Publisher's Summary

Five teenage girls have been murdered. One survived, and only she can reveal the secrets of a disturbing ring of people who kidnap and sell teenage girls on the black market. But those responsible for the crimes will do whatever it takes to maintain her silence.

Susannah Vartanian and Luke Papadopoulos have both sworn to stop the murderers for their own reasons. Susannah suffers from a mysterious past that is connected to the sinister black market. Luke is an investigative agent and a computer expert who refuses to let another child predator get away.

Susannah and Luke are instantly attracted to each other, but their troubled pasts prevent them from immediately acting upon their feelings. The case will lead them to the shady realm of Internet chat rooms, where anyone can mask their identity. As Susannah and Luke draw closer to the criminals, they discover a chain of deception so intricate they don't know who to trust. Susannah and Luke find comfort in one another's arms, but the killers are ruthless and determined, and will take extreme measures to insure their anonymity and keep their business intact.

Critic Reviews

"Best-seller Rose concludes her thriller trilogy that began with Scream for Me and Die for Me with a bang....Rose juggles a large cast, a huge body count and a complex plot with terrifying ease. The sweet romance between Luke and Susannah provides welcome relief from the many scenes of brutality." ( Publishers Weekly)

No, Just Kill Me Instead

I only finished this book because I purchased it in a 3 books for 2 credits promotion, and since this was the third book I chose, I wanted my $ worth, and well.... I hate to be a quitter.
We all know, you often get what you pay for.
As others have mentioned, this reader is beyond horrible, her male voices are so funny sounding that it is difficult to focus on the poorly developed story line.
The "sexy, strong, romantic" leading man sounds just like Granny Clampett from the Beverly Hillbillies. This is something I just could not get used to.
In addition, this storyline was weak like the characters, which were far too many in number to bother tracking.
This book was beyond horrible! Wait.... can I give it a 0 star rating instead?

Reader

The triology was very good but Gilbert does a poor job on the voices. Makes listening very difficult

Kill fo Me

I read the first two books in this series and wished that I had read this one instead of listening to it. There were too many characters to keep up with on tape,especially since the reader did such a poor job with the voices. Her Southern dialect was horrible.

SCREAM FOR ME - PART TWO

I PURCHASED THIS BASED ON PREVIOUS REVIEWS. WHEN I BEGAN TO LISTEN TO IT I FELT LIKE I HAD NOT DOWNLOADED THE BEGINING OF THE BOOK. THIS BOOK IS THE 3RD IN A SERIES. TO FULLY UNDERSTAND AND ENJOY THE STORYLINE YOU MUST READ THE 2CD BOOK IN THE SERIES "SCREAM FOR ME". THIS BOOK SHOULD BE TITLED "SCREAM FOR ME THE CONCLUSION". AFTER DOWNLOADING THIS AND FEELING CONFUSED. I WENT BACK AND READ THE DESCRIPTION AND REVIEWS AGAIN. I THEN PURCHASED "SCREAM" AND LISTENED TO IT FIRST, THEN LISTENED TO THIS BOOK. IT MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. I WOULD NOT HAVE UNDERSTOOD "KILL FOR ME" AND WOULD HAVE FELT LIKE THE STORY WAS INCOMPLETE IN THE "SCREAM FOR ME" BOOK IF I HADN'T READ BOTH BOOKS. THEY ARE 2 PARTS OF THE SAME PLOT. THESE 2 BOOKS SHOULD BE READ BACK TO BACK. IF YOU WANT TO GET REALLY INVESTED READ THE 1ST BOOK. THIS WAS A GOOD STORY, A LITTLE TOO VIOLENT AND CONVOLUTED AT TIMES BUT OVERALL WORTH THE 2 CREDITS (BOTH BOOKS), FOR A 30 HOUR THRILLER . I WOULD GIVE IT A 3.75

Narration is lacking...

The story itself is entertaining, though sometimes predictible. I found myself struggling to get involved with the characters because of the narration. I couldn't tell the male charactors apart - and they sounded like little old ladies with a poor southern accent. Why the narrator didn't make an attempt to add some baritone to the effort is puzzling. It took effort to finish the book, but I needed to know the end.

This book really deserved a better narrator!

This is the third and final book in the Daniel Vartanian series and had the best storyline of the three. However, Ms. Gilbert's portrayal of Luke Popadopolous (the big strong hero with a dark side) made him sound like a whiny chipmunk. There are a few female narrators who struggle with male voices but this is the worst I've ever heard. It made me angry every time Luke spoke because it took me completely out of the story. Thank God I'm finished with it and can move on to the next book in the main series.

I looked to see if I'll have to listen to the same narrator again but she doesn't show on any of the rest of the 22-book series. However they are all female narrators so I hope they can handle the male characters with more skill than Ms. Gilbert. I generally enjoy the books with 2 narrators (male and female) as it allows me to stay in the story more easily.

Great Book Awful Narration

This would be an amazing book if the narrator didn’t make Luke (the hero who’s supposed to be a big guy with quite the temper) sound like a mousey/nasally weakling. 😞

I couldn't be happier about a story

such a good story. I love the characters and how Karen rose weaves their stories and pasts together so you completely understand their motives. The l
story of the the two main characters was so touching I found myself crying at times, laughing at others. I THROUGHLY enjoyed this book.
