With a handful of images as his only lead, Daniel is determined to bring the current murderer to justice and solve the mysterious crime from years ago. His search will lead him back through the dark past of his own family and into the realm of a mind more sinister than he could ever imagine. But his quest will also draw him to Alex Fallon, a beautiful nurse whose troubled past reflects his own - and who is now the object of a murderer's dark obsession. His race to discover the criminal's identity may also be his only chance to save the woman he loves.

I liked the overall story, but I found the way it was constantly divided by dates and times a little too distracting for audio. Aside from that, the author did a good job with character development and storyline. It just might translate a little better in hard copy.
This book I tell you was AWESOME!!! This was, but will not be my last listen to Karen Rose. I could not stop. I went as far as to download it to my Ipod and my work computer. I highly recommend this book.
nail biting, surprising, eye opening
at the birth of the baby
no laughing, stunning and shocking
happily ever afters
Terrific romantic suspense story and top notch southern drawl narration. Although the story was reviewed as dark & edgy it isn't gory and blessedly lacks descriptive details of torture. The attraction between Special Agent Daniel Vartarian and Alex Fallon bypasses simmer and begins boiling on the first CD and doesn't let up until the end. This guy is so hero worthy it isn't funny. What I liked about Alex was her ability to let her temper/feelings show, instantly apologize when confronted with reason and logic, and then let it go. She didn't get all hotheaded and self righteous when Daniel was forced to do an end run around her. She recognized danger and in her own words, "Of course I'll stay put. I'm not stupid." This is were many authors error and deliberately create flimsy conflict.
I enjoyed this book. It had a nice pace that never got boring and a plot that kept you guessing. From a writers' point of view it probably had a lot that could be criticized, but if you suspend your critique and go a long for the ride you won't be disappointed. Surprise ending - perhaps a bit too much of a surprise, but overall an enjoyable read.
I love a good supernatural story with good content, especially from authors that don't feel the need to add smut.
I enjoyed the story but the narration was poor. She kept pronouncing Daniel's name Danielle and her "male" voices sounded like little old ladies. It detracted from the story.
