Book Blurb

FEAR NEVER DIES Theodore Glenn loves to inflict pain . . . both on his victims and on those who later find the mutilated corpses. At his trial seven years ago, Glenn vowed vengeance on Detective Will Hooper, the cop who nabbed him, and beautiful Robin McKenna, the stripper whose testimony put him behind bars. When a catastrophic disaster sets Glenn free, he blazes a freshly bloodied path across San Diego County. But the death he craves most is Robin McKenna’s. Putting aside their past troubled relationship, Will rushes to protect Robin, now a savvy businesswoman operating an upscale club. As the killings mount and Glenn proves a master manipulator, Robin and Will become snared in a twisted web of horror. But the shocking truth is even worse: The evil they are to face is even deadlier than they fear.

My Thoughts

I have always enjoyed Allison Brennan's books, and this one is no different. The introduction to the characters was smooth and they were well developed. The story starts by showing us what happened in the trial. It then flashes forward 7 years and follows Theodore Glenn in prison.. Then it all changes when he is able to escape and then has a chance to get revenge.

You could feel the pull between Will and Robin from the beginning, even though they were completely denying the fact to themselves. I thought that them having a past and all of a sudden getting back together would irritate me, but it was well written and believable. You knew the "Bad guy" from the beginning, but it made for a very interesting story to be able to experience things through him also. In addition, there was enough of a twist towards the middle that made me want to keep reading.

I didn't find anything overly frustrating in this book.. at least nothing that I constantly was like "Really, are you serious". It is well written and I really enjoyed it.
