No One Left to Tell by Karen Rose

Thriller and romantic suspense from the Baltimore series. Can be read as a standalone.
PI Page Holden meets and works with state attorney Grayson Smith to uncover evidence of a murder. Twists and turn abound in this story. High death count but some surprising wins in the end.
Intriguing, intricate, and gripping. A great read.
I listened to the audio version.
4 stars – Romantic Suspense

Karen Rose is one of my favorite, go-to authors for a masterful romantic thriller and one of the best when it comes to chilling suspense and creepy killers. Her storylines are always intricate, gripping, and taut, and this is certainly no exception, with a complex plot that deals with wrongful imprisonment, conspiracy, murder, intrigue, and political machinations.

Grayson and Paige are interesting, well-developed characters, and I really enjoyed their romance. Grayson i
Paige Holden is now a PI in training, partnering with Clay Maynard after her move from Minneapolis to Baltimore. When her pro bono client almost crashes into her, Paige runs to her bullet-riddled car and hears her dying words before a sniper's bullet finishes her off. Unfortunately, it's all captured on video and when Assistant State Attorney Grayson Smith sees Paige in action, he's inexplicably drawn to her. Maybe it's karma as Paige's client was the wife of the man Grayson put behind bars. Now ...more

Okay so I find this book cute and entertaining, but I think I'm just a little bit confused because there are so many names mentioned in this book and maybe because I'm itching to finish this to read Joseph and Daphne's story which is the next one...

Oh dear. Maybe this was one of those books that you either get or don't. Sure if I actually cared about any of the characters I might have something better to say about this novel.

The novel begins clumisily, with our heroine receiving a phone call from her business partner to fill out her back-story ("Hey lady just calling to talk about the past few significant events of your life") The putziness continues as our main lady Paige can't work out whether she is a black-belt, knife and gun toting ba

I haven't read a book by this author before so wanted to check her out. This book was available from the library on audio. I was enjoying the story fairly well and listened for several hours then had the sense it should be wrapping up soon. When I looked at my ipod it said I was on part 10 of 24! And that is where it went to hell. The author just kept throwing characters into the stew pot and more tangled up plot twists. Why would you do that? Longer is not better if there is not depth and subst ...more

Gosh! Too many bodies to count but my shock is getting less and less.
The mysteries is awesome and the villains really are a bunch of evils!!
For this type of story, the romance is very good too, what more can I ask?

Officially I'm Ms. Rose's newest fan now!:)
But perhaps I need a break from this series a little bit, work hadn't done, home is a mess and I just put ready meals in the oven for a quick dinner!! Urgh!!!

Yeah, that's me 😬

This book totally ROCKED ME! It grabbed me right from the start and never let me go. There were so many twists and turns and bad guy's that there was never a dull moment.

I really LOVED both the H&h. They were both extremely smart, brave, courageous and all around fantastic characters. I could easily see why they were attracted to either other from the very first and were glad that they did

Wonderful read Ms. Rose! Now as many books as you have put out, they always feel fresh and new. I am kicking myself for not reading this book sooner, because the sparks between Paige and Grayson was off the charts. I just kept telling myself that I wasn’t in the mood for a book with high body count…and you must admit you are famous for that. But this book felt more like a romance then a suspense with romance. Loved P and G as a couple and the loved scenes….wowza…you certainly picked that up a no ...more

I really enjoyed this book and the very complex plot. Loved Paige and Grayson (H/h) as they both had so many positive characteristics. They were so easy to like and read about.

This book just adds to the list for why I love reading books by Karen Rose. She is definitely one of my favorite authors!

You will absolutely love this book if you like long, complicated stories with an endless cast of characters and a barely there romance arc between characters who have the hots for each other, though you can't quite figure out why. Toward the end of the book (p. 452 out of 524), one of the characters helpfully summarizes the story: "Serial child molesters, murderers, case fixers, a cop gone bad, his kidnapped child, and a mastermind eliminating anyone who gets close to the truth.

No One Left to Tell
3.5 Stars

When a car crashes right in front of her, newly minted PI, Paige Holden, becomes ensnared in a vicious web of lies and deceit revolving around the wrongful conviction of an innocent man. Together with Assistant State's Attorney, Grayson Smith, Paige uncovers a decades-old crime and the people who would kill to keep their secrets.

An action-packed suspense plot and an enjoyable romance, but the book is overly long with unnecessary repetition and recapping of events.

I love Karen Rose. She's an awesome writer and this book is set in and around Baltimore which is fun for me as I have lived in Maryland for most of my life. I love the chemistry between the MCs and look forward to reading more of this series in the future.

