    Awesome

    Brennan is among the best when it comes to murder! See No Evil hooked me from the first page. It was chilling and suspenseful....will keep you up late. The who done it part of the story will keep you guessing. The romance will have you wanting a cold shower.

    Excellent Series

    I am new to this author and enjoy her writing very much. I read all three in the "No Evil Trilogy" and would highly recommend them. Allison Brennan has become one of my favorite authors with her stories about serial killers.

    Allison Brennan: 5.00:
    A favorite author.  Like her writing style, her voice, the way she weaves romance into her gripping suspense stories.

    See No Evil: 5.00:
    Four sentences in this book struck a very personal chord, thus it became a very engrossing, moving, heart-felt story.

    Hero: 4.0:
    Connor Kincaid: It was impossible not to feel drawn to this rule-breaking, hot-blooded, hunk of a man who was described as "a pit bull when he cared about something."  By the end of the book, Connor had resolved the issues tied to his bitterness that overwhelmed him because he had to resign from a job he loved (San Diego Police Department) when he was forced to testify against his brothers in blue.

    Heroine: 4.5:
    Julia Chandler: A gorgeous deputy district attorney with a take-no-prisoners reputation, who fought for what she believed in.  It was impossible not to admire a heroine who would not back down -- to anyone.  But . . . she was willing to break the law to save her niece.

    Story Line: 4.5:
    A uniquely fascinating tale about a villain with a God complex, who manipulated four emotionally wounded teens to kill so he could wreck vengeance without getting his own hands bloody.  When Julia's niece, Emily, was suspected of killing her abusive stepfather, Judge Victor Montgomery, she called Connor, a private investigator, to prove Emily's innocence -- even though she was instrumental in the destruction of his career five years ago.

    Action: 4.0:
    The story line moved at a fast pace as the villain moved the teens around his chess board and Julia, Connor, Dillon, and Will investigated the deaths that were the result of an e-group called Wishlist.

    Emotion: 4.0:
    Although not as intense as expected because of the way Brennan drew me into this story, it was impossible not to feel sympathy and compassion for so many of the characters; namely, {1} Connor, {2} Julia, {3} Emily, and, surprisingly, {4} Faye.

    Romance: 4.0:
    There was a stronger feeling of romance in this book than in Brennan's previous four.  Brennan had a kiss that Connor and Julia shared five years before with which to work.  The fireworks between Connor and Julia bespoke of strong feelings that could not be suppressed.

    Sensuous: 3.5:
    Lots of sizzle, heat, and sensuality were present when Connor and Julia made love.

    Suspense: 5.0:
    Brennan is a master when it comes to developing a story that keeps readers on the edge of their seats as they try to figure out who the villain might be -- right along with the main characters.

    Secondary Characters:  5.0:
    The secondary characters ranged from rich, well-developed characters to barely-there members, but they added great depth to this story.  Liked the continued inclusion of the Kincaid family by including: {1} Dillon Kincaid (the psychiatrist), {2} Patrick Kincaid (the e-crimes guru), {3} homicide detective Will Hooper (an honorary Kincaid), and {4} District Attorney Andrew Stanton (the ex-brother-in-law).  The villains all added to the rich suspenseful flavor necessary for this story: {1} the number one villain (even though he remained unidentified), {2} the co-villain (who also remained unidentified), {3} Faye Kessler, the most heart-breaking teen villain, {4} Camilla "Cami" Wohler, the most cold-blooded teen villain, {5} Dennis "Skip" Richardson, Jr., a minor teen villain, and {6} Robert "Robbie" Haxton, the other minor teen villain.  Julia's relatives were necessary additions: {1} Emily Chandler Montgomery, her niece, and {2} Crystal Montgomery, Emily's mother (the gold-digger).  And, last, but definitely not least were two intriguing additions: {1} Selene Borge and {2} Billy Thompson.

    Finally a man has been the target of insane people. He didn't suffer as long as the women in Ms. Brennan's other books nor was he tortured for any lenght of time. But a man was the victim although after reading the book some people will think he derserved his fate. Hopefully there will be more male victims in future books. Book is a keeper! Bunny

    A terrific romantic mystery

    In San Diego Emily Chandler Montgomery hates her creep of a stepfather, Judge Victor Montgomery. The teen knows he is a hypocrite espousing family values except at home and her mother is only interested in her image as an icon on the charity circuit. The only blood member who cares about Emily is her paternal Aunt Julia Chandler, a Deputy DA.-------------- When someone murders Victor in their home by cutting off his penis and shoving it down his throat, Police Detective Will Hooper assumes Emily with some friends killed her stepfather and then tried suicide. Julia hires defense lawyer Iris Jones whom she has opposed in court and asks former cop turned private investigator Connor Kincaid to help her prove her niece¿s innocence. Connor prefers to say no to the woman who got him kicked off the force, but as he did once before for Emily he agrees to help.------------------ SEE NO EVIL, the sequel to the first Kincaid tale SPEAK NO EVIL (with HEAR NO EVIL coming next month) is a terrific romantic mystery. The prime legal-private investigative story line is fast-paced and filled with action on several levels this subplot brings out the key cast from the niece to her aunt to the investigator as well as the lawyer and mom so that the audience appreciates the functional and dysfunctional interrelationships. Though the romance between Julia and Connor is deftly handled to enhance the tale, it still intrudes on a great legal-private investigative thriller.-------------- Harriet Klausner
