Every Last Fear is a multi-narrator thriller filled with twists and turns that keeps you flipping pages until the end.
Matt and Danny are brothers but they haven’t seen each other since Danny’s incarceration. Danny was convicted of murdering his high school girlfriend after a coerced confession and since then his family has been trying to prove his innocence beyond a responsible doubt.
Except Matt. Who thinks Danny is right where he belongs.
Alex Finlay has clearly mastered the thriller genre. The story never lags, but slows down in enough places to let the reader catch their breath. While multiple perspective/multi-narrator stories have become a trope of the thriller genre, Finlay has managed to write one where each perspective comes with a unique voice and—more importantly—all work together to further the plot.
Finlay spins a tall tale, with a dozen subplots mixed in, but manages to spin each of these threads together to create a cohesive story and keep even the most outlandish of them on track with the rest of the book when things could have easily gone off the rails.
The result is a family you’re heartbroken for, a mystery you want to see solved, and a thriller that is near impossible to put down once you start.
