Review: NO ONE LEFT TO TELL by Karen Rose

When a pro-bono client dies a violent death in P. I. Paige Holden's arms, she leaves a very important piece of evidence. Unfortunately, Paige isn’t sure whom she can trust with the information. State Attorney, Grayson Smith sees the horrific scene played out on the local news, and realizes that he knows the victim.
What Paige and Grayson discover unravels an old case, casting shadows of doubt on an imprisoned man. Was he really guilty? Or has the true villain been left free to wreak havoc on other unsuspecting victims?

If you like suspense and haven't picked up Karen Rose yet...well, what in the heck are you waiting for?! She is hands down my go-to author when I'm looking for a stomach-churning, toe-curling, thriller! She has a knack for creating fantastically evil villains that truly mess with your mind, and her crime scenes can be particularly gruesome. Yikes, I feel so bad for her victims as they are usually in for a brutal death.
NO ONE LEFT TO TELL is an edge-of-the-seat suspense, that also adds some sizzling chemistry and romance between Paige and Grayson. The air between them positively sparks, but it in no way shadows the action that unravels the mystery of who the real villain is. The motives aren't initially clear to help you identify the killer. I loved how Paige and Grayson worked together, opening up an old case to discover what and who could have been overlooked, discovering that the wrong man was originally convicted. Grayson's past personal life also collided with the case to add more mystery to the mix.
I can't wait to read more Karen Rose!
