His Vengeance Will Be Repeated.  .  .

A woman's slashed, incinerated corpse is found in a seedy New Orleans apartment. Her killer is certain there were no witnesses, unaware that his every move was seen by a beautiful stranger--from her bed in a bayou cottage on the outskirts of town.  .  .

And Repeated.  .  .

Weeks later, another violent vision shatters Olivia Bechet's sleep. Convinced a serial killer is stalking the city, Olivia turns to the authorities. But jaded detective Rick Bentz doesn't believe her--even when a second body turns up, slain in exactly the same bizarre, ritualistic manner Olivia described.  .  .

And Repeated.  .  .

As New Orleans panics in the icy grip of a merciless killer, Olivia is frustrated by Bentz's skepticism--and captivated by her attraction to him. But soon her dreams are invaded by images of another murder. One that has yet to be committed. This time, Olivia recognizes not only the victim's face--but the murderer's. And both are closer than she ever imagined.  .  .

In New Orleans, the killer left behind a carved up incinerated corpse with no witnesses to the vicious homicide. No eye witnesses that is because Olivia Bechet observed every slash and burn though she was sleeping several miles away from the crime scene in her cottage. Thinking that she suffered through a particularly nasty nightmare, Olivia ignores her dream until it reoccurs a few weeks later with a different victim. She feels she is somehow connected to this ¿priestly¿ serial killer and goes to the authorities only to have Detective Rick Bentz scoff at her claims.

As the Big Easy panics with a rising death count, Olivia continues to press Rick and his younger partner Reuben Montoya into believing her even if the senior detective scornfully laughs at her assertions. However, the culprit sees what she sees through her eyes and believes Olivia knows too much. Now she dreams that she is the next victim. She pleads with the two cops to keep her safe, but Rick remains more than skeptical as he concludes that the woman he loves is a lunatic.

COLD BLOODED is an exciting serial killer thriller that stars a wonderful heroine and Rick, a secondary character from the prequel HOT BLOODED. The story line engages the reader mostly because of the interplay between Rick and Olivia. The killer is standard off the shelf stock while the graphic descriptions of the sexual crimes are not everyone¿s café du lait though the scenes provide the depth to what the heroine faces. Lisa Jackson provides fans of serial killer plots, police procedurals, and romantic suspense with an entertaining tale.

I gave it a 4 star because it started out really slow and took a few chapters to get into it. Once the story line really picked up it was a GREAT read. Kept you guessing up until the end on who the murderer was. I would recommend it to anyone that likes murder mystery books.

I have to say this is my first book by Lisa Jackson. If it were on t.v. I would not have watched it due to the violence. I thought I had figured out who the killer was but boy was I wrong! The language was a little strong for me and the sexual descriptions I think I could've gone without. I have a pretty good imagination and so that part of it and the very descriptive parts of the murder were why I only gave 4 stars, plus I had a little problem keeping track of who was who I was reading about until near the end. Good spellbinder tho!

I only gave it 4 stars because of numerous editing errors. ie: duplicate words within sentences; descriptions regarding a character changing positions and then a repeat of that same thing a paragraph or two later. These things really disrupt the flow of the read. The plot and character development would rate 5 stars. A great sequel to the first in the series - Hot Blooded. This book contains graphic violence and descriptions of the murders, explicit sexual scenes, a small amount of animal cruelty and some occasional foul language. A great adult read but definitely not for children, young adults or those easily offended by this type of subject matter. A who-done-it that will keep you guessing until the end. Compelling read and really looking forward to #3 in the New Orleans Series.

I enjoyed this book. I have recently discovered Lisa Jackson and I am now a fan of her writing. She gets right into the head of the perp and lets us all know how their mind works. This book kept me on the edge of my seat. And I look forward to reading the entire New Orleans series.
