by Lisa Jackson
2.4 out of 5.0 stars
To me, this is one of those books that as you're reading the last 50 pages you can't believe you spent the time to read the first 600! (I'm reading large print if you're thinking my page count is off.)
I mean come on. I'm not going to give spoilers but there were so many cheesy deaths, so many lurid characters in the book with no background and no reason to be the way they were. Let alone killers, almost-killers, etc.
And the twist was so laughable. I almost didn't see it because I had only a handful of pages left and I was willing to be done with it and call it a lesson learned. Kept reading. Got to the twist - um sort of because if you just decide someone is a killer out of the blue and just throw in the names of the people s/he killed, that is not doing the whole job.

Before she became a nationally bestselling author, Lisa Jackson was a mother struggling to keep food on the table by writing novels, hoping against hope that someone would pay her for them. Today, neck deep in murder, her books appear on The New York Times, the USA Today, and the Publishers Weekly national bestseller lists.
With over thirty bestsellers to her name, Lisa Jackson is a master of taking readers to the edge of sanity – and back – in novels that buzz with dangerous secrets and deadly passions. She continues to be fascinated by the minds and motives of both her killers and their pursuers—the personal, the professional and downright twisted. As she builds the puzzle of relationships, actions, clues, lies and personal histories that haunt her protagonists, she must also confront the fear and terror faced by her victims, and the harsh and enduring truth that, in the real world, terror and madness touch far too many lives and families.
