Cover Your Eyes by Mary Burton

Cover Your Eyes

Don’t Look 

At first, they struggle to escape. Then a torrent of blows rains down upon their bodies until their eyes cloud over in final agony. The killer shows no remorse–just a twisted need to witness each victim’s last terrified moments.

Don’t Speak

Public defender Rachel Wainwright is struggling to reopen a decades-old case, convinced that the wrong man is in prison. Homicide detective Deke Morgan doesn’t want to agree. But if Rachel’s hunch is correct, whoever fatally bludgeoned young, beautiful Annie Dawson thirty years ago could be the source of a new string of brutal slayings.

Just Prepare To Die

Rachel’s investigation is about to reveal answers–but at a price she never thought to pay. Now she’s become the target of a rage honed by years of jealousy and madness. And a murderer is ready to show her just how vicious the truth can be…

Cover Your Eyes is the first novel in the Morgans of Nashville series. Each novel in the series focuses on a Morgan sibling (4 siblings in total) who end up falling in love and solving a murder. Up first is Homicide detective Deke Morgan, who is living in his late father’s shadow. He is even working with his father’s ex-partner.

In comes Rachel Wainwright who is fighting to overturn her client’s conviction. Unfortunately for her, her client is seen as one of Nashville’s most convinced killers who was put away by Deke’s father 30 years ago. There is also new deaths of young women that has everyone questioning who is the real killer.

I’m torn on my thoughts of the novel. I didn’t guess who the killer was at all, but it almost seemed like too much was saved until the end. There was so much revealed in the last 5 pages that it was hard to keep up. I was confused on what I was suppose to focus on as the biggest reveal. I also didn’t love Deke and Rachel as main characters.

2 calculators out of a potential 5. Sadly this was a miss for me. I have the fourth novel in the series sitting on my book shelf that I’m not in a hurry to get to.

  1. Too bad this one didn’t measure up Amanda. Yes, when there is just too much left to the last few pages, it seems like the author has cheated. Better luck with the next book you read.
