Alone in the Dark by Karen Rose
Genre: Thriller, Crime
One young victim in a dark alley...Who is she? Why did she needed help? Was she alone? What is Malaya? More important... Why did they kill her?
These are just a few of the questions you will have at the beginning of the book, more and more after you enter inside the book, but of course the answers are waiting for you at the end...
Ready for the darkness?
"Scarlett glanced at the cruiser, then looked back at Marcu's face, needing the answer to one last question before the officers arrived. 'You said you were going to leave one I got here, when she was still alive. Once she was dead, why did you come back? There was no need to continue first aid, and the shooter might have come back again. Might have realized you were still alive. Might have tried to shoot you again. Why did you come back?'"
I can say that I have read almost all of Karen Rose's books, some are more dark than others, but all of them with their own suspense and strong characters, this book is not less. Everytime I start reading a Karen Rose book I advise all my circle of friends that I will be hooked in the book till the end, so no dates or messages... this time it took me only 2 days to finish it, it was a turn-on page and I couldn't stop reading until the end.
This is a dark book, not just for how it started, but for the case the main characters will have to investigate, human traffic. It is never easy to talk about this topic, less to make a book about it, don't you think?
I can't imagine the pain, the fear and what kinds of abuse these people have to face, just because they where searching for something better, sad but true. And sadly they are too scared to ask for help if they have the chance.
I would like to know which is the satisfaction the people who sell human beings have, it seems that for them it is more important the money than a human life, so sad...
Karen in this book will make us face the most scaring monster we will ever see, humanity.
In Alone in the Dark you will have to face murder, vengeance and love... in a thriller full of twists and dark corners... Are you afraid of the dark?
