Chosen To Die

Chosen To Die Chosen To Die by Lisa Jackson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Regan Pescoli has been working the "Star Crossed Killer" case and then finds herself a little closer to the action than she would like when the killer shoots out her tires causing her to plunge her car over a gulch. The killer takes her to his lair and, following his usual pattern, nurses her back to health only to plan to take her, naked, out into the frozen Montana winter to leave her to freeze to death. The whole Sheriff's office has been working on the case night and day, but doesn't seem to be making much progress. The murder of a wealthy man in the county provides some clues when it is discovered that he was killed with the same rifle.

I enjoyed this book except for the language. Just once I'd like to read about a sharp and capable woman detective who doesn't adopt all the men's worst habit when she joins them in what was considered a male-only job. Other than that, the plot is complex, but well developed. There's lots of adventure and enough clues for the reader to figure out who the killer is before he is revealed.
