Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

In #1 New York Times bestseller Lisa Gardner’s latest pulse-pounding thriller, Detective D. D. Warren must face a new fear as a serial killer terrorizes Boston.

My name is Dr. Adeline Glen. Due to a genetic condition, I can’t feel pain. I never have. I never will. 

The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear. . . . She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work.

My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she did as a free woman.

Six weeks later, a second woman is discovered murdered in her own bed, her room containing the same calling cards from the first: a bottle of champagne and a single red rose. The only person who may have seen the killer: Detective D. D. Warren, who still can’t lift her child, load her gun, or recall a single detail from the night that may have cost her everything.

Our father was Harry Day, an infamous serial killer who buried young women beneath the floor of our home. He has been dead for forty years. Except the Rose Killer knows things about my father he shouldn’t. My sister claims she can help catch him. I think just because I can’t feel pain doesn’t mean my family can’t hurt me. 

D.D. may not be back on the job, but she is back on the hunt. Because the Rose Killer isn’t just targeting lone women, he is targeting D.D. And D.D. knows there is only one way to take him down:

Fear nothing.

Mana recenzija/My review

Grāmata iesākas brīdī, kad detektīve Vorena viena pati atgriezusies nozieguma vietā, lai to pārskatītu, bet viņas negaidītā vizīte kādu pārsteidz. Par laimi, paliek dzīva, bet iedzīvojas ļoti traumatiskā un sāpīgā savainojumā, kas liedz viņai darīt vienu no lietām, kuru viņa ļoti mīl, savu darbu.

Lai varētu pēc iespējas ātrāk atgriezties pie normālas dzīves, atlabšanas nolūkos skeptiķe Vorena nonāk pie sāpju speciālists Adelīnas Glenas, bet fascinējošākais retas ģenētiskas slimības dēļ viņa pati nespēj just pilnīgi nekādas sāpes. Brīnums, ka izdzīvojusi tik ilgi.

Nežēlīgās slepkavības turpinās, un ātri vien tiek atrasta līdzība ar sērijveida slepkavu pirms 40 gadiem un šķiet viņam nupat uzradies liels fans! Interesantā kārtā viņš bijis Adelīnas, kā arī viņas vecākās māsas Šanas tēvs. Abu māsu likteņi izvērtušies ārkārtīgi atšķirīgi. Ja Adelīnai par spīti viņas slimībai paveicās un tika adoptēta, tad Šanas dzīves līkloči noveduši ieslodzījumā uz mūžu. Tomēr savas līdzības māsās šķiet, eksistē, kaut vai tādā ziņā, ka Šanai sāpju vietā nav pilnībā nekādas intereses par citiem, ja nu vienīgi kaut drusku par māsu.

Notikumi uzjundī ne vien Adelīnas niecīgās atmiņas par tēvu un ko vēlāk pati uzzinājusi, bet arī par atgadījumu, kas nosūtīja Šanu, tik jaunā vecumā, cietumā. Medijos un izmeklētāju sarunās slepkava iegūst iesauku The Rose Killer, pateicoties pie līķa atstātai rozei, kā arī šampanietim; un atkal kāds no mediju vidus negrib spēlēt pēc noteikumiem.

Ja, kādam šķita, ka Vorena spēj nosēdēt mājās, tad tā būtu pamatīga kļūda, bet vēl lielāka kļūda no vainīgā puses viņu mēģināt iebaidīt vai pakacināt. Diemžēl noslēguma lappuses uz tādas skumjākas nots.

                                                                                                                                                

Fear Nothing starts at the moment when detective D.D. Warren all alone is revisiting a crime scene to check things once again but her unexpected visit surprises our perpetrator. Luckily she stays alive but receives a very painful injury which forces her for awhile to stop doing one of the things she loves very much, her job.

To get back as soon as possible she gets send to a pain expert Dr. Adeline Glen, but ironically she thanks to a rare genetic disease can’t feel any pain. It’s a miracle she’s been able to survive that long.

Gruesome killings continue and soon enough investigators notice similarities with the work of a serial killer 40 years ago, and it seems that now he has new number one fan! Coincidence or not he was father of Adeline and her older sister Shana. But lives for the two sisters have turned out very different. If Adeline despite her disease was lucky and got adopted then Shana got herself incarcerated for life. However there are some thing in common, for starters Shana instead of pain have no care about anyone else except for her and maybe her sister.

All the events bring up old memories – not only what little things Adeline remembers, but also what it was that got Shana at such a young age to prison. In mass media and between investigators the killer gets a nickname The Rose Killer thanks to how he stages the killings. Once again we see how one of journalists doesn’t want to play by the rules.

And if someone thought that D.D. Warren was capable to idly stay at home then that would be a major mistake, but even bigger mistake would be to try to intimidate her. Unfortunately the conclusion is on more of a sad note.
