Overview

Evie Wilson was the victim of the villain in DON'T TELL, an assault which resulted in paralysis on one side of her face. After her injury, Evie retreated into the virtual realm, seeking refuge from the public eye by interacting with online friends. Now, with the help of a surgeon, Evie's face is restored and she is ready to return to the real world. However, she remains connected to the Internet for her graduate thesis on using the virtual world as therapy to improve self-esteem. She has become an online shopkeeper who sells faces and bodies to users interested in building a new avatar on a website called "Shadowland." In her new role, Evie maintains "surveillance" over her test subjects to ensure they don't become too caught up in the intoxicating virtual realm.

Meanwhile, homicide detective Noah Webster has been investigating a string of suspicious suicides that he believes are connected murders. Noah's investigation leads him to Evie when one of her online test subjects is found dead of apparent suicide, but Evie believes otherwise.

Evie is shocked to find herself drawn to someone for the first time in many years and she's reluctant to trust Noah. However, he's the only one who believes her story about the suspicious death of her test subject, and he soon discovers that many of the apparent suicides in his case had avatars in "Shadowland."

As murder victims connected to the website begin to appear more frequently, Noah asks Evie to be his virtual guide in the investigation. However, they don't realize that the killer is closer than they think—and that he holds a special grudge against Evie.

Editorial Reviews

Lorenzo Carcaterra
"Rose paints her characters with a flesh and blood brush, bringing life to their every word and gesture. SCREAM FOR ME loudly announces that there could well be a new thriller sheriff in town."
Allison Brennan
"SCREAM FOR ME has everything a great suspense novel should have: cold chills, hot thrills, and characters that come alive."
James Patterson
"From the first rousing chapter to the last, SCREAM FOR ME is intense, complex, and unforgettable."
Publishers Weekly
Virtual reality meets bloody reality in bestseller Rose's spine-tingling 10th thriller, which introduces the Minneapolis PD's “Hat Squad,” whose members earn snappy fedoras for successfully fighting crime. Almost six years have passed since Eve Wilson, a former runaway introduced in Rose's debut, Don't Tell (2003), moved from Chicago to the Twin Cities after a vicious assault. Plastic surgery has improved her looks, and she's begun researching a Web role-playing game, “Shadowland,” and how it can be used to build self-esteem. Eve also connects with a homicide detective investigating the Red Dress Killer, who finds some victims through Shadowland. Samantha Altman is the killer's first victim, but she's not identified until the second, Martha Brisbane, is found. When Eve learns Martha was a fellow research participant, she becomes a Hat Squad confidential informant. Rose keeps the action popping as the psycho claims more lives, hoping to add Eve to his list. (Aug.)
Library Journal
RITA Award winner Rose is back with another blockbuster romantic suspense novel in which she considers what happens when the real world and the virtual world violently collide. Plucky Eve Wilson, one of Rose's favorite victims (see Don't Tell and Nothing To Fear) has already been kidnapped twice, stabbed, and almost killed multiple times. It might be hard for some authors to devise new calamities, but Rose does a wonderful job of making Eve's current predicament an example of her growth and recovery since we last saw her. VERDICT It is not necessary to read the previous novels to enjoy this one, and fans of Rose's serial killer stories will be thrilled that Rose gives them all the tension; grisly, tortured minds; complex, interlocking plotlines; and nonstop action that are hallmarks of all her books. Highly recommended for all adult readers not offended by violence or some explicit sexual content. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 4/15/09.]—Crystal Renfro, Georgia Inst. of Technology, Atlanta

    SUSPENSE + ROMANCE = COMPELLING READING

    Even your shivers will have goose bumps when reading this frightening tale of a far too clever psycho who takes pleasure in killing. Not just killing, mind you, but torturing his victims first by making them endure their worst possible fear, whether it be fire, snakes or being buried alive. The question of how he has this information, who he is, and why he is doing it will keep readers glued (yes, he does glue his victims' eyes open) to I Can See You.

    Author Rose brings back Eve Wilson who was mercilessly attacked and left for dead in the author's debut thriller (Don't Tell, 2003). Not only was she attacked but she was cut so severely that her face needed extensive surgical restoration and one hand was rendered almost useless. Nonetheless, what she suffered then is only prelude to what may befall her now.

