Summary

When a killer closes in, there's only one way to stay alive. Say You're Sorry is the gripping first book in a brand new series from Sunday Times bestselling author Karen Rose.

A serial killer is on the loose in California, leaving letters carved into the torsos of his victims.

When Daisy Dawson fights off a masked attacker one night, she grabs a necklace from around his neck. What she doesn't know then is that she's found the missing link to a cold case that Special Agent Gideon Reynolds has been tracking for seventeen years. With Daisy's help, he finally has the opportunity to get closer to the truth than ever before.

But it soon becomes clear that Daisy's attack was just the beginning. Now the bloodied bodies of young women are showing up all over the state. As Gideon tries to track down the killer, it's clear he has a new target. Daisy is in more danger than they ever could have realised....

Say you're Sorry for choosing this narrator

This is the first time I've had to stop listening to a Karen Rose book. I've either read or listened to them all her books but the narrator is dreadful.

dreadful narrator

enjoyed the story, great to meet some new characters and catch up with a couple of familiar "faces"
what really put me off was the narrator. I am aware that he is male and female voices are challenging but they all sounded like really bad drag acts, even the men. If the story hadn't been gripping I'd have given up.

That narrator needs to say sorry!

Good story as usual from Karen Rose but ugh, that narrator! Parts of it were like he was reading from a page that he'd only just been handed. Pauses mid sentence that I presume he thought were dramatic but actually often lost the context of the meaning. I enjoyed the story but this narrator spoiled it for me. It was painfully bad acting so if you're a die hard Karen Rose fan, you'll put up with it but if you aren't avoid this until it's re-recorded!

Mixed feelings

I enjoyed the build up to the outlining of the serial killer and the workings. The story had many elements most of which came together well. I did find the dabbling in soft pornographic story telling like a bad “dirty mag” story and it didn’t enhance the story and was quite off putting and unnecessary. The narrator had strange voices for female characters and a drawl that was too slow. But overall a good listen.

Terrible narration

I’ve listened to every single Karen Rose book, and lived every single one. I’ve gotten to chapter 4 of Say You’re Sorry and I’ve finally turned it off. I looked ahead to see the next book in the series also has this guy narrating. So that’s it, I won’t be listening to this series at all now. He is slow getting his words out and his voices for the characters are awful. Sorry Karen Rose.

Great story pity about the speaker

Great story but the reader was a bit mechanical and all voices sounded the same was hard to differentiate between them and who was being spoken about.

Get a NEW NARRATOR

I love Karen Rose but this narrator is TERRIBLE. Every Male character sounds like they are about to burst into tears with a trembling irritating voice. It was difficult to listen to.

Not her best

While I still enjoyed the story, it has never taken me so long to finish a Karen Rose. The worst narrator I have ever heard. It made it very difficult to listen to. It may be the voices that ruined it for me but not one of the strongest storyline. Role on the next one.

Loved it

Narrator was excellent, new caricatures were spot on.
Found myself going the long way home to get an extra 10mins listening time in
