How can the characters in this year's True Detective be worse? Ferrill is asexual, drunk, corrupt, a child abuser and worse!
This is my favorite series in this genre and my favorite book in the series. It answers many mysteries concerning Harry Hole's history while exposing the detctive's peculiar genius.
This reader is my favorite, though I liked Robin Sachs. He does a brilliant job with the different voices, especially.a drunk Harry Hole.
This is the story of the case that made Harry famous, the Australian serial killer case.
In this 4th installment of the Gamache/3 Pines series we are witness to two extraordinary families. The wonderful and romantic marriage of inspector Gamache and the highly disfunctional family of one of 3 pines' most loved artists. In the end we are privy to one of life's great paradoxes and a pearl of great price.
Like its predecessors, A Rule Against Murder has rich characters in a wonderful setting. The mystery is fun, but it's conclusion is stunning. Much more than a murderer is discovered.
Treat yourself to any of these books and you'll find more than just an escape. You'll find happiness.
I listened to this just after finishing Broken Harbor by Tana French. In my review of that book I made reference to part of the story being far fetched. Perhaps I should have said inaccurate, because Fear Nothing may be strange subject matter, but it delivers remarkably entertaining suspense.
If you are familiar with the former great Indianapolis Colt coach Tony Dungy you may know his son Jordan has the same genetic disorder as the main character in this book. A while back, Dungy gave a speech entitled The Blessing of Pain, about his youngest son, Jordan, who has a rare condition that doesn’t allow him to feel pain. If you haven't read it, it's well worth your time to look it up online. In Fear Nothing, Gardner goes into great detail describing just how dangerous and cumbersome this defect really is.
Our heroine, D.D.Warren suffers a terrible injury that threatens her career. She's forced into months of excruciatingly painful physical therapy, which lands her in the care of Psychiatrist who specializes in pain management. Ironically this doctor has this genetic disorder that prevents her from feeling pain.
But that's not the doctor's only issue. She is the daughter of a notorious serial killer, long dead, and her big sister is in prison for following in their dad's footsteps. Through a series of murderous events, these two professional women are forced to hunt a serial killer bent on their destruction. It's complicated, but it works!
I found this novel fascinating and extremely entertaining. Gardner is not only a great writer, her research is impeccable.
