Jessica No, it can be read stand alone but it does tie into the previous two books. If you have a chance to read them first, I would. All of them are good.

Every Dark Corner by Karen Rose is a 2017 Headline publication.


Unyielding suspense, Sizzling romance!

This third installment in the ‘Cincinnati’ series is a continuance of the second book, with two new leads, Kate Coppola and Decker Davenport, picking up on a deeper thread resulting from the investigation that took place in the previous installment.


As the story begins, Decker is in a coma and Kate, who saved his life, has never left his side. The horrific child pornography ring that Marcus

After the dramatic climax in the last story where Ken Sweeney, the human trafficking kingpin, was taken down, everyone thought the case was over. When an attempt was made on the recovering FBI Agent Griff (Decker) Davenport's life, it was clear there were some loose ends that needed tidying up. With FBI Agent Kate Coppola as his wingman, Decker and the rest of the task force must race against time and a rising body count to find that loose end.

I liked that we again get the killer's point of

Every Dark Corner is the third book in Karen Rose’s Cincinnati series. It can be read as a standalone, but due to the reoccurring characters and the continuing story arc it would be better read following book one, Closer Than You Think, and book two, Alone In The Dark.

“The Professor” is the disguise used by an evil genius whose crimes include drug manufacturing, drug and human trafficking, child pornography and serial killing. He ruthlessly uses his drug addicted buyers as informants, alibis,

Every Dark Corner is the third installment in Karen Rose’s Cincinnati romantic suspense series

FBI agent Decker has just come out of coma and with agent Kate is desperate to help lives of kids that are in danger. The antagonist is The Professor who sells drugs to kids and also exploits them to make pornographic movies. There are a lot of dead bodies and a whole team racing against time to save the victims.

I would strongly recommend reading this series in order as there are a lot characters

Rating~ 4.5 stars

Karen Rose's Every Dark Corner deals with some pretty horrific things such as child pornography and human/child trafficking along with issues of drug abuse/dependence.

Side Note: We met both the protagonists of the book in the last book "Alone in the Dark" but it was towards the end so you don't actually need to read that one to understand what is happening in this book but the secondary characters and the plot would just make a lot more sense if one was aware of the events

I love the way this author connects her books and we get to meet up with characters from previous stories. This is no exception and as it begins we have undercover agent Decker in hospital fighting his way out of a coma as he recovers from a recent shooting. By his side is Kate the gun toting agent who helped save his life, waiting for him to wake up and hopefully have information to help catch the remaining filth that trafficked children. Unbeknown to them both the shady character known as the ...more

I really wish Karen Rose would stop writing such embarrassing, ridiculous side Story love/sex scenes. Never in my life have I had to skip so much in a book to get to the actual good parts of the story,the actual plot. The earlier books weren't like this, all Christian Grey wannabes, and gahhh! Christian Grey is already horrendous on his own. Please stop. Give women some credit and write a mystery without the boner/erection/asshole distractions because women will love and appreciate a well ...more

Another amazing book by Karen Rose! The 3rd book in the Cincinnati series didn't disappoint and since I had just finished the 2nd book in the series, it was exciting to see what happened next. I would recommend reading Karen Rose's books in order due to reoccurring characters and linked events/plotlines. If you don't care about spoilers then go ahead, but a warning

Karen Rose is one of my favorite writers and I put all my other books aside to read this one. I did however have a mixed reaction to this one.

I have read the two prior novels that tie heavily to the characters in this book. It definitely helps to have this background. Some of the characters and circumstance were a little fuzzy for me and I did find that I wished I had remembered more - it would have helped. I like that Ms. Rose writes complex plots, but at certain points I felt that this was

Love this series. Karen Rose is a master at writing the multi-level, multi-viewpoint masterpiece. I haven't found a currently writing author who does it better. At over 600 pages, book #18 is showing no signs of the series slowing down, this book is nothing short of a wonder. 600 pages and it just flew. Even with the catch up character analysis, this book never dragged. It was all action from the moment Decker opened his eyes.

