Kill For Me by Karen Rose is the third book in the saga that began with Die For Me for Me and Die for Me that featured the “Vartanian” family. Publisher: Grand Central Publishing, February 2009
Five teenage girls have been viciously attacked. One survived. Only she can reveal the secrets of a disturbing ring of people who kidnap and sell teenage girls on the black market. But those responsible for the crimes will do whatever it takes to maintain her silence.
Susannah Vartanian and Luke Papadopoulos have both sworn to stop the murderers for their own personal reasons. The investigation leads them to the shady realm of Internet chat rooms, where anyone can mask his or her identity. They soon discover a chain of deception so intricate they don’t know whom to trust. Finding comfort in each other’s arms, they begin to unravel the intricately knotted threads, but the killers are ruthless and determined, and won’t hesitate to take extreme measures to insure their anonymity and keep their business intact. When Susannah proves to be inexplicably linked to the crimes, her life is soon in danger, and Luke will do everything he can to save the woman he loves.
Thirteen years ago, Susannah Vartanian was the victim of an assault and she tried to erase her past by leaving the area to become a successful ADA. What brings her back to Dutton, GA is to find evidence linking her brother and his crew of boys who raped other young girls. With a recent rash of kidnapped girl, Susannah and Luke Papadopoulos fear there are similarities with what happened to her 13 years ago and today. When Susannah discovers that the second time she was raped was a set-up, both Susannah and Luke will use all their resources to punish the people who are involved. They do they know that this individual is always one step ahead of them, if only because he has informants everywhere they turn. With a race against time and Susannah’s life on the line, Luke will put the nail to the hammer in solving this case. [4.5 stars – really liked it]
