A cunning killer hides in plain sight.

A troubled teenage girl has been charged with the grisly murder of her stepfather. The evidence is damning: Emily was found alone at the scene with blood on her hands, and an incriminating e-mail she wrote outlines a murder plot identical to the method of the brutal slaying.

I enjoyed this one. Have just finished the last in the trilogy and it was a bit of a letdown so better not let that colour my review of this one.

I really like the books in this series, but I need a pause to put my stomach in order!

I know that thre're some sick people out there, but to think in these books the vicious killers are teenagers! And that makes me sick...

I read this book biting my nails and really liked the suspense and the break-neack pace! Also the love story was very good!

If you want to enter into the mind of really twisted and sick people, I recommend the first in the series and this book too!

I have already read Books 1 and 3 in this trilogy, but wanted to read Book 2 as well. Although it is part of a trilogy it can be read as a stand alone book.

I enjoyed the MC's in this book as well as the plot. There are a lot of characters and some may seem more fleshed out if you had read Book 1 (or read it recently), but for the most part they are nicely developed in this novel. The plot is good but a little complicated due to the number of known and unknown characters.

There were a couple of

Very good! Even though this is a 2nd book in the series, it really does very well as a standalone. Young 16 year old Emily is about to be accused of horribly mutilating her step-father. After all her prints were on the scene and his blood was in her room.

Now the race begins for deputy district attorney, Julia Chandler to prove that her niece didn't commit this heinous crime. She enlist the aid of unwilling PI, Connor Kincade. 5 years ago she forced Connor, who at the time was a cop, to testify

Started this April 15th, 2014 just after finishing Speak No Evil.
The "Evil" series is very bloody, brutal and has a rather high body count.
Nonetheless I think these are the best books so far from Allison Brennan.
A few sex-scenes, a bit of romance, but I consider the last sex-scene as too long, and boring, all where non-kinky and while not distracting, where not very interesting, and rather as pause from all the sadistic killing, a necessary break.

Although the ending is again predictable, and in

Another good read, although I skipped through pages and pages of romance again.

I didn't enjoy it as much as Speak No Evil.

It took me a little while to get into this one and get the characters straight in my head. I had to keep flipping back to see who was whom.

We are told how the group were all brought together and why so many people had died, but for me it wasn't enough to really explain why they did what they did.

The ending left me feeling flat.

This is the second book in the "Evil" series (they're romantic suspense books), but you don't need to read the first in order to understand what's going on (I hadn't). The story and characters were interesting and there was lots of action as a group of vigilantes deliver their version of justice - however, I didn't like all those sections from the various antagonists. Lots of characters had screen time and I felt it diluted the main protagonists' stories and I'd rather been with them as they sol ...more

Well, what's scarier than a bunch of teenage serial killers? The leader who should know better, maybe!!!

Really enjoyed this book, Allison Brennan is a terrific writer with a mind that I just love.

We meet another Kincaid family member in this book - a very likable guy. A very hot scene (Kjen would love it), and a twisting tale with a red herring thrown in.

2 thumbs up and 5 stars - great read!

Anything she writes is worth reading, and this book was no exception. The plot was filled with twists and turns, the characters all had strong personalities, and the addition of romance all made the book what it was. I can't wait to read the last book in this series!

A favorite author. Like her writing style, her voice, the way she weaves romance into her gripping suspense stories.

See No Evil: 5.00:
Four sentences in this book struck a very personal chord, thus it became a very engrossing, moving, heart-felt story.

A great romantic suspense!

Julia’s niece is being charged with the gruesome murder of her stepfather. Julia is the deputy district attorney and knows that her niece would never kill anyone. In order to prove her niece’s innocence she asks Connor Kincaid, a PI with whom she has a rocky history, to help.

I really enjoyed this book. The suspense was gripping, the murder scenes and villains amazingly written, so well that I actually felt sad at the end of the book when 2 of them died.

I loved that

I managed to acquire the three books of this series without knowing what I was getting into. I'm going to finish the series, just because I started it, but I think that will be enough Brennan for me. You can see my review of the first and third books on GR, as well, but this one will say a lot of the same things.

Specific warning for this book: See No Evil contains graphic scenes of self-mutilation which may be triggers for people with a history of cutting. If this is you, skip the book. It also

See No Evil by Allison Brennan is the second in the No Evil Series. That being said, it can be read as a stand-alone novel. Although it does involve some of Brennan's "Kincaid" family members, it has nothing to do with the first book.

