Description
New Orleans is beginning to be afraid ...A prostitute lies strangled in a seedy French Quarter hotel room. Miles away, in a rambling plantation house on the sultry shores of Lake Ponchartrain, popular late-night radio host Dr. Samantha Leeds receives a threatening phone call. All in a day's work for a celebrity. Who would think to link the two? A second hooker's corpse turns up. Samantha's ominous caller persists, along with a mysterious female claiming to be a woman from her past - a woman who's been dead for years. With Detective Rick Bentz convinced that the serial killer prowling the shadowy streets of New Orleans is somebody close to Samantha, she doesn't dare trust anyone. Especially not Ty Wheeler, her seductive new neighbour who seems to know more about her than a stranger should. Somebody has discovered Samantha's darkest secret. Somebody is convinced that lives must be sacrificed to pay for her sins. So far, the victims have been strangers. But as a cunning, cold-blooded killer grows bolder, Samantha wonders in dread if she will be the next to die ...
Reviews
'As a beach read, this is a cracker. Read it at night and it certainly will keep you up. For after the prologue, Jackson slips into her real agenda, and out of your comfort zone.' -- Courier Mail, Brisbane on DEEP FREEZE 'Suspenseful ... shocking ... will leave readers on the edges of their seats.' -- Booklist on ABSOLUTE FEAR 'WITHOUT MERCY blends murder mystery with romance and religious conspiracy and should appeal to fans of all three.' -- West Australian on WITHOUT MERCY 20100401 'A fast-paced and surprisingly complex story... . The depiction of the protagonist... reaches an unusual depth, and the crisp, skillful language infuse every sentence with suspense...will keep readers riveted.' -- Publisher's Weekly on WITHOUT MERCY 20100401 'A fast moving thriller with plenty of twists and turns, and an easy flowing style that readily catches the reader up in its thrall.' -- Canberra Times on MALICE 20091001
