About the book:

In Karen Roses new novel, Have You Seen Her?, a serial killer has his sights set on cheerleaders in a small town in North Carolina. The girls, abducted from their beds, have something in common apart from their cheerleading duties  they each have long dark hair. Its imperative that the murderer is tracked down before he claims more victims, and Special Agent Steven Thatcher is dedicated to catching this monster. Thatcher is a widower, and has his own problems: his son Brad is growing away from him. Brads teacher, Jenna Marshall, is sympathetic, and a relationship grows between the detective and the teacher  but both Steven and Jenna are bruised and wary from earlier relationships. And the seemingly omniscient killer is setting traps  ever closer to his pursuers home territory.

Karen Roses first novel, 2003s Don't Tell, created something of a stir, with her heroine, Eve Wilson, brutalised, left unconscious  and requiring plastic surgery. And if that werent enough, Roses next book, I Can See You, subjected Eve to further agony. So its something of a relief that the new book has different protagonists centre stage, even if they have to go through similar (though not quite as punishing) ordeals. Certainly, the tension here is delivered with similar mastery, and Rose (who was a high school chemistry and physics teacher  educations loss was a gain for readers) knows how to juggle all the requisite elements in a taut narrative like this. Be prepared for long, uninterrupted sessions with Have You Seen Her?  you wont welcome any interruptions. --Barry Forshaw
