Welcome back to the latest book (#3) in Karen Rose’s fabulous Cincinnati series. Having started with the very first book in this series, I must admit that I am totally emotionally invested in seeing this entire series through to the end. The act of human trafficking and sex slaves is abhorrent, but when it involves young children the act becomes even more despicable. This set of stories follows the brave men and women who are determined to stop and shut down the monsters who perpetuate these foul acts against humanity.
FBI Special Agent Griffin “Decker” Davenport finally wakes from a medically induced coma. His brain is a bit fuzzy but slowly he remembers the desperation he needs to remember moron order to find the missing children he knows are in danger. Just at the end of his last undercover investigation, Decker had thought it was all over. Just before the case would have been closed, Decker discovered not everyone had been rescued, but he was severely shot and was unable to tell anyone that the case couldn’t be closed. .
Special Agent Kate Coppola had recently been assigned to Cincinnati and had a hand in saving Decker’s life and took it upon herself to sit by his hospital bed while listening to the tapes that Decker had recorded while undercover. She has been trying to piece together the crime he was investigating and growing closer to the agent she was finding more and more attractive as time went by. Thankfully it was Kate who realized that there were missing pieces and and Decker’s life was in danger and when someone tried to poison him in the hospital Kate was able to save him before it was too late.
Not only were Kate and Decker the main characters in book #3 but anyone following the series would be happy to see and enjoy the interaction of secondary characters that were introduced in the first two books of the series. Actually I do believe EVERY DARK CORNER could stand alone but if you want my advice I would highly suggest reading them in order so that the reader enjoys seeing how the previous characters are making out as time marched on.
Bottom line: EVERY DARK CORNER is a remarkable book that is packed with non-stop suspense and action. Ms. Rose’s villain is a master of disguise and a genius at staying one step ahead of the authorities. The chase is on with very little to go on and the suspense is amazing because of the cleverness of said villain. Highly recommended!
