Kill for Me

By Karen Rose (Mass Market, 2009)
New York Times bestselling author Karen Rose delivers another pulse-pounding suspense novel that ties into SCREAM FOR ME.

Five teenage girls have been murdered. One survived, and only she can reveal the secrets of a disturbing 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.

Susannah Vartanian and Luke Papadopoulos have both sworn to stop the murderers for their own reasons. Susannah, the sister of the hero in SCREAM FOR ME, suffers from a mysterious past that is connected to the sinister black market. Luke is an investigative agent and a computer expert who refuses to let another child predator get away.

Susannah and Luke are instantly attracted to each other, but their troubled pasts prevent them from immediately acting upon their feelings. The case will lead them to the shady realm of Internet chat rooms, where anyone can mask their identity. As Susannah and Luke draw closer to the criminals, they discover a chain of deception so intricate they don't know who to trust. Susannah and Luke find comfort in one another's arms, but the killers are ruthless and determined, and will take extreme measures to insure their anonymity and keep their business intact.

  • "Rose paints her characters with a flesh and blood brush, bringing life to their every word and gesture. There could well be a new thriller sheriff in town." (Lorenzo Carcaterra).

  • "This is a stupendous police procedural suspense thriller containing a complex story line and a large cast although many are corpses.  The story line is fast-paced and filled with action from the onset and never slows down.  The romantic subplot between Susannah and Luke is handled deftly.  KILL FOR ME is an exhilarating thriller."

  • "Following Scream for Me, Rose brings her twisted Vartanian trilogy to a gritty and thrilling conclusion.  A page-turner from the get-go, this novel shows that palpable evil can wear an innocuous face.  Without doubt, Rose is in the top echelon of suspense masters! 4 1/2 stars."

  • "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."
