend while on a camping trip with a group of friends. Flash forward seventeen years, looking for closure, Anthropologist Meg Pearce revisits the place that destroyed her life and makes a discovery that brings the past to the present day. This discovery brings Detective Chad Ingram back into her life and gives them both a chance to bring closure to the past and hope for the future. Although I had the "who done it" figured out, the story line kept me intrigued. I must add that the characters pull you in and the story line flowed smoothly enough to complete the book in one sitting.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Reading the Paranormal Review December 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book had a few twists I didn't see coming. I wish I could talk about them but my aggressive anti-spoiler stance in reviews tells me that wouldn't be appropriate. Instead, I shall simply say "Well done, Dale Mayer. I didn't see that coming." (which, yeah, I said above. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE THINGS I WANT TO TALK ABOUT CAN'T BE SPOKEN OF!)


So. Meg and Chad -- in fact, their entire group of friends -- had to deal with tragedy. It helped shape them all in so many ways. Some ran, some fell into drugs and alcohol, and some became protectors so they could try to untangle the mystery of what happened that summer. But for all of them, the uncertainty behind what happened and the lack of closure has stayed with them.

When Meg stumbles over a body years later, it reunites old friends and puts them on the path of discovering what happened. Do you remember when I mentioned those twists? Yeah, this is where those came in. Because nothing's straightforward and Meg and Chad have to dig to uncover the truth. (Heh. Did you see what I did there? DID YOU? Oh, anthropologist humor. You never get old. *pauses* *stops self from making a crack about how anthropologists deal in old things* *steps away from this entire paragraph before the word-play overtakes me*)

Solid mystery with a nice romance. Meg and Chad are given a chance to rekindle their old love while putting the painful parts of their past to rest. Did I mention the twists? Oh, the twists.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping story October 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Dale Mayer's work is always outstanding and Haunted by Death is no exception. As the tale is revealed, the elements of the past and present weave together to create a magnetic story that pulls the reader further and further into the story. Wonderful well developed characters help bring the story to life as we root for the shadow that has hung over these people to be cleared away and for the ultimate answer to be revealed.As always, there are a couple of twists the shake up the characters and maybe the reader.

Nine young adults spent the weekend at the lake 17 years ago, but only 8 came home. For 17 years the shadow of suspicion has hung over the group and the experience reshaped their lives. Now one of the group has discovered a skeleton that may be the missing friend. This discovery once again changes the dynamics of life for many of the group.

I read this book in the Killer Romances anthology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this author May 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Having read all of this author's Psychic Visions series, I was pretty sure I would enjoy this book. Although I haven't read the first book in this series yet, I wasn't lost at all. It totally stood alone. Unlike the Dale Mayer's other series, this one did not have paranormal elements and was just straight up suspense with a bit of romance thrown in. I really liked the characters and being able to follow their journeys as they tried to finally get their lives back on track after years of just going through the motions. The villain was creepy and unsettling, especially in the end when all he has done is revealed along with who he has been with for the last several years. Without spoilers, all I can say about that is...yuck! Now I need to read the first book in this series so I will be caught up when the next one comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book By Dale Mayer March 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Haunted By Death was a great read. The characters were well developed and the settings were very descriptive. There were twists and turns throughout the whole story making for a very suspenseful read. Just when I thought I had it figured out something would happen to make me change my mind. Although I have read some of Dale Mayer's Psychic Vision series, this is the first I have read in her Death Series. I can tell you it won't be my last. If you like to read romantic suspense full of twists and turn, then this book is a must read for you!
