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
Deep in the winter wilderness of Montana, one by one, the killer sets up car accidents for women driving alone down secluded ice covered roads. Then he rescues them, cuts them out of their cars, treats their wounds and convinces them he's going to rescue them. He is diabolical in his tr...more
Montana ist in größter Aufregung, denn in der sonst so verschlafenen Gegend, in der es bis auf ein paar Diebstähle und Prügelein unter Jugendlichen kaum nennenswerte Verbrechen gibt, geht ein Serienmörder um. Dieser hat es auf Frauen jeden Altern und Ethnie abgesehen, so dass die Ermittler nicht wissen, mit wem sie es zu tun haben: Er lauert den Frauen in abgelegen Gebieten auf, beschießt das Fahrzeug mit dem sie unterwegs sind, so dass die Frauen in dem gebirgigen Gebiet unausweic...more
I was trying to decide which book would be my next one to listen to as I had picked up more than one from the library, so I visited Amazon to read t...more
While I was a bit surprised at thinking of possibilities pages, and sometimes chapters, before the police in the book did, that did not take away from this being a very satisfying read.
Jackson does a fine job of keeping the reader second-guessing any conclusions s/he tries to make about wha...more
All in all, I really did NOT like this book. It seemed like one long prologue.
Now, Jillian Rivers, has been in an accident after someone shot her tire out - she is injured and in an isolated cabin wit...more
I read it almost half way through and I just couldn't go any further.
Ringkasan ceritanya menarik, sehingga saya tertarik untuk membelinya.
Namun setelah membaca beberapa bab awal, saya merasa sedikit terpaksa untuk meneruskannya hanya karena saya ingin menyelesaikannya.
Dan pada bab ke-8 saya sudah tak sanggup lagi, perkembangan ceritanya terlalu lambat karena ringkasannya sudah menceritakan hampir keseluruhan inti ceritanya.
Jadi bab-bab didalamnya hanya m...more
I am going to get a tally sheet and start keeping track of each time the following terms are used by fictional cops to let you know they are serious:

It's not just Jackson. Other Lifetime novel writers use the same lingo. I think it's supposed to make the cops seem tough or realistic....more
Jillian Rivers is drawn to Missoula, Montana, after receiving photographs of her first husband, who disappeared on a hiking expedition and was presumed dead.

There are numerous twists and turns and right when you think you have everything figured out, Lisa Jackson throws you for a loop and switches everything up until you're left clueless and wondering once again.
This book is so suspenseful and carefully...more
What I don't like is the lack of editing/proofreading and the fact that errors are made which confuse the reader, the main one being the description of Regan's daughter. On one page, Bianca is described as being dark haired, blue eyed and Mediterranean looking like her father. Flip a few pages and she is described as red haired green eyed like...more

Jillian Rivers narrowly manages to escape the killer when she is rescued by Zane McGregor, a mysterious loner and she feels a growing attra...more
The worst part of this book was the developing romance between two characters. I was actually cringing at the female character observing "He was so close, so familiar, so male." It was as if a Harleq...more
Romantic suspense is not my most favorite romance genre, so I was leery about picking up this book. However, Ms. Jackson is RRRC's September's featured author, so I read this book to complete a challenge.
First thing that impressed me when I read this book is her prose. I think she has a beautiful way of expressing herself, and the words just flow on the paper. There is enough tension to keep me reading, and I did finish the book in a short time. My only compla...more
I have a problem with the implausibility of the whole business of stalking the victim and being at just the right spot at just the right time in a snowstorm to shoot out a tire as she drives by. Then to rescue the victims from the bottom of a gulch without leaving any trail at all is worse than unbelievable...more
