Children will be the death of you, especially if they spike your wine with antifreeze. That is what Mathew Derrick suspects his precious young Sarah did to her mother so that she could have daddy all to herself. But the police think that he killed his wife after discovering that his daughter was the product of an extra-marital affair. Rather than face the wrath of the law he takes little Sarah and runs.
Although he manages to elude the law, he can't escape Sarah's unquenchable wrath for the women in his life. Could this adorable and seemingly innocent child really be a murderess? And if not, who is killing the loves of his life, and why?
Reviewed by Cheryl Schopen for Readers' Favorite "In 'Fear Itself' by Duffy Prendergast, Mathew is accused by the police of murdering his wife. He knows he didn't do it, but he now suspects his little seven-year-old daughter, Sarah, after he finds out Catherine was poisoned with some antifreeze, something Sarah is familiar with since they used it in a science project they worked on together. Scared of losing Sarah by either going to prison for a crime he didn't commit or her being taken away from him because of her possible homicidal tendencies, he decides to take Sarah and leave town. It seems as if they are able to avoid being caught, but Mathew has other women in his life who may be in danger due to Sarah's attachment and borderline obsession with her daddy and keeping him all to herself. "Fear Itself" is definitely a must-read. Throughout the entire story, you wonder if this seemingly sweet young girl could actually be a murderer. The characters were unforgettable and the plot was unpredictable. Duffy Prendergast is an amazing writer. I absolutely loved the vivid and detailed descriptive language; this author is obviously talented. Even though the disturbing scenes and almost creepy father-daughter relationship was, at times, hard to read, overall, this was a great book. It was thrilling, mysterious, and full of suspense. And the surprise ending had my eyes bugged out and my jaw dropping. I hope to see more from this fabulous author. Clearly a gifted writer, Duffy Prendergast definitely has gained a new fan."
