Karen Rose's DIE FOR ME is her best romantic suspense to date. Sexy homicide detective Vito Chiccotelli, with the help of a beautiful archaeologist, Sophia Johannsen, uncover a field of graves that are not yet all full. Together the clues lead them through a trail of ancient history, full of armor, swords and torture devices as fascinating as the DiVinci Code. The serial killer is a cold and calculating villain that puts Hannibal Lector to shame. Rose masterfully blends the villain's computer savvy with an artistic flair to give the reader a fast pace whodunit. The closer Vito and Sophia get the killer, the closer he gets to them. This is a must buy page turner.

A body is unearthed in a field. Heading the investigation, Detective Vito Ciccotelli requests the help of an archaeologist to use ground penetrating radar in the area. Sophie Johannsen helps him uncover a total of seventeen graves, nine of them filled with bodies. Some of the victims have been buried up to a year; many have been tortured. But it's the empty graves that really scare Vito. This means the killer isn't done, and has many more murders planned.

Another excellent romantic suspense novel from Karen Rose. I love her books. She uses just the right amount of romance with the right amount of suspense. Her characters are very likeable and there are no TSTL moments in these books. I'm not a fan of getting the villain's point-of-view, but it works in this story. By getting into his head, we find out why his is killing, and just who he plans to put into the empty graves. This made the book even scarier for me. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

This was the first Karen Rose book I read and it compelled me to find the rest of her books. After reading them all now I found this one to be less exciting than the others which totally surprised me as I loved this book. If you like romance with suspense you have to read this book!

If you like extreme violence,gore,and torture, this is the book for you. I don't. I tried to skip the worst parts, but that was most of the book. I finally stopped reading about 1/2 way through. It is well written, and there is a nice romantic part, but I couldn't take all the graphic torture and violence.
