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 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

Double murders are taking place. Unlikely people are posed together. The police are trying to figure it out. Police detective Montoya is making connections to a now closed mental hospital and the woman was divorced from th ...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
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

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

But, the story got off to a quick start, and then stays ...more
The opening line -- "She felt his breath. Warm. Seductive. Erotically evil." -- had me dreading the 421-page thriller. But it improved over time. Slow at parts, but picked up nicely at the end.
I was expecting the book to be a lot more about the relationship between the detective and the heroine, but it really focused much more on the investigation. ...more
Pembunuh berdarah dingin. Fantasi seks nya liar. Tercatat pernah sebagai pasien di rumah sakit jiwa. Fanatik terhadap ajaran agama.
Berhubung terfokus pada teka-teki kasus pembunuhan yang telah direncanakan dengan sempurna, saya juga mencoba-coba menebak siapa gerangan pembunuhnya. Motif apa di balik kisah pembunuhan berantai itu?!
Pertama, perkiraan saya pembunuhnya adalah Jacques, ayah Abby. Motifnya kira-kira karena perselingkuhan ibu Abby. Kalau ditanya hubungannya ...more
nah, yang ribet kayanya cerita berlanjut di seri 4 nih (Absolute Fear). tapi entah juga ya..
Yang pasti, I love this ...more
