More lists with this book...
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
So here's the thing. When one is on a boat for 9 days and realize that the Kindle/Nook gods have forsaken you and you realize that your boat has a library (oh yeah baby) you grab a book that looks interesting. I finished and started this book all on the same day and really enjoyed it, though I had some problems with having a third lead (really not necessary and also confusing) the pacing, and also with the clif ...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
Je me suis lancée avec beaucoup d'enthousiasme dans cette nouvelle série écrite par Lisa Jackson et je n'ai pas été déçue.
Pour changer de la précédente série "Nouvelle-Orléans", on se retrouve ici avec un duo de policiers féminin, aux caractères diamétralement opposés, deux héroïnes réalistes et attachantes avec leurs qualités et leurs défauts mais aussi leur situation de famille imparfaite.
On les suit toutes les deux d ...more
But I did like it, for the most part, till I realized that it was not going to be resolved until the sequel. Although once I reached the so-called end, I found that the story involving Jillian Rivers was maybe just a little too hard to b ...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
Now, Jillian Rivers, has been in an accident after someone shot her tire out - she is injured and in an isolated cabin wit ...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
Kidnaps women, leaves to freeze
Female cops seek him
But end pissed me off
Would have given it 5 stars, except for the damn cliffie. I hate cliffhanger endings in books!
Klappentext: (Quelle Knaur)

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
Dans ce premier tome un tueur en série sévit dans la montagne profitant du climat froid et neigeux pour faire ces victimes. En effet, il les laisse mourir nues attachées à un arbre. or, avec les tempêtes et la neige, il est très difficile pour nos deux enquêtrices d'avancer dans leur enquêtes.D'autant que le tueur ne laisse rien au hasard et semble très ...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.
An exciting read, twists and turns, plenty of suspense. Interesting characters. Evocative winter/blizzard setting. I recommend it. I have 2 minor caveats that certainly won't stop me from reading the rest of the series.
I did not enjoy the way character narration is handled. There is no break in the print or marker to tell when you change characters. At first it was interesting for it all to run together, since it required guessing who was up. After a while, it was irritating. It didn't add to ...more
