CURRENT THOUGHTS: This one has an interesting plot for

sure. Three years ago, a young woman was kidnapped by a

serial killer dubbed The Rose Killer. However, she managed to

escape, and the killer was himself shot dead in front of her

eyes by police. But now someone is emulating the kills of the

dead man and have gone out of their way to make Kate very

well aware of the fact that they are coming after her to finish

what the original Rose Killer could not.

There are some mentions of rape in this novel which can be

triggering to some people. However, I didn't find these scenes

to be too detailed and are easily skipped. I find the handling of

the original Rose Killer case to be a bit... well odd to be honest.

The FBI has a statement from Kate that that had been the man

who had kidnapped and held her captive, so they closed the

case without any follow-up (including finding the cabin in

which Kate had been held). I would have thought that they

wouldn't have wanted to leave any loose ends. I also find it to

be a little odd the way Ryan sometimes speaks to Kate as

though they are strangers one minute, but then thinks of her as

though he feels deeply towards her well-being. I'm sure its

meant to convey his depth as a character, but it struck me as


I am also fairly convinced I have figured out who is doing the

killings now, something I figured out pretty early on, so if I'm

right, that will be a disappointment as I feel like it was made

glaringly obvious, and I would have liked to have a few more

red herrings tossed in the mix to muddle the waters.
