Alone in the Dark by Karen Rose- Spotlight and Review

The New York Times bestselling author of Closer Than You Think returns with a breathtaking new novel of suspense that crosses the line between danger and desire, and justice and revenge.

Homicide Detective Scarlett Bishop has seen enough bad guys slip through the cracks and too many innocent victims go unavenged to know good doesn't always prevail. So far she’s been able to lock away her rage and her vigilante fantasies. That lock is about to break.

Former Army Ranger Marcus O'Bannion is a fierce champion of victims’ rights. His secret past gives him good reason. He believes he’s seen the depths of human depravity, but then his investigation into the murder of a young girl who once asked for his help lures him and Scarlett down a dark, dark road—and straight into the crosshairs of a dangerous, powerful underground ring that deals in human trade. To stop them, Scarlett and Marcus have to be just as cunning and just as ruthless. But first they have to make it out alive.


Alone In the Dark (Faith Corcoran, #2)Alone In the Dark by Karen Rose
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story has many twists, incredible revelations, hot romance, and a stunning outcome. The author combines romance with family drama and crime drama, which sounds like an unlikely combination, but it works. This story is not for the faint of heart, as several uncomfortable topics are addressed, and of course it’s a little gritty, which means plenty of violence.

If you like uncompromising crime stories with lots of action and suspense, but also enjoy a human interest element, with a little romance on the side, you can’t do better than Karen Rose.
