During the course of the investigation Will met and fell in love with Robin McKenna. She was one of the strippers at RJ's, Theodore glenn killed four other strippers who were her friends before he was caught. The last one was her roommate. Robin found her and has nightmares still, about falling over the body and sliding through the blood.
Will is a detective with the SFPD, he is divorced and has only had short affairs with other women since he lost Robin. Will lost her trust when he didn't believe her about Glenn. She never had an affair with him. Will finds that the news of Glenn's escape brings back all the feelings for Robin and when he sees her, he knows he will do everything he can to protect her and if he is lucky win her back into his arms.

She opened her heart to him and thought he trusted her, but his questions about her relationship with Glenn destroyed what trust and love she had for him. 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 ›
First off, though this is book one in the Prison Break Trilogy, Ms. Brennan puts a lot of cross-over characters into her novels. Will Hooper actually made multiple appearances in the No Evil Trilogy, and for that reason I'd suggest reading 'Speak No Evil' first, which is his partner's story. Even better, I'd recommend reading all her stories chronologically since each one is thrilling in its own right and there are so many people you'll recognize from previous books. No worries though if you'd prefer not to, as this can definitely be read as a standalone.
Killing Fear was a thrilling read which immediately grabbed my attention. At the start of this story I had a super hard time putting it down and figured it was a a five-star book for sure. However, although it was fast paced and never boring, I never really felt connected to either Will or Robin's characters. Glenn on the other hand, was a truly chilling individual whose obsession with Robin gave me the creeps. In the end I thought it was a very compelling romantic suspense, one I'm happy to have read and would easily recommend.
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.
