Sue Conroy is out of control. Recently released from prison she is determined to find the people responsible for putting her there and to give them a taste of what she has had to endure. When Sue kidnaps an eleven-year-old deaf boy it's only the first stage in an elaborate plan.

Running to Chicago, Sue poses as a battered woman and it leads her to Hanover House, an inner-city women's shelter, run by Dana Dupinsky. Dana safeguards many secrets in her own life and in the lives of those around her but she would never harbour a murderer, that is if she knew that one was living at the shelter. Distracted by the presence of a new man in her life, Dana only realises the danger when those around suddenly start dying and she is thrust into the middle of Sue's dangerous and evil game...

After reading the excellent, I CAN SEE YOU by Karen Rose, I was interested to read more about Eve, and what had happened to her before ICSY.

But this isn't her story, Eve just happens to be one of the many victims of a vicious killer who's hellbent on revenge. A woman willing to do just about anything to get what she wants.

Sue's been in jail and has now kidnapped a twelve-year-old deaf boy from a rich couple. She wants them to pay five million dollars to get him back, and not tell the police. She takes the boy and escapes to Chicago. Here she seeks shelter in Hanover House, a women's shelter. Where she poses as an abused woman with a son.

Dana runs the shelter and is more than eager to help every abused woman who comes to her, but she also tries to help them get on their feet. So when she starts talking to Sue (who goes by the name of Jane) and notices that something's not quite right, she starts to worry.

This is another non-stop thriller that keeps the reader on their toes, and features a chilling, demented, and truly evil villain. Sue's a horrible person.

Nothing To Fear is another great story that slowly unravels and is told in the point of view of a variety of characters. It focuses on a truly scary woman, but also offers a taste of some wonderful people trying to help others, as well as a nice romance angle. I enjoyed this one too. :)

Nothing to Fear, September 2008, ISBN 978-075-533703-3, Headline Paperback (A)
