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. But deputy district attorney Julia Chandler believes her niec...more

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

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...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!

Man! A lot going on in this book and at times a little confusing, but if you stick with it...BAM...everything all makes sense...great book!

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...more

Overall Rating: 5.0 // Action: 4.0 / Emotion: 4.0 / Romance: 4.0 / Sensuous: 3.5 / Suspense: 5.0 // Laughter: 2 / Grins: 3 // Tears: 1 / Teary: 2

Allison Brennan: 5.00:
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.

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.

I enjoyed this one better than the first. Had a bit more warmth to the main female character. The author seems to have better skill at writing male characters, though. But that's okay because a LIKE male characters. lol The only thing that threw me for a loop was that a lot of stuff suddenly got thrown in at the end. I was like "what?" and had to slow my reading to try to follow the twists and turns in the plot. And, to be honest, I kind of gave up trying to figure out who did what and called it...more

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...more

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.
In diesem Buch ist das entrale Paar Julia Chandler, eine kanllharte und sehr gute Staatsanwältin, und der Privatdetektiv Connor Kincaid. Doch sie sind wirklich nicht wi die Paare in anderen Büchern: Sie hassen sich, aufgrund einer Begebenheit in der Vergangenheit.

Und doch kommt es dazu, das Julia Connor bi...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...more

This is the second book in Allison Brennan’s Evil Trilogy. This series circles around the Kincaid family. In this book the hero is Connor Kincaid and the heroine Julia Chandler. 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

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...more

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...more

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

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.
My first thought when I read this book was, “How am I ever going to solve this mystery befo...more

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...more

The second book in the "Evil" trilogy. A prominant judge is found killed--exactly like a poster who is part of the annoymous "Wishlist" therapy program writes it.



Julia, an attorney, has to call in Connor Kincaid, a former friend turned PI to help when her niece is arrested for the judge's murder. As they look Emily's past, they learn that even pillars of the community have secrets.



They begin linking other cases together, using "Wishlist" as a jumping off point.



Full of twists, turns, and a grou...more

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

This is the first Allison Brennan book that I have read. This story is a mystery romance. It is pretty well paced though I was initially confused by the number of characters in the story. It took me a while to figure out who was whom and why they were there. I did catch on after a few chapters though and the story was intriguing enough to keep me turning the page until I figured it out.

The story is about a DDA and an ex-cop who realize they are in love with each other in spite of their difficult...more

This book is thrilling and full of twists.

The book starts of with Emily Chandler Montgomety remembering a session with her therapist. She has an abusive step father and a mother who doesn't care about her. She notices something is off because her step father hasn't called her in to his office, she takes this chance to sneak up into her room from the garage. She drinks alcohol until she is runk and passes out. She wakes up in a hospital bed and finds out that her stepfather has been killed in the...more

This book was full of suspense that kept me guessing until the very end. I love how the killers are revealed at the very beginning of the book, but the person behind the plan is always referred to as "him" and is not identified until the very end. I had a few guesses along the way, but I was way off.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was very well thought out and planned. I liked that she put in numerous twists and turns. It was a new concept of murder that I hadn't read before. It kept me interested in what was going on and thinking about who was really behind it all. I enjoyed the Kincaid family and Julia's interactions. I loved how it showed them working through things and what they were thinking. It was interesting to see how they handled the police with Emily and her mental state...more

This is the second book in the second trilogy written by Allison Brennan.
Well, I didn't like this one as much as the previous four books of hers that I have read. I know that it is romantic suspense, but there was so much more romance focused on this one than in the others, and the sex scenes were a bit full on for my liking. This is a suspense book! There was one part where I skipped about six pages as it was entirely about sex!
The villans in this book were more sex orientated as well. All a bi...more

I really liked this book. It is #2 of the No Evil Trilogy and is a fast paced mystery/suspense with a romantic element. I prefer more of a romance, but I can settle if the suspense is good and this one is.

Julia and Connor have a bad history, but that doesn't stop her from calling her when her niece, Emily, is found in the same house with her murdered stepfather. The crime was nasty and brutal - the perp cut off his penis and stuffed it in his mouth, chocking him. Emily had a very good reason to...more
Michelle Palmer
The second book in this series. I really enjoyed the main characters in the series being developed. The sparks between Julia and Connor after 5 years of "hate" relationship. Scary evil people in this book. Taking disturbed teenagers and creating a "serial killer" group. Will continue to read this series.

Two years ago, I read the first book in the No Evil Trilogy. In the second book, get prepared to be chilled in this romantic suspense. Julia Chandler's niece is accused of murder. She needs Connor Kincaid, to help find out who framed Emily, while they had a past--she ruined his career, five years ago. They find out what's really going behind this murder and more, past and present, when they link the connection of Wishlist, an egroup for anger management, and their fantasies come alive. The close...more

Recommends it for: I guess crime fiction fans without current inspiration and ideas?
I think I'll just accept that this author has to describe intercourses at great and detailed lengths in her every book and it's best to try not to talk about it anymore - the thing even more tragic is, she uses same descriptions in more books, I know some details by heart already. Maybe she should start writing sex guides too? uh.
This book is a bit worse than the last few, the motive being a bit too unclear and complicated, the main thing going being the relationship between two main character,...more

Argh. I'm not as happy with this Evil book in the trilogy as I was with Speak no Evil. I liked Julie Chandler but found the lust between her and Connor a bit unrealistic when he had such a hate on for her. Their story arc almost felt like the author wanted to join the romantic suspense genre so better add a romance.
And without using spoilers, I thought the resolution was a cop out by the writer. I like to know my suspects and try to determine which one is the killer. I didn't feel she gave me t...more
