Book Description

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.

One

Lucy’s graduation ceremony was being held outside on the high school’s football field. On the cusp of adulthood, nine hundred eighteen-year-olds sat surprisingly still on the risers framing each side of the temporary stage. Dillon Kincaid shielded his eyes against San Diego’s morning sun, scanning the crowd for his family. He was late because of a last-minute psychiatric assessment of a prisoner who was being arraigned that afternoon.

The principal called the next graduate. “Monica Julian.” A tall, lithe blond walked up the steps to the platform and accepted her certificate.

Good. He hadn’t missed Lucy receiving her diploma. He’d keep an eye on the audience for the largest burst of applause, and that would be where the Kincaid clan had saved him a seat.

The principal went through fifteen more names before announcing, “Lucia Kincaid.”

Dillon smiled, anticipating his beautiful dark-haired baby sister walking up the stairs. She’d worked hard for her grades, and her acceptance to their father’ s alma mater of Georgetown was icing on the cake. He heard a loud raucous cheer in the middle of the right seating section, saw the tallest Kincaid, Connor, standing and hooting.

Circling the field and making his way to where his family cheered, Dillon watched the stage for his sister.

“Lucia Kincaid?” The principal repeated her name and Dillon stopped to scan the graduates. Where was Lucy? He reached the edge of his family’s row of seats as Carina emerged.
 
“Robert P. Kinney.” The principal went on to the next graduate.
 
“I’m going to look for Lucy,” Carina told Dillon when she spotted him. Her fiancé, Nick Thomas, was right behind her.
 
Dillon fell into step next to Nick while Carina made a beeline for the nearest girls’ restroom. She’d graduated from the same high school fourteen years before and knew the campus well. Wearing graduation robes, two girls came out, adjusting their hats. Carina asked, “Is Lucy Kincaid in there?”
 
“I don’t think so,” one responded.
 
Carina brushed past her and went into the girls’ room, calling Lucy’s name. “She’s not there,” she stated tersely when she came out.
 
“Is there another bathroom?” Nick asked.
 
“Way over on the other side of the field.”
 
“Let’s check it out.”
 
They crossed the field behind all the proud families.
 
“I can’t believe she ditched her own graduation!” Carina sounded both worried and angry.
 
“You don’t know that she did,” Dillon said. “There’s a logical explanation. Lucy could be sick.”
 
“And she didn’t come and tell us?” Carina frowned, picked up her pace. “No one’s seen her since eight o’clock this morning. She went to Becky’s house to get ready, saying she’d meet us here.”
 
“Carina,” Dillon said, “stop being a cop for a minute. Don’t assume the worst.”
 
“I can’t help it.”
 
Dillon had the same fears as his sister. Both siblings worked with violent predators every day—Carina as a homicide detective catching killers, Dillon as a forensic psychiatrist trying to understand them. The two had been sent down their career paths by the murder of their nephew. Justin Stanton would also have been graduating today had he not been murdered eleven years ago.
 
Carina took a deep breath as she walked under the bleachers and toward the restrooms. A group of male graduates was smoking cigarettes around the corner.
 
“They’re at the ‘N’s now. You’d better get back,” Carina told them.
 
“Whatever,” one of the kids dismissed her. Carina glared at him, and Dillon pulled her back, reminding her what was important. “Let’s find Lucy.”
 
The restroom was vacant except for a mother and daughter.
 
Standing outside the restroom, Carina said to no one, “Where is she?”
 
“You said she went to Becky Anderson’s this morning, right? The petite blond girl who was at her birthday dinner?”
 
Carina nodded. “She’s in the third row on the left.”
 
“Let me go talk to her. You and Nick check the campus.”
 
Carina looked like she was about to argue with
him—Dillon knew she wanted a crack at interrogating Becky—but he held firm and Nick guided Carina toward the parking lot.
 
Dillon walked over to the graduates’ seating. He spotted Becky halfway down the third row and waved to catch her attention.
 
A teacher approached. “I’m afraid I’m going to have to ask you to leave. You can speak to your daughter after the ceremony.”
 
Dillon cringed. He might technically be old enough to be Lucy’s father, but he knew Lucy was sensitive to being much younger than her six siblings.
 
“I just need to talk to Becky Anderson. It’s important.”
 
“I’m afraid that’s not possible.”
 
Dillon caught Becky’s eye and motioned her to come over. She started down the aisle, her face revealing that she knew exactly why Dillon was asking to speak with her.
 
“Sir—” the teacher began.
 
“This is about a missing girl. I have to speak with Becky.”
 
Without giving the teacher another word, Dillon took Becky by the arm and led her away from the crowd.
 
The petite eighteen-year-old had guilt written all over her face.
 
“Do you know why I want to talk to you?” Dillon asked, trying to maintain calm while his concern over Lucy continued to grow.
 
“I—” Becky bit her lip. “I don’t know why Lucy’s late.”
 
“An hour late?” Dillon asked.
 
“Well, I . . . she’ll be here,” Becky said lamely.
 
“What happened after Lucy arrived at your house this morning?”
 
