Publisher's Summary

Eden faces a final reckoning when the cult's past victims hunt them down in this explosive, high-stakes thriller in the Sacramento series from New York Times best-selling author Karen Rose.

For decades, Eden has remained hidden in the remote wilds of the Pacific Northwest, “Pastor” keeping his cult's followers in thrall for his personal profit and sexual pleasures. But the Founding Elders are splintering, and Pastor's surrogate son, DJ, is scheming to make it all his own. 

When two of Eden's newest members send out a cry for help, it reaches FBI Special Agent Tom Hunter, whose friend and fellow FBI Special Agent Gideon Reynolds and his sister, Mercy, are themselves escapees of the Eden cult, targeted by the Founding Elders who want them silenced forever. The three have vowed to find the cult and bring it down, and now, they finally have a solid lead.

Neutralizing Eden’s threat will save captive members and ensure Tom’s new friends can live without fear. But when his best friend, ex-Army combat medic Liza Barkley, joins the case, it puts her life - and their blossoming love - in danger. With everything they hold dear in the balance, Tom and Liza, together with Gideon and Mercy, must end Eden once and for all.

Critic Reviews

"Rose sends out her Sacramento trilogy (after Say No More) with an irresistible, heart-pounding thrill ride.... The twisty plot will keep readers on the edges of their seats as they’re led through a dizzying maze of dangerous situations and even more dangerous villains. Rose has a gift for making readers care deeply about her characters, and she certainly doesn’t disappoint here; Tom and Liza will win readers’ hearts and Hayley steals every scene she’s in. This is a knockout.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

“Chock-full of twists and scares, this is spine-chilling and heart-satisfying romantic suspense.” (BookPage

Breaks my heart to give it 2 stars.

Great story. I was waiting for this book for over a year. And I've been waiting for Tom's story forever. A great conclusion to the Eden story. I love the complexity of Ms Rose's books.
Unfortunately the narrator is the worst I've ever listened to. He completely detracts from a truly great story. He doesn't have the range of voices needed for complex characters. Unless he's doing truly awful accents, the male characters all sound the same. Even teenage females sound like elderly whiny women. It's my fondest hope that the publisher will re-release the series with a more competent narrator and then I can give the book the score it deserves.

couldn't get past the narrator

I love Karen rose and this story may be ok, but the narrator is so bad and the book is so long it is difficult to listen to and it just drags on. I think I'll be returning it. at this point I don't think I can make it to the end! I really hope they don't use the same narrator in the next book in this series!!!

Horrible Narrator

Need a new Narrator

This audible was disappointing. The narrator practically runs through it. Not good! Story is great!

Ridiculous Dialog

The author adds really annoying and unnecessary dialog. it distracts from the story. It trys too hard to be sacrumy cute vs just telling a good mystery. I'm glad I know how it ends but I wanted to stop it MANY times because of all the goofy details. it's a decent story but not great overall

Great storyline, disappointed in some pieces

I loved all 3 books. The story anyway. I was so disappointed in how the author made the cops and FBI agents kind of terrible at their jobs. But it did make the story keep going. Great performance in narrating. At the first book "say your sorry", I was so creeped out by the bad guy that I almost stopped listening. My daughter pointed out that he was after all the bad guy. After that it was great to hear how creepy he was. So excellent job to the narrator.

Anticlimactic and boring

Sorry to say that the last book in the series is so boring.

It was a struggle to finish and the Tom and Liza relationship didn't hold
my interest at all. it would have been better to wrap up the series in book 2

It’s Okay

I said I wouldn’t buy this one, but hit a dry spell for audiobooks, so bought it anyway. Same thoughts as last time:

Storyline, same as every KR book ever. I was trying to remember if there was ever one book where the female lead DOESN’T get kidnapped by the killer? LOL. I am no writer, so who am I to judge, right? Mostly enjoyed, but I confess I skipped ahead after about the fourth time Tom proved too dumb to live and said the wrong thing or friend-zoned Liza. Would have like more romance/ time together in this one.

Narration not bad but not my favorite.
