OrangeReviewStarWhen child psychologist Meredith Fallon narrowly misses being killed in an assassination attempt, her suspicions zero in on the high-profile father of one of her patients. But that is just the tip of the iceberg, and when the bodies start piling up and the Cincinnati crew ramp it up, it seems that someone desperately wants Meredith dead. Meanwhile, Det. Adam Kimble will stop at nothing to keep her safe—and have her back in his arms. A hero who's been to the bottom and is struggling to keep his demons at bay and a compassionate heroine reclaim the love they almost lost and help take down a few bad guys along the way. The familiar setting and recurring characters quickly ground readers in this violent, realistic story that becomes more complex by the minute and keeps the action swift and intense with scenes told from multiple viewpoints, including the crafty villain's.
VERDICT Never one to shy away from gut-wrenching topics, Rose delves into the gruesome horrors of crimes against children, including teen prostitution, the monsters who perpetuate and profit from it, and the devastating effects on those who bring them to justice. Another bone-chiller that will keep the night-lights burning. Rose (Monster in the Closet) lives in Florida.
