Review by Booklist Reviews

*Starred Review* In Gardner's seventh Detective D. D. Warren thriller (following Catch Me, 2012), the Rose Killer is re-creating the crimes of Harry Day, a serial killer who kept the skin of his victims as a souvenir—153 vials of souvenirs. Day's legacy also includes two daughters. Shana distinguished herself at 14 as the youngest person in Massachusetts history to be tried for murder as an adult. A psychiatrist specializing in pain management, her sister, Adeline, was born with congenital insensitivity to pain. Detective Warren goes to see Adeline professionally, after she is injured at a crime scene. When she learns that Adeline is Harry Day's daughter, she asks her to help identify anyone who would have been influenced by her father. The obvious suspect is Shana. But how could a woman who has spent the last decade in solitary confinement be responsible for these vicious mutilations and murders? In this strong addition to the series, Gardner retains her place on thrillerdom's top tier. If they haven't already discovered her, fans of Tess Gerritsen, Alafair Burke, and Meg Gardiner would love an introduction. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Gardner has a reserved seat on most best-seller lists, and she'll be claiming her spot once again. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Four-year-old Shana and her nearly one-year-old sister, Adeline, take two very different life paths after the death of their father, serial killer Harry Day, in Thriller Award–winner Gardner's absorbing seventh novel featuring Boston homicide detective D.D. Warren (after 2012's Catch Me). Shana heads to prison for life after killing a boy at age 14 and later murdering a fellow inmate as well as two corrections officers; Adeline, born with CIP (congenital insensitivity to pain), becomes a successful pain therapist. When a killer begins channeling Harry's gruesome murder technique, Warren, who has been referred to Adeline for treatment of a debilitating injury suffered on the job, investigates. As the three women interact with one another, Shana appears to know more than she should, Adeline reveals less than she should, and a nervy killer taunts Warren. Gardner repeatedly ratchets up the tension while the strange relationship between the two mismatched siblings leads to a deadly climax. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Jan.) [Page ].

Detective D. D. Warren must consult one killer to catch another in this taut thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling “master of psychological suspense” (Associated Press).

Her sister, Shana Day, followed in her father’s violent footsteps, first killing at age fourteen and being incarcerated for more than twenty-five years. After a brutal attack, Boston Detective D. D. Warren needs Adeline’s professional help to recover physically. But when a new psychopath known as the Rose Killer begins a reign of terror, D. D. must also consult the insane Shana—who claims she can help catch the madman. D. D. may not be back on the job, but she is back on the hunt. Because the Rose Killer isn’t just targeting lone women; he’s targeting D. D. And she knows there’s only one way to take him down...
