Just as he had for Dr. Johannsen. He definitely didn’t want to kill her, at least not at the outset. She’d die, but at a time and method of his choosing. She was big enough that he didn’t need to worry about the dose. By midnight he’d have all his loose ends snipped, his queen secured, so that he could focus on what was important.

He twisted to his feet, leaving her sitting naked on the step staring up at him.

Talk about Die for Me

Went Tyu
Karen Rose writes intriguing murder mysteries with a little romance thrown in. Vito and Sophie struggle to find clues that will catch a horrible killer but do not realize that Sophie, the archaeologist who is helping police with history is also one of the next victims. As Vito and his partner lead a team to catch the murderer, Sophie and Vito begin to think about a future together.

This is an old Karen Rose book that I read after I read her most recent book. It still has an involved storyline that is interesting to watch unfold. She does a good job with her characters and with the way the story unfolds. I was surprised how close the killer was to Sophie when his identify was finally revealed. Plan to keep buying her books.
It's winter in Philadelphia and a body has been found in a shallow grave in a frozen, fallow field. The body has been posed, the victim heinously tortured, and homicide detectives Vito Ciccotelli and Nick Lawrence soon realize they have a monster on their hands. The ME knows an archaeologist who may be able to help search the rest of the field after evidence points to more bodies. Dr. Sophie Johannsen doesn't look like Vito expected when he went to pick her and her ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment up from the college. The attraction between them is instantaneous but horribly ill timed on both ends, and the case Vito's just landed is getting grislier by the minute.

As the death toll grows and more and more bodies are discovered, it's Sophie's expertise in medieval weaponry that puts her in the cross hairs of a cold, conscienceless killer. Vito is determined to keep her safe, but someone out there is even more determined to hear her scream...and scream...and scream before the light of life is extinguished from her eyes forever.

Karen Rose is the very best sort of author. Not only does she write exceptionally well, but she tells a hell of a story while doing so. I haven't been reading her books for long, but I'm quickly working through them now that I'm aware of them. Her unique blend of police procedural, suspense, and romance sets her apart in the genre and catapults her to the top of my list of "must read" authors. Each book is a study in intricate plotting and remarkable balance, led by strong and well developed characters leading ordinary but easy to relate to lives until one horror or another trips them up and pushes them into the realm of the extraordinary.

Die for Me is the best one I've read by Rose to date. In fact it's currently at the top of my list of all the romantic suspense I've read, regardless of author. The plot is a twisting, horrifying thing that draws readers along, keeping them enthralled almost despite themselves. The intricacy of the timing, pacing, and plot is quite astounding given the length of the book, and the characters' journey to catch this monster is riddled with dead ends, double blinds, and shocking evidentiary information that lends Die for Me the creepy and frustrating tension that makes the police procedural aspects of the book so bleakly realistic.

And hands down, I can't think of a single killer in any book I've read recently that is more disturbing and traumatically horrifying than the one here. The depth of malevolence is doubly powerful for its utter sociopathic disregard for life. This is not a killer motivated by sexual perversions or a yen for power over his victims. He doesn't taunt the police with the intricacies of his crime or do things with the intent of getting caught. He is sadistically ruthless in his own pursuits and the rest of the world and their social and emotional mores mean absolutely nothing to him.

It makes him unique. It makes him monstrous. And it makes him one scary dude to read about. I would not in good conscience recommend this book for readers who are easily disturbed by atrocities perpetrated on human beings. The victims' injuries are discussed openly and graphically, even though it's in a more clinical sense, but there is more than one scene that disturbed me, and I've got a pretty high tolerance level for that sort of stuff. Sensitive readers should try one of Rose's other books and skip this one. And if you're the sort of reader who gets stuck imagining the physical and emotional torment of the victims as you read no matter how you try not won't be sleeping well...or at all...for awhile.

The romance between Sophie and Vito evolves with all of Rose's typical adept-level skill, and she makes excellent use of a full-bodied stable of realistic secondary and ancillary characters to assist in that endeavor. I haven't read many authors who can so deftly and completely populate a book with characters that are flawed and wounded to varying degrees but trend towards intelligence and goodness, who are also believable in their actions, words, and motivations. Fewer still manage that with quite the same level of aplomb as Karen Rose does. She's fast becoming one of my favorite authors.

I haven't read her books in order as yet, but I'm going to start, as Rose excels in character crossover and connected backstory and I think it may serve to enhance the reading experience. The mind sort of boggles at whether that's even possible, but we'll see. I loved Die for Me as much as anyone can love something so grim on one side of the coin, and my admiration for Karen Rose only grows with each title I read.

Still...after this one, I may read some light romantic comedy, just to smooth out the rough edges left over from such a sadistic monster as the killer here. Then I'll be back.

Originally reviewed for One Good Book Deserves Another.
This is the first novel in Karen Rose's series. I think the author got the two titles mixed up though because This book should have been titled "Scream for me" and her second novel should have been "Die for me", but they are the opposite.

Die for Me is a romantic thriller with plenty of twists to the plot and character development. For myself, it was easy to figure out who the killer was, but then I read one to two books a day. I just don't always get the chance to write reviews for all of them. Not that this book wasn't good, but I almost never give out 5 stars unless the author stumps me on the reveal or keeps twisting and turning the plot so much that I find it more than just suspenseful.

I'm going to omit the synopsis on this one because so many other reviewers have written excellent ones. The only thing I will say is that "Die for Me" is written more like a thriller with graphic death scenes than the second book "Scream for Me." If you as the reader find this one hard to stomach, than the next book will be far more tame. If you enjoy more of the details in the killings than the next book might not appease you as much. This is a thriller where the second in the series is a police procedural. Both have a romantic sub-plot but not heavy romance if you are into that.

I don't know if this review helped anyone or just confused them more. So, I will get to the point of all my reviews.

Is the book worth buying?
Yes, if you enjoy a suspenseful thriller about serial killers and light romance thrown in. Just note that this book is a little on the wordy side and some readers may feel the need to jump over much of the tedious descriptions and dialog that is not relevant to the story-line. This is the first of this authors books that I have found it to be that way. The second in the series is just the opposite. If the second book did not use one of the secondary characters in this book for the next, you would not even think they were written by the same author. Happy reading.
Another chilling read by Karen Rose. Seriously mental psycho. I'm always fascinated to watch Rose weave the different characters & plot lines together by the end...and suddenly, it all makes sense. I suspected the identity of the villain a little earlier in this one than some of the others, but it didn't distract from the suspense, horror, or ending at all. A Must Read!
