In No Good Deed, Lucy Kincaid understands the dangers of corruption. As an FBI agent, she has witnessed some very bad deeds committed by seemingly good people. That's why she's glad to see corrupt DEA Agent Nicole Rollins behind bars for murder, conspiracy, and gunrunning. But when Rollins makes a daring escape - jeopardizing a busload of children and killing five officers - Lucy becomes the key to the biggest manhunt in Texas history...and the target of a brilliant killer.
Some believe Rollins has fled the country. But Lucy suspects her plan is far more sinister - a taunting game of cat and mouse that hits much closer to home. First an FBI agent with a connection to Texas is killed in Washington. Then Kane Rogan disappears on a mission. When Rollins ups the ante again, Lucy is determined to save the people she loves - before her enemy strikes again. Time is running out. The body count is rising. Rollins wants more than revenge - she wants to destroy everything Lucy holds dear....

"The Lucy Kincaid/Sean Rogan novels just keep getting better!" (RT Book Reviews)
The storyboard complex and interesting. The way the narrator portrayed Lucy made her out to be weak and hysterical. I am ordering another in the series, read by a different narrator, just to find out if the series is good.
The tone of voice the narrator used for everything except male characters was sugary, breathy and often ended in a questioning tone. She made the females sound weak and the overall narration very hard to listen to. I won't listen to anything else read by Ann Marie Lee.
I always enjoy Allison Brennan books, especially the Lucy Kincaid series. However I think I would have enjoyed No Good Deed more if I had read it and not listened. Narrator is way too dramatic and sometimes makes the female characters sound weak and whiny.
I enjoyed the continuation of the Kincaid series. However, the narrator was terrible. She read the book like she was presenting to a second grade class. The women were portrayed as whiny and weak. No real distinction between the male character voices.
Too many references & going over what happened in the prior book made this longer than it should have been. Main character, Lucy, sounds like a whinny child with no confidence; her partners & team don't like her and don't seem to want her around. Her own family can't trust her emotions. I really expected her to be stronger and an asset to the family by now.
Really disappointed after all the great reviews for this author. The reader was hard to listen to and the story was the same old, same old. Maybe it's me, but there was nothing new here I could see or appreciate.
