Now Robin owns RJ's and it is an uptown night club. Very chic and understated the club has been rebuilt and refurnished while the area was undergoing a rejuvenation. However Robin still sleeps with the lights on.
When an unknown fault causes an earthquake at San Quention, Theodore takes the chance with many others and escapes.Read more ›
I had read Crystal's review on this one and had to pick it up. I'd read the previous trilogy and loved it, so this was pretty much a no-brainer. I'm glad I did.
Brennan has a way of creating fictional characters that seem absolutely real. I could feel Robin's fear, her courage, her motivation to be able to take care of herself. I could feel Will's determination to bring Glenn down.
And Glenn scared me - right out of the book, he scared me. I had never read a character as alive as this one; a sadistic sociopath with absolutely no remourse for what he's done or is about to do. His goal is to hurt Robin, a former stripper that saw Glenn for what he was and disliked him. He sees himself as above everyone else and hates Robin for choosing Will over him. He gave me the shivers!
And I agree with Crystal on the ending. Way too rushed! All of it squeezed into three chapters. Had it been stretched out a little with a little more action, this book would be a perfect 5-star. Excellent book! If you like thrillers, you'll love this book!
I can't wait to read about Patrick. He was mentioned so often, I can't help but think his story is coming soon. I really liked the excerpt from her next book. I'm more excited for that one than Killing Fear.
Robin McKenna has worked hard in the 7 years since she literally stumbled over her roommate's dead body. Working at RJ's strip club, Robin always believed that stripping was means to an end (you go, girl), not what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. The day Theodore Glenn came through RJ's doors is a day that she'd just as soon forget. Never quite liking him, but not knowing why, Robin kept her distance while her friends dated him one by one. Then stood by helpless as they were murdered. One by one. Absolutely certain that Glenn is the murderer, Robin takes the stand against him and helps put him away.
Now Theodore Glenn is out and Robin's former lover, Detective Will Cooper, is knocking on her door. Believing that she put their failed romance behind them, Robin is less than happy at the feelings Will can still invoke in her. As for Will, he is determined to protect Robin at all costs. It's only as he starts spending more and more time with her that Will realizes what an awful mistake he made all those years ago when he pushed Robin away.
Killing Fear is a page turner. From front to back, this book is action packed. Brennan did a bang-up job of writing a sociopathic character. For you readers who like your mystery along with a steamy romance, this one is a great one for you.
