Publisher's Summary

One by one, they'll die....
Twenty years ago, wild child Jessie Brentwood vanished from St. Elizabeth's high school. Most in Jessie's tight circle of friends believed she simply ran away. Few suspected that Jessie was hiding a shocking secret - one that brought her into the crosshairs of a vicious killer.

Until there's no one left....
Two decades pass before a body is unearthed on school grounds and Jessie's old friends reunite to talk. Most are sure that the body is Jessie's, that the mystery of what happened to her has finally been solved. But soon, Jessie's friends each begin to die in horrible, freak accidents that defy explanation.

But her....
Becca Sutcliff has been haunted for years by unsettling visions of Jessie, certain her friend met with a grisly end. Now the latest deaths have her rattled. Becca can sense that an evil force is shadowing her too, waiting for just the right moment to strike. She feels like she's going crazy. Is it all a coincidence - or has Jessie's killer finally returned to finish what was started all those years ago?

    "Grow up"

    A past Lisa Jackson fan, I only finished listening to Wicked Game through sheer determination. Of the 16+ hours, maybe 4 actually advanced the storyline. The rest was teenage angst.

    I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.

    "Does it ever get to the point?"

    The premise is good but the characters who are a group of high school "friends"who have been reunited 20 years later are behaving like they are still in high school. They get back together becasue the bones of someone they believe to belong to a missing girl form their class are found near their old school. The whole first half of the book is basically various members of the group meeting to discuss the missing girl. If I heard the line "do you really think she is dead" one more time, I think I was going to scream.

    It takes way too long for anything meaningful to happen and the dialogue is very young. The commentary from the evil behind all the activity is just silly.

    Spare yourself, and don't buy this one.

    "Longest book EVER and I'm not even through it yet."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Susan Ericksen?

    Yes, I have no problem with the narration.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narrater.


    Any additional comments?

    I like Lisa Jackson but listening to this book seemed to take an eternaty and I'm not even through it yet. I don't know if I can bring myself to finish it.
