eBook summary Willing to Die by Lisa Jackson (read online…)

WHEN A KILLER HAS NOTHING TO LOSE
The crime scene is as puzzling as it is brutal. Paul and Brindel Latham are found dead in their beautiful San Francisco home, each the victim of a gunshot wound to the head.

THERE’S EVERY REASON
For Detective Regan Pescoli, news of her sister’s death brings grief and guilt. She and Brindel weren’t close, and Pescoli barely knows her teenage niece, Ivy, who lands on her doorstep in Grizzly Falls, Montana. Though Pescoli is on maternity leave, she’s soon deeply involved in a very personal investigation.

TO BE AFRAID . . .
But as the list of suspects keeps growing, so does the body count. And Pescoli is about to find that both her and her loved ones are at the mercy of a killer who’ll go to any lengths to see her suffer . . .

Willing to Die by Lisa Jackson audiobook free:

Lisa Jackson is one of the best in the business and this, the eighth thriller in the Montana series, is a particularly nail-biting instalment. We are reacquainted with Detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli as they investigate the murders of some of Pescoli’s family. This, of course, hits a little too close to home for her and is a tough case to crack having just returned from maternity leave. With all the excitement and twists, turns and misdirection of the previous books this is a superb thriller.

Ms Jackson creates a crackling tension and edge of your seat suspense which runs for the duration of the novel, and because it was so addictive I read it in a single compulsive sitting. The action is nonstop, the pace brisk and that ending; phew, what a corker. Alvarez and Pescoli are a dynamic pair and we learn more about them in book eight. Each of these instalments can easily be enjoyed as a standalone as each story is contained to that particular book. I look forward to the next one. Many thanks to Mulholland Books for an ARC.

I would like to thank Netgalley and Hodder & Stoughton for an advance copy of Willing to Die, the eighth novel to feature Montana based detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli.

Regan Pescoli is mulling over a return to work after the birth of her son, Tucker, when she receives a call to say her sister, Brindel, and her husband Paul have been murdered in San Francisco and that her other sisters are unable to get in contact with Paul’s sons or Brindel’s daughter, Ivy. The boys turn up but Ivy is on the run, eventually turning up at Regan’s door and hiding something.

I thoroughly enjoyed Willing to Die, which is much the same as it’s predecessors in that it is an exciting read with plenty of twists and turns. The novel opens with a mystery, an unnamed woman grieving the death of a son she was forced to give up and vowing vengeance. On whom and why are only revealed at the denouement but it’s a cracker. Throughout the novel there is a sense of tension, mostly based on Ivy’s efforts to get away, and a curiosity inducing mystery surrounding what Ivy’s hiding. I found it compulsive reading which I finished in one sitting, desperate to know what was coming next. The pace never lets up so there is never a dull moment. In the cold light of day and on reflection the plot pushes the boundaries of credibility with a convenient get out explanation but, at the time of reading, it doesn’t matter as Ms Jackson has woven her storytelling magic to produce an enjoyable, readable novel.

Regan Pescoli and Selena Alvarez have become old friends to me over the course of the series so it is a bit disappointing to see her reduced to a supporting role in this novel as I always enjoy their interactions and squabbling. Jasmine Tanaka, the SFPD detective taking a lead role in the investigation, is no substitute, even if she closely resembles Selena. Regan’s life is fleshed out in the novel where her non existent relationship with her sisters and fractious one with her children are explored.

Willing to Die is a good read which I have no hesitation in recommending.

It seems like the publication date was moved back a few times, but this was worth the wait! I love a good mystery/suspense as well as strong female characters. Lisa Jackson’s Selena Alvarez/Regan Pescoli series features two very strong women detectives. Good mysteries which keep the reader turning the pages well into the wee hours of the morning.
Highly recommend this series!

would like to thank netgalley and the publisher for letting me read this amazing book

what a rollercoaster of a ride this one was…this author just gets better and better

action from the very beginning with a murder scene and a young girl running from the it…is she somehow behind it all or an innocent victim….time will tell

sisters of one of the murder victims gather together but they are not close and their niece is missing presumed to either being held captive or just missing …time will tell

as the storyline progresses more murder victims are found…all heading towards a showdown of epic proportions in montana….

a riveting storyline and one i couldnt put down as i wanted to see how the stories merged together…and wow did they ever…loved it

am keeping a close eye out for more of this authors work

I was delighted to receive an early review copy of this book from the publisher – this series is one I have followed for years and this was another heart-pounding instalment.

Usually we follow Detectives Pescoli and Alvarez solve crime after crime but this was slightly different in that Pescoli is on maternity leave when her sister and brother-in-law are murdered and she gets involved to try and ascertain what happened. Alvarez does turn up towards the end of the story and it is all the better for it – they come as a duo to me…

Pescoli’s niece Ivy turns up on her doorstep after initially running from the crime scene and it is clear there is more to her story but I could not believe she had a part in her mum’s murder but I struggled to piece it together – good job I am not the detective but that was also due to some very clever writing!

