Publisher's Summary

The past comes back to haunt a high-profile defense attorney in the newest audiobook in the Baltimore series from The New York Times best-selling author of Monster in the Closet.

In his work as a defense attorney in Baltimore, Thorne has always been noble to a fault - specializing in helping young people in trouble in an attempt to atone for those he couldn't save when he himself was younger. He plays the part of the bachelor well but secretly holds a flame for his best friend and business partner, Gwyn Weaver, a woman struggling to overcome her own demons. After four years, he thinks he might finally be ready to confess his feelings, come what may. 

But his plans are derailed when he wakes up in bed with a dead woman, with no recollection of how he got there. Whoever is trying to frame Thorne is about to lead him down the rabbit hole of his past, something he thought he outran long ago - which means Thorne must figure out who's been keeping track of him, how much they know, and how far they'll go to bring him down.

Another winner from Karen Rose...

This book is part of Rose's Baltimore series. It begins with attorney Thomas Thorne being found in bed with a murdered woman, both on high quantities of drugs and the woman carved up. Thorne, who has been accused and tried for murder in the past but was acquitted now has a feeling of deja vu. He can't help but think that this has something to do with that other case from his long ago high school days.
This is a lengthy book with many characters. Rose's books generally introduce a new character and will carry them forward to the next book so you now have a whole cast of characters to keep track of. Everyone if off working on the case and doing something different. These books are all stand alone however, I would suggest listening to these books in order so you will understand characters and relationships.
I have read or listened to everything by Karen Rose and love her writing style. Her books are classified as romantic mysteries. I am not particularly interested in romance and will fast forward through the love scenes, these take up maybe 1% of the book overall and you are left with an outstanding mystery.
Marguerite Gavin does an excellent job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Good book, good narrator

Lots of suspense, lots of background, and (very important) good narrator. The only complaint I would have is language. I'm not a prude. I've been known to have a potty mouth. But I think Karen Rose, and this is unusual for her, used foul language by every character in the book...I'd call it gratuitous cursing...when it added nothing. Even the women. It's not necessary that it be so constant.

Just Okay

This book was just okay. I felt that it was too long and drawn out but it was still a good story.
