For years, defense attorney Thomas Thorne has secretly adored Gwyn Weaver, his friend and business partner, but for many reasons has hesitated to make a move. Now he's begun quietly to warn off her potential suitors. When Gwyn heads to his house to confront him, she finds him passed out in bed with a dead woman and sheets covered in blood. It quickly becomes clear that he's being set up. As the details unfold, Thomas learns that someone is using secrets from his past to bring him down and is willing to hurt, kill, or torture anyone to do it. Myriad interconnecting plot threads, a tight time frame (often minute-by-minute), fully realized characters, and multiple viewpoints draw readers deep into a complex story that becomes more intricate and terrifying with the turn of each page.
VERDICT With flair and precision, Rose delivers another taut, vividly detailed, and violent thriller that will keep readers enthralled. The core story stands on its own, but owing to the ongoing character relationships, readers may benefit from experiencing the series in order. Rose (Edge of Darkness) lives in Florida.
