Overview

In #1 New York Times bestseller Lisa Gardner’s latest pulse-pounding thriller, Detective D. D. Warren must face a new fear as a serial killer terrorizes Boston.

My name is Dr. Adeline Glen. Due to a genetic condition, I can’t feel pain. I never have. I never will.

The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear. . . . She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work.

My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she did as a free woman.

Six weeks later, a second woman is discovered murdered in her own bed, her room containing the same calling cards from the first: a bottle of champagne and a single red rose. The only person who may have seen the killer: Detective D. D. Warren, who still can’t lift her child, load her gun, or recall a single detail from the night that may have cost her everything.

Our father was Harry Day, an infamous serial killer who buried young women beneath the floor of our home. He has been dead for forty years. Except the Rose Killer knows things about my father he shouldn’t. My sister claims she can help catch him. I think just because I can’t feel pain doesn’t mean my family can’t hurt me.

D.D. may not be back on the job, but she is back on the hunt. Because the Rose Killer isn’t just targeting lone women, he is targeting D.D. And D.D. knows there is only one way to take him down:

Fear nothing.

    Plot spoilers

    3 reviews and 2 are ruinous plot spoilers. Please bn, do something to these rude plot spoilers who feel the overwhelming need to read the book, then tegurgitaye the entire book in their own words as if the rest of the readers are too dumb to read. Hey, plot spoilers....just a few lines are enough to say if the book is good or not. You do not have to retell the entire book.

    Sluggish Start, Fantastic Ending!

    After waiting almost 2 years for the new D D Warren episode, I must confess, I almost archived it after about 20 chapters. Fortunately I decided to continue and am extremely happy I did. In the beginning there were many things going on all at the same time and in what appeared to be total disorganization. At one point I asked myself what I was doing trying to struggle through. I couldn't seem to put things together but then about chapter 30 or so the pieces all started to fit and wow the paragraphs just flew by and every page was full of excitement, surprise and more information. Eventually all came together for a great ending. Another fantastic episode in the life of detective D D Warren. I just hope it doesn't take 2 years for episode 8!

    What a ride! Incredible! I intend to read more of Lisa Gardner's books. The storyline is riveting and intense. I always like a hint of spirit in the books I read so this one filled the bill for my perfect read. I recommend highly for those who love to hang on to every word and sit on the edge of the seat.

    I tend to read a lot of thrillers, but almost none of them grab

    I tend to read a lot of thrillers, but almost none of them grab me in the way Fear Nothing did. With a unique protagonist, villains you feel oddly connected to as a reader and and an intelligent plot, this is one of the must-reads on your reading lists for this new year.

    Fear Nothing has two protagonists. One of them is the familiar trope – a female detective, struggling to balance the job with life at home. She’s intelligent, clever, and not afraid to think out of the box. But when she investigates a murder scene on her own and gets attacked by the murderer, something inside of her breaks.

    She’s sent to a therapist, Adeline Glen, who helps D.D. get over the anger she feels toward her pain now she can’t use her arm anymore. While Adeline helps D.D., she also reveals clues about herself, and gets more and more involved in the investigation. Because Adeline is no ordinary therapist. She hides two dark and terrible secrets.

    She can’t feel pain. And her sister is Shana Day, a murderer in her own right. They’re both daughters of Harry Day, a serial killer who’s legacy runs on, even today.

    When the investigation leads toward Adeline’s sister, Shana, who’s been locked up in prison for several years, Adeline realizes she has no choice but to confess the truth. Because whoever is murdering these women – skinning them – may be after her too.

    D.D., our lead detective, didn’t surprise me all that much. She was an enjoyable character, not all too grumpy, thank God (it seems like the grumpy detective is the new way to go if you read the latest thrillers) but she’s not that original, nor refreshing. Adeline on the other hand…wow. Now that’s a character so complicated it’s dazzling. With a background story that would make any reader jump in their seat, and an ever-changing personality, she’s drawn between the person her adoptive father wanted her to be, and between the person her real family made her become. With a fascination for her own legacy, a deep, dark secret, and her inability to feel pain, her difficult relationship with her sister, she’s one of the most fascinating, intriguing characters I’ve read about in ages. If she were the main character of this book, only her, without D.D., or she’d been forced into the role of the detective, that would’ve been fireworks.

