One by one, the victims of the Montana serial killer are found dead--far out in the sparsely populated area of the Bitterroot Mountains. Lashed to trees, naked in the bitter cold, they endure a slow, excruciating death. None of these women have a single thing in common, except for the fact that they didn't have any known enemies. With a star carved into the tree over each of their heads and letters added to a cryptic note as each victim appears, this "Star-Crossed Killer" baffles the investigators of Pinewood County. "Left to Die" is the first of a series. The end of the novel leaves you wondering, and it doesn't exactly conclude the plot. There is a story within the story that comes to an end, yet leaves things unresolved and questionable to the reader. But other than that, I found it to be an exciting book! ( )

Left to Die Lisa Jackson
4 Stars

The first in the Montana to Die series of books introduces 2 very different female cops, twice divorced with teenage kids Pescoli who has a penchant for bad boys and never married Alvarez who is escaping a secret past.

In the Montana mountains a serial killer is targeting lone women, first he "saves" them from car wrecks and then he kills them. Its a race against time for the police to figure out who the murderer is and to solve the bizzare message he leaves at the crime scenes.

Lisa Jackson builds the suspense, suspicion, doubt and paranoia leaving you questioning who can be trusted at all, a finish before bed story. ( )

Other reviewers have mentioned that part of the mystery is left unsolved, and the serial killer has not been caught. When I finished this book almost two weeks ago, I thought that I would eventually read the sequel to find out what happened. I currently think that I didn't enjoy this work enough to definitely read the sequel. I may. I may not. There are so many other good authors and their books to discover. ( )

Good story with a slight twist that wasn't too hard to figure out before it was explained in the story. As others have said, no you don't find out who the "star crossed" killer is...it's to be continued but I'm ok with that. A few errors in the story that I won't explain here so it won't ruin the story for you if you are planning on reading it. I'll just say keep in mind "note" and "kiss" and see if you can catch them as well. ( )
