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.

I love books!
Set in current day Boston, this is the seventh book in the Detective DD Warren (DD is a she) series. I've listened to and enjoyed all of them. Author Lisa Gardner has a great writing style. She comes up with good 'whodunnit' crime thrillers and really does a great job with creating some dastardly bad people. If you like this genre I highly recommend the series and, as always, I would start with book #1.
I have enjoyed the DD Warren series, but this one was too derivative of Gillian Flynn.
She even used the family name, Day, from the Gillian Flynn book and got into the same murder-abilia that happened in that book.
I think it was a tough job to do so many big female characters and try to give each one some distinctive aspect. I didn't know who I was listening to some of the time.
The role of the prison superintendent was built up as a red herring, and then let go. It didn't need that much build-up.
I was surprised to be disappointed by this book. Lisa Jackson has done much better.
I like this series but this was a disappointment. Very violent and ghoulish series of crimes, and the plot was repetitive. Narrator's presentation of one of the main characters was affected and annoying.
This story was excellent and in keeping with all of the previous Detective D.D. Warren novels.
I enjoy this book series because you become familiar with the main characters, and there is a continuing storyline among them throughout. However, you could also read each novel as a stand alone, but I would recommend reading the other D.D. Warren novels first. I find it interesting that even though D.D. is in every novel, the story is always from a different character's point of view.
DeeDee was more vulnerable than previous stories. The characters were complex and I enjoyed all the psycho-babble.
Silence of the Lambs and if I say more I'll ruin it for others.
The prison break!
I pretty much did listen to this in one sitting, I was done in 24 hours.
***Spoiler*** I was sad for the sisters. That day they had together was so wonderful but there was a foreboding and I knew it wasn't going to end well. Shanna was redeemed in many ways and I had hoped they would escape together or clear her name so the sisters could start a life together.So much for that but it was still a great book. Thank you Lisa Gardner, more please!
I usually like Lisa Gardner but this book starts out talking about a crime scene where the woman's skin was peeled off in strips and about a cat that the same thing happened too. I can't get pictures like that out of my mind, so I had to stop listening.
Yes I would, Ms Gardner tells a stories that keep you want to know more with no stoping,
I really like Kirsten Potter for me, She is D.D
I've read every Lisa Gardner book and liked all of them before Fear Nothing. Some people like very dark books, and they may like this one. For me this book has no redeeming qualities.. It is horrible.
I have loved Lisa Gardner's books, especially the most recent ones. This was a shocking and crushing disappointment. It was terrible. The story and the featured sisters were completely unbelievable. The plot was preposterous. The dialog was so bad it was embarrassing. I only kept going because I was hoping to get to the good part. It never happened. It just got worse and worse. Yuck!
