My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In San Diego’s beachside college communities, a stalker lurks, hunting young women he identifies pursuant to identifying them online. Growing up in an abusive household, with a father whose criminal acts were mostly but not completely disguised (and glossed over by his wife), this man has decided that all women are irrevocably promiscuous, and he both desires, and denigrates, to the point of death.
A strongly-plotted mystery/romance that grips the reader by the throat, “Speak No Evil” demonstrates prolific author Allison Brennan’s capabilities and talents. This novel deals with themes central to present-day society, including Internet and in-person stalking and the impossibility of true online safety. Many important lessons are encapsulated here, such as the need to keep one’s private life safe-which is impossible whenever one is linked online to friends and acquaintances who share personal information such as school name, team name, geography, favourite coffee shop or mall, etc.
