Raven Mackenzie is a Homicide Detective for the City of Chicago and her partner is Tony Rodriguez. They’re called out one morning to find a mutilated body in a chapel hanging on the crucifix with a note attached that says “Christian, Seek the Truth”. After checking out the contents of the clothes on the body, they discover that the deceased is none other than Mickey Blair, an employee of Dunhill Corporation as Security. What they don’t know is Mickey’s “sideline – that of assassin extraordinaire. They have been given instructions by the Chief to “work with” Fiona Dunhill and close the case, ASAP. During their meeting with Fiona Dunhill is when they meet Christian Delacourt, head of Security for Dunhill Corporation. Raven and Tony decide that they will carry on their investigation without Christian. Fiona asks Christian to work with the police in solving the murder of Mickey Blake.


Christian Delacourt (don’t you just love that name??) has a thing against all police, with good reason or so he believes, based on something that happened to him as a child. He promises Fiona that he will assist them, while deciding to carry on the investigation without the police. He would do anything for Fiona, who took him in after the tragedy that occurred when Christian was ten, but feels like a fish out of water once he discovers Fiona has left him to clean up the mess surrounding Mickey’s death. Once he realizes that the note on the dead body is meant for him, he’s quite sure there is more going on than even he knows but to get to the bottom of it he must confront Fiona while fighting his attraction for Raven. After a murder attempt on Tony, Christian decides that Raven will be safer with him behind the iron gate of Dunhill Estate. Christian decides to search the house for clues and that is when he learns more about his life, and the woman he works for, that he ever bargained and feels the ultimate betrayal.


Jordan Dane has written a complex tale of murder, deceit, betrayal, treachery, mystery, love lost, love found in No One Left to Tell. Both Raven and Christian have some emotional baggage and they fight their attraction as much as they can; Raven because Christian may be a suspect and Christian because Raven is a cop. Both have obstacles to overcome but the one thing they are learning about one another is the other will be there, when needed. No One Left to Tell is a fascinating story that is a must read for fans of many genres! Kudos, Ms. Dane! Can’t wait for book 3!!!!!
