Homicide detective Adam Kimble is no stranger to battling demons. But Meredith Fallon is a different kind of weakness: one that could actually be good for him, if only he would let himself depend on her. Meredith has loved Adam for a year, and seeing how hard he's worked to deal with his PTSD makes her feelings only stronger, but she respects his needs. Her work keeps her busy anyway: She counsels sexually abused women like Mallory Martin to help them reintegrate into the world. But someone doesn't want Meredith helping women like Mallory, and Meredith finds herself in the crosshairs of a very determined killer. Adam would risk anything for her, but they'll soon find out she isn't the only target.

Karen Rose crafts another tale...
Three teens in foster care. Two boys and a girl. The girl gets raped by the foster father.
A 6 year old child is seeing a child psychologist. The father is afraid she knows something about his illegal activities. Two other psychologists have already quit working with the girl. The third will not.
A young man wearing a suicide vest and holding a gun is forced to enter a restaurant to kill the third psychologist but he disables the vest and warns her instead. Someone outside shoots and kills him when the vest fails. He had been one of the three foster children.
The girl who was raped by her foster father is now in another predicament that includes rape and abuse. And now someone wants her dead. And she wants them.
The last of the three foster children is now in college. When he hears of his friend's death he goes to Cincinnati where all this is taking place. He goes to the police and meets the woman his friend was supposed to kill. Lots of guilt for abandoning his friends. But maybe there's redemption.
Generally there's no guessing with books by Karen Rose. She points you in a direction and really fleshes out that character, the bad and the worse personality traits. She also runs a romance story parallel to the suspense. For me that part is ok but I am not into romance stories so I usually fast forward through. The suspense part is the majority of the book and makes it worthwhile for me.
Hillary Huber does an excellent job narrating.
If you have never read anything by Karen Rose I HIGHLY RECOMMEND all of her books.
