Publisher's Summary

The fourth book in Karen Rose's nail-biting Cincinnati Series revisits your favourite characters battling crime in the city's dark underbelly. Fans of Tess Gerritsen, James Patterson and Karin Slaughter will not be able to tear themselves away from this explosive thriller.

Homicide detective Adam Kimble is no stranger to battling demons. But Meredith Fallon is a different kind of weakness: one that could actually be good for him, if only he would let himself depend on her. Meredith has loved Adam for a year, and seeing how hard he's worked to deal with his PTSD makes her feelings only stronger, but she respects his needs. Her work keeps her busy anyway: she counsels sexually abused women like Mallory Martin to help them reintegrate into the world.

But someone doesn't want Meredith helping women like Mallory, and Meredith finds herself the target of a very determined killer. Adam would risk anything for Meredith, but they'll soon find out the killer is just a little too close to home....

My new favourite Author

I have become a big fan of Karen Rose and this book confirmed it. This story has many twists and surprises all built over what is a very depressing situation . For me the characters become real and I often rewind so I can hear it again.

I found the storyline to be complicated and believable, the human emotion is powerful and I found myself relating to it often. It is always nice to end on a positive and happy note.

I told my self that after book 3 I would revert to another author for at least one book but when the time came I opted for book 4 and very glad that I did. The recommendation can't come any higher than that.

If you want a good listen with powerful characters then this book, in fact the entire series, is for you. Do yourself a favour and have a listen. Enjoy!

Twist & Turn

Fabulous story with plenty of action, Karen has the fabulous knack of having every scenario full of suspense and surprises with each one having it’s own ending, all questions answered. Loved it.

Excellent series

The latest in the Cincinnati series is another gripping story with twists. I like the characters who fill each book yet a new set take the lead in the following book. This one focuses on Adam, his love interest being Meredith. Each has their own story, plus the main theme, all of which intertwine intriguingly. Karen Rose has another success here.

A long story

I found this book interminable and felt that it could have been written in a quarter of the pages.....it then would have been faster moving and perhaps gripping at times.

Karen Rose continues to deliver

This book is number 4 in the Cincinnati series. All the favourite characters make an appearance with Meredith and Adam taking centre stage.

Murder, love, friendships and compassion are all strong themes.

captivating

Really enjoyed this particular book. The plot was twisted enough and kept me on the edge all the time. The narrator was very expressive that made me understand the characters feelings. Couldn't wait to listen to the end
