Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Readers may never use an unsecured free Internet connection again after plowing through Rose's engaging new thriller. Four Minneapolis college students burn a condo complex, apparently for political reasons, killing a young woman and a security guard. Homicide detective Olivia Sutherland catches the case; when firefighter David Hunter discovers crucial evidence, he and Olivia must set aside their believably difficult romantic past to find the story behind the arson. Meanwhile, a stalker considers what to do with video of the students' incriminating conversations. Rose (I Can See You) packs action into every moment of four intense days as the meticulous, capable cops and firefighters race to stop a deadly blackmailer with his own distorted sense of morality. Thriller fans will love the high-adrenaline story and robust cast of intriguing supporting characters. (June)

This book started off just a smidge slow for me. You're bouncing around between a lot of characters with a lot going on. It kept me from digging into the story right away. But it wasn't a big thing and pretty quickly I was hooked into the story and just wanted to keep reading.

"Silent Scream" is nowhere near as creepy as some of Rose's other books (like the Vartanian sub-trilogy). It's not a particularly dark tale like those, but there's still a pretty decent body count! This story is more a complicated web of deception, revenge, greed and probably some good old-fashioned psychotic tendencies. There are a lot of plot threads, a lot of characters. So it's not a book you want to read casually. You gotta be paying attention.

I loved the way Rose had it all work out though. She weaved all the story threads together seamlessly. When you get to the end and everything has been revealed, it all fits together perfectly and logically. I love that. Such a complicated story, a story that would be easy for the author to get a little lost in and a reader to finish and be confused, but it's all tied up nicely. I finished and was just like, damn, how does she do this? (write such amazing suspense plots).

I admit that I like her psycho serial killer stories a little better, but you can't have a Simon Vartanian in every book. That would get old. Still, this one has a great plot. Once I got hooked into the story, I just wanted to keep reading because I really wanted to know how it all tied together. You know the whos for most of the book, but the whys take to the end to be completely revealed. And I was surprised on a few things. I also loved some of the subtle tie-ins to the previous book "I Can See You."

The book has its sad moments, too.

Karen rose, the Master of Romantic Suspense, has done it again. In her latest (11th) novel, SILENT SCREAM, Rose delivers heart-pounding suspense and fiery romance as only a pro can.

Although this is a stand-alone novel and easy to love for new Rose fans, long-time fans of Rose will be thrilled to read about David and Olivia, and get some updates from other fantastic characters from earlier novels such as Phoebe Hunter and Noah Webster.

Set in Minneapolis, SILENT SCREAM has arson, murder, blackmailing, mystery, romance and a villain whose diabolical strategy for getting others to do his bidding has Olivia and David racing to stop him before he adds to his victims.

It is no exaggeration that Rose gets better with every new book, even though she has consistently given her fans fabulous characters, exciting mysteries and read with all the lights on suspense.

This is truly one for the keeper shelf, and a great gift for the suspense and romance readers on my gift-giving list this summer.

STORY BRIEF:
Olivia is a police homicide detective in Minneapolis. 2 ½ years ago she met David while visisting Chicago. While they spent the night together he said another woman's name during sex. Olivia was hurt and snuck away without leaving a note. David felt rejected and neither of them contacted the other for 2 ½ years. Since then David moved to Minneapolis where he works as a fire fighter. Four teenagers set a building on fire as a protest about saving the wetlands. Another girl had been hiding in the building and was unable to get out. She died in the fire. A serial killer was aware of the teenagers' plan, and he videotaped them setting the fire. He plans to blackmail them. During the book, we see the killer blackmailing and killing various people.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
It's a long book. My reaction was one long police procedural with a few sex scenes thrown in. There is a lot of tedious conversation. It's mostly police discussion about evidence and what to do next. I wasn't excited about things or drawn to the characters. I was kind of frustrated. Most of my feelings were about this really creepy powerful evil guy with everyone around him being a helpless victim/pawn in his master game. My suggestion would be for the good guys to do something smart to catch the bad guy. But the hero and heroine were helpless victims as well. The main event which allows them to catch the bad guy is someone being in the wrong place at the wrong time and accidentally seeing something. So now the good guys give chase and finally win through luck - not brains or skill.

Another related item is that the police don't slowly uncover details of what and why.

Karen Rose writes another spine chilling tale in Silent Scream.

Detective Olivia Sutherland is assigned to investigate a suspicious fire where a teenage girl has died. Its still to close to her last case that still plaques her nightmares. Olivia vows to do justice for this young victim. Adding another stresser to her life is the return of sexy firefighter David Hunter. Their one night of passion has haunted her for the few years. But Olivia is a pro and figures she can handle David.

David Hunter recently moved to Minneapolis, Minn. to reconnect with friends he has living there. Also he wanted to work his way back into Olivia's world, that is if she lets him. He wasn't expecting a serial arsonist and murder to be the catalyst to getting Olivia to open up to him.

Working closely with David on this case has them both opening up their hearts and working through their pains. Just as their connection starts to grow, the danger to their loved ones increases.

Silent Scream is a riveting tale of romantic suspense. Karen Rose pulls you into the killers evil mind and makes you wonder what will happen next. Just when you think things are calming down, the tension goes up a couple of levels. David and Olivia both have been hurt by love before. It makes their journey to find each other a tough challenge but one worth taken. Their interactions on and off the job are compelling. You find yourself hoping these two will find a way to make it all work. I have been waiting for David's story for a long time, and I can tell you its well worth it. Kudos Karen Rose.
