Left to Die
In the lonely woods around Grizzly Falls, Montana, the first body is discovered, stripped naked and tied to a tree. Alvarez and Pescoli have been hoping ...more
All in all, I really did NOT like this book. It seemed like one long prologue.
A mismatched pair of female detectives try to hunt him down. I thought the detectives were boring.
You might like this more than I did.
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 ...more
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 ...more
The book starts off way too slow. So many POVs and the narrator doesnt help. Half the time I was surprised to realize we shifted POV as little to no voice inflection is used to differentiate ...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 ...more
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
Set in the cold winter weather of the desolate mountains of Montana, a serial killer is setting up car accidents for women driving in secluded roads and leaving them to die tied up to trees.
Jillian Rivers narrowly manages to escape the killer when she is rescued by Zane McGregor, a mysterious loner and she feels a growing ...more
I have certainly read worse, and as a thriller this one is ...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 ...more
stranger comes to the rescue and takes care of you until your body improves. Is this a serial killer?
Women have been found naked and hanging from trees in blizzard conditions in Montana. A great read.
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!
However, I dislike that it ends just like that. A cliff hanger. It was pretty annoying to have it cut off just like that.
The characters were interesting and all. The descriptions pretty good.
BUT. I found a mistake in the book ...more
But once I got a better handle on the characters and who's who, I got into it more.
While some plotlines are wrapped up, not all of them are. So consider yourself warned.
I would rank 3 1/2 stars if we had the option. I felt better rounding up than down in this ...more
A small town is terrorized by the Star-Cross Killer. He shoots the tires out in their vehicle, rescues them, gets them better again, and then ties them to tree in the middle of the woods naked. He carves a star and puts a note with each victim. There's just one thing, the victims are not sexually assaulted and they are not beaten. The killer doesn't even leave so much as a single foot or fingerprint behind.
I wanted to try this writer.
The romance was okay.
The women were okay.
The teenagers needed to be bitch-slapped.
The bad guy was a classic evil.
I couldnt put my finger on it but this is not my thing.
I really didnt like the ending. It wasnt satisfying. ...more
Recommendation: Bone-chilling thriller with the touches of romance, lust and twisted minds - a perfect medley to enjoy the plot despite the shivers it leaves in the reader's spine.

Although there are several prominent characters, the primary plot mainly revolves around Jillian White Pescoli who is rescued from a car wreck by Zane MacGregor while they find their way out of their situation ...more
