Morgan Dane and PI Lance Kruger investigate the mysterious disappearance of a true-crime writer.

When true-crime writer Olivia Cruz disappears with no signs of foul play, her new boyfriend, Lincoln Sharp, suspects the worst. He knows she didn’t leave willingly and turns to attorney Morgan Dane and PI Lance Kruger to find her before it’s too late.

As they dig through Olivia’s life, they are shocked to discover a connection between her current book research on two cold murder cases and the suicide of one of Morgan’s prospective clients.

As Morgan and Lance investigate, the number of suspects grows, but time is running out to find Olivia alive. When danger comes knocking at their door, Morgan and Lance realize that they may be the killer’s next targets.

Every time there is a new book in the  Morgan Dane series , I can’t get it fast enough.  They are on Kindle Unlimited, with the audio version also.  Kidnapping is a common theme in the stories I am reading these days.  Sharp, Morgan, and Lance  are a great team with excellent backgrounds for their work.  They both provide and have an amazing support system in family and friends.

Olivia is just becoming part of their circle and disappears. The team believes she has been kidnapped (they are right) and set to work to find her.  Save Your Breath has a suspenseful mystery with the search and plenty of personal developments as well. With Olivia’s true crime work, there are many possibilities for people who might want to hurt her. The team has to deal with plenty of bad guys who don’t really want to talk to them.

They are just before Morgan and Lance’s wedding.  Gianna is having health issues and needs a kidney even more urgently.  Sharp has just started to get comfortable with his relationship with Olivia. We see quite a bit of Morgan’s sister, Stella this time.  I really enjoy these stories so much!  I am not sure if there is more; I hope so.  In the meantime, I can go back for the earlier Scarlett Falls series, set in this world.


Cris Dukehart does a great job with this series. I am comfortable with all her voices for both male and females. She does have distinct ones for the different characters.  I was able to enjoy the performance at 1.5x speed.
