Nothing

His blood quickens as he stares at the photographs. Six faces, all guilty--and detectives Regan Pescoli and Selena Alvarez are at the top of his list. 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. . .

Can Prepare You

Sheriff Dan Grayson lies near death after a shooting, and the police department of Grizzly Falls, Montana, is in shock. Alvarez, torn between a new relationship and her loyalty to Grayson, works with Pescoli to whittle down the list of suspects. 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?"

To Face A Killer

Pescoli isn't waiting to find out. Headstrong and eager for justice, she'll track the scant clues on her own if she has to. But her search leads her straight to a monster who has had her in his sights all along. And when hunter meets prey, both must be willing to kill--and ready to die. . .

First Thought when Finished: Ready to Die was the most twisty turny story in the series so far! Plus that very last scene–OMG!

Overall Thoughts: Ready to Die was probably my favorite in the To Die series to date. There was action, twists, turns, and a few shockers. The story was the strongest when it was focused on the case. It wasn’t so much a “who dun it” but more of a “how we gonna catch him” that had me on the edge of my seat. The only time the story was a little off was when it was focused on the various romances. I don’t know why but I just can’t connect with the romances in this series. However, since they are background and not pivotal (IMHO) they don’t distract from the overall plot line. That being said, I love the characters in the To Die series. There are 2 really strong female leads (Pescoli and Alvarez) that just quite simply rock. Fans of the Eve Duncan or Rizzoli and Isles series would love these two!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Natalie Ross / Length: 13 hrs and 51 mins

Natalie does a fantastic job with the To Die series. I think she nails Pescoli and Alvarez. She does a decent job with the male voices and her pacing is pretty darn good. I enjoy listening to these on audio.

Final Thoughts: I am counting down to the next release! Especially after that last moment.

    I’ve wanted to read Lisa Jackson for a looong time. The “how do we catch him” angle would be a nice change of pace from whodunit.

    It’s been a while since I’ve read this author but she writes good suspense! I’d rather just skip the romance altogether, as it usually pulls me out of the story, though.