It was a really interesting storyline and there was a further aspect to it in that someone has been watching Pescoli and her family and clearly has a vendetta and I always enjoy when I get 2 stories for the price of 1!

The writing as ever flows well and is descriptive, Lisa Jackson sets the scene well managing to bring any new readers up to speed with Pescoli’s back story. As mentioned this is part of a series (book 8) and whilst it could be read as a standalone, having read the previous novels would definitely help you get to know the characters better. Boy do they have some stories to tell between them….

My many thanks to Hodder & Stoughton via NetGalley for providing me with this advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review.

In the prologue, a mysterious, unknown, grieving mother views her small son’s grave stone and vows vengeance.

Pescoli’s sister Brindel and her husband Paul have been murdered in their beds at their mansion in San Francisco. In addition to the murders, their safes, including multiple guns, have been cleaned out. Although Pescoli is not close to her sisters, she immediately heads out from Montana since her niece Ivy cannot be found. Ivy finally turns up on Pescoli’s door step in Montana and it’s obvious she’s hiding something.

From the comments Ivy made in the first chapter, I realized she knew something about these murders and I thought the worst. I liked the San Francisco detective Jasmine Tanaka and hope Lisa Jackson takes this character somewhere in the future. I didn’t like the way Ivy cozied up to Pescoli”s son Jeremy. The book could have earned 5 stars if Alvarez had a bigger role. Obviously, I love the way Pescoli and Alvarez work together in previous novels of this series. I didn’t know who the killer was until the end which really picked up in action.

The murder of her sister Brindel in California results in mixed emotions for Detective Regan Pescoli. After trying to lend a hand in the investigation, Regan flies back home to Montana and soon discovers Brindel’s daughter, Ivy, on her doorstep. Though Pescoli is on maternity leave, she cannot stop herself from helping her partner, Selena Alvarez, puzzle through the ever changing developments in the case. Is Regan unwittingly putting herself, her newborn son, and the rest of her family in danger?

There were too many characters with their own side plots, resulting in a muddled story. Willing to Die was a quick read, but I did not particularly feel any sort of connection to the characters, despite their trying circumstances. This is the type of book that usually does not stand out in my memory for long, so I would be hesitant to recommend it to other readers.

This was a very intriguing story involving Regan Pescoli’s sisters, one of which, Brindel and her husband were shot dead in their beds. Their sons and daughter were missing. They lived in San Francisco. Regan decided to head there to see if she could help with the investigation along as seeing her other sisters Sarina and Collette. Although she hasn’t really spoken or seen her sisters in a while.

The plot thickens as it always does with Lisa Jackson and there is no trace of a motive for killing Brindel and her husband that can be found. The sons finally turn up at Sarina’s but there is still no sign of Ivy, where could she be. Then it transpires she had been to a pyschiatrist so could she be unstable? The police still have no leads and want to question her urgently. Ivy has done a runner but why?

An interesting read with a twist at the towards the end when Regan has returned home to Grizzly Falls and the bodies are mounting up. Regan has to decide if she wants to return to duty as a police officer or become a full time mum and she has been given a deadline by her boss to decide. One of the hardest decisions of her life.

I still love reading Lisa Jackson books, they still have that certain something to keep you hooked.

About author Lisa Jackson

Lisa Jackson can’t keep away from murderers, especially serial killers. She’s been helping to kill people everywhere from Savannah and New Orleans to San Francisco and the Pacific Northwest—and it’s been worth it as her readers come back again and again, and her novels are fixtures on bestseller lists.

Having made serial killing her business—sort of—she has put her characters through the wringer. They have been up to their necks in danger and stared death, usually a pretty gory one, right in the face. 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.

Lisa began writing at the urging of her sister, novelist Nancy Bush. Inspired by the success of authors she admired and the burgeoning market for romance fiction at the time, Nancy was convinced they could work together and succeed. They sat down, determined to write and to be published.

They did and they were.

Initially they wrote together. Later, they moved in different directions. Lisa brought more and more suspense to her work and began writing much darker stories. Nancy’s writing expanded to include not just her own novels, but she also spent several years writing for one of television’s leading soap operas, even transplanting herself for a time from the sister’s Pacific Northwest roots to Manhattan. In February 2009 they worked together again—for the first time in years—on WICKED GAME, which received a starred review in Publishers Weekly and became a New York Times bestseller.

In a nutshell, who is Lisa Jackson? Before she became a nationally bestselling author, she was a woman 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. As those who know her can attest, this funny, smart woman who enjoys making the hair stand up on the back of her readers’ necks, is a mom, a daughter, a workaholic and an amazing writer.
