Book Description

22 July 2010 Selena Alvarez/Regan Pescoli

When Jillian Rivers opens her eyes, she's trapped in a mangled car. Then a stranger comes to her rescue...

But something about him sets Jillian on edge. And if she knew what is lying out there in the Montana woods, she'd be truly terrified.

Four people have already died, and detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli are trying to make sense of a nightmare. With nothing but a killer's cryptic notes and their unsettling conviction that there is worse to come, someone is waiting... watching... poised to strike and make Jillian the next victim.

2.0 out of 5 stars Misleading 23 Aug 2010
By kayce
The title says "Left to Die", the tagline under the author's name reads "First he saves their lives, then he ends them". Once you've read these two lines, you've got a pretty good idea of what the book is about. In fact, these 2 lines summarises what the next 500 pages are about because at the end of the 500 pages and hours wasted reading them, you don't know who the killer is, what his motives are etc. Not a good start to a series even though the author keeps you guessing until the last 2 pages when you realise that she is just not giving the identity of the killer up.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of an introducton than a full story 3 Sep 2010
By D. Newstead VINE VOICE
What starts off as a really excellent piece of writing with a creepy killer and a mysterious rescuer is he or is he not the Star Killer that leaves stars and letters above his victims heads that he leaves in the snow. As many of the reveiewers said this is a book that promises a complete story and feels rushed at the end with a resolution of a side story that was not really much point too. The writer would have been better sticking to the whole story and completing it rather than using other characters and side lines to extend the book into another novel. Having said that this is a well accomplished book and look forward to reading the next one.

Next time can the author advise the 1st in the _____ trilogy or part 1 of 2 etc so at least we can be aware.

3.0 out of 5 stars Felt shortchanged 8 Aug 2010
I was really enjoying this book until I reached the final page and discovered that I would need to read a further book if I wanted to have the mystery solved. This might be acceptable in a T.V. serial but not when the follow up book is still in the process of being written - many months wait for the hardback and even longer for the paperback edition. Sequels are fine if one story finishes and the characters and their lives are continued in the next story, not if the reader is left without a solution. Very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Books in order 21 Feb 2012
By Susan
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoy this author but I wish she would indicate her books are in order, I purchaed two book at the one time and didn't realise that I had read the second one first until I finished it and started on the next book, only then did I realise that I was reading them out of sequence. If the author could indicate book 1 etc it would save me wasting money on a book that there is no point reading as I already know who the killer is. Other authors let you know if it's book 1, 2 etc in a series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Irritating 27 May 2011
By Teach
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really hate to be lied to by an author, and this is what happened here. The book was fairly good and reasonably well written, but if I had been aware that it was only half a book, I would have had nothing to do with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Last page disappointment 11 Nov 2010
By Lucotte
I really enjoyed this book and this is the first book I have read by this author and felt I would definitely buy more of her books.
However when i got to the last page i realised that the identity of the murderer was not solved and looks as if there will be a sequel. So now I will need to find out the name and when it will or has been published. Very disappointed with the ending, however I will probably buy the sequel as i want to know the identity of the killer.

3.0 out of 5 stars I was enjoying the book but 11 Sep 2010
I was really in to this and expecting it to be a nail biting finish-how wrong was I? Did the Author get confused? Was she writing two books at the same time? The answer to the 'non serial killer' was such rubbish a child could have written it and to find out that the book did not finish with the hunt for the real serial killer was a huge let down. It doesn't even tell you when the next one is out so how long is this going to drag on for? Why do we have to learn so much personal stuff about the Cops trying to sort it out? So many different avenues in this it detracts from the main story.

2.0 out of 5 stars what a disappointment 4 Jan 2011
By keykate
This is the very first book I have read by Lisa Jackson and up until the last few pages I was already keen to read more of her books ,but what a feeble ending ! I felt really cheated and the end of the sub plot could have been a comic book story, as for not revealing the true killer of the main plot was really despicable.All I can say is I am glad I did not buy this book but had it on loan from the library and I will definately avoid this author in future I also agree with a previous review it should be stated plainly that is part 1 of a a trilogy or a second novel
