Killing Fear begins the Prison Break trilogy, but you will recognize many of the characters from her previous books.

When an earthquake rocks San Quentin prison, inmate Theodore Glenn takes advantage of the confusion and escapes with several other prisoners. He’s dreamed of the day he’d escape, eager to enact revenge on those he holds responsible for his incarceration. Unfortunately for the people from his past, not only is he a cold blooded killer, he’s also highly intelligent.

Robin McKenna’s past comes rushing back to haunt her when she learns of Glenn’s escape. The man terrorized and murdered four of her friends and has taunted her from behind bars for the last seven years. With the police once again involved in hunting him down, detective Will Hooper also reappears in her life. While not afraid of him as she is of Glenn, Will also caused her deep pain seven years ago.

Will Hooper has never forgotten Robin, and regrets their relationship was ruined by his lack of faith in her. Now he is determined to protect Robin, regardless of how she feels about him. He knows Glenn will target Robin and cannot handle the idea of something happening to her.

Killing Fear offers a brilliant killer and a break neck pace. Good luck trying to set this book aside once you start reading.
