Summary: (from goodreads) Years ago, a young girl was beaten and raped while onlookers did nothing. Now those witnesses are becoming victims themselves…

Baltimore city Homicide Detective JD Fitzpatrick has seen a lot of horrific violence, both as a cop and during his deployment in Afghanistan, but nothing like the trail of tortured bodies that are turning up throughout the city. He’s up against a brutal killer with a very personal vendetta. And now JD is beginning to suspect that his medical examiner may be shielding some crucial evidence linked to the case.

Forensic pathologist Dr. Lucy Trask is intrigued by JD’s compassion, but she isn’t about to mix work with pleasure. Not while there’s a ruthless killer on the loose. And definitely not while she’s keeping a dark secret that could connect her to these vicious killings—and put her next on the killer’s hit list…

This is my first book from Karen Rose, and she is now in my must read authors list. A promising thriller beginning to end, full of suspense that keeps you glue to the pages to try to guess what new mystery will unravel and wonder who is not whom they pretend to be.

July Trask is a medical examiner, who had a rough life and keeps a secret life. Bodies and body parts are being left for her to find from someone that seems to have ties to her past and has opened old wounds. J.D. Fitzpatrick is one of the detectives in her case, which shares a difficult past as well, and has an instant attraction for the doctor. She has the feelings as well but tries to avoid them by shutting down her feeling. They both struggle not wanting to open up and needing to feel that they are not alone anymore and can’t seem to be away from each other. Along the way you get peeks into the serial killers mind, expecting and guessing who will be next and what the next move will be. The characters in the story are well described to let you into their personalities and help your understanding of the plot.

This book is for the adult readers, that like hard core thrillers, it has descriptive violence and explicit sexual scenes, and worth reading every single page, can’t wait to see what the next book will bring.
