The federal bureaucrat charged with stopping the importation of dangerous materials vanishes only days before enacting a new list of prohibited substances.


Homicide detective turned Homeland Security Agent Greg Kane suspects that the HHS employee may have been killed to keep the new list from going into effect, but he has no idea who’s behind the crime, which chemical they are so desperate to import, and what they plan to do with it once they’ve gotten their hands on it.


After he dives into the case Kane discovers a possible link between the official’s disappearance and the two-year-old disappearance of Kane’s nephew while he was transporting a dangerous federal prisoner.


Were the crimes connected? What happened to Kane’s nephew, and what does the escaped fugitive plan to do next?


A Stellar Addition to Any Bookshelf

This story definitely struck a chord in me, and there was something powerful and frightening about the context of the plot. The underhanded dealings of terrorist organizations and government agencies are not as fictional as one imagined a few decades ago, and this novel seems both timely and strikingly honest. These are the types of elaborate plots that you imagine watching on primetime news specials, and Grace captures that immediacy and timeliness with an entertaining and unpredictable ride through this twisted story. It would have been an interesting novel at that point, but then Grace ups the ante and adds a fascinating interlinked plotline with Kane's family, which makes the story less believable, but far more engaging for a reader, who suddenly has an entirely new sympathetic connection to the characters. I was very impressed by how quickly the author managed to get this book stuck in my hands. 4 days of reading - tops. It was exceptionally addictive, and I would expect this author to continue thrilling me long into the future. The ability to mix relatable issues with universal emotions is a wonderful foundation for any literary career.

Another page turner

Death Never Lies is a mystery novel written by David Grace that features Homeland Security Agent Greg Kane. In this novel Kane is requested to assist in a case involving the disappearance of a federal bureaucrat mere days before he is supposed to help enact a new list of substances prohibited by the government. Kane quickly discovers that this case may be linked to the disappearance of his nephew two years prior.

This story has a little bit of everything. There is suspense, action and even a little romance on the side. I particularly enjoyed how easily Grace was able to keep me on my toes with is writing. It took me almost until the end of the book to figure out who the criminal mastermind was and as far as I’m concerned that is the key to a great book. I look forward to reading more of Grace’s work and hope to see more from Agent Kane.

Favorite detective story this year!

This isn't just a fun detective story. I've read a few books by this author and yes, I enjoy the detective sleuthing. But his development of several main characters seems to get better and better. I'm drawn not just by the chase, but by an affinity to the well-examined cops and their lives, which like most of us, have a fair amount of pain, sometimes related to the job. The book also has some parallel plots with well developed characters, and great descriptions of creative applied electronic sleuthing. I have no problem giving this book 5 stars.
