BEST LISA JACKSON BOOKS

For those readers looking to get into novels by Lisa Jackson, this section will help with that. It will go over the novels “Hot Blooded”, “Cold Blooded”, and “Shiver”.

Hot Blooded: This is the first novel in the “New Orleans” series and was released in the year 2001. In a seedier part of the French Quarter hotel, a prostitute lies strangled. On the shore of Lake Ponchartrain, in a plantation house, Dr. Samantha Leeds (host of a popular late night talk show) gets a threatening prank phone call.

Then there is another prostitute’s corpse that turns up. Dr. Leeds’ caller keeps on, and there is a woman that claims to be from Leeds’ past, but she has been dead for many years.

Detective Rick Bentz believes that the serial killer is someone that is close to Samantha, and she does not dare trust anyone. She has a new and seductive neighbor (who is named Ty Wheeler) that knows more about her than someone she does not know should.

Samantha’s darkest secret has been discovered. It seems lives must be sacrificed so that her sins can be paid for; at least that is what this killer believes. The victims have been strangers to her, in the form of prostitutes. As this killer gets bolder, Samantha’s mind makes her wonder if she is the next victim.

Cold Blooded: This is the second novel in the “New Orleans” series and was released in the year 2002. The body of a woman that has been incinerated and slashed is found in a New Orleans apartment that is in the seedy part of town. The killer thinks that there were no witnesses, but actually a beautiful stranger saw everything from her bed located on the edge of town. She was in her cottage near the bayou.

Weeks go by, and Olivia Bechet’s sleep is ruined by another vision of violence. She believes that there is a serial killer on the loose, and so she goes to the police. Rick Bentz does not believe anything that she says; even though there is another body that turns up killed exactly how Olivia described.

The citizens of New Orleans begin to panic because of the killer, and Olivia does not like Bentz’s being skeptical; she also finds that she is taken aback by her attraction to the cop. Another killing soon takes over her dreams; one that has not yet been committed. She is able to see both the face of the killer and the victim; little did she know that both would be close to her.

Shiver: This is the third novel in the “New Orleans” series and was released in the year 2007. Another serial killer is ravaging New Orleans. The victims are killed in pairs, neither have a connection to one another and the whole thing has just gotten started.

Abby Chastain had a good reason when she left New Orleans all that time ago. She is back and feels like she is being watched. Detective Reuben Montoya believes that she is the key to all of the crimes. It must be some kind of mystery involving a local mental hospital that is decaying. Once, horrible crimes took place there.

More bodies are found and Abby and Reuben are trying to stop this killer; all the while, they get closer to something shocking being revealed through this killer’s crimes. The past never quite leaves you entirely.

1 thought on “Lisa Jackson”

  1. I love Lisa Jackson! If I absolutely had to chose a favorite series (very difficult considering her large catalogue), it would be the San Francisco series. It’s one of her smaller series, but it does not disappoint and talk about page turners!

    One series I can easily not recommend is the New Orleans series. It pains me to not be able to recommend them since I love Lisa Jackson, but these books were confusing, lackluster, borderline boring? Sorry Lisa, but thank goodness for your other works!
