All in all, I really did NOT like this book. It seemed like one long prologue.
A serial killer is in Grizzly Falls, Montana, shooting the tires of vehicles containing one lone occupant, a woman, his latest victim. He brings them to his ‘hide-out’, lets them recuperate somewhat, makes them dependant on him to the point of ‘wanting’ him. He takes them out, completely naked in the middle of winter, ties them to trees and leaves them there to die of exposure, leaving behind a star carved into the trees above their heads and a cryptic note using the ini ...more
Very large cast of characters and at first seemed overwhelming, but Ms. Jackson knows how to make a story flow.
Some red herrings cast in your way and I was a bit confused until the story really began to unfold. So how many serial killers are there lurking in the mountains? You'll have to read the book and figure it out for yourself. :)
Some romance with a bit of apprehension, all-in-all a good book and introduction for me to Lisa Jacks ...more

One vicious murderer.
Two vicious murderers.
One trailer into the next book in the series.
If I hadn't wasted almost 15 hours for NO conclusion!
What could Lisa Jackson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
She could have wrapped this plot line up in THIS book, not force readers to waste another 15 hours listening to the next book in this series "Chosen To Die". By hour 5, I "Wanted To Die"!!!
How could the performance have been better?
Other listeners seemed to hate narrator Alan Nebelthau's fast pace. ...more

The characters in this book were interesting because depending on the view point that you were reading changes wither you liked them or not. It was interesting that there were actually two cases in this novel rather than one, nice little plot twist. I do have to make this comment that the Detective's children are selfish brats and I didn't care for them one bit. But other than that the book was good.
The first in the Montana to Die series of books introduces 2 very different female cops, twice divorced with teenage kids Pescoli who has a penchant for bad boys and never married Alvarez who is escaping a secret past.

Could be a spoiler:

I received this book as a giveaway from Goodreads. I had not read any of the authors previous books and didn’t know what to expect. The opening pages were very powerful and really grabbed my attention. The story began strongly and continued to hold my interest as the plot developed.
The book begins with the description of a callous murder of a young woman. The story continues as the body is found and two female detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli ...more
