BEST SELENA ALVAREZ & REGAN PESCOLI BOOKS:
These are two best books in The Montana series by Lisa Jackson, Left To Die (2008) and Chosen To Die (2009).
Left To Die: In the midst of terrible Montana winter, a serial killer is on the loose, and more bodies keep on piling up each dawn near the town of Grizzly Falls. The killer usually “rescues” his female victims when their cars fly off a mountain road. Most of these victims do not realize that the cause of the accident was caused by the killer shooting their tires out. The man then carries his victims to a remote cabin and wins their trust by tending their wounds and making them trust him. However, after spending a couple of weeks with the victim, the killer ties them naked to a tree and leaves them to die.
While under intensive pressure to catch the killer as more dead bodies keep on piling, detectives Selena and Regan work the case for several months. However, each of the detectives has their personal issues to deal with first. Reagan is divorced, takes care of her two parents hating children and a difficult to handle ex-husband. She continually gets involved in superficial relationships based on alcohol and sex. On the other hand, Selena is quite the opposite. She is a loner who lives a solitary life with no life outside her typical job. Despite the help they get from the FBI, the detectives are no closer to catching the serial killer.
Then, Jillian Rivers, Seattle residents begins receiving anonymous info that she thought to be dead husband is still alive. At first, she assumes that this is just a prank since her husband has been deceased for ten years now even though his body was never found. She heads to Montana to investigate on some photographs that she had received from someone resembling her husband, Aaron. Unfortunately, she never makes it, her tires are shot, and her car rolls to the bottom of a sloppy ravine.
Jillian is rescued by a man named Zane MacGregor and taken to his cabin where all her wounds are tended to. An intense blizzard traps them indoors making it impossible to contact the outside world or head to the populated areas. Jillian has read about the serial killer, could her rescuer be the serial killer? Moreover, does her situation fit the serial killer’s known pattern?
