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 for a careTimes ...more
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 u ...more
The book starts off way too slow. So many POVs and the narrator doesn’t help. Half the time I was surprised to realize we shifted POV as little to no voice inflection is used to differentiate ch ...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 cliff ...more
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 t ...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 attra ...more
I have certainly read worse, and as a thriller thi ...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./>How ...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 a ...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!
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 ...more
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 couldn’t put my finger on it but this is not my thing.
I really didn’t like the ending. It wasn’t satisfying.
Deep in the winter wilderness of Montana, one by one, the killer sets up car accidents for women driving alone down secluded ice covered roads. Then he rescues them, cuts them out of their cars, treats their wounds and convinces them he's going to rescue them. He is diabolical in his tr ...more
Now, Jillian Rivers, has been in an accident after someone shot her tire out - she is injured and in an isolat ...more
There are numerous twists and turns and right when you think you have everything figured out, Lisa Jackson throws you for a loop and switches everything up until you're left clueless and wondering once again.
This book is so su ...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.