    Unfortunately, that’s not the case, and it’s time to talk about two other intriguing characters. Shana Day, Adeline’s sister, so observative she notices everything that goes on around her before anyone else does. Shana, who portrays no emotions, but would go to any length to protect her sister. Shana, who was forever scarred by what her father did to them. She was a lot darker than Adeline, yet not truly a villain either. I felt for her, wrapped up as she was in her own sadism, and anti-social personality, messed up by those early years of life, the most fragile ones. It was hard to grasp her, to figure out what was going on in her mind, and that made her interesting.

    Then the last protagonist – the villain. I won’t say much about it, except that it left me guessing for a long, long time.

    As for plot, it’s a complicated story that has enough twists to entertain even the most well-read mystery fans. More even than about catching the killer, the book is about family, about what makes a murderer, and about the traces that leaves, not just to the victims and their families, but to the murderer’s own family.

    more from this reviewer

    Detective D. D. Warren is called to work on a horrendous crime s

    Detective D. D. Warren is called to work on a horrendous crime scene with a signature rose left at the scene but a killing technique that is a shocker! Having to visualize such a scene is bad enough but soon D.D. returns to the scene where she herself is viciously attacked and shot off her gun three times. Although she is physically recovering from the event, in excruciating pain beyond description, she pursues two directions. One is fulfilling the orders of her superiors to see a psychiatrist, Dr. Adeline Glen; and the other is meeting with her peers to continue to solve the initial crime that has now occurred a second time.
    Dr. Adeline has her own problems, the first being an inability to feel any physical pain whatsoever. While that might seem terrific, in reality it’s a huge risk because she has to monitor against infection or the breaking of any body parts several times a day. Feeling is a protective device against any external or internal threat to the body. What would it be like to be lacking such an essential part of one’s internal defense system?
    Add to Dr. Adeline’s dilemma the fact she has a psychopathic sister, Shana, who is serving a life prison sentence. She’s the emotional opposite of her Adeline. Shana seethes with unbridled hate against her sister. Adeline has no idea why she committed vicious murders both outside and inside prison. Their father, by the way, was the famous Harry Day, who killed woman and buried them under the floor boards of their home, that is until the day he was killed by another family member.
    With all of this mayhem continuing and now connecting all of these characters and two other critical people, detectives and D. D. are attempting to discovery the identity of the Rose Killer. Ironically, one begins to believe it may be one of our main characters who is doing the killing, logically thinking. But logic is a liar over and over in this hair-raising tale. One feels the tension building by leaps and bounds as the story continues and ends with several solutions that the reader is in no way prepared for – phenomenal!
    Lisa Gardner writes a novel that is thriller, crime fiction, paranormal tale, and mystery that clearly marks her as a professional in her trade and one to follow avidly. Stunning, mind-boggling, amazing novel, Ms. Gardner!

    Read nothing except "Fear Nothing" before reading anyt

    Read nothing except "Fear Nothing" before reading anything else. I have read and loved every one of Lisa Gardner's work . "The Neighbor", "Live to Tell", "Love You More", "Catch Me", "Touch & Go", and now "Fear Nothing" have all received A or A+ ratings from me! That is high praise from an avid reader of 3 to 5 books a week. I am so pleased that this author has continued to live up to my high standards. I can't say that about most of my other FORMERLY favorite authors. They're pumping out  so many books so quickly they seem like they're written by someone else. I read Gillian Flynn's "Gone Girl" when it first came out over a year ago and every book paled by far in comparison until "Fear Nothing". It's VERY rare that I'll pay for a hard cover on its first day out which I do with Gardner's books. Keep up the great work and stick to your high standards, Lisa; no pressure right!? :)

    Gosh I love Lisa Gardner books. Especially the D.D. Warren stories. I can't believe how fast this
    book went. Fear Nothing is filled with mystery, intrigue and a little bit of horror. It is a mystery not easily solved. Definitely not the kind of mystery where you are guessing who did it halfway through the book. D.D. Warren is a recurring character which also brings other recurring characters along with her. I can't say enough good things about this story. I can't wait for the next installment of D.D. Warren.
