There has been a murder in Grizzly Falls, Montana. The body of a young woman is found, and her ring finger and ring is missing. Detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescolli are the detectives assigned to the case. Besides having to work the murder, the two detectives are also struggling with the fact that their old captain, who they respect and like, has been shot and they do not know if he is going to survive. Pescolli is also dealing with another potential problem, she is pregnant. Her children are teenagers and she does not know if she wants to travel the baby road again. She is engaged but she is not sure how her fiance will react to the news of her pregnancy. She has a lot on her plate and she is struggling to get by each day. Then another woman is murdered, and again the ring finger and ring are missing. It looks as though there is a serial killer in Grizzly Falls.
Jessica/Anne Marie is on the run and she has come to Grizzly Falls looking for help from the injured captain. She is a master of disguise and although she has totally changed her appearance, she is worried that HE will find her and kill her. But who is He and why does HE want her dead?
Both story lines run side by side throughout the book and at the end they intersect in a big way. The suspense and tension build throughout the entire book, beginning on page one and ending in an explosive conclusion.
The characters are well developed, well rounded and three dimensional.Read more ›
There are quite a few twists and turns in the lastest Pescoli and Alvarez book. Pescoli having some news that she's not to sure will go over very well. Not to mention the entire department is still reeling from the shooting of their beloved Sheriff, Dan Grayson. I must say that I was extremely sad when he was shot in the last book. Like previously stated I have been reading this series for awhile, I have fallen in love with all of the characters and the quirks.
I was also really excited at the appearance of Dective Montoya...yes that's right from the Bentz and Montoya series! Although I was a little disappointed that one of my favorite New Orleans cops wasn't more involved. It was nice to see the two series cross though.
Overall a very gripping read and a fantastic continuation of the Pescoli and Alvarez series.
There is a lot happening in Grizzly Falls this time. A couple of bodies of young women appearing with their ring fingers missing, keeps Pescoli and Regan on their toes. Added to this, Dan Grayson gets shot in a previous story and now he is in coma with no chance of recovery, and the new fill in sheriff Hooper Blackwater has big shoes to fill and appease the residents of Grizzly Falls.
In parallel, Anna Marie is on the run from her psychotic ex-husband and she seems to have become the mistress of disguise trying to stay safe. Unfortunately her plans to stay safe and get help from Grayson goes down the drain and she realizes, has another past lover boy on her trail as the bounty hunter.
“Deserves To Die” is the sixth in this series. Reading it alone would be more enjoyable as Lisa Jackson tries to bring new developments with the Graysons, changes in Alvarez’s life, but her true fans may not like it as much as the others. It definitely has some exciting moments and the ending was real good. Somehow bringing in Grayson’s family did not sit very well with me, unless it is leading to more in her future books in this series.
All in all, it’s definitely not Lisa’s best, yet it is good enough for a quick read.

In Grizzly Falls, Montana, Detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli are struggling with a new commander and a department in the midst of upheaval. It's the worst possible time for a homicide. A body has been found, missing a finger. Alvarez hopes this means a murderer with a personal grudge, not a madman. But then a second body turns up...
The first half of the book was difficult to follow at times, there were a LOT of characters and it was hard to follow who was who apart from the two main Detectives, Alvarez and Pescoli. Whilst the book is partly about their investigation of the death of a woman missing her ring finger, it's also got a lot of side stories weaved in.
There is also a lot of focus on the personal lives of the two detectives, I think some background is good in building up character profiles, but I did feel at times this was TOO much, taking away from the buzz of it essentially being a crime novel. I was wanting to skip some of the sections focused on their homes and relationships (I didn't) and get to the more meaty parts of the book.
A stranger is in town also, on the run, and this character plays a big part in the story too, I felt that this character was one of the better portrayed actually and one that I connected with the most, the most tangible. I struggled to relate at all to either Detective Alvarez of Pescoli, they seemed out of reach to me despite so much private life detail. Like I could not quite touch them in the novel.Read more ›