    Eve has gone to Minneapolis where she's found work as a bartender at a hangout for police. It was there that she first saw Noah Webster and was immediately attracted to him, but pushed this thought from her mind as she believed any relationship was forever out of the question for her. Noah is also attracted but still not fully recovered from the loss of his wife and child, and the years he spent in an alcoholic haze trying to forget. Two lost souls.

    Eve is also a grad student working on a degree in abnormal psychology; the topic of her paper is "the pathology of serial killers." After spending years in the virtual world as she hid from the real world she wants to learn how to help those who have become addicted to role playing online at a site called Shadowland. There lonely people can choose faces, , play at gambling or dancing, even agree to meet someone they meet in the real world. A dangerous idea.

    Rose loses no time in reeling readers in with an opening description of a murder so skillful, so carefully planned, so sadistic that it startles. Thus, we're introduced to the mysterious killer who not only sees all but knows all, and wants to make public fools of the police. His modus operandi is always the same, the women apparently die by hanging with a stool kicked over, their shoes positioned on the floor. He revels in their terror: "He learned long ago that their fear was far better than any drug, sending his orgasm into the stratosphere." Murder, you see, is a compunction with him; he not only derives pleasure from it but also sexual relief.

    Noah is the detective in charge of the investigation of these deaths, and it soon seems that Eve may hold information that will help him. But, at what cost to her?

    Looking for a romantic escape? A suspenseful thriller? I Can See You combines both romance and suspense so well! A wonderful escape!

    Synopsis:

    Detectives Jack Phelps and Noah Webster of Minneapolis Homicide Department or "Hat Squad" are media darlings. Magazine covers with Detective Jack Phelps and glowing articles on their joint accomplishments have added turned up the tension on their already complex jobs. Phelps is distracted by his growing celebrity status while Webster becomes increasingly certain that several deaths that been classified as "suicides" may occupy the press for a day or so.

    Homicide detective Noah Webster of Minneapolis notices that two recent suicides are disturbingly similar. Acting on a hunch, he determines that the deaths were murders not homicides. As he and his partner Jack Phelps review recent "suicides", it becomes apparent that a serial killer seems to be targeting women. Webster and Phelps face the added pressure of increased media scrutiny with the recent positive press given to the Minneapolis Homicide Detectives.

    Eva Wilson survived two violent attacks that left her disfigured. It's taken her years to go back to school and build a life. But her current study involving the addictive power of online communities is dragging her into danger. Eva isn't supposed to know the identities of her test subjects, but the sudden spate of deaths among her heaviest users leads Eva to get involved despite the risk.

    Detective Webster had been interested in Eva Wilson, even before her reconstructive surgery. When she turns up at two murder scenes on the same day, Webster looks for her connection to the victims. Eventually, Detective Webster and Eva Wilson work together to search for missing women and stop the criminal before he kills again.

    Review:

    I Can See You strikes me as a book that would appeal equally to thriller lovers and romance lovers because of the strength of Karen Rose's writing.

    Carefully crafted, the characters are nuanced and complex. Even the villains are fully developed while Karen Rose keeps their identities carefully hidden. Karen Rose builds the tension steadily so that as you get anxious, you can't bear to put the book down. I found that the computer and internet angle helped the book.

    While the action and suspense scenes make I Can See You a strong suspense novel, I enjoyed the romance that came through in Noah and Eva's interaction and banter. Reading the book, I didn't just want them to triumph, I kept hoping that they'd come together as well despite all the obstacles.

    This is my first Karen Rose novel, and I'm off to look for her earlier books!

    Leave the Lights On!

