Wicked Lies

Jackson, Lisa & Nancy Bush. Zebra: Kensington. Jun. 2011. c.384p. ISBN 9781420103397. pap. $7.99. ROMANTIC SUSPENSE
It's been two years since Laura (Lorelie) Adderley has heard psychopathic serial killer Justice Turnbull's voice in her head. His sibilant whispers suddenly scratch at her mind, and she learns that he has escaped and is on his way back to Discovery Bay. It's clear that the gifted women of her family cloistered at Siren Song lodge—or anyone who gets in the way—are no longer safe, and it's only a matter of time before the slaughter begins again. As the bodies pile up, Laura finally reaches out to journalist Harrison Frost, but will it be in time and is he the "truth seeker" whom her sister Cassandra says she needs?
VERDICT Once again, siblings Jackson and Bush have teamed up on a chilling, slightly paranormal thriller that continues the story begun in Wicked Games. Terrifying, grim, and downright creepy, this is one that may give you second thoughts about visiting the Oregon coast (sorry, Oregon) and is definitely one you don't want to read alone at night. Best-selling authors in their own right, Jackson lives in the Pacific Northwest, and Bush lives in Oregon.
