Chilling And Unexpected – “Fear Nothing” By Lisa Gardner


Title: Fear Nothing: A Detective D.D. Warren Novel

Author: Lisa Gardner

Publisher: Signet

Release Date: January 4th, 2014

Genre: Thriller/Mystery/Crime

Rating: 5/5 Stars


Seldom does a book get my attention as deeply as Lisa  Gardner’s work “Fear Nothing” had managed to do. Absolutely chilling, and superbly written, Mrs. Gardener used a very unique approach to tell this tale, by switching between third and first person, giving us a unique insight into the thought process of a seemingly straightforward, yet interestingly complicated, main character named Dr. Adeine Glen.

From the outside, Dr. Glen is a very sophisticated, highly functioning adult with a rare genetic infliction – she can not feel pain. Yet she manages her day to day life well, even if, added to her already disabling disease, she has not one, but two serial killers in her family.

When another serial killer surfaces, she works together with Boston Detective D.D. Waren to catch this madman.

The twists and turns of this book left me breathless and rooting for people I thought at first as evil, every page a surprise. Even though this book is a part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone book, as I have done. But be warned, once you read one book by Lisa Gardner, you will want to come back for more.

(Disclaimer: This book was NOT given to me by a publisher, as some of my other books are, in return for an honest review. )


Summer Reading List

Stephen King says it best:

“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”

Breathless For Him

2. Breathless For Him by Sofia Tate (a steamy romance)

The Tenth Chamber

3. The Tenth Chamber by Glenn Cooper (Thriller)

A Smart Girls Guide

4. The Smart Girls Guide To Getting Everything You Want (Self-Improvement)

Taken By Tuesday

5. Taken By Tuesday by Catherine Bybee (another steamy romance)

What are you reading this summer?


P.S. It would be interesting to jump into the Master Stephen King’s head for just a day – but on the other hand, this might be a scary place to be, what do you think? This is daily prompt post.
