Shiver (New Orleans #3)
A serial killer is turning the Big Easy into his personal playground. The victims are killed in pairs--no connection, no apparent motive, no real clues. It's a very sick game, and it's only just begun.
The Fear Is Real
Abby Chastain left New Orleans long ago and for good reason. Now she's back where she feels watched, as if the devil himself is sc...more
Terrifying and shiveringly and grippingly suspense!! Edge-of-your-seat roller coaster ride.
Reuben Montoya, the sexy and brooding detective that we met in the previous 2 books is faced with a series of murders, where the victims are killed in pairs and placed in a staged and grisly scene. At first, there seems to be no connection between the victims and no apparent motive. But when ...more
Plus, all the info dumping and mentioning things all over again (especially when it came to the victims, I was a bit annoyed because we didn't wanna kno ...more
It's amazing how religion can be twisted and molded to suit whatever fetishes or evil that suits you. Montoya is looked at more closely in this book and I found myself liking him as a somewhat failed character - good cop though.
An old abandoned mental hospital on the grounds of a still functioning Abbey is the basis for this book - who knows what's behind all those close doors now and what was there in the past?
This is the third book of a series. So far, each book can be read as a stand alone. The similarity between the books is that the same two policemen are investigating the crimes. The theme between all the books are similar too. All these books have a religious undertone to them.
In this one, there is a new serial killer in New Orleans and he is killing two people at a time that have no connection. He is staging these murders in an elaborate tableau as he is playing games wit ...more

The story is fairly typical, there wasn't anything spectacular about the plot. The twist at the end was fairly well-done, however the chemistry between the two main characters, Montoya and Abby, was not. Several times, the characters seemed rigid and downright stereotypical. For example, one of the victims plans to enter a c ...more

I like religious serial killer stories as much as the next girl, and I have to say the plot in itself has some potential, but the novel is quite slow-paced at times, which does not do it any good. Additionally, there is quite a bit of repetitive information, making the book much longer than it needed to be. That said, Lisa Jackson did a great job in creating a chilling setting (the hospital, Abby's house). That was ...more
My very basic review:
Beginning was good, intriguing. Ending left me unimpressed.
Overall, Shiver was definitely an enjoyable read. Parts were filled with suspense and very well-written. However, the killer's M/O is just a bit cliched at this point, and pretty clear from the beginning. The climax felt a bit odd to me. The killer had taken 3 sets of victims, but the two sets he has at the climax seem like they should have been his last victims - so what about the other two sets? The ...more
Detective Rueben Montoya has already suffered loss with the death of his Marta. Finding himself drawn to, and involved with, a suspect is more than just unbelievable, but Abby has awakened his heart, and she is in ...more
But I read it. The whole stupid thing.
"Detective Reuben 'Diego' Montoya is back in New Orleans. Thanks to years of working with the dark side of society, his youthful swagger is gone, replaced by straightforward determination. He'll need it, because a serial killer is turning The Big Easy into his personal playground. The victims are killed in pairs - no connection, no apparent motive, no real clues. Somebody's playing a sick game, and Montoya intends to beat him at it.
His only lead is the ex-wife of one of the victims. Abby ...more
I really enjoyed the chemistry between the two, it was very sexy and very intense!
Anyway, once again New Orleans has been struck by a series of murders under very strange circumstances; the ki ...more
Ya, penulis tetep menjaga rasa penasaran pembaca dengan tidak memberi sedikitpun ruang untuk mereka-reka siapa pelaku pembunuhan tersebut. Namun sayangnya penulis juga tidak memberi kesempatan pembaca untuk memainkan imajinasinya ketika membaca kisah ini karena penjelasan dalam novel ini terlalu detail sehingga menimbulkan kesan bertele-tele dan la ...more