When a judge is sadistically murdered in his home, Assistant DA Julia Chandler's troubled niece is the prime suspect. To prove Emily's innocence, Julia enlists the aid of Psychiatrist Dillon Kincaid, and his brother, PI Connor Kincaid. What they find is abuse, and a
I really wanted to like this book more than I did. The plot sounded interesting & I liked the premise. My only problem? The writing just didn't live up to the storyline.

The story surrounds a beautiful DA Julia who must prove her niece's innocence after her stepfather is found horribly murdered in his study. A stepfather whom the niece was being molested by & had plenty of motive to kill. There to help is a figure from Julia's past who holds a grudge and a lot of lust against her, Connor

Alle Bücher von Allison Brennan gehören zu einer Reihe. Dabei sind die Handlungen zwar in sich abgeschlossen, aber manche Haupt-oder Nebencharaktere aus den anderen Büchern kommen wieder vor.

They have a past, but when Julia’s niece Emily is accused of murdering her stepfather, Julia vows to protect her. With the aid of Connor and his brother Dillon, she starts an parallel investigation. Soon, they are are starting to unravel an chilling web of murders. For me, the most chilling part was the age of the murder ...more

This is the second book in the No Evil series, and as I have said before I'm a fan!! What a book!!

Conner Kincaid is an ex-cop turned Private Investigator, he is hired by Assistant District Attorney Julia Chandler who ruined his career and was behind him losing his beloved job five years ago!

Why did she hire him? because he is the best and he cares for her niece Emily who is accused of murdering her step-father in the most grusome manner imaginable!

Julia believes Emily is innocent, so does Conner

It's a shame that it's only a trilogy. I'm looking forward to the last Kincaid story.

The other books in the series, Speak No Evil and Fear No Evil, were better; the romance didn't feel as real in this book because the characters didn't really talk outside of the bedroom or resolve their issues before hopping into bed together. Brennan just doesn't seem to do well in the romance genre; she should stick to just suspense. The characters just weren't as likeable, intelligent or fleshed out as much in this one either. The mystery was also better in the other two; there were just too ...more

Imagine being accused for a crime that you didn’t commit. A crime so violent and disgusting, it made you feel sick to your stomach. That’s what’s happened to Emily Chandler. She is being accused of a murder that she did not do. All the evidence points to her, plus the fact that she has motive makes her all the guiltier.

When Judge Victor Montgomery is murdered in a particularly gruesome way (think severed body part) the police suspect his seventeen-year-old stepdaughter, Emily. After all, blood was found in her bedroom and she apparently tried to kill herself with booze and pills. But Deputy District Attorney Julia Chandler doesn’t believe her troubled niece would commit such a violent act. To prove Emily’s innocence, she recruits PI Connor Kincaid who’d helped find Emily when she ran away from home three years ...more
What I really liked about this book was that the crime portion seemed like it was an easy one, pretty cut and dry, however as the story progressed you realize just how complex it was. Just when you thought you had all the players figured out, there would be another curve ball causing you to reassess.

I also really like the large Kincaid family and how just like in the previous book there is a lot of them in the story. Sometimes they work well together, sometimes not. Because let's face it, no one

This was the second book of the Evil Trilogy by Allison Brennan. There are a few references to people, situations from the first book Speak No Evil, but you really don’t have to read them in order. Once again the chief investigators are the Kincaid brothers and amongst the killings there is lust and romance.

This story starts with 16-year-old Emily who is accused of the death of her stepfather who is a judge. Once again there are online predators lurking in the form of a psychiatrist developed f
I think it's me not you Alison Brennan. I think I was expecting something on the Karen Rose avenue where we get a balance of crazy scary villains and a dose of romance, when it's really more on the side of crazy creepy villains with a dash of gross creepy sex and crude language and one long sex scene btwn the h&h instead of romance.
I don't know why but I wasn't this uncomfortable with creepy villains in other suspense novels I've read... Maybe it's the lack of romance that threw me off- I t

As part of the trilogy, it was a perfect second book.

The characters are genuine, and all their emotions, no matter how bottled up, you feel them. The way Brennan puts you in the mind of the killer has its own creepy effect, and it works well. The action is suspenseful, the plot works out very well. That's twice now where I thought I knew 'whodunnit', but ended up wrong - way wrong - twice, LOL!

I like the Kincaid family. No matter the crap this family gets into, no matter how they fight with each

See No Evil is the twisted tale of murder, mentors, and misapplied justice. Connor Kincaid (I love every member of the Kincaid family in Brennan's books!) quit the San Diego Police Department under a cloud of scandal. Assistant District Attorney Julia Chandler was the one who brought the scandal-storm down on his head. Even so, when she asks for his help with her niece, a troubled girl accused of murder, he steps up. Brennan has a way of getting into the head of her villain and leading the reade ...more
