Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of Every Dark Corner returns to Baltimore, where a father-daughter reunion puts innocent victims in the sights of a stone-cold killer.

Baltimore PI Clay Maynard routinely locates missing children for clients, but his own daughter - stolen by his ex-wife - has eluded him for years. Until she turns up right under his nose....

Since she was a child, Taylor Dawson believed the lie her mother told her - that her father was a monster. But now she has a chance to get to know the real Clay while doing real work as an equine therapist, which includes helping two girls whose mother was brutally murdered. She might even find something deeper with her boss' handsome son, Ford Elkhart, who is dealing with his own demons. But just as Taylor feels her life opening up to new family, work, and friends, a danger lurks in the darkness - one that will show Taylor the face of true evil.

    "Monsters are Karen's specialty!"
    If you could sum up Monster in the Closet in three words, what would they be?

    Gripping, Suspenseful and Satisfying


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Monster in the Closet?

    I didn't meet my biological mother until I was 23, so the scene when Taylor meets her biological father for the first time was moving and memorable for me.


    Have you listened to any of Marguerite Gavin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I've listened to Marguerite before. She's not my favorite, but she consistently does a good job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    While I didn't have an extreme reaction, I did feel a plethora of emotions throughout the listen.

    "Sweet? Hmmm..Not the usual KR"

    I just finished this book and although I really enjoyed many aspects of the book - I must say I would never have thought it a Karen Rose book except for the characters featured from past books and the past storyline. Very little true suspense. While I enjoyed Ford getting his story, I didn't connect well...he and Taylor came across as very young. Not ready for a true "grown up" relationship to me. Seemed very college romance. Not a bad listen, just not in the neighborhood of the usual depth of plot and suspense we usually get in a Karen Rose book - in my opinion. All in all, a bit crowded with lots and lots of characters, too much adult to child kinda vibe in most of those connections. And just not intricate enough of a plot to hold your attention.

    "No story line, choppy, and boring"

    The story line is broken and hard to follow, overly descriptive and unfortunately boring. Could not finish it was so bad.

    "Another great suspense from Karen Rose...."

    This book is part of the Baltimore series, there is also a Cincinnati, a Philadelphia and a Minneapolis series and sometimes characters are shared. If you've never heard anything by Karen Rose you can still start here. Each of her books can be read as a stand alone because she does give some basic background on each character. It's amazing how she keeps track of ALL of her characters, there are many that jump from one storyline to another but each new book picks up with a new character getting involved with an existing one.
    This book has Clay Maynard reuniting with his daughter. In previous books he's been searching for her, she is now 23 years old. There's drama, suspense, murder and as always for this author at least one or two graphic love scenes. I usually fast forward (sorry Ms. Rose) but I love her mystery writing, I am not big on romance!
    Anyway this is an excellent book.
    Marguerite Gavin does a great job narrating.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
    If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
    Thank You.