Awesome, as always. The suspense is heart stopping and the pace is pulse pounding. I know a lot of readers don't like the instalove thing, but it really does work in this book. This is about a 70%-30% Suspense-Romance ratio. The romance is there and the respect that the hero and heroine have for each other leaps off the page, that they are smoken hot in bed doesn't hurt either. Great chemistry between them. That Karen Rose is the supreme goddess of romantic-suspense is a fact. She writes loving ...more

Private Investigator Paige Holden is shaken when she finds her pro bono client, Elena Munoz, dying in her arms from a gunshot wound. Elena gives Paige a flash drive and tells her the cops were chasing her before she dies. Not sure who she can trust, Paige takes the information to State's Attorney Grayson Smith, the man who put Elena's husband behind bars for murder. As Paige and Grayson view the data, it becomes clear that evidence in the Ramon Munoz case was manufactured and an innocent man may ...more
Complex story with a large cast of characters; very long.

If you've read this author before, you know what to expect. I did like many of the characters' interactions. The bad guy(s) -- not much sympathy here.

Another great addition to Rose's collection of high-octane romantic suspense! I like the fact that she's adding a bit more romance among the pages of dark, gritty and psycho suspense!

Rose's writing is really good and I love it, however this story didn't really caught my interest. First 200 pages was really boring and I really wasn't digging this book, but after it got interesting and the book started to get a bit faster. Romance part of the book was good, a bit naive but good and sexy. Thriller part was slow and boring and meh. Those first 200 pages really ruined the book for me, even tho other 300 were really good and I loved them. Also, I found the first book way better th ...more

Can't really write up a review just yet. (Look for my Fresh Meat coming up on Suffice it to say that I loved this book. Lots of action, insanely high body count, and perfectly matched hero and heroine with plenty of sexytimes. Only downside was that it ended.

Narrator: Marguerite Gavin

While my review, generally, hasn't changed from my previous one below, my audio experience has not been as positive. This has been true for the Vartanian series in audio as well. I couldn't get through the first book of that either (Die For Me) but at least I finished Gavin's You Belong to Me, even if I didn't her style.

Gavin was much better here, the second installment in the Baltimore series. No distracting accent

I don't know how Karen Rose does it. She's one of the most masterful suspense writers I've read.

Series Note:
All of Rose's books connect in one way or another. They all exist in the same universe. This is the 13th book, but I think it stands well enough on its own to be able to read as a standalone.

Needing to get away from a recent tragedy in her life, Paige Holden moves to Baltimore and starts learning to become a P.I. She takes on a pro bono case, helping a family prove tha

I have tried to read this twice!!! I just cannot engage with the plot at all. Really bad. I think Rose needs to cut out a few characters, get more gory and psychological and focus on disentangling the complicated plot. I just can't seem to care enough about the main characters. My advice is give this one a miss!

PI Paige Holden’s and State’s Attorney Grayson Smith's story carry us into a world of blackmail, dark secrets, and a decades-long string of murders. This story was fast-paced, gripping and disturbing.

One thing I want to make clear is that this book along with all of Karen Rose books falls under the genre of Romantic Suspense. Now I am a fan of both romance and crime so the mix of the two doesn't bother me at all. For those that want zero romance, you may want to look elsewhere. For those that, like me, quite like that element of the book then get yourselves out and get a copy of her latest release.

No One Left To Tell starts as it means to go on when we see Paige Holden make her way to a pro
4.5 Stars

Karen Rose has been one of my auto-buy author’s since the first time I picked up and read my first book by her.

I always feel like I’m trying to solve a puzzle while engaged in one of her stories. A corner piece here, an edge there and finally a piece of that pesky blue sky. No One Left to Tell was like a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle and it packs a whopping 518 pages. That’s a lot of story with action, twists and turns, secrets and a sweet and budding romance.

This turned out to be one of my favorite Karen Rose novels! I loved the way she tied the characters from her previous series to the ones from her new series. It's always great to catch up with people we loved in other books. The mystery was phenomenal and engrossing, and the action was non-stop. The love story was really emotional, as the main characters both had trauma in their past. Learning to deal with those issues and trust each other, all in a couple pressure-cooker days really amped up th ...more

What I have come to expect from a KR book is to not expect anything. You don't know who the killer is until she wants you to know. Oh, you can guess, but you will probably be wrong. I was not disappointed in this book. I wasn't sure she would be able to top "You Belong t Me" but she did. I loved this book and am looking forward to more. I would really love to see Stevie settled, and maybe also Joseph.
