Review: Fear Nothing ( A Detective D.D. Warren Novel ) by Lisa Gardner



My name is Dr. Adeline Glen. Due to a genetic condition, I can’t feel pain. I never have. I never will. 
The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear. . . . She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work.

My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she did as a free woman.

Six weeks later, a second woman is discovered murdered in her own bed, her room containing the same calling cards from the first: a bottle of champagne and a single red rose. The only person who may have seen the killer: Detective D. D. Warren, who still can’t lift her child, load her gun, or recall a single detail from the night that may have cost her everything.

Our father was Harry Day, an infamous serial killer who buried young women beneath the floor of our home. He has been dead for forty years. Except the Rose Killer knows things about my father he shouldn’t. My sister claims she can help catch him. I think just because I can’t feel pain doesn’t mean my family can’t hurt me. 

D.D. may not be back on the job, but she is back on the hunt. Because the Rose Killer isn’t just targeting lone women, he is targeting D.D. And D.D. knows there is only one way to take him down:

Fear nothing. 
 The author of Fear Nothing has outdone herself! Lisa Gardner has supplied for us avid readers a spine chilling book of murder and lies. I could not put this book down. Just about the time I thought I had the killer figured out, here comes another twist. The lady knows how to write suspense with a human touch. Her characters are strong and fully dimensional, down to the members of the team; The story flows and builds taking the reader along on the investigation. You think you know where it's going and who the villain is, but you're not certain and then Gardner reveals a new element to keep you off balance. The ending comes at you out of know where but it always explains the reason for the killer's actions.
The suspense was enough that I had to put the book down an hour before going to bed, so that I could unwind enough to sleep. When a book makes that kind of an impact on me...I'm impressed also liked that you were given just enough in the story to draw you in and keep you from putting the book down. She kept the interest going right to the end. Lisa Gardner is a phenomenal talent and this book is absolutely stunning. She deserves every jot of praise and acclaim she is pulling in. If you're looking for a book you can't put down, this is it. Gardner's debut is a "killer" and this reader can't wait to see what’s in store next time for
Detective D. D. Warren.
