Publisher's Summary

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.

Not a stand out...

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.

Great Series

I love the "To Die" series by Lisa Jackson. This is the 3rd book I have listened to in Audible. I enjoyed book 1 and 3's performance but it was really hard to get into this performance. The reader gave the characters very different voices that were hard to relate to. But the book was otherwise great.

This is a great series!

If you could sum up Ready to Die in three words, what would they be?

Television Series Material!

Because these books would make an awesome tv series like in the old days when they had a mystery hour or even a movie.

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

The plot kept me on the edge of my seat, especially the twist.....I don't want to say much so I don't ruin it for others who have not read these books yet.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I don't care for the narrator....she would be great, if she quit making the voices with the accents, which by the way were very inconsistent. I liked the narrator of the first 3 books so much better!!! His voice was made for these books.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I like the entire book!!!

can't wait for more in this series!

as always this continuing series keeps me listening and looking forward to the next!! even though each one has a thrilling conclusion, the continuing story line makes me look forward to the next in the series. even when I was out of sequence I was still enthralled.

ANOTHER GREAT ALVAREZ AND PESCOL THRILLER

Would you listen to Ready to Die again? Why?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

Their dogged determination to find a killer despite their own problems.

What about Natalie Ross’s performance did you like?

She's excellent - perfect for these women.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

These books grab you and somehow make you completely immersed in the story.

Serial killers stomping ground

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

Alvarez accent

Second book where reader tries to do a Spanish accent. does a poor job, better off without the accent. it wasn't noticeable in previous reads.

Pretty good story!

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.

Another great book.

This entire series has been fabulous. Just hate that I'm on the last book in the series. Please keep them coming, Lisa.