At the end of the last book FBI Special Agent Griffin "Decker" is in a

Special Agent Kate Coppola is the heroine of Karen Rose's latest book Every Dark Corner. Kate is on a mission to stop the man who is trafficking drugs and acquiring teens for the internet sex trade. Tough as nails, yet compassionate, Kate is an origami and knitting queen, with a songs playlist you wouldn't expect. She also has a very good reason to always carry a certain genre of book on her. (No, not telling, can't spoil the surprise.). Meet a badass with a yarn bag and a work partner named ...more

At the end of ALONE IN THE DARK, undercover FBI Special Agent Griffin "Decker" Davenport was injured, and our story begins with him in a medically induced coma. Special Agent Kate Coppola has kept a bedside vigil. Recently transferred, she prefers knitting by his bedside to her cold hotel room. As she knits, she listens to the tapes Agent Decker had hidden in the linings of his coat.

The case is complicated and had my palms sweating as I read. In the previous book we took down a human trafficking

Karen Rose never fails to amaze and surprise me. Once again she has written a spot-on riveting and gripping criminal tale with elements so awful that I fear nightmares will plague me for awhile. I'm as addicted and engulfed with her characters and their personal stories as I am with how they relate to one another. The additional personal touches that make up their coping mannerisms are outstandingly projected. The partnerships and the coupling are always so perfectly matched. And it would be ...more

613 pages. A bit too long for me. I guess i will be reading this in between reading other books. But I must admit I'm finding this one by Karen Rose very difficult to get into. Wish this book was shorter.

Recommends it for: No one
I was not thrilled with this book, to say the least. Every single main character had childhood abuse issues...be it physical or sexual or both...and that is unbelievable when there are so many of them. Is Karen Rose trying to say the majority of children have been physically and/or sexually abused in this country or world? I'm not trying to minimize the very real horror of child sexual or physical abuse, I was one of them, but this was a little too much. And the saccharin sweet nonsense between ...more

Every Dark Corner is the third book in the Cincinnati series, and the 15th book I’ve read written by Karen Rose. I am a massive fan, Karen Rose is my ultimate guilty pleasure, and I was over the moon to be given an advanced reader copy of her newest offering to review.

The story picks off where Alone In The Dark ends. A gang of human traffickers have been exposed, most of them killed in the process. With this group out of the picture you would think the streets of Cincinnati were safer, but you

Although I enjoyed this book, as I always do when it comes to Karen Rose, I wasn't particularly interested in the romantic part of the story this time. There didn't seem to be as much focus on it as there usually is, what with so many other things going on, and Kate and Decker remained a little two-dimensional compared to characters in previous novels. It was an excellent thriller though. Love KR's work!

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for my ARC.

This is the third book in the Romantic Suspense Cincinnati series by Karen Rose. Karen has long been one of my favourite authors and I've just recently finished the second book in the series Alone in the Dark. I was really keen therefore to get stuck in to this one and I definitely wasn't disappointed.

I actually enjoyed Every Dark Corner a lot more than Alone in the Dark. It was far more fast paced and page turning. I literally could not put

I'm a huge Karen Rose fan, having read every book that she has ever written. This is the third instalment of the newest series and I would seriously recommend that you read the previous two books first otherwise a lot of these characters here will confuse you with their relationships to each other as there are A LOT of them!

The storyline here won't suit everyone as it contains some distressing plot threads around child abuse but these are mostly implied and not graphically illustrated although

This wraps up the 3 book Cincinnati series and picks up where the last book ended, with undercover agent Decker Davenport in a coma fighting for his life and FBI agent Kate Coppola glued to his side.

A lot of the players involved in the child trafficking and pornography ring were brought down in the last book – that is - all except the main player who goes by the name The Professor. He is now killing off all the loose ends and the FBI are trying to figure out who he is. They know this man is

It's been a good while since I've read a book from this series and man have I missed it! All of her books do tend to be long, but man they are definitely entertaining throughout the entire thing!

I am so happy to meet some new characters and follow some old characters and see that they are all entermingling nicely! I enjoy getting more to each of their stories!

Okay, well.... this book was good. I'm just not great with really long books with 624 pages. If they are this long, they have to really grasp my interest in a big way for me to not want to rush through it. But that is me - I'm a little bit impatient.
The story was interesting and suspenseful, the main characters were likeable and the 'bad guy' was developed enough for me to really dislike him. But.... it just dragged things out a bit, for me personally. About half way through I noticed myself

Recommends it for: True Crime lovers, suspense
I received this book in a good reads giveaway. This book is intense, suspenseful with some very dark characters a good read for True Crime lovers. I believe that it would be best to read the first two books in the Cincinnati series in order to completely understand all of the characters. I read the first but not the second and still felt a little lost at times trying to figure out what was going on with some of the characters. I also felt that a character who is coming out of a coma would not ...more
