Publisher's Summary

Electrifying. Addictive. Suspenseful. At the top of her game. Karen Rose, the multiple Sunday Times Top Ten best seller, returns with a new mini-series, new characters and her best novel yet.

Deacon Novak has returned home. The experienced FBI Agent knows that his move to Cincinnati's Major Crime Enforcement Squad will be challenging, but the greater challenge will be saving his younger brother before he becomes the kind of criminal Deacon is chasing.

Faith Corcoran has escaped her identity. Being a therapist to victims of sex crimes was rewarding, but her work with their offenders has jeopardized her life. Her move represents a chance to build a new life in the empty old house her grandmother has left her.

What Faith doesn't know is that a killer has made the house his playground, taking girls into the basement and murdering them. And now Faith is about disturb his fun. With a murderer focused on her, Faith is going to have to put her trust in Deacon if she's going to survive. Because this killer is always closer than she thinks....

The first in a brand new series - and Karen Rose at her tense, tantalising, and thrilling best.

    "Too closely related"

    Enjoyed it very much but felt there were too many people in it, particularly relatives! Was inclined to get mixed up and have to go back to listen again.

    Story
    "Thoroughly hooked!"

    The plot kept me guessing all the way through, narration was excellent. If I have one tiny complaint it's that there were a lot of raunchy parts to this story, which is fine when you're reading a book, but when you're listening out loud in the garden and you notice your neighbours have suddenly gone quiet. Ever so slightly embarrassed.

    Story
    "Exciting doesn't cover it"
    What did you like most about Closer Than You Think?

    This was a real galloping story, little pause in the action. A reall "page turner"


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything, but could have done with a little less graphic sex.


    Have you listened to any of Susie James’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No, but was delighted with this performance


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Very much so, but it was just too long


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, just found out it is a series, so will be looking for the others.

    "Disappointed!!"
    Any additional comments?

    After seeing all those great reviews I was looking forward to listening to this book. But there were so many characters to try to keep up with and the plot was just completely unbelievable. Although I am quite willing to suspend my disbelief this story took it way too far. I did like the two main characters, but I felt sorry fir them being stuck in this silly story!
