Born to Die by Lisa Jackson
  

Lovereading view...

A series of deaths of women who bear a strange resemblance to each other alerts a doctor in a small American town that something odd is up. So begins a truly puzzling, beautifully convoluted tale that will keep you guessing through to the imaginative end. A mixture of family loyalties and hatreds, some fine detection and a well-rounded plot make for a most satisfying read. Good one, she is an author well worth investing in.

If you like Lisa Jackson you might also like to read books by Karen Rose, Katia Lief and Mary Burton.

Synopsis

Born to Die by Lisa Jackson

At first Kacey Lambert thinks it's a sad, strange coincidence. Two women with an amazing resemblance to the small-town doctor die suddenly. But detective Selena Alvarez suspects otherwise. An autopsy confirms that one of the women had traces of poison in her blood ...And Kacey has started to notice ties between the dead women's lives and her own. They were all close in age. They were born within a few miles of each other. And they all have ties with Trace O'Halleran, the single father Kacey is dating. Soon more lookalikes are dying and as the body count rises, the killer gets bolder and more brutal. All Kacey knows is that it's only a matter of time before hers is the next name on a list of those who were born to die.

Reviews

'In a word: clever'
The Herald Sun

'[ALMOST DEAD contains an] excellent subplot revelation that few readers will see coming'
The Sydney Morning Herald

'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.'
Publishers Weekly
