    I was delighted to receive an early review copy of this book from the publisher - this series is one I have followed for years and this was another heart-pounding instalment.

    Usually we follow Detectives Pescoli and Alvarez solve crime after crime but this was slightly different in that Pescoli is on maternity leave when her sister and brother-in-law are murdered and she gets involved to try and ascertain what happened. Alvarez does turn up towards the end of the story and it is all the better for it - they come as a duo to me...

    Pescoli's niece Ivy turns up on her doorstep after initially running from the crime scene and it is clear there is more to her story but I could not believe she had a part in her mum's murder but I struggled to piece it together - good job I am not the detective but that was also due to some very clever writing!

    It was a really interesting storyline and there was a further aspect to it in that someone has been watching Pescoli and her family and clearly has a vendetta and I always enjoy when I get 2 stories for the price of 1!

    The writing as ever flows well and is descriptive, Lisa Jackson sets the scene well managing to bring any new readers up to speed with Pescoli's back story. As mentioned this is part of a series (book 8) and whilst it could be read as a standalone, having read the previous novels would definitely help you get to know the characters better. Boy do they have some stories to tell between them....

    My many thanks to Hodder & Stoughton via NetGalley for providing me with this advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review.

    In the prologue, a mysterious, unknown, grieving mother views her small son's grave stone and vows vengeance.

    Pescoli's sister Brindel and her husband Paul have been murdered in their beds at their mansion in San Francisco. In addition to the murders, their safes, including multiple guns, have been cleaned out. Although Pescoli is not close to her sisters, she immediately heads out from Montana since her niece Ivy cannot be found. Ivy finally turns up on Pescoli's door step in Montana and it's obvious she's hiding something.

    From the comments Ivy made in the first chapter, I realized she knew something about these murders and I thought the worst. I liked the San Francisco detective Jasmine Tanaka and hope Lisa Jackson takes this character somewhere in the future. I didn't like the way Ivy cozied up to Pescoli"s son Jeremy. The book could have earned 5 stars if Alvarez had a bigger role. Obviously, I love the way Pescoli and Alvarez work together in previous novels of this series. I didn't know who the killer was until the end which really picked up in action.

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Hodder & Stoughton for an advance copy of Willing to Die, the eighth novel to feature Montana based detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli.

    Regan Pescoli is mulling over a return to work after the birth of her son, Tucker, when she receives a call to say her sister, Brindel, and her husband Paul have been murdered in San Francisco and that her other sisters are unable to get in contact with Paul’s sons or Brindel’s daughter, Ivy.

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Hodder & Stoughton for an advance copy of Willing to Die, the eighth novel to feature Montana based detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli.

    Regan Pescoli is mulling over a return to work after the birth of her son, Tucker, when she receives a call to say her sister, Brindel, and her husband Paul have been murdered in San Francisco and that her other sisters are unable to get in contact with Paul’s sons or Brindel’s daughter, Ivy. The boys turn up but Ivy is on the run, eventually turning up at Regan’s door and hiding something.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Willing to Die, which is much the same as it’s predecessors in that it is an exciting read with plenty of twists and turns. The novel opens with a mystery, an unnamed woman grieving the death of a son she was forced to give up and vowing vengeance. On whom and why are only revealed at the denouement but it’s a cracker. Throughout the novel there is a sense of tension, mostly based on Ivy’s efforts to get away, and a curiosity inducing mystery surrounding what Ivy’s hiding. I found it compulsive reading which I finished in one sitting, desperate to know what was coming next. The pace never lets up so there is never a dull moment. In the cold light of day and on reflection the plot pushes the boundaries of credibility with a convenient get out explanation but, at the time of reading, it doesn’t matter as Ms Jackson has woven her storytelling magic to produce an enjoyable, readable novel.

    Regan Pescoli and Selena Alvarez have become old friends to me over the course of the series so it is a bit disappointing to see her reduced to a supporting role in this novel as I always enjoy their interactions and squabbling. Jasmine Tanaka, the SFPD detective taking a lead role in the investigation, is no substitute, even if she closely resembles Selena. Regan’s life is fleshed out in the novel where her non existent relationship with her sisters and fractious one with her children are explored.

    Willing to Die is a good read which I have no hesitation in recommending.

    Lisa Jackson is one of the best in the business and this, the eighth thriller in the Montana series, is a particularly nail-biting instalment. We are reacquainted with Detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli as they investigate the murders of some of Pescoli's family. This, of course, hits a little too close to home for her and is a tough case to crack having just returned from maternity leave. With all the excitement and twists, turns and misdirection of the previous books this is a superb

    Lisa Jackson is one of the best in the business and this, the eighth thriller in the Montana series, is a particularly nail-biting instalment. We are reacquainted with Detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli as they investigate the murders of some of Pescoli's family. This, of course, hits a little too close to home for her and is a tough case to crack having just returned from maternity leave. With all the excitement and twists, turns and misdirection of the previous books this is a superb thriller.

    Ms Jackson creates a crackling tension and edge of your seat suspense which runs for the duration of the novel, and because it was so addictive I read it in a single compulsive sitting. The action is nonstop, the pace brisk and that ending; phew, what a corker. Alvarez and Pescoli are a dynamic pair and we learn more about them in book eight. Each of these instalments can easily be enjoyed as a standalone as each story is contained to that particular book. I look forward to the next one. Many thanks to Mulholland Books for an ARC.
