Fear No Evil by Allison Brennan
Fear No Evil by Allison Brennan is the third and final book in the No Evil trilogy.
I still don’t understand why these books are considered a trilogy, other than the titles. Yes, they all deal with the Kincaid family, but apparently so do some of her other books. It’s not like this series has a topic that follows from one book to the next. This is another one that could be read as a stand-alone novel. Okay, all that being said, I loved it, and think it’s the best of the series!
When 18-year old Lucy Kincaid misses her graduation, the family is on alert. There is no way she would miss this event. They quickly determine she has been kidnapped by an online predator. Unfortunately, the man known as Trask has a bad reputation. Lucy’s image is soon displayed all over the internet, where her audience will pay to watch her being brutally raped again and again, with a clock counting down 48 hours to her death. The audience gets to vote on the method of her demise.
The Kincaids soon find they have an ally who has been tracking Trask’s movements for 5 years, and she is getting closer to finding him. Kate Donovan, a former FBI agent, wants Trask dead for killing both her lover and her partner. She wants to work alone. She is willing to put her own life on the line if it will mean Trask dies and Lucy lives. Lucy’s brothers Dillon, Patrick, Connor and Jack are all willing to do the same.
This book was really good, hard to put down. Definitely a lot of action, and as brutal as the subject was, Brennan did a good job of taking your mind off the rape and into another direction. As well, although I am not a romance reader, and there was an element of it, the romance angle seemed natural, and not too contrived. Her characters are good, and you really end up liking this Kincaid family which Brennan created. She has a really good writing style, especially when it comes to dialog. Everything seems to flow. It also keeps you reading. A very fast-paced book.
Worth the read!
