Publisher's Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson comes the chilling, riveting novel that first introduced Detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli, hunting for a serial killer who is both savior and executioner....

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 career-making case, but this is a nightmare. The killer stages car accidents on icy, isolated roads and “rescues” his victims. He toys with them, heals them, earns their trust...before subjecting them to a slow, agonizing death.

When Jillian Rivers opens her eyes, she’s trapped in a mangled car. Then a stranger, claiming to be a trail guide, pries her free. Though she’s grateful, something about him sets Jillian on edge. And if she knew what was lying in wait for her, she’d be truly terrified....

Even with the FBI involved, Selena and Regan have nothing to go on but a series of cryptic notes, and the unsettling knowledge that there is much worse to come. Piece by piece, the killer’s brutal plan is taking shape. But his final move will be the most shocking - and personal - of all....

It was weird for me

Maybe I wasn't paying enough attention, but the guy in the cabin morphed between the guy who did it and not the guy who did it 3/4 of the way in. I felt like I was losing my mind when all of a sudden he wasn't "who done it". It was weird for me, not one of her best, that's for sure.

Brutal!

Many hours of life wasted! A poorly written wannabe harlequin romance with a character who vacillated between a semi hysterical, whining ninny to a weak kneed fool swooning over a macho jackass. The reader had possibly one of the worst accents and character changes in tone I’ve ever heard. Spare yourself!

Could have been better

I would have given the story four stars but she had too much stupid sex talk. If I wanted that I would read romance. I want a good murder mystery.

Idk

The narrator was good story was okay I guess small town in Montana women keep getting into vehicle wrecks the person who saves them from dying in the wreck ends up nurturing the back to health and then tying into a tree naked and watching them die of hypothermia it wasn't that enjoyable but I can't be left hanging and that is exactly how she wrote it where You Don't Know How It Ends until you read the next book which I absolutely hate but here we are so I will be reading next book too unfortunately

Terrible Ending; not that I’d call it one!

Even when writing a series you must finish the book you’re on. This was the worst from Lisa Jackson whom I’ve come to expect much better. Do not waste your credits.

More like a romance novel

The sex obsessed “victim” of a traumatic experience completely detracted from what could have been an very good story. I was compelled to fast forward past the overly graphic sex fantasies which seemed to become the actual reason for the book. Lisa Jackson obviously feels that sex sells but this was ridiculously overplayed. This was my first and last purchase from this author.

“Or was it?”

The story was ok. Predictable. Narrator sounded like an extreme soap opera character. It was so distracting. The story itself was cheesy. Killer’s monologue often ended in “or was it”. Don’t recommend

This is not a stand alone book.

I should have been informed that this is only part one! The book was ridiculous and boring and repetitive. Don't waste your time or money!

Left to Die

A lot of build up for a let down at the end. Hard to follow what was going on at times.

warning graphic sexual content

Ok story, all the graphic sexual content was not necessary. Lots of unresolved issues remained at the end. Would not recommend.

Great book!

I enjoyed this book a lot. I couldn’t stop listening to it. Very well written. Love the cliffhanger bc it just means I get to hear another one. Highly recommend this if you like a good mystery and suspense thriller.

NO END

Total waste of credit. there is no end other than a melodrama made up halfway through the story. IMO one of the worst books I have listened to and I am an active listener. finished it just to be able to warn others.
