Overview

Fear No Evil (Evil Series #3) by Allison Brennan

In cyberspace, no one can hear you scream.

Instead of preparing for her high school graduation, Lucy Kincaid is facing a vicious execution. Lured by an online predator, she’s destined to die horribly–live on the Internet–while hundreds of heartless viewers watch and vote on the method of her slaughter. Her family’s only hope rests with Kate Donovan, an FBI agent who took on the same sadistic killer once before . . . and lost. Blamed for another girl’s gruesome murder, Kate’s been fighting to clear her name. But she agrees to join the hunt for Lucy–and reluctantly steps back into her worst nightmare.

With time running out before the bloody webcast airs, Kate teams up with forensic psychiatrist Dillon Kincaid to get inside the head of her twisted quarry, zero in on his chamber of horrors, and reach Lucy before grim history repeats itself and another innocent’s brutal death goes hideously live.

Face the fear. Speak its name. See its face.

intriguing, tension-filled, 'can't put this book down' read.  Brennan did not waste a minute before drawing one deep into the story and keeping the emotional anxiety and 'edge of your seat' suspense at a razor's edge.  Brennan rounded off the story by throwing in just a touch of romance. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

using his might and his gun.  Dillon is a perfect example of how attractive an intelligent man can be.  With his strong sense of self-worth, strength of will, reasonableness, and good looks, Dillon came across as the kind of man you want to stand by your side and guard your back in a crisis. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

line, featuring a remorseless villain who kidnaps young women to feature their rape and death on a live webcast.  Kate has been chasing Trask (the villain) for five years and when Trask kidnaps Dillon's youngest sister, Lucy, they unite forces (even though Kate was initially unwilling) to find Trask and save Lucy.  The story included plenty of twists and turns regarding the investigation as well as addressing the distant relationship between brothers. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Several emotions were aroused during the telling of this book.  {1} Aghast horror at the rape scenes.  This book will be impossible for some to read because of the realistically portrayed actions of the villain and his henchmen to Lucy (even though Brennan did an excellent job of restricting the details about the rape to its emotional devastation rather than to its graphic description).  {2} Compassion towards the entire Kincaid family as they witness this brutality to their sister.  {3} An emotional connection to Dillon and Kate as they weave their way into your heart. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  Romance: 1.5: The romance factor of this book definitely took a back seat to the suspense.  It took a while for Dillon and Kate to became aware of each other (probably because of the heinous nature of the villain they were facing).  But once Dillon and Kate found that they were deeply attracted and emotionally invested in the other, there was no hem-hawing around -- bam -- they were in love. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  Sensuous: 2.0: Brennan included a heated, spicy, emotional love scene to solidify the connection between Dillon and Kate.  Thankfully, Dillon was strong enough to command his own place in the twosome and not let Kate's overwhelmingly strong personality subdue his more laid back sense of self. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

in her books, chapter by chapter.  But in *Fear No Evil* the reader is mired in fear and tension almost from the get go -- because the horror Lucy is facing and that digital counter is always present in the back of your mind.  Yes, the suspense factor in the story continues to increase but that underlying fear and sympathy for Lucy hardly ever diminishes. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

 5.0: Brennan is particularly skilled at including wonderfully written secondary characters.  Brennan richly details the villain's boyhood and mindset as well as supporting his reign of terror with two henchmen: {1} Roger Morton and {2} Denise Arno.  The supporting cast of good guys that added a rich flavor to the story included: {1} Jack Kincaid, {2} Lucy Kincaid, {3} Connor Kincaid, {4} Carina Kincaid, {5} Patrick Kincaid, {6} Quinn Peterson, {7} Jeff Merritt, {8} Mick Mallory, and {9} Abigail "Abby" Resnick. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
