Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Prolific bestseller Jackson (Deep Freeze) introduces an intriguing pair of female detectives in this intense series opener. Deep in the winter wilderness of Montana, a serial killer sets up car accidents for women driving down secluded roads, rescues and seduces them and then ties them to trees and leaves them to die. As the bodies pile up, Det. Selena Alvarez and Det. Regan Pescoli search desperately for clues. Recent divorcée Jillian Rivers, in Montana searching for her vanished first husband, looks likely to become the next corpse when her tires are shot out and mountain man Zane MacGregor rescues her. When MacGregor vanishes from the cabin where Rivers is recovering from her injuries, she starts to wonder what his real motives are. Alvarez, Pescoli and Rivers separately edge closer to identifying the killer, but Jackson keeps them and the reader in suspense all the way to the cliffhanger ending. (Aug.)

Review

In a word: clever The Herald Sun As a beach read, this is a cracker. Read it at night and it certainly will keep you up. For after the prologue, Jackson slips into her real agenda, and out of your comfort zone. Courier Mail, Brisbane - DEEP FREEZE 'A fast-paced and surprisingly complex story... . The depiction of the protagonist... reaches an unusual depth, and the crisp, skillful language infuse every sentence with suspense...will keep readers riveted.' Publishers Weekly- DEEP FREEZE Suspenseful ... shocking ... will leave readers on the edges of their seats. Booklist - ABSOLUTE FEAR --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Nothing makes me angrier than to spend my free time (which I have little of) on reading a book with no ending. I refuse to buy the next book to find out who the killer is just on principle. I didn't buy the book to be hooked into a future purchase. I wanted to read a story that has a beginning, a middle, and an ending. Don't waste your hard earned free time on this book because you don't get the ending. That will come out in a year from now!!! I think an author that pulls these tricks needs to go back to school and learn that every story has 3 parts. I will only be a sucker once!!! I will never buy one of her books again!!

Apparently I had forgotten that she gets 500 pages by writing at least 200 pages of junk. This really only highlights the fact that her limit of good writing tops out at about 300 pages. I nearly gave up on the book several times but then just started skimming everything that wasn't in quotes so I could finish it and find out who the killer is - only to find out that I would have to buy her next book in August of 2009 if I want to know. I won't be spending another dime or wasting another minute on a Lisa Jackson book.

I am very angry. I read this book and there was no ending! You have to wait 1 year for the next book. I have read all of Lisa Jackson's books and have enjoyed them all but this was wrong. One should not write a book and expect people to wait one year to find out how it ends. She is a good enough author that she doesn't need to use this "trick" to get people to buy her next book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A serial killer is stalking the desolate snowy mountains of Montana for prey. He shoots out their tires, rescues them, nurses them to health, and then leads them barefoot and naked to their deaths where he leaves them tied to a tree, to die of exposure. Leaving a calling card that includes their initials in an elaborate cipher, he has the authorities (led by a duo of female detectives) baffled, particularly as he escalates his frequency. Jillian Rivers heads to Montana after receiving strange calls and photos indicating that her deceased first husband might be alive. When her tire is shot out, she's rescued by Zane MacGregor but can't help but wonder if he's her protector or something more sinister.

I've already given up on hardbound novels by Jackson because I'm so tired of the direction she was taking with the mental hospital/convent, so I was excited to see that she had a new paperback out and no mention of convents. The plot had all the makings of a good thriller. Unfortunately, the novel is so bogged down by unnecessary details to set up the story that my attention waned constantly. I kept wondering when some dialog would be introduced into the story. There are too many characters and too many minuscule details that'll have readers yawning. I barely could tolerate one of the detectives and the other one is so poorly developed (we just know she is a workaholic who spends little time with her family). And then as I got about ten pages from the end, and the plot was so out there, I realized there was no way that the story was going to truly conclude. Jillian might have gotten closure; the readers however, do not.

I can't tell you how irritated I am at having read this entire book, only to be told at the end I have to wait at LEAST a year before I find out who the serial killer is! The mystery they actually solve wasn't even the interesting one. Furthermore, I probably won't even remember the particulars of the plot in a year (hey, I have things to do). Writing a book without an ending is just so obnoxious!

In closing, if you must read this, at least wait until the sequel comes out, so you can find out how the story ends.

This was the most boring book I have read in a long time. I have always enjoyed Lisa Jackson's books, but this was nothing short of empty. In addition, there was no ending....so you'll HAVE to buy her "next" book to find out what happens to the last woman captured. Well, I won't be spending money to find out. I think that's a horrible way to try to sell more books, by not providing an ending to the previous one, especially when the previous one was as dull as watching paint dry.

Readers Beware - I've long been a fan of Lisa Jackson's - however publishing a book WITHOUT AN ENDING AND EXPECTING READERS TO WAIT 12 MONTHS before being able to finish it is a cheap shot and an insult to her readers. She literally ends this book with the killer having the victim in his (?) hands. Lisa Jackson, I'm done - you can't treat your readers this way and expect them to come back.

Read at your own risk. If you HAVE to read this, I'd suggest waiting to buy it until 8/09 when Chosen to Die (apparently not a sequel, but literally the 2nd part of this book) is published. You've been warned.

I plodded unhappily through 300 pages of redundant dialogue only to find that the answer to the mystery will come with the purchase of another book in August 09. I am not a happy customer.
