The last sounds Dean Wilson hears are a clock striking twelve and a killer’s taunting words. And his death is just the first. One by one, victims are stalked and shot at close range. Only the killer knows their sins, and who will be the next to die at midnight?
And in life…
In the ten years since her Hollywood career imploded, Lorie Hammonds has built a good life in her Alabama hometown. When the first death threat arrives, she assumes it’s a joke. Then she gets a second. Sheriff Mike Birkett, her high school sweetheart, has avoided Lorie since she returned to Dunmore, but when investigators uncover her connection to a string of recent murders, he’s drawn into a case that’s terrifyingly personal.
Timing is everything.
With every murder, the killer edges closer. Soon Lorie’s will be the last name left on his list. Her only hope is to unearth a deadly secret—before the clock runs out for good.

From Audiobook Fans’ review:
“Karen White was an excellent narrator for Dead by Midnight. With so many characters and scenes, White rolled with the punches. She expressed real anger, fright and intent in her voices and I enjoyed her performance.”
From Audiofile Magazine’s review:
“Karen White’s portrayals of Southerners sound relaxed and authentic. In addition, her transitions between male and female characters are smooth, and she gives each character an engaging, if not distinctive, voice.”
