    Meh Updated with real words This takes the well utilised serial murder by phobia idea and does absolutely nothing to make it fresh Then there s the usual Mr Killer has a tragic childhood, kills everyone who helps him, makes lots of mistakes, then his stupidity eventually completely overwhelms the apparent intelligence that s kept him from notice for years It s a real shame because there s something about this series that draws me, but it just doesn t live up to what i m expecting, and i m not even sure why that is I think it might be the writing, just too far to the wrong side of cheesy, and it doesn t have that flow, that feeling of real conversation or inner monologue to bring you into either the story or the people in it Every j...

    I really love his books, but they seem very hard to find.

    I ve had my eye on Fear Itself for a long time, however I wasn t sure if I would like it enough to buy it full price Luckily enough I found a copy second hand but of course it sat on my TBR pile for ages still Well, I read it at last, and I genuinely really enjoyed it I d probably give it a high 4 stars however as it s an older book there is some language in it that made me uncomfortable This book is exactly why I want to read books outside of the young a...

    This wasn t one of my favorites by this author In the beginning, I enjoyed the mystery right up until the FBI figured out who the murderer was Then the chase was on but the story dragged and was rather bor...

    FEAR ITSELF By Jonathan Nasaw E.L Pender Series Book 2 MY BOOK REVIEW FIVE STARS I finished reading FEAR ITSELF last night, and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this dark psychological suspense thriller featuring the author s famous FBI sleuth whose forte is hunting down and exterminating serial killers Let s FACE it not our fear yet but just how difficult that it must be for an author to be gifted enough to imagine the existence of a truly original serial killer But not just original, a serial murderer with a psyche that intrigues and yet horrifies us and whose modus operandi and signature leaves an indelible impression that make him or her both unique and unforgettable Nasaw possesses that kind of incredible dark imagination, but equally as impressive, he is able to breathe life into his chilling creations, to endow them with a personae and to render his fictional villains in full Technicolor and in 3 D They are so real that we can sometimes feel a slight chill or the hairs raise of the back of our neck before we shudder and close the book The author s penetrating research into the topic of phobias, and his ability to convey a number of blinding snapshots that illuminate a picture of what it must be like to live with this fear on a day to day basis is chilling enough without a sadistic psychopath showing up He lives to turn the sharp edge of their own unique fear prescription toward them until they see their own worst nightmares reflected like ...

    I developed a somewhat strange perhaps affection fascination with the whole serial killer crime type genre many years ago when I first picked up and became enthralled with Jonathan Nasaws the girls he adored Now maybe it s an age thing or that in between back then and now, I ve read many different twisted and not so twisted tales of killers and apparent good guy law enforcement agents that chase and inevitably catch or kill them, but I found Fear Itself just a little bit, boringly predictable In seemingly typical Ed Pender story style, it builds rather easily throughout the book to a big ish final showdown between cop and bad guy at the end that can be seen coming from pretty much page 1 Pender who I personally picture as a mix of Bruce Willis and John Goodman is a great character, readable and relatable enough to actually ...

    A pretty decent B grade crimey thriller Not much to say about this, I wouldn t tell everyone I met to go and find a copy, but well worth a read if you ever come across it I believe it s the second book in a series, but having not read the first, there s almost definitely no overlap to worry about Also, if implausibility annoys you, this isn t for you, the body count is silly This book must ve been written during the dotcom bubble, there s vague references to Google and Mapquest and things that seem so strange in 2017 The main guy has a mobile and I can t help but think of it as one of those massive Nokias from the late 90 s with the fat aerial I like stuff like that in oldish books.One of the main things that grated on me here is how he crams a bunch of pompous wankiness into the writing He s obviously very clever I bet he plays chess ALL the time, while listening to Bach and he d obviously got a n...

    Despite being a huge fan of The Girls He Adored and its sequel, I found this book underwhelming If I get into a book I tend to read it quickly but this one took me quite a while The idea behind the killer was fabulous, enough to draw m...
