Sue Conway has her reasons for kidnapping Alec. After 10 years in prison, she is starting her retribution on the people she feels put her there. The kidnapping of Alec is just the beginning of a chain of events that was so horrifying and creepy, I had to put the book down at times. Karen Rose writes evil so well, you feel like you're in Sue's head w/ her.

Both have their own dark secrets which they are trying to get past. Eventually they have to team up, along with characters that KR has introduced in previous books (Caroline and Max, Mia and Abe) along with a new character (or two) that is sure to have his own story somewhere down the line, to find Alec before he is killed.
Do not miss this book! It is a true winner. It will be along wait before her next book is out.

Ethan Buchanan is looking for the woman that kidnapped his godson. He knows that he and his partner Clay should call in the police for help, but they have been warned against this. Now it's a race against the clock to find Alec before he becomes part of the body count behind the moster Sue. Just when he must have his entire focus on Alec, he meets Dana. She calms him in ways he never thought possible. He is drawn to her and he won't let her get away. What will happen though when he finds out she has been unwittingly harboring the lady that has taken Alec?
This was a chilling read. Ms. Rose has created a villian that will make the reader shudder. At the same time there are so many twists and turns you'll be sitting on the edge of your chair waiting for the other shoe to drop! Needless to say this was fast paced read and one that was highly entertaining! The romance between Ethan and Dana was realistic and...romantic. We meet up again with Caro and Max ("Dont' Tell) and Detective Abe Reagan (I'm Watching You") in this action packed read. If you are a fan of romantic suspense Ms. Rose is the author for you!

When she is injured while trying to stop a purse napping at a local bus station, Dana meets handsome security consultant Ethan Buchanan, unaware that Ethan is in Chicago hot on the trail of killer Sue and searching for his deaf godson. Alec. Neither knows what their real motivations are, just that they are extremely attracted to each other. As Dana's suspicions about Jane grow, so does Jane's body count.
Fraught with lots of tension, suspense, and plenty of red herrings to keep you guessing at Sue's motives, Karen Rose's storytelling just keeps getting better with each book, culminating into a tense showdown. She has a way with weaving characters from previous novels into her stories without making their appearances feel forced like so many other authors. Don't miss this one!
