Pg. 69: Allison Brennan's "Killing Fear"

The current feature at the Page 69 Test: Allison Brennan's Killing Fear.

About the book, from the author's website:
Theodore Glenn is bright, charismatic, and loves to inflict pain ... both on his victims before they die and on those who later find their mutilated corpses. At his trial seven years ago, Glenn vowed vengeance on his persecutors: Detective Will Hooper, the cop who nabbed him, and beautiful Robin McKenna, the stripper whose testimony put him behind bars.

When a catastrophic disaster sets convict Glenn free, he blazes a freshly-bloodied path across San Diego County. But the death he craves most is Robin McKenna's.

Putting aside their past troubled relationship, Will rushes to protect Robin, now a savvy businesswoman operating her own upscale club. As the killings mount and Glenn proves a master manipulator, Robin and Will become snared in a twisted web of horror. But the shocking truth is even worse, for this macabre mystery has a twist: the evil they face is even more deadly than they fear.

Killing Fear releases January 29, 2008.
