Willing to Die
The crime scene is as puzzling as it is brutal. Doctor Paul Latham and his wife, Brindel, are found dead in separate beds in their beautiful San Francisco home, each the victim of a gunshot wound to the head. There are no signs of forced entry, and despite the emptied safe it's clear this murder isn't random.
THERE'S EVERY REASON

This is what happened for me when we learn this couple is killed in bizarre fashion.
The family left behind all become suspects while it's pieced back together in terms of evidence.
Nothing is as it seems with some crazy action in between that just made me lose interest.
For the thriller fans they know Lisa Jackson is top notch so perhaps it's just me but I'd love to hear your thoughts on it s ...more

I love this series and Willing To Die did not disappoint. The characters are complex and it is such a pleasure to watch them grow, change, and face life head on. It was interesting to see Pescoli interact with her sisters. The plot builds to a horrifying climax before ending in a satisfying conclusion.
I might have enjoyed this book even more if I had read some of the earlier books in the series, but it worked pretty well as a standalone. For me the best part of this story is the intricacy of the plot. The mesh of locations, characters, and subplots really made for a good story. ...more
