Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* In Gardner’s seventh Detective D. D. Warren thriller (following Catch Me, 2012), the Rose Killer is re-creating the crimes of Harry Day, a serial killer who kept the skin of his victims as a souvenir—153 vials of souvenirs. Day’s legacy also includes two daughters. Shana distinguished herself at 14 as the youngest person in Massachusetts history to be tried for murder as an adult. A psychiatrist specializing in pain management, her sister, Adeline, was born with congenital insensitivity to pain. Detective Warren goes to see Adeline professionally, after she is injured at a crime scene. When she learns that Adeline is Harry Day’s daughter, she asks her to help identify anyone who would have been influenced by her father. The obvious suspect is Shana. But how could a woman who has spent the last decade in solitary confinement be responsible for these vicious mutilations and murders? In this strong addition to the series, Gardner retains her place on thrillerdom’s top tier. If they haven’t already discovered her, fans of Tess Gerritsen, Alafair Burke, and Meg Gardiner would love an introduction. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Gardner has a reserved seat on most best-seller lists, and she’ll be claiming her spot once again. --Karen Keefe

- Kirkus (starred review)

"Lisa Gardner delivers an intelligent, sophisticated, psychological thriller in her latest installment “Fear Nothing”...Gardner continues to show why she is on the short list of top thriller writers today."
Suspense Magazine

"Lisa Gardner is her absolute best in Fear Nothing." -

“Lisa Gardner, the master of the psychological thriller, has delivered another tour de force with Touch & Go, which exposes the raw nerves of a family imploding, and an investigator trying to escape her past….Gardner does an amazing job of creating realistic situations and characters with emotional resonance.

“Gardner’s sixth Det. D.D. Warren thriller grabs from the get-go.”

Huffington Post on Catch Me

“New York Times best-selling author Gardner always plays in the big leagues, but this scare-your-socks-off thriller is a grand slam, packed with enigmatic characters (some good, some crazily evil), expert procedural detail, and superb storytelling.”

“Gardner has become one of the best psychological thriller writers in the business. The compelling characters, the shocking plot and the realistic atmosphere of how police operate make this a "must read" for any suspense aficionado.”
— Associated Press on Catch Me

More About the Author

New York Times #1 bestselling crime novelist Lisa Gardner began her career in food service, but after catching her hair on fire numerous times, she took the hint and focused on writing instead. A self-described research junkie, she has parlayed her interest in police procedure, cutting edge forensics and twisted plots into a streak of thirteen bestselling suspense novels, including her most recent release, Catch Me.

Readers are invited to get in on the fun by entering the annual "Kill a Friend, Maim a Mate" Sweepstakes, where they can nominate the person of their choice to die in Lisa's latest novel. Every year, one Lucky Stiff is selected for Literary Immortality. It's cheaper than therapy, and you get a great book besides. For more details, simply visit Lisa's website.

Lisa lives in New England with her family, as well as two highly spoiled dogs and one extremely neurotic three-legged cat.

I am a die-hard Lisa Gardner Fan and have read every one of her mystery novels. It pains me to say that I just didn't enjoy her latest very much. D.D. Warren is one of my favorite Gardner characters, and she didn't disappoint--always hard-as-nails, going beyond the call of duty, this time with a debilitating injury that restricts every action and decision. However, the numerous repetitive passages killed the read for me. This one could have used a good editor to trim elements that became quite annoying as the book progressed.

Format: Hardcover
Fear Nothing by Lisa Gardner, the seventh in the detective D.D. Warren series, is a freshly-baked story that is a fast-paced and full of twists and turns, with interesting characters and heart-pounding edge of the seat action while keeping her signature formula intact. It is a suspenseful book with a sinister edge to it. This installment from the D.D. Warren series is simply absorbing.

In Fear Nothing, Warren suffers from an avulsion fracture when she is taken by surprise by an assailant at a crime scene. She is advised to speak to Dr. Adeline Glen, who is a pain specialist. As she is recovering from her injury, a serial killer is on the loose in the streets of Boston, whose MO bears striking resemblance to Adeline’s own sister.

