Speak No Evil

22 Feb

Favorite Lines: “As he packed up his laptop, Nick realized that Steve didn’t think of himself as a thirty-eight-year-old man. He held close to the image that he was a young, twenty-one-year old war hero who fit in at college.” (156)

Alright, before you read this you have to check out Allison Brennan’s site. She has a great trailer posted for her latest series of three books: Speak No Evil, See No Evil, and Fear No Evil. Brennan maintains a blog that can be reached off of her index page as well.

Speak No Evil is a walk on the darker side of life. It is a romantic suspense about Detective Carina Kincaid’s investigation into a young woman’s brutal murder. Her prime suspect enlists the aid of his brother, Nick Thomas, who happens to be a Sheriff from Brennan’s previous series The Hunt. The two work together to determine the identity of the killer while creating an intimate relationship.

If you like suspense this is a great book for you. The book has a few graphic passages such as the one depicting foreign objects used torturing the victim, but they are not dwelt on. It’s well crafted and fans of Brennan will enjoy this book. Nick and Carina are both dealing with emotional issues that are neatly addressed throughout the book.

I’m thankful for Brennan writing a book that kept the killer from me for over half of the book. (There is nothing worse than knowing the plot before the first half of the book is read!)

See No Evil will be released on Feb. 27, 2007. I can assure you that it will be on my To Buy list.

    Are you a Brennan fan? Who would you liken her style to? I’ve seen these in the bookstore but have so far resisted. While I’ve made a dent in my TBR recently, I still have alot of books to read. You can’t keep tempting me like this!

    Rosie-I’m not sure who she reminds me of. The writing is not flowery. The romance seems to be the secondary story. I read The Hunt and really didn’t think about Brennan again. I liked the plot. For me the best part of this book is the killer. If I hadn’t read the intro to the next book I prob. wouldn’t be getting it.
