Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Karen Rose delivers the kind of high-wire suspense that keeps you riveted.” Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author, praise for the author
“Intense, complex, and unforgettable.” James Patterson on Did You Miss Me?
“Rose’s latest is centered on a tough, wounded detective who is in constant danger and fighting for her life. An intriguing, intricate plot, good pacing, strong suspense, cleverly crafted villains, along with the vulnerable tough heroes make up this complex tale, and are all handled with a deftness of skill. Rose delivers big once again with this tension-thick thriller.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)

Not So Tough After All

I’ve heard about how great Karen Rose books are, and like with most hyped media, was left flat. At a whopping twenty hours of runtime, this cop romance could have easily been cut to half the length. So much of the writing is redundant and repetitive, like when she recaps what’s happened literally ten words after the previous scene has completed. She tends to write down to her audience, or at the very least, treat them as if they all have exceptionally short memories.

My biggest issue with the book is that Rose takes her seemingly strong heroine and reduces her into a weak, simpering, hysterical, and irrational damsel in distress. Only the hunky PI can save her and her daughter. The bar for bestselling author is set exceptionally low. The only redeeming factor of this book is Marguerite Gavin’s terrific narration.
