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 as Thrilling

This book was okay if you have followed the story but it was not as exciting as I would have hoped

I loved it!

The narrator really brings the characters to live! Loved the twists and turns the book had to offered. Which kept me fully engaged from start to finish.

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.

On the fence.

I’m usually a huge fan of these series but this one was a little too off kilter for me. I loved that Court Brewster finally got his, but the sister in-law’s relationship with the three brothers and also the fact that Regan is so strong but allows her kids to be so disrespectful to her is crazy! Having said all that, I’m still looking forward to the next book!

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!!!