    Author Karen Rose is a New York Times best-selling author and award-winner. Other titles include: Nothing to Fear, Count to Ten, You Can't Hide, Die For Me, Scream For Me, Don't Tell, I'm Watching you, Have You Seen Her, and Kill For Me. When she's not writing, she's practicing for her next karate belt test. Karen resides in Florida with her husband, (an avid fisherman), and her two daughters, (who also like to write).
    Eve Wilson was finally emerging out of her dark place after being horribly scarred in a vicious assault. Terrified and ashamed, she escaped into the online realm to cope, and is now helping others to do the same through her psychology graduate program. Moonlighting as a bartender, Eve is constantly in contact with decorated officers who frequent the bar, but one detective has had her interest for a year since he first walked in. When her test subjects begin turning up dead, staged to be suicides, it's that very homicide detective, Noah Webster, that she turns to. He's one of the few who believe that these are connected murders, so Eve soon becomes his online guide and learns that the very attractive detective has his own scars that run just as deep. As Noah and Eve hunt down the madman who always appears one step ahead of them, they discover Eve may be his next target. Together, they try to overcome their pasts and learn to trust again, all the while trying to save each other from the danger that lurks closer than they think.
    I'm so glad I was sent another of Karen's books to review. She never disappoints. Flawed, flesh-and-blood characters and power-house endings are always in store from this talented writer. Her understanding of human nature makes for a psychological twist and turn, edge of your seat, romantic suspense that is both chilling and steamy from the get-go. Admittedly, I knew who the killer was half-way through the book, though in no way was I deterred from reading. The secondary characters were a delight and added to the storyline nicely. I don't know if she has this in mind, but I'd love to see spin-off books on Olivia and David, Callie and Jack, or Tom and Liza. The plot flowed smoothly and the setting was spectacular as well. Bravo!

    Page Turner!

    My synopsis: Eve had already lived through 2 traumatic incidents that left her scarred both inside and out. The outer scars had healed or been "fixed", but on certain days, the inner scars were still fresh. By day she was a grad student studying psychology - and how one might learn confidence in real life (IRL) by "practicing" it in the virtual world via games - in this case Shadowland. By night she was a bartender working at Sal's - a bar frequented by Minneapolis police officers and members of The Hat Squad.
    Shadowland was an online virtual game whose motto was "Sometimes you want to go where no one knows your name". You could do there about anything you could do IRL. You could gamble at the casino, dance at the bar, even take home 'one-night stands'. You became your avatar - and this avatar could be whoever you wanted them to be - and like in most virtual worlds - your avatar was opposite of who you were IRL - for most, it was a reflection of who they wanted to be. Eve had opened up a shop in Shadowland called Pandora's - where people came to buy their avatars. It was also her way of keeping tabs on people in her study. She was not supposed to know who these people were, but she had broken the rules of the double-blind study and had learned there real names.
    The Hat Squad was a group of detectives that were given a fedora when they solved their first crime. They wore the hats as a symbol of achievement and pride. A local magazine had just run a feature on The Hat Squad, with an officer on the cover who hadn't been in shining form the last few months. This article made people even love The Hat Squad more,or hate them with a vengeance.
    Because Eve knew the names of her subjects,when two women's usage in Shadowland dropped - she checked in to it,and discovered they had committed suicide. She went to her professor to try to persuade him that they needed to do more evaluations, but he did not believe that the study had anything to do with the suicides - and as she was not supposed to know names, told her to forget it,but she couldn't.
    Upon checking up at one of her subjects homes, she runs into Detective Noah Webster. Noah had been a patron at Sal's for the last year,and Eve could sense it whenever he was in the bar. Because of her inner scars, she kept to herself,never venturing outside her safe zone where Noah was concerned. Noah had been going to the bar for the last year, only drinking tonic water, as he could not stop thinking about Eve. His wife and son had died years before in a car accident where he was driving,and so wouldn't allow himself to approach Eve either. When he ran into her at the homes of one of the "suicides",he wondered if it wasn't fate.
    My opinion: This book was written to cover the span of about 2 weeks, and I love the way that it is split up in hours/days. Makes you realize how much can actually happen in the span of a few short hours,physically and emotionally. Her characters are flawed,and that makes them so much more real. They are able to hurt and be hurt and do not live in a perfect world. I like it that even though you could say Noah was a knight in shining armor,he was still struggling with lots of baggage. I really loved the character of Eve. Even with the rough childhood and trauma, she was shaped by very strong women,and they have rubbed off on her. Her first instinct is to help people, regardless of the cost to her. Her choice of careers are both careers wh

    Romantic suspense at its best

    Question: What do you have when you mix a female psychology graduate student attempting to move forward after a tragic event and a police officer who is a recovering alcoholic with a psychotic, deranged, serial killer?