“Um, she didn’t.”
 
What?” Dillon exclaimed. “Where was she going?”
 
“Please, you don’t understand.”
 
“I need the truth, Becky. Now.”
 
“She went to meet someone.”
 
“Who?”
 
“A friend.”
 
“Name?”
 
“Trevor Conrad.”
 
Dillon frowned. “That doesn’t sound like one of her boyfriends.” But he admitted to himself that he’d been too busy lately to keep up with Lucy’s love life.
 
“He’s in college.”
 
Dillon tensed. He didn’t like where this conversation was going. “Where did she meet him?”
 
“Starbucks. The one right around the corner,” she added as if that made it safe. “We always go there.”
 
“And you lied for her?”
 
“I didn’t really lie,” Becky said.
 
Dillon raised an eyebrow, but didn’t have to say anything.“ Lucy knew everyone would throw a fit if they found out she met someone on—” Becky shut her mouth.
 
“Online?” Dillon prodded.
 
Becky nodded.
 
Dillon pulled out his cell phone and dialed Lucy’s number.
 
Hola! It’s Luce. I’m either talking or sleeping!
Leave a message. Adios.
 
“Lucy, it’s Dillon. Call me as soon as you get this message. It’s important.”
 
He hung up.
 
“What do you know about Trevor Conrad?” Dillon asked Becky.
 
“He goes to Georgetown. He’s a freshman and from Los Angeles. Lucy met him through an online group at Georgetown. It’s all legitimate. You have to be a student to join. She’s not stupid.”
 
She doesn’t have to be stupid to be in danger.
 
Dillon was now as concerned as Carina had been earlier. Trevor Conrad may be a student at Georgetown and still a threat. Or he could be impersonating a student. Dillon needed to get to Starbucks as soon as possible and talk to the staff.
 
“When was Lucy supposed to meet this Trevor?”
 
“Nine,” she said.
 
“Is there anything else you’re not telling me, Becky?”
 
She bit her lip, tears rolling over her lashes. “She promised to meet me here fifteen minutes before graduation started. I don’t know what happened. Lucy should be here by now. I’m so sorry.”
 
 
 
Lucy regained consciousness when a reverberating motor changed pitch. Her eyelids wouldn’t open, her limbs were numb, and she was bone cold. She shifted and discovered she’d been tied to a metal pipe.
 
She was sitting in a low puddle of ocean water, its distinctive salty aroma permeating her senses, waking her fully. The low rumble of a motor and the rise and fall of the floor told her she was on a boat. It wasn’t a big boat, she could tell, but it was big enough to have a couple of rooms beneath the deck.
 
Her new suede jacket—the one Carina had given her for high school graduation—was torn. Lucy felt a flap of material hanging from...

5.0 out of 5 stars Allison Brennan steps up to the plate March 28, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With the final novel in the series, however I sincerely hope she will give us the stories of the other three Kincaids, Jack, a mercenary, Patrick, a computer genius, and Lucy, the youngest who is center stage in FEAR NO EVIL. There is also the undercover agent, Mick, I would love to know his story. As you can tell there are alot of intersting secondary characters in this novel.

Kate Donovan is a renegade FBI agent. For five years she has hunted the man who murdered her partner, Paige Henshaw, on a live internet telecast. Betrayed by the bureau when they were left without backup. Her boyfriend and her best friend both died. Trask, the mastermind behind the telecast of the rape and murder has been on the run. But he has not forgotten the woman who has thwarted him. His hatred for women has put her at the top of his list of most wanted victims.

Dillion Kincaid is a forensic physchiatrist. He has dealt with the darkness of many sociopaths. But this one has made it personal. Dillion and his family of cops and agents have 48 hours to find and save their sister, Lucy. She has been kidnapped and taken to an unknown location where she is raped and brutalized for the preverted animals willing to pay to watch.

This is a dark thriller with sense of urgency, I was not able to put it down. The menace of Trask and his genius is very evident. The horror of the things Lucy faces is brutal. I very much enjoyed the book and I hope we do get the story of all the wonderful characters in the book. If you read the others in the series SPEAK NO EVIL, and SEE NO EVIL you will recognize the characters from those books here.

If you like a dark, violent, thriller this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the trilogy April 5, 2007
By Janet
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was my favorite of the Evil trilogy because the reader got to know all the Kincaids in books 1 and 2 and they played prominent parts in book 3. We even got to meet and love the mysterious Jack Kincaid. Making Lucy, a character readers came to know and like, the victim of the vicious villain upped the suspense and scare level.

This was an edge of your seat, can't put down thriller with an intelligent and romantic love story thrown into the mix.

Warning - this isn't for the faint of heart. Some, many, scenes are brutal, violent, and very frank. It was scary, but a very enjoyable read. Allison Brennan is one of the best romantic suspense authors I have read and I can't wait for her next trilogy.

Now I can catch up on the sleep I missed while I couldn't put Fear No Evil down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dire six stars story July 5, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The gruesome story of men or women that harass teenagers is really repulsive. We need to harp our children and ourselves to be very careful with all the chats in the internet with people either they know them or not. I can't tell you that this is a nice story but definitively a must read and learn of it.

