Everyone loved Nikki Gillette’s first two true-crime books, but Nikki’s agent turned her latest proposal down flat since it lacks the up-close-and-personal touch of her other books. While desperately scrambling for a new idea, Nikki learns that notorious Blondell O’Henry is about to be released from prison. Twenty years earlier, Blondell was convicted of killing her daughter Amity and seriously wounding her other two children. Not only had Nikki been one of Amity’s friends in high school; her uncle was Blondell’s attorney, and Nikki’s fiancé—Savannah police detective Pierce Reed—is reinvestigating the Blondell case, which makes it the perfect choice for her next book. However, as soon as Nikki begins digging into the past, she discovers that someone else is equally determined to keep her from finding any real dirt. In the third entry in her Savannah series, best-seller Jackson gives a subtle literary nod to Ann Rule’s true-crime classic Small Sacrifices (1987), and the spookily atmospheric plot is jam-packed with scary chills and sexy thrills. --John Charles --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Lisa Jackson shows yet again why she is one of the best at romantic suspense. A pure nail biter. -- Harlan Coben on YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW Shiveringly good suspense! Lisa Jackson ratchets up the tension as one woman's desperate search for her missing son takes her to the very brink of losing her husband, her sanity, her very self. -- Lisa Gardner on YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW 'WITHOUT MERCY blends murder mystery with romance and religious conspiracy and should appeal to fans of all three.' -- West Australian on WITHOUT MERCY 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. -- Publisher's Weekly on WITHOUT MERCY 'A fast moving thriller with plenty of twists and turns, and an easy flowing style that readily catches the reader up in its thrall.' --Canberra Times on MALICE
A tenacious reporter won't let personal ties to a decades-old case stop her from finding the truth.
On the advice of her agent, Savannah Sentinel reporter and author Nikki Gillette is looking for fodder for her latest true-crime novel when she realizes that the perfect subject is about to be released from prison. Savannah's notorious Blondell O'Henry has been locked up for some 20 years for the murder of her oldest daughter and Nikki's childhood friend, Amity. Now that Blondell's son Niall has recanted the testimony that put her away all those years ago, it looks as if she'll be a free woman unless Nikki's fiance, Detective Pierce Reed, can find a reason to keep her detained. Pierce and Nikki both work to discover what happened years ago at that cabin in the woods, though Pierce bridles at Nikki's rather unconventional--all right, illegal--research methods. It seems to Nikki that the more she investigates, the more connections she discovers to her own family, beginning with the fact that her Uncle Alex was the original defense attorney on the case. But all of these uncomfortable connections make Nikki still more determined to learn the truth, even if she doesn't like what that may mean.
You'll need your own detective's notebook to keep tabs on all the characters and connections on display here. Even so, Jackson (You Don't Want to Know, 2012, etc.) shows a mastery of the true-crime thriller formula that will please fans. --Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
