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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Great Book!! Need more Karen Rose on Audible.
Excellent! I read this in print & audio both were great. I have to say I enjoyed audio best because Tavia Gilbert is just wicked brilliant. I can't wait to read the last one, Kill for Me, and I'll AudioRead only this one. Then of course I must read Karen Rose's series that this trilogy is in the middle of. Again, excellent mystery/suspence/thriller. Kinda sappy side romances but they fit.
This is the first time I've listened or read anything by this author. I thought this book was very good. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the narrator wasn't that great trying to do men's voices. Otherwise I would highly recommend it.
I enjoyed the book, however, the narration was horrible. Affected southern dialect too unreal as to be distracting and amusing. New narrator or no more for my money!!
