My Rating: ✮✮✮✮✮

Years ago, a young woman was beaten and raped while onlookers did nothing. Now those witnesses are becoming victims themselves.

Baltimore Homicide Detective J. D. Fitzpatrick has seen a lot of horrific violence, both as a cop and during his deployment in Afghanistan, but nothing like the trail of tortured bodies that are turning up throughout the city. He's up against a brutal killer with a very personal vendetta, and now J. D. is beginning to suspect that his medical examiner may be shielding some crucial evidence linked to the case.

Assigned to the murder victims, forensic pathologist Dr. Lucy Trask is intrigued by J. D.'s compassion, but she isn't about to mix work with pleasure. Not while there's a ruthless killer on the loose. And definitely not while she's keeping a dark secret that could connect her to these vicious killings--and put her next on the hit list.

This is the first book in a new series from acclaimed romantic suspense author -- Karen Rose, author of Scream for Me, Die for Me, Kill for Me, and Silent Scream.

My Review:
Karen Rose has very quickly come to be one of my favorite author's. I've both read and listened to her books and have fallen in love with each format. I listened to You Belong to Me and think that Marquerite Gavin does a phenomenal job of reading Karen Rose's books! As with every other Rose book that I've read, this book just left me dying to start the next one!

I inadvertently read You Belong to Me and No One Left to Tell out of order, but it wasn't too big of a deal! I was still able to follow both books closely without much confusion.

The characters of this book are awesome! I love Lucy and her strong independent personality and JD and Stevie are the team to beat!! Rose does a wonderful job of intertwining the lives of all of her characters together, but still being able to keep them separate!

I think that Rose has found the delicate balance needed for a successful romantic suspense novel. She sure does know how to steam up a room though! But yet, even though she can steam up a room, she doesn't let it overpower the mystery at hand! Rose is spectacular at writing an edge-of-your seat suspense novel, that keeps you guessing at every turn.

I do think that her stories can be lengthy at times, however, even though lengthy, the story does not drag on to the point that it's beat up. Rose makes it work, and work well it does!

Overall, I loved this book, and can't wait to get through all of the next book in this (well both) series...Did You Miss Me? I'm sure it'll be just as great as every other book I've read by Karen Rose!
