Overview

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. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Another serial killer is wreaking havoc in New Orleans, and it's up to detectives Rick Bentz and Reuben Montoya, the protagonists from Jackson's previous thriller, Hot Blooded, to reign him in. This time around, the detectives are joined by Olivia Benchet, a reluctant psychic who hails from a highly dysfunctional family. Olivia's visions of a priestly killer who tortures and sacrifices young females provide Bentz and Montoya with their best clues, but Olivia may be the next victim if Bentz doesn't shrug off his cynicism concerning visions and romantic entanglements with the wild-haired psychic. Twice burned by his former wife, who had an affair with his half-brother, Bentz now lives for work and his rebellious, 19-year-old daughter, Kristi. The hunt for the murderer escalates when Olivia realizes her visions are a two-way mirror, and the killer has Kristi and Olivia in his sights. Jackson's sanctimonious serial killer, who refers to himself as The Chosen One, is stock, but the dynamics between her protagonists, particularly between Bentz and Olivia, are a welcome counterpoint to the violent action. Although some readers may be repulsed by the killer's sexually sadistic crimes, which are depicted in graphic detail,others will be intrigued by Jackson's portrayal of the grotesqueries that result when faith and family are perverted.

    exciting serial killer thriller

    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. <P>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. <P>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. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Great Read!!

    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.

    Put on your Sherlock Holmes Hat

    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!

    Very entertaining read.

    I found Cold Blooded, the second in Lisa Jackson's New Orleans Series quite good. It kept my interest, and has very likeable characters. On the read #3 in the series. Highly recommended.

    I recommend this book, if you enjoy a good thriller

    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.

    Jace

    S runs in laughing. Her black curls flying behind her. Isfrael follows. He look at the mud on her dress and frowns. "I'M gonna have to clean that up." He mutters. Jace grins and sticks out her tongue. "Thats because I haveto clean up after you. Making your bed and cleaning your half of the room. And the nuetral space." She retorts. "Well i have to drain ypur animals and put them in blood bags, do the landry, and pick up your Non-Diet-Dr. Pepper from the store. Plus you leave the cans Everywhere!" They bicker for a few moments before addressing everyone else. "In case you havent the memo-WE'RE BACK!"