Now let's start counting stars:

1 The book'll thrill you from the first page till you finish it. Including the very last page. This mean that the book never goes out of the main plot.

2 You'll see that the police, FBI, CIA or whatever not always are to "Serve and protect" but to do only their prime job.

3 This awesome story is a reality and we must open our eyes to see it. You'll have to learn how to protect your family and friends.

4 Writing about this heinous subject and at the same time thrilling you with the police work is not an easy task.

5 The story is so well written you won't be able to close the book till the end.

6 Because is a really good book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing August 12, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I don't know why this book disturbed me so much, but it did. Maybe it's because we'd gotten to know the Kincaid family over the past two books, and I was a bit surprised to see the brutality leveled at so many of them. Regardless though, it made me very disturbed.

This series was my first try with Allison Brennan. However, while the books were well-written, they were way too graphic and violent for my tastes. A good story can still be told without that level of violence, or such graphic storytelling.

I don't think I'll be checking out anything more of hers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Hit for Allison Brennan! May 27, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The third installment in the Evil Trilogy did not disappoint. We were first introduced to members of the Kincaid family in books one and two, Speak No Evil and See No Evil. This book brings them all together after their little sister Lucy is kidnapped by a sadistic predator. These book are not for the faint at heart, there is explicit violence and sex. But they are contemporary and bring in to play the potential threats of the Internet as a social playground. This book also introduces another Kincaid brother, Jack, who needs a book all to himself! I hope this author continues with the exploits of the Kincaid family.

5.0 out of 5 stars tense romantic suspense thriller April 5, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Five years ago, FBI Agent Kate Donovan and her partner Paige were after Trask who has been putting on shows on the internet for $50,000 a pop for users who want to see a woman raped, tortured, or killed. Paige and Kate thought they have himcornered but they have no back-up as was promised. Trask kidnaps and kills Paige, and kills Kate's lover. For the next five years she has used all her computer and hunting skills to find him.

Five years later Trask is still putting on his shows and his latest victim is Lucy Kincaid. Lucy's brother Dillon a psychiatrist and he his brother Jack track Kate to her mountain hideaway in Mexico. Dillon persuades Kate to let them help her find Lucy before the time limit is up. Working together Dillon and Kate realize they are falling n love, but first they have to save Lucy and catch Trask; two situations that could end in their deaths.

FEAR NO EVIL is a tense romantic suspense thriller in which the relationship between the two heroes is beautifully woven throughout the save Lucy storyline. Allison Brennan rotates perspectives between several characters, allowing readers to know what motivates them. The author cleverly imbues in the plot the danger of meeting someone from an online site and emphasizes the point subtly and cleverly several times throughout the latest Kincaid war against evil tale.

A former consultant in the California State Legislature, Allison lives in northern California with her husband, five kids, and assorted pets.

She's currently writing two series, the Lucy Kincaid/Sean Rogan thrillers and the Maxine Revere mysteries. Visit her website for more information.

Dear Reader:

Like most writers, I am an avid reader. I started light - Encyclopedia Brown, Trixie Belden, Nancy Drew - but by the time I was eleven, I'd discovered my mom's vast Agatha Christie and Ed McBain collections.

But two things happened on my way to becoming a mystery writer.

First, I discovered Stephen King.

As a thirteen-year-old book fanatic, I learned about page-turners early. I wrote Stephen King a fan letter after reading THE STAND and told him I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. He wrote back and told me: "If you want to be a writer, write." Which I took to mean, why wait until I grew up?

My problem? I never finished anything I started. As soon as I was well into the story and had figured out what was going to happen, I became bored and started a new project.

In high school, I became fascinated with true crime, and it wasn't until college that I started reading my mom's romance novels. They hadn't appealed to me as a teenager, but as a "mature" twenty-one year old, I found them entertaining.

Nora Roberts, Linda Howard, and others introduced me to contemporary novels that didn't involve murder, dismemberment, or deranged clowns living in the sewer.

Over the next decade, I built a career, married, had five kids, but never stopped reading--or writing.

I soon discovered a wonderful blend of suspense and romance with the romantic suspense novels of Tami Hoag, Kay Hooper and Lisa Gardner, and knew exactly what I wanted to write. I could take my mystery reader background, my fascination with true crime, and my desire for a happily ever after, and blend it into a romantic thriller.

I love romance because I want a happy ending. True love should win over adversity, if the hero and heroine are worthy. They need to earn it, because nothing achieved easily is truly appreciated. But I also love intense thrills and chills because they are physical--fear causes the entire body to react, heart pounding, head thumping, hands shaking.

DEAD HEAT, a Lucy Kincaid Thriller, is available now. Coming in July is the next Moreno & Hart Mystery, HIT AND RUN, co-written with Laura Griffin. Spring 2015 will have COMPULSION, the second book in the Max Revere series.

Thank you to all my readers. I appreciate your feedback and enthusiasm.

~ Allison Brennan
