I don't know how Rose does it but she manages to make every story in this series unique and compelling.

Eve Wilson, who we met in the first and fourth books in the series, is now living in Minneapolis, in grad school and working part time in a bar that is a frequent hangout for police. One detective, Noah Webster, only comes there because of Eve. But, neither has ever said word one to the other in a year. That is until their paths cross outside of the bar at the scene of what eventually becomes

Recommends it for: Fans of romantic suspense
If you love police procedurals, TV shows like C.S.I., or just like to play detective while you read, you'll love this latest book by the master of the diabolical villain, Karen Rose. Boy, does this lady have one twisted imagination! I'll not go into detail about the plot, because there's some good reviews that get into that, and I'm not sure I could explain it adequately either. It has to do with hunting down a serial killer who chooses his victims from an online, virtual reality video game call ...more
Maybe I'm a little biased because I'm a devoted Karen Rose fan (actually bought the hardcover for this book - which says a lot), but this was a fantastic book. Right from the very start Rose drew me into the characters and the story. After that, I had a hard time putting the book down.

I Can See You is Rose's 10th full length novel. It's important to note that all those ten connect in one way or another. Her characters and stories all take place in the same "universe." So there are a lot of vario

Very good for romantic suspense.

This is not light reading. One of the reasons it’s long is because we watch the serial killer plan, get, and kill many people. It’s hard to believe that he gets away with so many things. You’d think someone somewhere would see something. But it makes a good story. And it makes a long story. There is no rape, but the reader does watch torture.
There is a happy ending for the good guys. I had a minor problem with hero stupidity - in Spoiler below.

What I learned from this book:

I am a woman in my 40s which makes me just like the victims.
I don't have a man in my life which makes me pathetic.
I don't have children which again, makes me pathetic.
I have a cat or two which shows that I have sublimated my need for love into pet ownership.
I have an active on-line life which makes me open to hacking and stalking.
I do enjoy routines--work, recreation--which makes me relatively easy to find.

All of these factors prove I live outside the mainstream soc

I had 2 reasons to want to read this book, first because I was curious to what Rose was going to come up with after the Vartanians and second because I was curious to read Eve’s story after having met her in a previous book. I’m happy to say that I enjoyed it very much.

In this story Rose introduces a new group of people, the police force known as the Hat Squad of which the hero – Noah – is a part of. Eve, who has been a victim, has now tried to move on with her life and is a college student work

Overall, I really enjoyed this book.

As you can see from the title, it's book 10 in a series of interconnected stories. I've never read any of the other novels, but honestly I didn't realize it was part of a series when I picked it up. Many times, when a series gets past its second or third book, it's impossible to pick up with whatever the newest novel is without being completely and utterly lost (yeah, that's right, I'm talkin about you, Warden). ICSY, however, did a fantastic job of standing a
Wow! Another page turner. Excellent thriller-suspense and I wasn't sure who the bad person was until the end. Great characters. The focus of this story centered on Eve Wilson (from earlier books) and Noah Webster; however, characters from earlier books popped in and out as well. New characters were introduced, too. A story was set up between Olivia and David, I think.

I Can See You revolved around an Internet role playing game, "Shadowland." Scary stuff. The killer was very sadistic and this boo
A serial killer has started terrorizing the women of the Twin Cities. He stalks them in the virtual world, sets up dates in the real world, follows them home and submits them to their worst fears before killing them. Every murder is staged as a suicide with the woman hanging from a hook in her bedroom, dressed and made-up as a prostitute, her eyes glued open, an overturned stool under her, a pair of red pumps on the carpet.

Detective Noah Webster suspects foul play when a “suicide” looks just lik
One of my favorite Karen Rose books. It was longer, for one thing, and the characters in this story are a little more flawed than they generally are, which was nice. I love it when the characters are easy to relate to -physically and emotionally- and not plastic dolls with no baggage whatsoever. The way they came together, Noah and Eve, was really lovely in how gradual it was. I hadn't read Don't Tell and Nothing To Fear, so I knew nothing about Eve's background; therefore I was on the same page ...more
Narrator: Elizabeth S Rogers

I enjoyed this even more on audio:D Rogers did a wonderful job with the narration and I so wish they had gotten her to do the ones Marguerite Gavin did. Gavin's voice had that high-pitched whine I dislike whereas Rogers' was just right. Even her male characters were good and Abbot's (Noah's police boss) was so gravelly, it stood out amongst the rest - important since he appears a lot.

