Publisher's Summary

Afraid to Scream

Others may dread the chill of winter, but he relishes it: the way the frigid water preserves his victims, the feel of their icy skin beneath his fingers…. And soon the world will see their beauty - and his vengeance.

Afraid to Run

The town of Grizzly Falls is on edge in the wake of a serial killer, and Detective Selena Alvarez is no exception. That case was solved, but a new nightmare is about to unfold. There are two victims so far - their bodies were frozen solid and deliberately displayed. Both are women she knew. And each wears a piece of Selena’s jewelry….

Afraid to Die

Selena’s partner, Detective Regan Pescoli, and the entire department are on the case, as is P.I. Dylan O’Keefe - a man Selena got too close to once before. But this killer already knows too much about Selena’s secret terror, her flaws, and the past she’s tried to outrun. And soon he’ll show her that she has every reason to be afraid….

Unique and fascinating serial murder novel!

The serial murderer is an ice statue artist who puts real women inside the ice and then poses them in public places. This narrator is quite good.

Recommended for those who like dark detective thrillers.

Thank You Lisa Jackson, for taking me away and losing myself. It was a great ride, one that I didn't want to get off.

Just Okay

Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

LOVE Natalie Ross, one of the best narrators.

Did Afraid to Die inspire you to do anything?

My first Lisa Jackson. Not sure how I like this writer

Great to see Alvarez and Pescoli again

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot was good. There were a few unbelievable coincidences but for the most part it was a good storyline.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator needs to work on her male voices. It kind of broke up the flow when she switched to a male because it really sounded like a female trying to sound male. When it was narration or female voices she did fine.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This book definitely kept me hanging on and wanting to drive around to listen. Fortunately I had lots of driving to do for work and could listen to it all in just a few days.

Any additional comments?

It's great to be back to the Alvarez and Pescoli storyline. I've really enjoyed this series.

Horrible Narration but good story

Would you try another book from Lisa Jackson and/or Natalie Ross?

I love Lisa Jackson but I will not listen to another book narrated by Natalie Ross

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dillan

What didn’t you like about Natalie Ross’s performance?

She talks in broken sentences and I don't like her accents and the voices she uses for the characters

Could you see Afraid to Die being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes

must love Lisa Jackson

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

no, just ok

Would you be willing to try another book from Lisa Jackson? Why or why not?

I do not think so. the outline is good, but she just does not have the material I enjoy.

Which character – as performed by Natalie Ross – was your favorite?

I purchased this book because Natalie Ross was the reader. Her male voice is her strength and if you like her, then visit the books she reads. My all time favorites are there.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

I own so many...if this author has a following great...just not my cup of tea.

I hated the change of narrators, middle of series

Where does Afraid to Die rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's a great book, but it could have been a better audio book with a different narrator. The narrator of the first three books was great, but a narrator that just reads is a lot more effective than someone trying to do different voices and accents and doing them all poorly!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot and story line is awesome! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time listening to this book

How could the performance have been better?

Go back to the narrator of the first three books. (Why would you change in the middle of the series?) The new narrator Natalie Ross, needs to quit trying to do the different voices and accents! Her Spanish accent just gets on my nerves...it sounds more like she's a vampire from Transylvania. When she starts trying to do the stupid voices, she is not consistent at all! The narrator Natalie Ross didn't ruin my enjoyment of this book, but she did make me consider purchasing the Kindle ebook instead of the audiobook so I wouldn't have to listen to the stupid voices. The authors story stands on it's own and doesn't need the stupid voices and accents, that this narrator can not carry out, to keep the listeners interested!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

The story will keep you wanting more!

Any additional comments?

If it wasn't that I have already invested in this series and want to finish it, I wouldn't purchased another audiobook in this series. I just can't get past the very bad Spanish accent, and the way she is inconsistent with the voices.

Great

Liked the female. Voice so much better! Since its main characters are women,the men made the voices too odd and alway whine. Well done!
