Book Description

1 Feb 2010

Evie Wilson was the victim of the villain in DON'T TELL, an assault which resulted in paralysis on one side of her face. After her injury, Evie retreated into the virtual realm, seeking refuge from the public eye by interacting with online friends. Now, with the help of a surgeon, Evie's face is restored and she is ready to return to the real world. However, she remains connected to the internet for her graduate thesis on using the virtual world as therapy to improve self-esteem. She has become an online shopkeeper who sells faces and bodies to users interested in building a new avatar on a website called 'Another World" In her new role, Evie maintains 'surveillance' over her test subjects to ensure they don't become too caught up in the intoxicating virtual realm.

Meanwhile, homicide detective John Grace has been investigating a string of suspicious suicides that he believes are connected murders. John's investigation leads him to Evie when one of her online test subjects is found dead of apparent suicide, but Evie believes otherwise.

Evie is shocked to find herself drawn to someone for the first time in over three years and she's reluctant to trust John. However, he's the only one who believes her story about the suspicious death of her test subject, and he soon discovers that many of the apparent suicides in his case had avatars in "Another World."

As murder victims connected to the website begin to appear more frequently, John asks Evie to be his virtual guide in the investigation. However, they don't realise that the killer is closer than they think - and that he holds a special grudge against Evie.

Karen lives in Florida with her husband of twenty years and their children. When she's not writing, she enjoys travelling, karate and, though not a popular Florida pastime, skiing.

Product Description

Amazon Review

Karen Rose made something of an impact with her debut thriller Don't Tell in 2003. In that book, her protagonist was Eve Wilson, forced to undergo a hideous ordeal. She is savagely attacked and left for dead. Her badly mutilated face requires considerable surgery, and she has virtually lost the use of one of her hands. Alfred Hitchcock was well known for putting his heroines through the most extreme torments, but he had nothing on Karen Rose -- and if what Eve Wilson endured in that first book was terrifying, the trials she faces in the new book by Rose, I Can See You, puts her earlier experiences in the shade.

Eve has moved to Minneapolis where she is holding down a job as a bartender at a place popular with the police. In the bar, she encounters detective Noah Webster, and finds herself attracted to him. But Eve's past has left her with deep emotional scars, and she's not even prepared to consider the possibility of a new relationship. Noah, also, is attracted to her, but is still suffering from the loss of his wife and child, and has turned to alcoholism as a refuge. They are a damaged couple. But Eve is also a student taking a degree in abnormal psychology, and her speciality subject is the pathology of serial killers. She has also decided that she wants to help those who have become addicted to a virtual role-playing site called Shadowland, in which players configure new identities and faces. But she encounters a sinister and ruthless killer who appears to have almost total omnipotence -- and his ability to second-guess the police makes him well-nigh untouchable. Eve is once again to venture into the furthest reaches of terror.

I Can See You quickly demonstrates that Karen Rose has lost none of the skills so evident in her debut novel, and the orchestration of suspense in this book is as adroit as before. While the serial killer narrative is in danger of being sorely overused these days, Rose distracts our attention from this possible pitfall by drawing with skill the relationship between her two damaged protagonists, Eve and the troubled detective Noah. You may feel you’ve read one too many novels about omniscient criminals, but you would be doing yourself a disservice by ignoring this one. --Barry Forshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUSPENSE + ROMANCE = COMPELLING READING 5 Aug 2009
By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Even your shivers will have goose bumps when reading this frightening tale of a far too clever psycho who takes pleasure in killing. Not just killing, mind you, but torturing his victims first by making them endure their worst possible fear, whether it be fire, snakes or being buried alive. The question of how he has this information, who he is, and why he is doing it will keep readers glued (yes, he does glue his victims' eyes open) to I Can See You.

Author Rose brings back Eve Wilson who was mercilessly attacked and left for dead in the author's debut thriller (Don't Tell, 2003). Not only was she attacked but she was cut so severely that her face needed extensive surgical restoration and one hand was rendered almost useless. Nonetheless, what she suffered then is only prelude to what may befall her now.

