Silent Scream by Karen Rose

When a teenage girl dies in a suspicious fire, Detective Olivia Sutherland is assigned to track down the arsonist. Then she discovers something more sinister: a vicious blackmailer who preys on young people and murders without hesitation. Making her work even harder is sexy firefighter David Hunter. He's not only sharing the case but sparking memories of their long-ago night of passion, when feelings were left unspoken and hearts were broken.David has his own ghosts, and a million regrets. But while he and Olivia try to face the wall of pain between them, a diabolical puppet master is pulling strings to make a group of twentysomethings do his bidding. Soon Olivia and David are scouring the city for a calculating criminal who seems tantalizingly close--and is moving in for the kill.

about the author~ (from the authors website)
RITA-award winning, USA Today best-selling author Karen Rose earned her degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Maryland. For a number of years she worked in the engineering field, earning two patents, but began writing romance suspense novels when scenes began filling her mind and her characters would not be silenced.
Her debut suspense novel, DON'T TELL, was released in July, 2003. Since then, she has released eight more novels and a novella. To date, her books have been translated into five languages. Her third novel, I'M WATCHING YOU, received the Romance Writer's of America's coveted RITA award for Best Romantic Suspense for 2005. In that same year her second novel, HAVE YOU SEEN HER? was also a 2005 RITA finalist.
Her fourth novel, NOTHING TO FEAR, was a 2006 RITA finalist, was nominated for Romantic Times Magazine's Best Suspense and for the SIBA Book Award for Fiction.
Karen's ninth novel, DIE FOR ME, was a RITA finalist for Best Romantic Suspense and won the Romantic Times' Reviewers' Choice Award for Best Romantic Suspense of 2007.
A former high school teacher of chemistry and physics, Karen lives in Florida with her husband of twenty years and their children. When she's not writing, Karen enjoys traveling, karate (she's just starting!), and although not a popular Florida pastime, skiing.
my thoughts~
If you've read I Can See You (and you should have,  HERE's my thoughts on it!) then you might just happen to recall Eve's friend David. (sorry, my computer has been wonky and I couldn't finish on time!)
Silent Scream is David & Olivia's story and.while it took me awhile to read, mainly because l.i.f.e. was happening! But once I was able to actually sit down & read it, I found it hard to put down! I really enjoyed how the story and look forward to reading more, more, more of Karen Rose's work!
If you enjoy reading Karen Rose (and really, how could not? lol!) then you will want to pick up Silent Scream when it hits the shelves near you June 1st!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. Receiving a copy in no way reflected my review of this book.
