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.
I’d never heard of Brennan, so when my boyfriend won this romantic suspense novel I must say I was dubious. I thought I wasn’t a massive fan of ‘romantic suspense’ novels – I like romances, and I like thrillers, mixing them both seems slightly strange to me.
It was the 3rd book in a series, so that also worried me – would I be missing stuff because I missed the previous 2 books?
But, from the first chapter, I knew I was going to love it. And I did.
This book is totally griping. Once I started it, I couldn’t put it down. Some parts are pretty nasty – there is some rape in there – but they’re there for a good reason, so add rather than detract from the story.
The series is just different stories about the Kincaid siblings, the MCs from the other two are in this, but minor characters.
I’ll definitely be reading more Allison Brennan novels – definitely the other two in this series, and any others she’s got.
