Die For Me

"This was an enjoyable thriller..."


The first victim is found in a snow-covered Philadelphia field. Detective Vito Ciccotelli enlists the aid of archaeologist Sophie Johannsen to determine exactly what lies beneath the frozen ground. Despite years of unearthing things long buried, nothing can prepare Sophie for the matrix of graves dug with chilling precision. The victims buried there haunt her. But the empty graves terrify her - the killer isn't done yet.

He is cold and calculating, the master of a twisted game. Even with Vito and Sophie hot on his trail, he will not stop. One more empty grave must be filled, and one last scream must be heard - the scream of an archaeologist who is too close for comfort and too near to resist...?

This was an enjoyable thriller, albeit slightly marred by the 'Mills and Boon' element Rose seems to favour. As with another of her books I recently read, I'm Watching You, there is a steroetypical 'beautiful heroine' who has suffered in the past and has a mistrust of men and a strong, attractive hero with whom she gets together. This is, of course, after the statutory mating dance they carry out. I found this sub-plot to be very predictable and in the two books I have read of hers, very similar. Overall, the thriller part of the book is very good and the romantic element just is not needed to improve it.
