Mercy Callahan thought she’d escaped the cult decades ago, but its long fingers are reaching out for her again in this electrifying novel in the Sacramento series…
Seventeen years ago. That was the last time Mercy Callahan saw Ephraim Burton, the leader of the twisted Eden cult where she was raised. But even though she escaped the abuse and terror, they continue to haunt her.
When her brother Gideon discovers new evidence of the cult’s—and their victims’—whereabouts, Mercy goes to Sacramento to reconnect with him. There, she meets Gideon’s closest friend—homicide detective Rafe Sokolov. From Rafe, she receives an offer she never knew she needed: to track down Ephraim and make him pay for everything.
But Ephraim, who had thought Mercy long dead, discovers she is in fact alive and that she is digging around for the cult’s secrets. And now he’ll do anything to take her back to Eden—dead or alive.
Say No More by Karen Rose is the second installment to the Sacramento Series. I was in love the instant I started to read this. It begins with a mother trying to provide for her kids but failing on an epic scale. She would come home beaten and with no food for her two kids. The son was old enough to understand and his sister was too young. Their mom takes them with her to what she had hoped to be their ticket to a better life. Instead it was worse than the one they had before it. A nightmare that still haunts the kids, now grown adults. The evil men behind the killing of their mom and their tortures from their youth are set on killing them to bury the secret of their group. But all hell breaks loose.
Many die…but the chances of survival for the siblings and those they love are worth the risks. They have to end this nightmare before it is too late. I was sucked deep into this story. Karen Rose created another brilliant masterpiece. A suspense thriller that had me on the edge and in suspense but also in love with the blossoming romance between two of the characters. The ending was just as powerfully woven as the rest of the book. I cannot wait for the next read in this hot new series!
