Told through multiple points-of-view and alternating between past and present, EVERY LAST FEAR is not only a page-turning intrigue, but also a poignant story about a family managing heartbreak and tragedy, and living through a kind of fame they never wanted to have.
EVERY LAST FEAR
by Alex Finlay
Minotaur, early 2021
When FBI agents arrive at his dorm room, New York University student Matt Pine learns the terrible news: his parents and younger siblings, on vacation in Mexico, have been found dead in their rental home. It’s a horrible blow to Matt, who is already trying to cope with life in the shadow of his older brother’s infamy: seven years ago, Danny Pine was convicted of the murder of a teenage girl in their small Nebraska town, and he’s been in prison ever since. Recently, his case was profiled in a blockbuster documentary that swayed public opinion toward his innocence, but Matt has never believed in Danny’s innocence himself. Now, as the deaths in Mexico appear increasingly suspicious and connected to Danny’s prosecution, Matt must finally unearth the truth behind the crime that sent his brother to prison, and doing so leads him to a shocking conspiracy.
