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.

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....)
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!
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
This was my first Lisa Jackson book and I really enjoyed it. It was fast moving, had a good plot and I connected with the characters. What I found most frightening is that a nut job, serial killer is walking among the public and no one is the wiser. There are actually two different stories going on surrounding the brutal killings and parts of the story are told from inside the mind of the killer. A little romance mixed with suspense is always fun and in this case dangerous. At the end of the book our killer is still on the loose and none of the detectives nor the FBI can figured out the strange clues he is leaving behind.
I will definitely be reading on in this series and am very interested in how many of the characters are brought back in the next book. Alan Nebelthau does an excellent job narrating. No weird voices or dialects except for maybe the killer who he makes very creepy.
Lisa Jackson could have finished writing the novel, not copped out with a flimsy conclusion to one story arc, and then not setting up a conclusion to the main story arc, only to leave us hanging with no resolution to Pascoli's family crisis or to her ultimate fate or that of the serial killer. I feel ripped off! If this is typical of Jackson's work, then I won't go near any of her other novels.
I'm going to ask for a refund!
Not really. The narrator could have done a better job of reading. At least with the print version you are able to place yourself into the world the author created. It's hard to do that with the way the narrator tells the story.
I really can't compare this book to any other book because i haven't read one like it before.
He does not bring anything to the story. I could read the book and imagine the story a lot better than i did while listening to it.
I don't know what the tag line should be. I think I will leave that up to the professionals.
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.
