From the Publisher
Praise for the novels of Karen Rose:  

“Intense, complex, and unforgettable.”—James Patterson

“Karen Rose writes hold-your-breath suspense.” —Karen Robards

Kirkus Reviews
The latest from Rose (No One Left to Tell, 2012, etc.) opens with a prologue in which we find a kidnap victim waking up to his dire situation, and within the first few pages, we know not only whodunit, but also why. The suspense really begins when we meet the victim's mother, Daphne Montgomery, the prosecutor in a high-profile murder case. Questions are raised about this intrepid woman's past, and the continuing revelations of her traumatic story grip the reader for the length of the book. She remembers happiness for the first eight years of her life, but then it all came tumbling down when she was abducted by a stranger who was not actually a stranger. This abduction, her escape and the continuing developments comprise a complex journey, and along the way, we glimpse the traumas in the lives of many of the other characters: the losses, the abuses, the angers, resentments and sheer pain that motivate some people to acts of vengeance, others to acts of love. Interspersed with scenes of horror and cruelty, sometimes graphic, sometimes implied, are scenes of love and tenderness. The book is filled with a multitude of stories, and the author handles the interconnected segments with skill. The loving and wise will find relief and redemption, the loving but angry will move from one tragedy to another. In the end, Daphne is able to use what she has learned to influence a few characters in a positive way.
