In Left to Die, the Pinewood County Sheriff 's Department is on the trail of a cold-blooded killer who acts as a savior to women stranded during terrible mountain snowstorms before stripping them of their dignity and leaving them to die, a victim of the elements. But the killer's latest victim managed to escape, leading some to believe there may now be an imposter on the loose.

It never ceases to amaze me at the twists and turns in these books that never let a person guess "who dun it" till the reveal at the ending! I am hooked!
I like this book...I am really a Lisa Jackson fan!
The Sequel is now out..I don't understand why audible has not offered it ..I want to know what happened to detective Pescoli ..I have most of jackson's books and want more!
Excellent book. Keeps you guessing till the end and leaves you wanting more. The reader could have been better chosen... not the best choice for female characters, but he pulls it off.
I really enjoyed this book. It started out a little bit slow--- and there are a lot of characters to keep up with, but in the end I was really happy with this book.
It is the first book in a new trilogy... and the next book is not supposed to be out until October 09 (according to the writer's website). I can't wait to find out what happens next!
Lisa Jackson - Yes. Alan Nebelthau - NO
The narrator doesn't pause appropriately and goes directly from one part of the story to another without even taking a breath. It's very difficult to follow and I was constantly going back to figure out what I missed. Because I had to keep going back, the story seemed like it didn't flow well and was disjointed. But I think that was mostly due to the narrator.
I was curious about the rest of the books in this series; however, it's the same narrator. I think I'll skip them.
I decided to try this author because of the reviews of her books (and because my regular authors do not have any new books to read/hear). I am SO happy that I did! This book kept me wanting more... the story line is excellent and I had to find excuses to listen more (headphones on while cooking... working..... etc...etc....)
I bought more credits just to start the next book in the series... Great job Ms. Jackson!!
Great job to the narrator, Alan Nebelthau too! Actually, speaking of the Narrator, Alan Nebelthau sounds a lot like the Narrator, George Guidall of the "Walt Longmire" series of author Craig Johnson? (Another series I listen to - but the third Longmire book really isn't working for me.... we shall see....)
I am sure the story is really good; however, I stopped listening because the narrator's style of reading is almost continuous; seemingly without pauses for long periods of time. It is hard to reflect on the story or separate characters in my mind when a story is narrated this way.

I am going to buy this series in hardback.
The lead characters are FEMALE, plus the guy sounds like an elderly man. WTF?? Too bad, the story is decent.
The two lead detective's characters are well-drawn. I want to know more about them and another couple, which is a good sign. What I didn't like was, first, that excessive description at places had me drifting off as the murderer rhapsodized about unnecessary and distracting details. Second, it is annoying that you have to buy the sequel to finish the story that was the purported primary focus of the book. (Having not read the sequel, I can't be sure the story finishes there either, but you get the point.) I'm fine with series and trilogies, but this approach is pretty deceptive.
This is in the vein of Karen Rose or Karin Slaughter, but not quite up to that standard.
A female narrator, given that it seemed most of the dialogue was women. Of course, perhaps I dozed through parts . . .
