You Can't Hide


Karen Rose

Karen Rose is one of my favorite authors. Her novels are very suspenseful and chilling. You have to be in the mood to read one of her stories. They grip you from beginning to end.

Back cover: Terror has forever changed the life of psychiatrist Tess Ciccotelli. Someone is tormenting her patients, pushing them to commit suicide, and setting her up to take the blame. But Tess can't break her oath to protect her patients' privacy at all costs. Even when detective Aidan Reagan demands a list of everyone she's treating. Even when the mounting damage threatens Tess herself. Aidan doesn't like anyone who stalls his cases. Still, he can't help but admire Tess's fierce loyalty to her patients, especially when it becomes clear that a nameless, faceless enemy is set on destroying her career, her family, and, finally, Tess herself. As Aidan's heart softens, the killer's will hardens, and one thing becomes clear---the noose is tightening around Tess's neck.

Tess receives a call in the middle of the night supposedly from one of her patient's neighbors saying her patient is about to kill herself by jumping off a balcony. She gets there too late, not realizing her patient is already dead. The police think she is responsible for her patient's death. Tess's fingerprints are found all over the place, including some prescription pill bottles. However, Tess has never been to her patient's home. Someone is trying to set Tess up, but for what.

As more patients die, supposedly by her hand, Tess fights for her life. She starts to work side by side with Aidan, the detective who hates her for declaring a murderer of a young child, insane and incompent to stand trial. Aidan had been the one to discover the child and Tess's actions in court years before angered him. Little does he know what she has suffered since that time. Aidan begins to discover the truth about Tess and begins to believe in her innocence.

I can't write anymore without giving away spoilers about the book. You Can't Hide is very suspenseful, because you just don't know who is stalking Tess and setting her up. Is it a current or former patient, an enemy from the police force, a friend or someone she loves? You'll be kept guessing until the very end. Highly recommended.
