Eve Wilson's face was once scarred by a vicious assault. Terrified and ashamed, she escaped to the online realm, where she could choose the face she allowed people to see. Years later, her outer scars faded and inner scars buried, Eve has fought her way back to the real world and is determined to help others do the same. Now a graduate student moonlighting as a bartender, Eve researches the addictive powers of online communities. When her test subjects begin turning up dead as a result of apparent suicides, she doesn't know where to turn.

Homicide detective Noah Webster is one of the few people who believe the victims are connected murders. Eve becomes Noah's online guide and realizes that the handsome detective may have secret scars as painful as her own. As Eve and Noah chase a killer who is always one step ahead of them, together they try to overcome the tragedies of their pasts and learn to trust again, but they soon discover that danger is much closer than they think.

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 a series of connected murders.


This was a creepy, chilling story made even more so because we get the points of view of the madmen. There are several separate plots that will eventually connect but it’s challenging to figure out.


I was utterly fascinated by the plots, one involving a virtual community and players connected to Eve. And her relationship with Noah was just perfect in its premise and story development. The ending kept me on the edge of my seat. Still loving this series!

I LOVE reading and am just crazy about so many series and writers. I’m open to exploring new authors and genres and appreciate those who not only write well but can deliciously craft a character and a tale. Your suggestions for new authors and titles are very much welcomed.

I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!

  1. This sounds interesting! I don’t think I’ve ever read a book by Rose before. I might have to check out one of her books. I love creepy thriller/mysteries.

    • I hope you decide to read her books, Samantha, as I think she’s one of the best in the genre. They’re all one connected series so you should read them in order (spoilers for earlier books in later ones).
