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.

Horrible Book

I can't believe that I wasted my time listening to this one. The story line was all over the place.

Horrible...

I really don’t even want to give this one star. Bad story and even worse narration...Really disappointed me because I always enjoy Lisa Jackson novels. Wasted my money.

Decent

I enjoyed the story, I happened to start on book 3 which so far is the best of the series
But it was nice to see where it all started.
The reader initially drove me crazy but now I really enjoy her
Sometimes you should just give it a chance and you maybe pleasantly surprised

Great Series

Would you consider the audio edition of Wicked Game to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version.

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

Yes, the story has different subplots.

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

She good with changing the voices just enough to keep the characters desperate.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Wicked...

Any additional comments?

Audible has all four of the books recorded. However when you look at the series, the titles are different. I finally looked at Lisa Jackson's website and realized that I had listened to all fours. The titles on Audible are different than those on Lisa's site. Would be nice to have the correct listings. Although I enjoyed the series, it might have been better if they were listed in order.

I liked it.

I've seen many reviews complaining about this book having too many loose ends. That may be true, but it's a series. Not one where you can read each book separately, but a series that ties each book together (or so it seems from reading this book). Book 1 contains suspense, mystery, romantic aspect and the paranormal. If those things interest you then I would recommend this book. I hope the rest in the series are good too.

Fyi- I'm writing this review on a phone app, so sorry for any missed typos or auto corrections.

Overall a good book

Having already listened to the Siren Song novels this made more sense to me than it would have if I hadn't known those books.

At times this book dragged and was overly repetitive but that's what the speed increase button is for!

Love Susan Ericksons narration, she gives books a life that not all narrators can give, her narration saved this book from being one I regretted using a credit on.
