One by one, he'll stalk them, then he'll squeeze the trigger, savoring the way each lifeless body crumples to the reddening snow. One down already. And then there were five.... When Detective Regan Pescoli drives to Sheriff Dan Grayson's house to present her resignation, she's prepared for an argument. She's not expecting to find Grayson shot and bleeding out on the frozen ground. The assassination attempt leaves Grayson barely clinging to life and the entire police department of Grizzly Falls, Montana, in shock. Every lawman has enemies, but something about this shooting suggests more than a simple grudge. Now Pescoli feels compelled to stay on the force until the case is solved. She and Detective Selena Alvarez - who is torn between a new relationship and her loyalty to Grayson - work to whittle down the list of suspects. But the deeper they go, the more personal and dangerous the case becomes.
Then a prominent judge's body is found and the killer sends a sinister warning to the press: “Who's Next?” Headstrong and eager for justice, Pescoli has no intention of waiting around to find out. She'll track the scant clues on her own if she has to, but she has no idea where her search will lead.... Two down, four to go... and now Alvarez and Pescoli are at the top of a killer's list. And when hunter meets prey, both must be willing to kill - and ready to die.

I am an artist, living in Cairns, Queensland, Australia right next to the Great Barrier Reef. I listen to audiobooks everyday while making art and on into the night. I really like mysteries with a good serving of suspense on the side that keep you wondering right to the end. However, I won't say no to any entertaining and well written book which has been read by an excellent narrator.
I have always enjoyed this series and I suppose I did this time with some minor reservations. It dragged in parts and could have done with some clever editing.
I think I probably enjoyed the storyline behind the main plot - which describes the private lives of both Pescoli and Alverez, the two main detective characters - more than the actual plot surrounding the killer which did not raise my pulse rate at all.
The narrator performed the story well however the volume of her voice fluctuated between breathy and barely audible to normal and proved frustrating at times. All in all, I'd rate this book as an average thriller and 3/5 stars I gave it reflects this.
Yes. It was very well done and exciting. The best part of these stories is not only the crime work these women do but how they handle their personal lives.
Their dogged determination to find a killer despite their own problems.
She's excellent - perfect for these women.
These books grab you and somehow make you completely immersed in the story.
You'd think that Grizzly Falls Montana was nothing more than a dysfunctional breeding ground ripe for growing serial killers...on top of that, Pescolis obnoxious kids and her "I'll deal with ťhem later" attitude ironically pinpoints the problem with today's family, and the "too busy to care" mentality of the parents of disrespectful, disobedient kids. I can't believe this settled into my mind more than the murder, which i figured out who the Killer was too soon...btw lol
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I've read most Alvarez/Pescoli books and this is my first listen. The story was good with lots of mystery and suspense and an ending that surprised me. The narration took a little getting used to, this is not what I imagined Pescoli to sound like, but she did a great job differentiating the characters.
Detective Alvarez is Hispanic not Irish!! More than 3 but the accent is very distracting.
The very end! I'm not going to spoil it! Read it but I'd recommend again this audio book.
Not if I can help it. Unless she just reads and skips the accents and deep voices. She sounds good otherwise.
Winter can be killer!
The narrator should really not try to do accents. The fluctuations between the terrible "Spanish" accent and the false baritone was very distracting from the story. Good but kind of predictable. I love the series so I'll keep reading.
I have listened to all of Lisa Jackson's books and like them, except this one. I know all the characters from this series, but couldn't tell who was who or what anyone was doing. I have no idea what the plot of the book was about.
Usually if a book starts off slow, it gets interesting during the 2nd half, but after an hour into the second half and still not being able to figure out what was going on, I downloaded another book and gave up on this one.
I don't know if it was the narrator or if the book was just bad, but it was very bland.
Not many authors develop characters so complex, so real that they can develop seamlessly into new story lines with the gusto of Regan Pescoli. This was a great book. All the way!
Pescoli of course because she is so flawed and still awesome.
Not sure. Probably. She was good.
Yes. Not sure to end who killer
Do not know
Good reader. Good story. Over too soon
