Publisher's Summary

Introducing the first audiobook in the new pulse-pounding Sacramento series from New York Times best-selling author Karen Rose.

There is a serial killer on the loose preying on vulnerable women. The only identifiable mark the killer leaves are letters - sometimes one, sometimes two - all carved into the torsos of his victims. Together, they spell “Sydney”. 

When he grabs Daisy Dawson, he believes he has found his next victim. But despite her small stature, she fights back with an expertise that quickly frees her. Before fleeing the scene, Daisy also manages to grab what proves to be crucial evidence: a necklace from around the killer’s neck. 

The necklace is more than a trivial item - it is a link to a cold case Special Agent Gideon Reynolds has been tracking for 17 years. With Daisy’s help, Gideon finally has the opportunity to get closer to the truth than ever before. 

But they might not get the chance, as the serial killer has a new target: Gideon and Daisy.

Critic Reviews

“Fans of Lisa Gardner and J.D. Robb will enjoy this outing and be on pins and needles waiting for the next installments.” (Publishers Weekly)

"Complex, thrilling, and impossible to put down... An engrossing and exciting start to a new series, and one that busts genre stereotypes along the way." (BookPage Top Pick) 

"Chilling and remarkably complex, this is a thriller that, for all its length, will keep minds sharp and nightlights burning. An excellent series start." (Library Journal)

"Rose’s Say You’re Sorry delivers on the promise of a pedal-to-the-metal thriller with plenty of developed characters and converging mysteries...to call this book a page turner is an understatement." (USA Today)

HOLY SH*T!!!! One of the best from Karen Rose!

This new series by Karen Rose is absolutely fantastic! There is a slight connection to her Baltimore series. I like that this book has all new and fresh characters. For anyone who has never read anything by Karen Rose this is a great place to start. Although the book is 24 hours she completely fills the time with a totally worthwhile listen. The characters are fleshed out to the point that they are so familiar to you they could be your next door neighbor! There are no lulls or fillers to take up time.
The publisher's summary gives gives a very scant synopsis of about the first 15 minutes of this book. To make this brief I will not spell out the entire story. There are so many layers I wouldn't know where to begin. This book is an extravaganza in the mystery/thriller/suspense genre. It touches on religious cults, torture, pedophilia, a completely warped serial killer holding an unfortunate victim that I found myself rooting for and maybe 15 minutes of romance. I personally don't go for romance as a preferred genre and generally fast forward through these scenes.
This is a fast paced story with lots of action and even more suspense!
Joel Froomkin does a great job narrating.
Very HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Am I the only one??

Who doesn't care for this narrator at all? I don't think I can even get through 1/4 of this book.

Another amazing book

Karen Rose is a master at her craft! I love how detailed her books are. I especially loved this one because it has a character show up from the first book I ever read of hers. I’m hoping he will finally get as HEA!!
I’m a big fan of the narrator Joel (Leslie) Froomkin. His voice range is amazing. He brings so much life to the books he narrates!

Worst narrative ever!

The narrator sounds like this was his 1st job. Each character sounds like a man with a cold. It made it hard to listen to and hard to follow the story.

Great Story, Terrible Narration

The story itself is one of Karen Rose’s best, but the narration made it really difficult to listen to. I stopped listening halfway through and borrowed the book from a friend to finish.
