Here are some of the wonderful reviews Black Rose has been receiving...
was a tough book to stick with at the beginning. Any book dealing with
this subject matter should be tough. I admit to almost giving up on it
after about a quarter of the way in. I was worried about the graphic
details that I felt would be coming as the story progressed. Luckily, I
hung in. Kris Thompson approaches this subject with as much detail as
needed to keep you feeling very much at ease but without overwhelming
you with brutality. There is a fine line to be walked, and this book
does it well while still staying true to the nature of the story.
Another aspect I found myself liking was that this story didn't end with
the typical ending you would expect. I'm trying to not give away
anything but suffice it to say that this story is more about victims and
the way an ordeal is ongoing for the rest of their lives."

"I gobbled that book up in one sitting!!! Remember that movie Kiss the Girls with Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd? Well Black Rose
is that on STEROIDS and SO MUCH BETTER! Two of my favorite words to
use when describing a book...TWISTED and BRUTAL! It seriously played
out like a fantastic suspense thriller movie. Be forewarned, it is VERY
graphic and violent....YAY! If you love dark books like me, you'll
understand where I'm coming from. The shocking prologue certainly sets
the tone of what you're in for. This dude is one SICK MOTHER F'ER.
Exciting, action packed plot that gives no hope of a HEA. If you're a
nail biter, better wrap them fingers up or you may risk the chance at
gnawing them down to the knuckle. This was a standalone which I know is
another HUGE YES for most people. I truly loved every tender
and sick moment. Finally a captive book that puts up a fight (don't get
me wrong, I do love a great stockholm book as well.) Kris Thompson,
thank you for an incredible book!"

"Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the advance read on this book.
are just not enough words to describe how great I thought this book
was! I completed it in one sitting, refused sleep till I was finished.
psychotic killer is abducting women, holding them hostage for days and
days while raping and torturing and killing in a most horrendous way.
Except you know this by reading the back of the book. What you dont know
is the story inside...there is so much more."

"Not a read for the faint of heart. Thompson doesn’t pull any punches
when it comes to what the women endure during their captivity. A truly