    Answer: The makings for a great romantic thriller.

    I Can See You is the latest novel by Karen Rose. Eve Wilson was first introduced to readers in Don't Tell. It's several years later and Eve is trying to move forward with her life. As a young girl, she was the victim of horrific crime which left her face scarred and her emotions damaged. She has since had reconstructive surgery, reinvented herself and moved to Minneapolis to start fresh.

    By day, Eve is a grad student and by night she's a bartender. She lives alone, has few friends and mainly keeps to herself. Still haunted from her attack, Eve believes it is best that she does not allow too many strangers into her inner circle.

    Eve finds herself immersed into her grad coursework and her project. She is studying the relationship between the virtual world and the real world when she stumbles unto her next nightmare: her test subjects turn up dead from what appears to be suicide. The more Eve investigates, the more she realizes that someone has targeted these women. She's determined to find out why.

    The police are stumped with "The Red Dress Killer". He/She leaves no clues and at first glance, these murders appear to be suicides. It's when Eve comes forth and informs the police what she knows, the police realize they have a sick, twisted murderer on their hands.

    I Can See You is romantic suspense at its best. The murderer is so deranged and determined to kill his/her victims, that at times I found myself squirming while reading. The killer first sedates the victims and then tortures them with their worst fears. The killer is also very calculating, always trying to "one-up" the police.

    For Eve and Noah, the reader wants to see a happy ending for both. Both are scarred and live in isolation caused by their respective tragedies. Both feel the attraction, but fight hard against it. I liked that Ms. Rose took time for Noah and Eve to develop their feelings for each other. Both were afraid, however they were able to work through their fears in their own time.

    I want to mention I did not read Don't Tell prior to reading I Can See You. I thought Ms. Rose provided enough of Eve's history for me to follow the story. I wouldn't mind going back to read Don't Tell. I really liked Eve's character and to read her back story will only add to knowing how hard she fought to regain her life.

    I would like to see Eve and Noah return in a future novel. I'm curious to know more about their relationship and how it will progress. In addition, there are several secondary characters I wouldn't mind having a "where are they now?" update.

    I highly recommend I Can See You.

    Great Book

    I read this book in two days. I was surprised how well she balanced the romance and the story. I usually find books weigh one side heavier than the other. She did a great job of telling the story without the romance getting in the way. I didn't know this was part of a series until I looked up more of her books. So you're not missing out by not reading the books before this one. I will read all of her books.

    A great read

    I find this book has the right blend of suspense, intrigue and romance. The plot and the subplots are fantastic, and the killer is fascinating, disturbing, but fascinating (perhaps under a psychological point of view). I would have to say that I initially did not know what I was getting into, but I've come out of it feeling like I've read one of the best thrillers there is this year.
    ----------
    Eve Wilson and Noah Webster are well written, each with a past that haunts them everyday, but they are both strong characters who fight to regain control of their lives. As a reader, you really hope they make it through as these two lost souls are on their own roads toward healing and looking for love, whether they actually admit it or not. Eve's grad thesis is interesting and relevant to today's world. While reading, I sometimes wished I had a project as interesting as hers, without murders on my conscience, of course. The idea of studying the impact of virtual communities on gamers is pretty darn accurate and mind-boggling. (Second Life, anyone?) I thought Eve and Noah were after one killer, but...
    ----------
    The story is well executed and the author just keeps you guessing. The twists and turns just keep coming. If you like crime fiction or suspense/thrillers, this book is highly recommended. I love this book. I really enjoyed the read, although it makes me a little paranoid. Be careful about what you disclose online because you never know who's watching...

    Karen Rose is gaining a well deserved reputation for great romantic suspense thrillers

    In Minneapolis Eve Wilson survived the violent assault that left her face paralyzed, external scars removed by plastic surgery, and emotional wounds not healed (see DON'T TELL). She hides in the web world making friends there while working on her graduate school thesis re virtual communities can help people emotionally heal. Eve has constructed a website Shadowland to help people like her. However, some of her friends and customers in the Shadowland community commit suicide to her shock and regret.

