Publisher's Summary

The Sunday Times best-selling author of Closer Than You Think returns with a breathtaking new novel in the Cincinnati series - would you cross the line between danger and desire, and justice and revenge? A desperate hunt to find a young girl's killer is about to turn deadly....
Former army ranger Marcus O'Bannion and homicide cop Scarlett Bishop have met only briefly, but when Scarlett receives a phone call in the middle of the night, she immediately recognises the smooth voice asking her to meet him in one of Cincinnati's roughest areas.
On arriving, Scarlett finds the body of a teenage Asian girl and Marcus injured. Marcus claims the young woman was working for an affluent local family, and the last time he saw her she was terrified and clearly in need of help.
Having agreed to meet her, they were both targeted for death. As they investigate, Scarlett and Marcus are pulled into the dangerous world of human trafficking, where they soon realise they are going to have to become as ruthless as those they are hunting. Because if they don't, how many other girls may end up alone in the dark?

Don't hesitate....

Took me a chapter or two to get into, but then it was compulsive listening.
Characters you can buy into and a story line just involved enough to keep you guessing.
A book that leaves you feeling bereft when it ends is worth 5 stars.
Off to find the next.

This is a fabulous story

What did you like most about Alone in the Dark?

I loved the intricate plot with its twists and turns

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the tight suspense and the well-rounded characters. She draws such defined word pictures that I can clearly imagine all of the main characters.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

This was a really hard choice but I think that the scene in the hospital waiting room when everyone is awaiting news of Stone I think

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Things are never as they seem, people are never who you think

Any additional comments?

This second book in the Cincinnati series is well up to the usual high standard set by the other series she has done. The many interesting characters in this book lead me to hope that there are more books in this series to come.

Intricate story, but predictable outcome

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not really. As others have said, the main characters are too saintly and the lengthy, explicit and gratuitous sex scene is actually very boring. The important good characters are all beautiful and (spoiler alert).............
predictably bulletproof.
Having said that, I listened to the whole book to find out how it resolved.

Would you recommend Alone in the Dark to your friends? Why or why not?

What is the difference between this question and the previous one (other than friend/friends)?

Did Susie James do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

To a point. I generally find women lowering their pitch to simulate a male voice rather odd sounding. Other than that, I enjoyed her performance.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Not now that I have read the book and know the outcome.

Any additional comments?

I think it's unlikely I'll buy any more Karen Rose books. The two I have had certainly weren't terrible, but, based on those two, she seems to work to a formula, which, for me, has run its course.
