Review

"With a journalist's eye for the telling details of life, Caitlin Rother is a keen architect of the most important part of storytelling: character."--Michael Connelly

"A strong debut from a perceptive and unflinching writer. Detailed and tightly focused."--Jefferson Parker

Product Description

Tired of working undercover narcotics, police detective Ken Goode wants a transfer to homicide. After the Camus-reading surfer finds the body of a beautiful woman in an alley, he is assigned to head a team of relief detectives with the hopes of proving he is homicide-worthy. As Goode explores the underbelly of the affluent coastal enclave of La Jolla, California, and its hipster neighbor, Pacific Beach, he clashes with the patrons and employees of a neighborhood bar: real estate agents and beauty school students who have possible ties to an escort service and a drug ring – and keep turning up dead. The untimely disappearance of Goode’s sister proves a worrisome distraction as he chases suspects and a dogged cub reporter chases him. In this intricately-layered plot, Rother’s characters use substances or other people to try to fill the empty spaces within themselves, with addictions ranging from sex, alcohol, cocaine and cigarettes to Goode’s own, caffeine and damaged women.

Format: Paperback
"Naked Addiction" is a gripping, fast-paced thriller that begins when an undercover narcotics detective discovers the body of a young woman hidden among trashcans in an alley. In an investigation that has Ken Goode proving his skill in uncovering clues to the murder that has ties to a beauty school, escort service and an narcotics ring, he's hounded by a cub report looking for a sensational scoop. When Goode's sister is linked to one of the suspects and she suddenly disappears, his tension mounts as the case takes a sinister turn with the discovery of two more corpses.

The author sets the stage for an intoxicating plot in La Jolla, California with its affluent community, and sinister underbelly. Threads of the plot follow not only the investigation of the murder but also the friends, lover and family impacted by it. With every twist and turn as new victims and crimes are exposed tension and suspense are built into a roller coaster ride that never stops until the killer's identity is exposed. With skillful dexterity the author has woven a plot that not only deals with broken people who use sex, alcohol, drugs and cigarettes to fill their emptiness, but also a hero who's addicted to caffeine and troubled women. In a plot that's well-written and captivating from beginning to end, even the climax holds a shocking surprise.

Cleverly Caitlin Rother fleshs out the personalities of complex and realistic characters that are compelling with all their flaws and faults. Ken Goode a detective who wants to transfer from narcotics to homicide is intense and caring, with a eye for detail and a strong gut instinct. Haunted by a bad marriage and a weakness for damaged women, he becomes fixated on the murder victim through her journal entries.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! A real page turner!! Dec 21 2016
By Vicky Carruth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My main reading genre is True Crime so it sometimes takes me a little longer to get in to other genres..but that wasn't the case with Naked Addiction!! The author, Caitlin Rother is an excellent True Crime author so I thought I would give this book a try! I was NOT disappointed! I liked the characters and the plot kept me guessing pretty much up to the end!
Another thing that I liked and don't see too often was at the end of the book there is a section titled "BOOK CLUB DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOR NAKED ADDICTION" that were pretty thought provoking.

5.0 out of 5 stars I SEE A MAJOR MOVIE COME OUT OF THIS! April 29 2015
By SueAnn Sipin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is my second Review to Amazon on Caitlin's book.
Ms. Rother has a number one hit on her hands and I don't know how she can beat this one, but I know with her skills so will successed.
The beginning of the book takes you thru getting to know the charters and a hint of about where the will be found.... No I'm not going to be a "spoiler" and let you know how they come about or where they might fit in. BUT, I will let you know, WOW, they are a group of charters who I would of not thought of being in a book like this. Some people would think that the story is slow to take off. I'm hear to tell you, before the second chapter is started you better make sure you have done everything, and I'm serious about everything done before you start reading. It's like a sky rocket going off, it's also like a spine creeping thriller that takes you on twist & turns that you wouldn't even think could and would happen. With Caitlin's background, I never new she could of wrote this story. It goes to show you that the farther you dig into your soul, the more you can come up with.
I can't tell you anything more except that her description of her thoughts on her book, just scratch the surface of what she is capable of delivering!!!! WAY TO GO CAITLIN, I AM SO GLAD I LISTENED TO YOUR DESCRIPTION OF YOUR BOOK AND THE WILDBLUE PRESS TEAM! Loved every minute of it, and wanting more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Real exposure to the silent killer of addiction Oct. 21 2016
By P. Britt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I liked the twists and turns in this books. Detective Goode's character was well developed-family of origin issues, the way he escapes his past, his Mommy issues, can't find his sister. A very cause and effect book for the last 40 years of excess in the US. I could totally relate to all characters in the book. Nicely done;)

4.0 out of 5 stars A Goode and Entertaining Read April 14 2015
By Gary Townsend - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Rother plots a good story that has a steady pace and enough suspense to keep the reader's attention. My one major critique is that while Goode, the main character, was certainly developed, he didn't quite come off the page. Rother is very good at characterization such that it is clear to the reader that Goode is determined and confident, but with enough doubt to cause him some missteps, yet there is just a little something missing, but I'm not sure I can quite identify what it is. Still, a Goode and entertaining read and well worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars By Lorie Matteson Feb. 4 2015
By Jeb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I find it difficult to cross genre boundaries. That is especially true regarding my favorite true crime authors. It seems that I just expect one genre, and anything else disappoints. I must say that Caitlin Rother's Naked Addiction is the exception to the rule. This book is thought provoking, interesting, and worthy of your time. I read it some time ago and thoroughly enjoyed it.
