Review of “No Good Deed” by Allison Brennan



Lucy Kincaid understands the dangers of corruption. As an FBI agent, she has witnessed some very bad deeds committed by seemingly good people. That’s why she’s glad to see corrupt DEA Agent Nicole Rollins behind bars for murder, conspiracy, and gunrunning. But when Rollins makes a daring escape—jeopardizing a busload of children and killing five officers—Lucy becomes the key to the biggest manhunt in Texas history…and the target of a brilliant killer.

Some believe Rollins has fled the country. But Lucy suspects her plan is far more sinister—a taunting game of cat and mouse that hits much closer to home. First, an FBI agent with a connection to Texas is killed in Washington. Then, Kane Rogan disappears on a mission. When Rollins ups the ante again, Lucy is determined to save the people she loves—before her enemy strikes again. Time is running out. The body count is rising. Rollins wants more than revenge—she wants to destroy everything Lucy holds dear…


No Good Deed is the very first novel that I have read by Allison Brennan and the tenth addition to the Lucy Kincaid series. I realized a little too late that my reading experience would have benefited greatly had I just started the series from the very beginning. It sounds like a “duh” sort of claim, but there are many thriller series that don’t require you to start from the beginning. This is not one of those. Therefore, if you are planning on reading the Lucy Kincaid series, I highly recommend catching up on all of the books prior to this one, because otherwise some of the plot may not make much sense to you.

This book started off great! I was glued to the pages and refused to go to sleep until I could find out what happened next after that crazy introduction! I found the concept to be highly intriguing and the characters were just as captivating. The events in the book were very interesting and made the book hard to put down. They played out like a movie in my head.

However, my biggest complaint is due to the amount of points of view there were throughout this book. I stopped counting after about 7 or 8 POVs. It was just too many and that was within the first 100 pages! It became difficult to get a feel for each of the main characters simply because the book was shared with so many of them. Once again, it would have been helpful to have started this series from the beginning to lessen the confusion. This was probably the first book I’ve ever read that has made me feel the need to take notes just to keep up with everyone lol.

Overall, I still enjoyed the book and hope to go back and start the series from the very beginning because I love Lucy’s character and want to read more about her.

Special thanks to Minotaur Publishing for sending me this beautiful paperback to review! 🙂 All opinions are honest and all my own.

Final Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars!
