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

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.
In the Montana mountains a serial killer is targeting lone women, first he "saves" them from car wrecks and then he kills them. Its a race against time for the police to figure out who the murderer is and to solve the bizzare message he leaves at the...more
By Lisa Jackson
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

What I noticed from the get-go was that it appeared (and later, was actually verified)that there were two villains. I was floored because it provided an element to the story which I liked and also later provided depth to the twists which later surfaced.
At first I was convinced that MacGregor, one of the main characters, was the bad guy, but reading on, I found there to be a thi...more

Sie nennen ihn den Stern-Mörder: Er lauert seinen weiblichen Opfern bei einsamen Bergstraßen auf und schießt auf deren Autoreifen, um einen Unfall zu verursachen. Dann verschleppt er die schwerverletzten Frauen und behält...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
