A deadly secret can't stay buried forever . . .

Revenge. It's the only thing that will help Anya Best sleep at night. The serial killer who murdered her sister is on the loose, and Anya will stop at nothing to put him behind bars-even use herself as bait to lure him out of hiding. But she can't do this alone.

Private investigator Heath Jones's job is to bring bastards to justice. This time it's personal. He knew the Copper Killer's latest victim so when her sister asks for his help, he's all in. But when Anya uses the media to taunt the killer, she exposes Heath's identity, putting them both in jeopardy. Now, secrets buried long ago are coming to light and the forces determined to destroy him are watching Heath's every move, waiting to exact their own revenge. And they'll use anything and anyone to get to Heath.

With twists and turns that will take your breath away, LETHAL LIES is sexy, action-packed suspense at its very best from New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti.


Anya Best is beside herself. A serial killer murdered her sister, an FBI agent, and he is on he loose. Anya will do anything to help catch the man, even acting as bait. Not so to private investigator Heath Jones. As he knew the latest victim of the serial killer, when her sister, Anya, asks for help, he indeed steps in. Heath, along with his brothers, Ryker and Denver, has his own method for getting the guy. However, Anya unwittingly thwarts Heath's plans, as she taunts the killer, thus placing both herself and Heath in danger.

Heath's past is dangerous and things are coming to a head. Now exposed, Heath must contend with keeping not only himself and Anya safe, but must also protect his brothers. In the first book in this series, readers learned of Isobel Madison and Sheriff Elton Cobb. They were pivotal to the brothers' past, and are front and center when it comes to their present danger.

This book starts off with a bang! I found it to be thrilling as searching for the killer was paramount, but then so was staying one step ahead of Madison and Cobb. As in the previous story, there is passion, suspense and danger in spades. The Jones brothers are relentless, but are very good to the women in their lives. In this case, the relationship between Heath and Anya works, right from the outset.

Lethal Lies is the second on the Blood Brothers series. This book would be better served if Deadly Silence, the first in the series, has been read. The last book in the trilogy, which is another must-read, is Twisted Truths.



Rebecca Zanetti is the author of over forty romantic suspense, dark paranormals, and contemporary romances, and her books have appeared multiple times on the New York Times, USA Today, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and iBooks bestseller lists.  She lives in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest with her own Alpha hero, two kids, a couple of dogs, a crazy cat…and a huge extended family.  She believes strongly in luck, karma, and working her butt off…and she thinks one of the best things about being an author, unlike the lawyer she used to be, is that she can let the crazy out.  Upcoming series are: The Blood Brothers, The Realm Enforcers and The Scorpius Syndrome.  


Rebecca Zanetti wrote her first story when she was six – a romance between a princess and neighboring prince.  The princess fell out of her castle and the prince rescued her. A happily ever after was had by all.

This theme of romance has been carried through Rebecca’s works until present time.  While today’s heroine may have a medical degree, black belt in Karate and her own 401K, she’s still after that happy ending.  And today’s prince may have fangs and wear a black hat, but hey, a modern princess likes a guy who bites.

Rebecca attended Pepperdine University, earning a bachelor’s degree in Journalism with a Political Science emphasis.  While there she worked as the Editor-in-Chief of The Graphic newspaper, a member of the Pi Phi Sorority and an intern for President Reagan, who still gave 3-5 speeches a week, even though he was no longer president. 

After college, Rebecca worked as an art curator and a Senate aide before heading to law school, where she received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho.  She married Tony Zanetti in the middle of her second year of law school and became pregnant with their first child during the third year.  She graduated law school, gave birth three weeks later, and took the Bar Exam three weeks after that.  All she remembers about the bar exam is that it was so quiet in the testing room, she thought about taking a quick nap.  But she continued on, passed the bar and became a lawyer.   She worked for a large firm, then a small firm, then the county while also teaching legal classes at her local community college.  Now she writes  romances about vampires, cowboys, and soldiers.

Growing up amid the glorious backdrops and winter wonderlands of the Pacific Northwest has given Rebecca fantastic scenery and adventures to weave into her stories.  She resides there with her husband, children and extended family who inspire her every day.  Rebecca has completed several manuscripts, winning award throughout the writing industry for her work.  She is currently writes the Scorpius Syndrome series and the Realm Enforcer series (a Dark Protector spinoff) for Kensington Publishing, and the Sin Brothers series  and the Lost Bastard Series for Grand Central Publishing.

The Coeur d’Alene Press recently published an article about Rebecca called  “A Novel to Sink Your Teeth Into.”
