FEAR NO EVIL by Robin Caroll
Robin Caroll puts your heart through it's paces in this fast-paced, action-filled tale. It's one that once you begin reading you won't want to put it down. Lincoln Vailes (from Deliver Us From Evil) has become a police officer and returned to Louisiana to be close to his parents. On one of his calls he runs across Jade Laurent. A social worker trying to help a mother and child escape an abusive situation. He's drawn to her confident demeanor but no way is he getting involved. Jade trusts no man after her childhood experience. When several attempts are made on Jades life, Lincoln feels compelled to protect her. As Jade studies Lincoln she wonders if he just might be a man she could trust.
This author does a great job portraying reality. This story deals with difficult subject matters like abuse, murder, gangs and Alzheimer all wrapped up in a hard-pounding story. I really like how real Lincoln and Jade were. Jade had faith and hope despite her early childhood. Yet Lincoln, who grew up as a pastor's son has pretty much side-stepped his faith and replaced it with anger as he watches his father waste away. You'll experience lots of twists and turns as you ride your way to the bittersweet yet delightful finish! I highly recommend Fear No Evil. It can be read as a stand alone but would suggest you read Deliver Us From Evil first. A thank you goes to the author and B&H Publishing for providing this complementary copy for my review.
