No Evil Trilogy

No Evil Trilogy by Allison Brennan was published in January - March 2007. Each book can be read separately. They all feature strong woman as the lead character, and the connection among the three is each also features at least a Kincaid.

The first book is Speak No Evil, starring Carina Kincaid, a police detective in San Diego. The connection from the previous trilogy (Predator Trilogy) is Sheriff Nick Thomas from 'The Hunt' book, where he lost his love, so here the writer gives him a new one. Carina is investigating a murder and Nick's brother is the prime suspect, and after his experience with a serial killer in 'The Hunt', Nick believes he can help local police to solve the case.

The second book is See No Evil, starring Julia Chandler, a deputy district attorney in San Diego. Julia's niece is accused of brutally murdering her step-father. Julia hires the best lawyer, and the best PI she knows: Connor Kincaid, Carina's brother from book 1. I don't like this book very much. It's about a group of unstable teenagers who like to self-mutilate.

The third book is Fear No Evil, starring Kate Donovan, a renegade FBI agent. This book is very fast paced, or perhaps the story is about a countdown to murder, so we race with the character to save Lucy Kincaid, the youngest of the Kincaid. 18 year-old Lucy is kidnapped and when her family sees her again, she is being raped, live on the internet, and she has 48 hours before getting execution. Her brothers: Connor, Patrick, Jack, and Dillon; go to Mexico to ask Kate Donovan's help. Kate is the only one who knows a lot about Lucy's kidnapper. Among the 3, without a doubt, this book is the best.
