The New York Times best-selling author of Closer than You Think returns with a breathtaking new novel of suspense that crosses the line between danger and desire and justice and revenge.Homicide detective Scarlett Bishop has seen enough bad guys slip through the cracks and too many innocent victims go unavenged to know that good doesn't always prevail. So far she's been able to lock away her rage and her vigilante fantasies. That lock is about to break.Former army ranger Marcus O'Bannion is a fierce champion of victims' rights. His secret past gives him good reason. He believes he's seen the depths of human depravity, but then his investigation into the murder of a young girl who once asked for his help lures him and Scarlett down a dark, dark road - and straight into the crosshairs of a dangerous, powerful underground ring that deals in human trade. To stop them Scarlett and Marcus have to be just as cunning and just as ruthless. But first they have to make it out alive.©2016 Karen Hafer (P)2015 Blackstone Audio, Inc.
Karen Rose has quickly risen to be one of my absolute all-time, go-to, favorite authors! I have never read a book of hers that has left me disappointed or wanting more. Actually, quite the opposite happens, and I finish her books feeling complete but anxious for the next, newest release!
I cannot think of enough good things to say about Karen Rose's books, especially Alone in the Dark. She has a special way of taking characters and a story, and making the reader feel as if he or she is directly involved in the story, waiting with abated breath for the end result, because nine times out of ten, the conclusion of the book isn't anything that you had already previously guessed! This book will leave you breathless and shocked, trying to pick your jaw up off the floor!
I can never get over how impossibly perfect Rose's hero and heroine's always end up being! You'd think after 17 books in a series, that characters would start to become flawed, but I must say Karen Rose's characters are like a fine wine, they just get better with time! I admire such strong female characters such as Scarlett Bishop and thoroughly enjoy getting to know them through the stories that Rose writes.
I really enjoy listening to Hillary Huber as a narrator, and love that Karen Rose and her publishing team picks such solid, dependable narrators. There is nothing boring about Huber's narration skills, as she fully takes you through the whole experience of Rose's books with such exquisite grace!
Overall, Alone in the Dark is just like it sounds, a thrilling, suspenseful romantic suspense that you can't go wrong picking up! I find myself getting easily distracted from books, but even for a book that is 30+ hours long, I was able to continually listen without interruption with ease! I can't wait to continue with this series and see where Karen Rose will take us next!