Fear Nothing is a top-notch crime and psychological thriller that explores the issue of nature versus nurture debate which is quite interesting. It is the idea that certain things are genetic which is best reflected in Adeline. Daughter of a well-known killer who suggests blood is love, Adeline also battles her own demons that will leave readers shuddering.

What is particularly fascinating about Lisa Gardner’s novels is her sweeping portrayal of her characters who are totally different from each other. Think of the main protagonist, and other characters like Adeline and Shana – they are poles apart. Fear Nothing has a serial killer who removes people’s skin and a woman prisoner who is a psychopath. If you loved her earlier books, you will love this one too. Lisa Gardner doesn’t disappoint! She keeps you guessing to the very end.

It was one of the worst, most preposterous books I have read in a long, long time. And, this is coming from a long-time Lisa Gardner book who has read and loved every book she has ever written. In a genre where female characters often do silly things, I always appreciated the fact that Ms. Gardner's characters never made me want to shake my head and scream, "No thinking, rational person would EVER do that!" No more. It wasn't just Adeline either. I really liked the Warden (?) character--She seemed smart and capable. and I was definitely interested in knowing more about her...Right up until she was part of a scene that was so unbelievable it bordered on flat-out absurd. I am not often frustrated by a book but I was this one. I expect a smartly written book when I read a Lisa Gardner book and this just wasn't it. Very disappointed.

*Contains some Spoilers*

This is one of the worse D.D. Warren novels. It is so full of plot holes it is not even funny. First, D.D. was suppose to have an injured arm. She says her pain is at a "14" on a 1-10 scale. However, it seems miraculously a day or two later she is running to crime scenes, she Is bending down to pick up evidence. This from a woman who couldn't even poor a cup of coffee for herself. Second, we never do find out why the killer was singing the lullaby "Rock a bye Baby." I thought that might give us some insight into the killer, but it never did. Next, we never do find out the significance of the crime scene (the rose, the champagne, the cuffs). My only guess is that the killer wanted to make a "trade mark" for himself. There are other avenues the detectives explored such as going to the morgue and seeing if any workers had an "interests" in corpses but that never seemed like it was fully explored (like they just dropped it). Also, they said that the killer probably had hunting experience or experience in the medical field. However, our killer didn't have either of those things. I don't know if that was a red herring to throw us off, or Jackson forgot about that clue. Overall, I am willing to suspend believe for some of these things, but it seems like a good chunk of things were just thrown in the story and never explained! I was also disappointed with who the killer was. I felt like his "motive" was really lacking. I wish she would have went a different direction with this book because the premise was really good at first.

Disclaimer: My sincere thanks to NetGalley and The Penguin Group - Dutton for providing me with a complimentary e-book copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

My Review: Lisa Gardner is well known for her suspenseful reads filled with interesting characters, twists and turns as well as some edge of your seat action thrown in for good measure. This book doesn't disappoint.

This wasn't my first time reading a book in Gardner's D.D Warren series but this is definitely my favourite book featuring D.D. While it had Ms Gardners' signature suspenseful writing it also had a very sinister, eerie feel to it. Yup. It was ultra creepy {inner shiver} and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire read.

Lisa Gardner is not only known for her suspenseful writing but she's also known as being very adept at letting her readers really get to know her characters. She doesn't write one-dimensional characters that are easy to predict. D.D, Adeline and Shana were all very detailed characters, each with their own very distinct issues and voices within the book. Readers get glimpses into the characters' lives, motivations, thoughts and actions but at the same time the momentum of the storyline never feels bogged down. The mark of a great suspense writer.

In "Fear Nothing", Gardner addresses the 'nature versus nurture' issue but within a very chilling context and I was quite riveted throughout the entire book. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep this reader from guessing 'whodunnit' until very close to the end.


My Rating: 4/5 stars