I found the plot even more intricate and eventfu
Bin doch froh, das ich es beendet habe.
Ist aber für mich trotzdem nicht ihr stärkstes Buch.
I picked this book up with some trepidation, following my last 3 star attempt at reading a Karen Rose. I've always maintained that she writes a great thriller but that the romance spoils it. I'm all for romance and given that I'm a huge Jackie Collins fan, I'm certainly no prude! However, when romantic scenes start to exceed five pages, I tend to get a bit bored. That wasn't the case with this particular Karen Rose and I loved it from start to finish. I even managed to get to the end of 628 page ...more

When Eve quickly discovers that a killer has targeted her test subjects, she talks to Detective Noah Webster who is investigating the suicide of one of the computer gamers. Noah believes that Martha Brisbane was murdered. Now he and Eve must work together to uncover the serial killer who has now targeted Eve.

4.5 stars

Another very well-written, complex detailed, multiple emotion book. I enjoyed seeing characters mentioned from previous books. This took the story to the Twin Cities. Since I lived there the past 30+ years I like that. But it didn't really utilize any places I recognized, it could have been set anywhere. The romance in these stories is blended well with the action/mystery. Things progress quickly sometimes because of the life / death situations. It isn't too fast in the story though.

Loved it, loved it, loved it! Karen Rose has become one of my all time favorite authors. She is an absolute must read for me. This is book 10 in her series, but not all of the books have the same characters in them. Eve in this book was introduced in the very first book of the series, Don't Tell and reappears in Nothing to Fear (she may have been in a couple of others, but just mentioned, nothing big). In any case, I would definitely recommend starting at the first book and reading the entire se ...more
Awesome. This is the first of Rose's books that I've read and I couldn't put it down. Both a fast-paced murder mystery/thriller and a love story, the characters drew me in and I found myself caring deeply for them. Although the amount of awful situations that Eve, the protagonist, has found herself in stretches belief a little, her combined strength and intense vulnerability make her very appealing and I was rooting for her all the way to the end. The plot has plenty of twists and turns and kept ...more
While I have problem with prior book to this (that I have YET finished), "I Can See You" reminds me why Karen Rose is one of my most favorite romantic suspense authors. The crime, the secondary characters, do not take over the story from the heroine and hero on this book: Eve Wilson and Noah Webster. And I can feel the pull between them from the very beginning. I think having recurring characters in here (David Hunter , Tom Hunter, Olivia Sutherland) make the story compelling. It's a good additi ...more

As usual, Karen Rose is becoming a “go to” name, guaranteeing a great intriguing read ahead of you.

In “I Can See You”, some of the characters are familiar. This is Rose’s way of quickly acclimating you to the action. If you remember these people as side characters in earlier Rose books, you’re a little bit ahead of the first time readers. However, you do not miss anything besides familiarity, so it is a good book for those who haven’t read any of the books. (It is not a series, just repeated cha
Buku buku KR selalu membuat saya mengalami book hangover. Cerita dan alur buku buku beliau hampir tak pernah gagal membuat saya merasakan sensasi sedang berada di roller coaster. Walaupun kemampuan beliau dalam meramu cerita romance suspense tidak bisa diragukan, saya baru selesai membaca buku ini setelah-tidak kurang- setahun memiliki buku ini. Sayapun menyesal karena dulu tidak menyabarkan diri untuk membaca bab bab pertama dan malah pindah ke buku lain dalam list saya.

Allison (The Allure of Books)
This was a good one! Eve is such a strong character, I've loved her from the beginning. I knew this was going to be her book and I've been excited to get to it. Noah was pretty hunky, I liked him a lot.

I liked seeing the bits of Tom, I bet he gets his own book soon! Looking forward to that.

It wasn't that hard to figure out who the killer was, but as always with Karen Rose, knowing who the killer is doesn't necessarily mean you know how it will end.
