Fear Nothing: Detective D. D. Warren, Book 7 | [Lisa Gardner]

Fear Nothing: Detective D. D. Warren, Book 7

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.

Publisher's Summary

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 a previous crime scene: 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.

    Story
    "Fascinating look at a killer family!"

    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.

    Story
    "Absolutely amazing!"
    If you could sum up Fear Nothing in three words, what would they be?

    I waited eagerly for this book to come out, and it did not disappoint. Lisa Gardner's writing and plot development were outstanding. I was on the edge of my seat while listening to it, and crying at the end. Kirsten Potter did a fantastic job narrating the book. I highly recommend to anyone who likes murder mysteries.


    What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Fantastic narration. She has a calm, steady voice, with appropriate inflections and drama added. She doesn't try to create different voices for the characters, which is good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried at the end. For the injustice to one character, and the loneliness of another.


    Any additional comments?

    Read the whole series. The development of Detective D.D. Warren as a jealous former flame of bobby, to a hard ass, take no prisoners detective, to the softer side as wife, mother and victim is skillfully done.

    "Make sure you have some uninterrupted time! Enjoy"

    I've listened to all of Lisa Gardner's books and especially enjoyed the D.D. Warren series. This book doesn't concentrate so much on D.D., but instead told a great story of someone who cannot feel pain. No, the book is not realistic I suppose - but I wasn't reading True Crime. Yes it has a dark subject, but most murder mysteries do. If you listen for pleasure like I do, you'll love it. I really enjoyed the performance by Kirsten Potter.

    "Best of Lisa Gardners Books"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fear Nothing to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the paper copy so I have no comment.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book was dark and graphic. But the writing superior and the storyline strong. I did waiver on my initial thoughts on who done it but it turned out even with the twists and turns my first guess was right. Usually Lisa Gardner does a better job on the twist.

    Story
    "Gardner NEVER disappoints!"
    What made the experience of listening to Fear Nothing the most enjoyable?

    Gardner has a talent for grabbing you at the first word and DARING you to put the book down. Impossible. I wish she could write more books per year, but alas, her books are like cake. They both have to go through stages to become awesome!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked many things. But, I don't like spoilers, so lets just say...worth reading!


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Potter – was your favorite?

    Shana Day


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and would have, if sleep hadn't been necessary.

    "Another good book by Lisa Gardner"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Anyone who likes Lisa Gardner's style and the D D Warren series will not be disappointed


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to everyone of the books in this series. The protagonist in this story is very sad and has such a defeatist attitude through out you can see early on that the ending is not going to be a happy one, although I did hope right up until the epilogue. I won't say anymore as I don't want to spoil this for any other readers. Kirsten Potter as always did a great job. Her range of voices is impressive and the characters are easily differentiated. Looking forward to the next...

    Story
    "a psychological thriller"

    Recovering from a fall down a flight of stairs at a crime scene Detective D.D. Warren is sent to Adeline Glen, M.D. a pain specialist. Warren is on medical leave but that does not stop her from investigating the case she when injured. The story alternates between third person chapters following D.D.’s investigation and first person narration chapters dramatizing Adeline’s point of view. Gardner paints an indelible picture of two troubled sisters so closely bound together by blood they agree: “Blood is love.” If the story has a theme, it’s pain: physical, emotional and psychological. I guess this type of book is called a psychological thriller. Gardner tells a story full of suspense, and twisting story line to keep on reading. My only complaint is this turned out to be a story about a serial killer both past and present. I am so tired of reading about serial killers I attempt to avoid them, somehow, when selecting this book to read I did not realize it was about a serial killer otherwise it was a suspense story. Kristen Potter did an excellent job narrating the story.

    "Couldn't finish it"
    Any additional comments?

    I have read and enjoyed Lisa Gardner's other D.D. Warren books, but I had to stop listening to this one after only about two hours. In most murder mysteries, the murder is described just once and it's over. In this case, the repeated descriptions of the postmortem injuries inflicted on victims made me cringe so much that I found this book an unpleasant experience and I had to stop listening.

    "Best ever"

    Amazing, I never saw it coming. Awesome story. From a philosophical perspective: the best she ever wrote. It was intelligent, sweet and sad and explores new meanings for the word love.

    "Painful to listen to"

    I've read a couple of Lisa Gardner's DD Warren books before and enjoyed them, but I'm finding this audiobook painful to listen to. I'm only about a tenth of the way through, but I'm writing the review now because I might end up returning this book -- the narration is that bad. I find it slow and unengaged, with limited emotional breadth that does nothing to draw me into the stories or the characters. Still, I'm going to put this book aside and get back to it later. It could be that it pales in comparison to other great audiobooks, and might sound better after a short break.