Eve has gone to Minneapolis where she's found work as a bartender at a hangout for police. It was there that she first saw Noah Webster and was immediately attracted to him, but pushed this thought from her mind as she believed any relationship was forever out of the question for her. Noah is also attracted but still not fully recovered from the loss of his wife and child, and the years he spent in an alcoholic haze trying to forget. Two lost souls.

Eve is also a grad student working on a degree in abnormal psychology; the topic of her paper is "the pathology of serial killers." After spending years in the virtual world as she hid from the real world she wants to learn how to help those who have become addicted to role playing online at a site called Shadowland. There lonely people can choose faces, , play at gambling or dancing, even agree to meet someone they meet in the real world. A dangerous idea.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT 14 Nov 2009
Format:Hardcover
As always with Karen Rose books, beleivable characters, excellent storyline and gripping plots. Loved this book.
The only bad thing about a Karen Rose book is finishing it and having to wait for the next one to come out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Familiar elements rehashed 30 Jun 2010
By Roman Clodia TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I've never read Karen Rose before but I felt all the way through this that I had read her and this book before. There's nothing surprising in this story at all: twisted psycho-killer who hates and fears women targeting, torturing and killing them in elaborate ways, foiled by a hero detective with his own scars (alcoholism, dead wife, blah, blah) and the feisty heroine who lurches from one encounter with a sadistic murderer to another. Along the way the hero and heroine recognise (at first sight, no less) a similar tortured soul and fall in love. And all their friends and family gather round and wish them well, with a group hug at the end as said feisty heroine is adopted as the police's own...

This is certainly fine as a brainless holiday or travel read but there's really nothing here that hasn't been done before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not my favourite KR but still a fab read!!! 17 Aug 2011
By Best Crime Books TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a pretty avid Karen Rose fan I must admit, and I have been slowly working through her older books I have yet to read. Before I started this one I glanced on other Amazon reviews to see what other people thought. One thing that frustrated me was a low rating this book was given due to the `romance' aspect of it. The one thing I do know about Karen Rose, and something potential readers should know is that her genre is `romantic suspense'. The genre kind of gives it away, but if you only want murder and mystery and no more then maybe this isn't for you. Myself, I see nothing wrong with a bit of romance and lust thrown in over a serial killer or two; I find it `lightens the load' so to speak.

This book in particular, like many others of hers, is not a short one. The hardback is a pretty hefty weight and all in all has nearly 500 pages. As usual, it took me no more that one or two chapters to be drawn into the book. Once you have read a few of Karen Rose books you realise that various characters appear in more than one book. Although this is the case each of her books can be read as a stand alone. We meet Eve who is a woman (previously featuring in another book Nothing to Fear) with a past. She is trying to rebuild her life after a terrifying ordeal where she was kidnapped, tortured and left for dead. She works part time in a bar while studying her thesis which involves an online game called Shadowland.

The first thing that struck me about this book is the fact that this was a perfectly believable situation. With the online gaming world taking off it put the fear of God into me while reading it (ridiculous I know)! Pretty soon after meeting Eve we meet Noah Webster who is a copper with his own secrets and past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rose on top form 18 Nov 2009
Format:Hardcover
This books picks up on the story of Evie Wilson, first seen in "Don't Tell" and met again in "Nothing to Fear".
We also meet up again with other characters from the previous books. I like this aspect of Karen Roses writing, I often finish a book with the feeling that I would like to know what happens next in the lives of the characters, with Karen Rose you often find out.
In "I Can See You" Eve is the central character, she is a grad student doing a thesis on people who prefer to live in the virtual world than the real world. Once again her life becomes threatened when women in her study become the victims of a serial killer. In her efforts to help the police uncover the killers identity she sets her self up as one of his victims.
As with all of Roses books there is a romance, this time between Eve and Noah Webster the lead detective, both tortured souls. If I have any critisism of the book it is that I found the will they, won't they element irritating when it was obvious that of course they will! However this didn't detract from the can't put down till I finish grip that this book held me in.