    Homicide detective Noah Webster believes a serial killer has murdered at least two people making it look like they committed suicides at work. Noah's investigation leads to Eve and her website. He soon realizes the psychopath knows the victims extremely well, which the cop thinks means Eve is on the hit list of a diabolically clever killer.

    Karen Rose is gaining a well deserved reputation for great romantic suspense thrillers; her latest winner I CAN SEE YOU is a super Minneapolis police procedural that also showcases the double edged sword of on line communities. Whereas the web enables the disenfranchised to communicate with others; on the other hand the others can include sociopaths or worse. With a strong cast especially the heroine, Ms. Rose writes a terrific whodunit that provides a double edge spin to the Internet applauding the connection of the lonely one to the many but also warning these ones that predators in sheep clothing could be one of the many. This is a great poignant work.

    I Also Recommend:

    Fast-paced thriller

    When I finished this book, and my husband asked me if it was any good, my answer to him was "Yeah, it was freakin' awesome!" Not the most eloquent of statements, I know, but it pretty much summed up my feelings for I CAN SEE YOU. Eve's story was everything I thought it could be PLUS.

    Karen Rose did a phenomenal job creating a fascinating cast of characters. Some of them were old friends that I had met in past books, some are new friends I look forward to meeting again in future books. She holds her readers attention with her chilling plots which are easy to visualize, then she turns the suspense to tenderness, always bringing strong emotions to the surface, that tug on the heart-strings and make you want to be part of the family and friendships that emerge from the pages.

    I CAN SEE YOU is a fast-paced thriller. Noah and Eve are believable, imperfect characters, that don't so much as overcome their flaws and tragedies as they learn to accept themselves and each other for who they are. I've been following Eve since she was first introduced in DON'T TELL, and was eager to see how she would be able to conquer her tragic past. I was not disappointed. I felt Noah was the perfect match for her.

    Though there are other stories that connect with I CAN SEE YOU, you don't need to read them to love this. But after you read it, you will be looking for her entire backlist. In the year since I've discovered Karen Rose, she's quickly become an auto-buy for me as I've scrounged up all of her books except HAVE YOU SEEN HER, which I'm currently on hunt for!!!! I CAN SEE YOU is her best one to date.

    I fervently await David's book, SILENT SCREAM, which doesn't come out until June 2010!

    Not as good as her past work

    I was a little disappointed in this book! I've read all of Karen Rose's past books and it was almost as if someone else wrote this one. It wasn't nearly as good as the others. The dialog (in my opinion) was stiff and forced. The chemistry between the main characters wasn't geniune. I'd highly recommend any and all of her past novels...you should run, not walk, to buy them. I am also eagerly awaiting her next, but this one fell far far short of the mark for me. Had I not read her others first, I would have likely enjoyed this one. I hope she's back on her game with the next.

    Fantastic Story--Her Best Yet

    I Can See You by Karen Rose is romantic suspense at its very best.

    Eve Wilson has rebuilt her life after being brutalized not once but twice in her past. She is going to graduate school and tending bar. Both give her feelings of peace and security or at least they used to. Eve is convinced that her subjects of her thesis in the online Shadowland world are being hunted by a sadistic killer. She is torn about going to the police but detective Webster seems like someone she can trust.

    Detective Noah Webster has seen grisly murder scenes before but his recent one is horrific. It is staged to look like a suicide but things at the site are just not adding up. Plus it looks eerily familiar to another case he happened to see. Noah and his partner Jack Phelps are convinced its murder and they have a serial killer on their hands. Noah is concerned when Eve Wilson is seen at the next alleged suicide.

    Noah realizes that Eve's thesis is the key to the escalating murders. Besides needing her computer skills to help stop this killer, he also is drawn to Eve's quiet strength and beauty. Eve is pulled to Noah like no other man she has ever known and this surprises her greatly. Eve sees in Noah another person who has been through a battle and has come out stronger.

    I Can See You in my opinion is Karen Rose's best yet. The romance between Eve and Noah is stellar, you feel their pain and their joy in overcoming their pasts. The terror is top notch and will keep you on your toes. It was a special treat to revisit past favorite characters and see how they are doing today. I am anxiously waiting the next book from this exceptional writer.
