Bestseller Rose concludes her thriller trilogy that began with Scream for Me and Die for Me with a bang. In Dutton, Ga., where 13 years earlier a secret rape club flourished among the bratty sons of the town's elite, an elderly monster known only as Charles and his depraved minions steal teenage girls to sell to perverts in a lucrative human trafficking scheme. Hot on their trail are the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's special agent Daniel Vartanian; his partner, special agent Luke Papadopoulos; and his long-suffering sister, Susannah Vartanian, a New York City ADA. A botched raid spurs the murders of five girls and the removal of abused "assets" to another hiding place. Two courageous teen survivors provide the GBI with help, but a mole in the GBI working for Charles complicates the takedown. Rose juggles a large cast, a huge body count and a complex plot with terrifying ease. The sweet romance between Luke and Susannah provides welcome relief from the many scenes of brutality.

Five teenage girls have been murdered. One survived, and only she can reveal the disturbing secrets of a ring of people who kidnap and sell teenage girls on the black market. But those responsible for the crimes will do whatever it takes to maintain her silence.
In the final book of Rose's Vartanian thriller trilogy (after Die for Me and Scream for Me), Susannah returns to Dutton, GA, to testify against her rapists. Over the next three tense days, she and FBI agent Luke Papadopoulos race to identify the leaders of a human-trafficking ring dealing exclusively in teen girls. Meanwhile, five teenage girls have been brutally murdered, and the bodies continue to pile up. Rose skillfully uses multiple points of view, including those of the perpetrators, victims, and police, while still only revealing enough information to leave the reader anxiously puzzling out the clues alongside Luke and Susannah. Although the previous books in this trilogy added depth to the backstory, it's not necessary to read them to enjoy this book. Librarians should note the adult sexual themes and violence depicted in this well-crafted, exciting novel. Recommended for popular adult fiction collections.
