My Review:

From mystery/thriller author, Mike Dellosso, comes his newest book, Fearless!  It’s the story of one little girl, Louisa, who is fearless in the midst of evil.  When she prays, people are healed–at least most.  She first appears in the midst of Jake Tucker’s fire, which was almost done in by a pot of eggs.

With no knowledge of who she is and where she is from, Doug Miller, the local Chief of Police, ask Jim and Amy Spencer to take Louisa in until they find out who she is and where she belongs.  Though they have been foster parents for years, Amy and Jim are reeling over the miscarriage of their baby.  Amy is mostly spooked by the little girl’s actions, but Jim has taken a fatherly liking to her, which endears him to me.  She seems to be the daughter they lost.

After Louisa prays for and heals different children, the town’s people all want healing.  That opens the door to wreak havoc with the Spencer’s in more ways than one.  You will find that people aren’t always who they appear to be.

To up the ante in his book, the town of Virginia Mills has a serial killer on their hands.  The police have no clues, no evidence and no idea who the perpetrator is.  There are few common denominators amongst the victims. The murders happen once a day for seven days in a row.  The police are stymied.

Mike’s unique style of supernatural thrillers comes alive one more time in Fearless.  His use of metaphors opens your eyes to comprehend situations in a broader, more vivid view.  He touches on several issues that intertwine throughout the story–domestic abuse, revenge, murder, miscarriage, childhood abuse, miracle healings, faith, and respect.  Mike’s superb writing interweaves all these issues and more throughout the chapters and keeps you on the edge of your seat, trying to help the individuals that are being targeted.  But you are helpless, as are most of the victims!

If you love thrillers, you will enjoy this book!  It will intrigue you and set you on edge from page one to the very end.  But do be aware, there are gruesome scenes that may be disturbing.

This e-book was provided by the author through The Darlington Society in exchange for my honest review.  No monetary compensation was received for my review.
