Recommends it for: anyone who enjoys suspense
4 stars for a great suspense thriller by Canadian author Rick Mofina. This is the first novel by this author that I have read and it did not disappoint me.

Every Fear explores what happens when a child is abducted and the mother is involved in a hit-and-run and left for dead. The investigation and search for the abductors is examined from all angles--from the viewpoint of a reporter, a tough police investigator, the father of the abducted child and many other characters.

If I have any criticism ab

Every Fear is a fine example of Rick Mofina's very entertaining writing. All of his novels that I've read so far combine, in one story, Police Procedurals, Private Eye type investigations, Mystery, Suspense, a bit of Horror, with some Humour and Romance tossed in as well. The style will keep you reading and turning pages well past bedtime. Even late enough in the story that you have figured out the apparent culprit the twists will really keep your attention and for the most part ar

The second Rick Mofina book I have read in the last few months, and another good book from him. Maria Coulson has longed for a baby for years and was told she could never have one and by some miracle, she has Dylan, who is now 4 months old. Her world revolves around him. She takes him to the store and leaves him outside in his stroller with a teenage neighbour and when the young girl leaves him for one minute, he is snatched from the street and taken in a van at high speed, Marie is seriously in ...more

As with most Rick Mofina books, once I started reading it I wanted to keep on going until the story was fully told. This book is the second one featuring Jason Wade, a reporter for a Seattle newspaper struggling to stay ahead in the ratings battle for news. His boss Spangler is just plain nasty and makes it very difficult for Justin to work in a way he feels is morally and ethically sound. I apparently read the first book of the series in 2012, but only have a vague recollection of the details. ...more

Mother Maria Colson dashes out of store to prevent baby from being kidnapped, but instead is hit by get away van. Badly injured Maria is in hospital fighting for her life a ...more

This novel was such a great read. It never gets boring as many crime books tend to and will keep the reader wanting to read more. It was well written and suspenseful, overall just a great read. Will definitely seek some more novels by this author.
So disappointed. Have given Rick Mofina 5 stars for all the books that I have read of his. This one doesn't quite hit the mark for me, but still, 4 stars is pretty damn good and so is this book
Rene Natan
Conflicts abound and interlace each other as the plot of Every Fear enrols. Seattle reporter Jason Wade has a hard time to keep at bay his nasty and incompetent boss; Maria Colson fight for her life; the police follow myriad leads in the attempt to rescue abducted baby Dylan Colson; muscular Axel, an ex-convict, has problems to ward off his girlfriend Nadine; the local police and the FBI argue over jurisdiction and nobody is above suspicion—not even the caring father of the baby.

Fast, good read.

very good
A fast read with plenty of suspense -- I really enjoyed it!
Carol Peace
Great book If you want to know what goes through a parents mind when their child is abducted you will be enlightened. Who has taken him and why? Grace Garner is the primary investigator on the case but why is everything not adding up. How much does the reporter Jason Wade seem to get to places of interest before Grace does.?
Who is the dead body that was found is it relevent to their investigation? and if it is then why? This book keeps you glued until the end and then some. Really enjoyable.
Not bad at all! The synopsis was a little misleading. Not enough of the 'underground of street girls, drug runners and pimps'(mentioned in the synopsis) to actually write that in, but the story-line was good, the twists imaginative, and the whole story played out really well. The characters weren't flat; you could feel the fear, agitation, hope and worry from the characters. The setting seemed real enough to feel like you're there with the characters. I believe I will pick up Book #1.
Fast paced read didn't want to put it down but spoilt in my opinion by a rushed ending.Still looking forward to the 3rd in the series though.
Excellent, good strong characters, terrific plot, Rick Mofina keeps on getting better. A great page turner.
Michelle Pannell
Great mystery - kept me guessing with some turns and twists. Will look for more by this author.
I couldn't put this book down. It kept you guessing all through the book.
Typical Mofina, nothing new and nothing that sets it apart
Fantastic edge of your seat book! Worth a read.
This book was ok.
