Overview

"Taut, twisty. . .Malice displays the skilled Jackson at her best yet." --The Providence Journal

The perfect moment is here at last. The humiliation and pain he put her through is about to be repaid. Soon Rick Bentz will know the torment of losing the person he loves most--and better yet, he'll have to watch. . .

"Gripping. . .Jackson heightens the creep factor." --Publishers Weekly

Since the accident that nearly claimed his life, New Orleans detective Rick Bentz has been on edge. That must explain why his mind is playing tricks, making him think he sees his first wife, Jennifer. His dead wife. He can't bring himself to tell his new wife, Olivia, about the sightings, or his fears that he's losing his sanity. To find answers, he has to return to Los Angeles, where Jennifer died. And it's there that the murders begin. . .

"Plenty of clever plot turns. . .the suspense builds from the beginning." --Fresh Fiction

Each victim is linked to Jennifer's past, and each corpse points to Bentz as the prime suspect. But the worst is yet to come. Because now Olivia is missing, and the only way to save her is to uncover the terrifying truth about a woman he never really knew--and a hatred that runs deep enough to kill. . .

    Malice

    I waited eagerly for Malice to hit the shelves and I wasn't disappointed. It was un-put-downable. Full credit to Lisa Jackson for writing so eloquently of Bentz's frustration (I know he's not real, but his persistence in the face of enmity was particularly well done!).
    Lisa Jackson's books are very well plotted and her characterisation is exceptional (hence my complete addiction to the New Orleans crew). My measure of a good book is one where time becomes a concept and not some strident intrusion into my pleasure. Malice made me forget everything else and had me glued to every word.
    Well done Lisa Jackson, but don't waste time sitting on your laurels.

    An action-packed suspense thriller

    Twelve years ago Rick Bentz divorced his cheating wife Jennifer. Soon after ending his marriage, Jennifer died in a car crash. He identified the corpse. Rick left LAPD taking a job with the New Orleans police and remarried Olivia.<BR/><BR/>While driving during a storm, Rick is involved in an accident that hospitalizes him. He suddenly smells Jennifer¿s sweet perfume and sees her in his hospital room. After being discharged a package containing a death certificate and photos of a woman who looks like Jennifer arrives with a Culver City, California postmark. Deciding he needs to know the truth but conceals from his wife his fear that he is losing his mind, Rick heads to California wondering how she can be alive when he saw her body. At the same he arrives in the Los Angeles area, his last unsolved case at LAPD is reopened as the Twenty-one Killer apparently returns strangling identical twins on their 21st birthday. Bentz knows somehow he is the link, but not by whom or why.<BR/><BR/>The key to this action-packed suspense thriller is the viewpoint of the Bentz adversary as the audience sees a different perspective as to what happened a dozen years ago and the target of vengeance may be Bentz, but the avenue of achievement is through Olivia. The story line is action-packed from the first time Bentz¿s olfactory sense kicks in and never slows down as the haunting of the sleuth is by someone overflowing with MALICE towards him and his loved ones tales its¿ toll. (see LOST SOULS for his daughter's thriller).<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    highly recommended

    I have enjoyed all the Lisa Jackson I've read so far. What I really like about this one is that I'm 90% done w/ the book, and I STILL haven't figured out who dunnit!

    Not up to par

    Don't get me wrong I love Lisa Jackson's books and Malice was not bad as a story goes. That said, I found this to be a let down after just finishing Lost Souls which I loved. I felt like the author couldn't make up her mind what type of book she wanted it to be. A little characture introduction/history at the beginning, 100 or so pages of Bentz seeing his dead ex-wife without much else going on, a little sex scene that wasn't related to the storyline, a little serial killer murder that also had no major impact on the story . . . it was like part of another book got thrown into this one by mistake, then a few murders, and finally the predictable ending. Like the book was written in sections and I found myself getting bored with each section after about 50 pages of it. I think it would have been so much better had each of these events/sections been mixed in together and not so seperated. I kept finding myself saying ok enough allready is anything else going to happen here and then just skimming pages to get to something interesting. Not my favorite of her books but it won't stop me from reading more of hers in the future.

    Great Read!

    This is a great suspense novel, I didn't want to put it down. Lisa Jackson has taken what could be just another suspense novel but added a twist that isn't expected. I strongly recommend it.

    A thrill a minute

    With an impeccable imagination, great characters and the baddest of bad guys Lisa Jackson gives us one impossible to put down novel.
    In Malice we re-visit Rick Benz Lisa's New Orleans detective who she features in many of her books. He's being haunted by his dead first wife, his current wife is keeping a secret and his life is in shambles due to his injury at the end of the book Lost Souls which features Rick's daughter Kristi. Malice was a thrill a minute keep you up til you finish it read, with lots of action, great suspense and a mind boggling mystery for you to figure out.
    This book will appeal to all lovers of great mystery, crime or suspense lovers

    a 3 star book that could have been 5

    A good book with lots of detail. It took me awhile to get into this book. There is alot of what I would call "page filling dribble drabble".
    Where the aurthor seems to go on and on "over" describing scenes and people and actions. But if you can get through all of that and still keep up with the basics of what is really going on, it is a good book. But in reality the author could have easily cut 40-50 pages out of the book without all the inane descriptions. Thats why I only left 3 stars.

    Great Read!

    I truly enjoyed reading the 6th book in Lisa Jackson's New Orleans Series, Malice. I really like the characters and have grown accustom to their personalities. The storyline in this book was great. I highly recommend it.

    Another great Lisa Jackson book

    Lisa Jackson is one of my favorite authors, have read almost all of her books. Have read all of the New Orleans series except #5 because of the reviews. Malice was a great book & so nice to get away from the whole religious/priest/nun theme for a change.
    I highly recommend this one!

    Couldn't keep reading it

    I have read other Lisa Jackson books and liked her other books in this series but I could not finish this one. It goes on and on and I finally bought a different book as I couldn't stay with this one. Would like to know how it ends but can't force myself to read it.
