This collaborative novel has all the tension and suspense that Jackson fans expect. The web of family ties and secrets creates a strong plot. Readers who enjoy shows like Criminal Minds will find the serial killer satisfyingly scary. The authors have each worked their parts of the story together seamlessly.
Colton, the eldest son in the Dillinger family, moved to Montana 20 years ago after a house fire claimed the life of his uncle. Now he and his siblings have returned to Prairie Creek, Wyo., for the wedding of Ira Dillinger, the family patriarch, and a much younger woman who Colton once dated. But a serial killer bent on revenge against the Dillingers — a killer who seems to have targeted the family before — is bringing terror to their hometown. (ZEBRA, Dec., 384 pp., $7.99)
