Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of Closer than You Think returns with a breathtaking new novel of suspense that crosses the line between danger and desire and justice and revenge.

Homicide detective Scarlett Bishop has seen enough bad guys slip through the cracks and too many innocent victims go unavenged to know that good doesn't always prevail. So far she's been able to lock away her rage and her vigilante fantasies. That lock is about to break.

Former army ranger Marcus O'Bannion is a fierce champion of victims' rights. His secret past gives him good reason. He believes he's seen the depths of human depravity, but then his investigation into the murder of a young girl who once asked for his help lures him and Scarlett down a dark, dark road - and straight into the crosshairs of a dangerous, powerful underground ring that deals in human trade. To stop them Scarlett and Marcus have to be just as cunning and just as ruthless. But first they have to make it out alive.

    "Captured me"

    First, for those that have the problem with the missing chapters. That happened to me also, I had to remove it from my phone and re-download, that corrected the problem.

    I enjoy Karen Rose and this was a little different from the others. Having so many bad guys caused the story to be a bit busy but I liked the story itself. I was missing Scarlet's problem resolution. Nothing happened with that story. It didn't really relate to the story and it didn't come up again. In other stories both the lead characters have issues that need to be resolved. Her's was touched on in the beginning then nothing, so what was the point?

    I also didn't understand the point of the spoiled brat, her character was just plain irritating.

    Two irritants not bad for 30 hours.

    "Unfinished story"

    It abruptly stopped at the end and story not complete. If ending not provided I should get a refund.

    "Fixed the issue, for any who need the remaining hours."

    Just delete and re-download the book, and you will have the extra hours!I was so mad when the book just ended without a conclusion. I immediately called Audible and explained what had happened. He found 6 hours were not downloading as part of the book. The problem has now been fixed. Thanks audible!

    "Okay at first."

    In the beginning I did struggle with this book trying to understand who was who and as I gat further in the chapters then I started to pick up who was who a lot better. I was surprise how it ended I was looking for more to read I hope there's a book 3. The narrator was good I like how she changed her voice tones.

    "SO FRUSTRATING! 30+ Hours - NO ENDING@#$! REALLY!"

    The book and plot was good, if a bit over the top and too long. But I hung in there...AND THEN THAT STUPID NO-ENDING ENDING. I am so mad. I CANNOT stand to feel like I have been maneuvered into buying the next book in a series. I don't mind some unresolved issues going in to the next book, but this book ends with NO RESOLUTION AT ALL. It totally ruined my prior enjoyment of the book. This is a rip off and a turn off to me - both toward the publisher and the author. Way too much time to invest in a book that leaves you hanging to this degree.

    I am usually a big fan of Karen Rose, but this sincerely angered me. It's like your reading/listening and the WHAM, that's it. No warning - the book just stops - not ends - stops. Because there is no coherent ending at all to this book.

    I truly don't believe I will invest in another 30 hours of the next book to find out what was supposed to happen in this book. Save your credit!

    "Suspenseful!"

    Great follow up on first book in this series. Found I didn't want to put it down, even listening well into the night. Did a wonderful job of 'tying up' all the lose ends so one is not left hanging after so many hours of anticipation. Sorry when it was over. Now reviewing other novels by Karen to pick my next audible book.

    Loved the narrator as she was able to bring all the characters to life and the story easy to follow. Disappointed that I can't find other books by Karen Rose (except book 1) with this lady to listen to. Do hope future novels will be read by her. (Please?)

    Story
    "A little disappointed"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If they were a fan of Karen Rose yes, but understand that the first book in the series was much better. This book leaves you wanting more from the characters.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Some parts yes, but overall it needed more suspense.


    Which character – as performed by Hillary Huber – was your favorite?

    Both Scarlett and Marcus are well done.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I had to go back at certain points to try to make sense of the progression of the investigation. Then at other times it was too predictable.


    Any additional comments?

    It was unclear how some of the characters were related to one another. The human trafficking was never fleshed out enough. Seems the research was lacking details that I have come to expect from Ms. Rose. There is no background as it relates to why and how Ken and his group came together and deal in human trafficking. Too many unanswered questions at the end. A series should leave the reader with a hook wanting to read the next book, but this ending was a bit frustrating. I don't want all the threads wrapped up in a pretty bow, but some of the loose ends should have a satisfying conclusion.

    Story
    "Who swallows audibly that much?"

    Okay. I enjoyed the story. This author is entertaining, which is exactly what I'm looking for. I did notice, however, in this book, many of the characters "swallow audibly" or "gulp audibly" a lot. It's distracting. I mean, really? Aside from cartoons and comedy, do you really know anyone that actually swallows audibly on a regular basis?

    I share this, because it was annoying. In the previous book, many of the characters said "oh God" repeatedly. This time, they all swallow really loud. I'm downloading the next book in the series now. Can't wait to see what new tick her characters have developed!

    Oh, I did enjoy the story and the book (I skipped the sex scenes, because I don't require that much detail), I just find certain aspects a bit tedious.
