READY TO DIE: Lisa Jackson

A Selena Alvarez/Regan Pescoli Novel, Book 5
Lisa Jackson
Zebra Fiction (Paperback)
ISBN: 978-1-4201-1851-3
August 2013

The latest novel by Lisa Jackson pits Alvarez and Pescoli against a cold-blooded killer and among his victims is Sheriff Dan Grayson.  It is the holidays and just when everything begins to settle down after the last case, the next gruesome murders are taking place springing Alvarez and Pescoli into action, this time much too close to home.  Sheriff Grayson preparing to meet with Regan Pescoli, at his cabin, is downed by a single shot.  Seeing Dan fall, Regan calls in for help and begins a visual canvass of the area surrounding the scene and hunt is on for the perpetrator.  In the midst of identifying several suspects, another gruesome murder is discovered which shifts the case in an entirely different direction. 

READY TO DIE is another hit for Lisa Jackson with several twists that will compel you to keep reading way past bedtime.  With the stressors of trying to find the shooter(s) Serena and Regan are individually dealing with personal issues coupled with Christmas makes solving this case even more stressful.  Dan’s brothers and sister-in-law are all at their wits end and the past inevitably becomes the present and old wounds resurface.  Power plays are being made to take the sheriff’s position should he not survive and the undersheriff is front and center.  I could not put this book down, a must read for fans of romantic suspense, mysteries and of Lisa Jackson!  Cannot wait until the next one…
