"Terrifying. . .A Creepy Thriller." –Publishers Weekly

When New Orleans detective Reuben Montoya is called to investigate a murder with his partner Rick Bentz, he's shocked to recognize the victim. Camille Renard, an old high-school friend, was found on the altar of St. Marguerite's cathedral, dressed in a yellowed bridal gown and viciously garroted. . .

"Will Satisfy Series Fans As Well As Readers Who Enjoy Lisa Gardner And Linda Fairstein." –Library Journal

Valerie Houston's younger sister, Camille, had a knack for making bad choices. She left Texas after falling for Val's soon-to-be ex-husband, Slade. But as Val digs deeper into Camille's death, she realizes how little she really knows about her sister and their shared past.

"A Nail-Biting Tale Of Dangerous Secrets And Deadly Passions." --Booklist

Soon more bodies are found brutally slaughtered. No one is beyond suspicion. No one is safe--least of all Valerie, whose connection to a twisted case is closer, and more dangerous, than she ever could have imagined. For this killer knows all, forgives nothing, and will not rest until Valerie becomes the next to pay for her sins. . .

"The plot machinations are wonderful and emotional turmoil akin to the work of James Lee Burke and Tony Hillerman helps make Devious a stunning success." –The Providence Journal

"Explosively riveting." –The Providence Journal

About the Author:

Lisa Jackson has been writing romantic fiction for fifteen years. Over sixty of her books have been published and reprinted in more than a dozen foreign languages. A single mother, she is a native of Oregon, where she still resides with her two teenage sons. Lisa is often asked what is the key to her success, and her unfailing answer is a keen imagination, incredible friends, loving family, and always, loads of laughter. As Oscar Wilde is purported to have said, "Life is too important to be taken seriously."

From Publishers Weekly:

Someone is strangling novice nuns in Jackson's terrifying if overwrought seventh Bentz and Montoya novel (after Malice). When NOPD homicide detectives Reuben Montoya and Rick Bentz arrive at the first crime scene, the chapel of St. Marguerite's Convent, Montoya recognizes the murder victim, Sister Camille, as his old high school girlfriend, Cammie Renard. In another coincidence, the novice sister who discovered Camille's body, Lucia Costa, once dated Montoya's brother. On top of that, one of the prime suspects is a high school classmate of Montoya's, Fr. Francis O'Toole, who may have had an affair with the victim. As Cammie's sister, Valerie, a former Texas cop now a New Orleans Garden District B&B owner, struggles with a surprise visit from her estranged husband, more nuns succumb to a crazed killer. Val learns more than she bargained for about her past—and Cammie's—at a nearby orphanage in a creepy thriller sure to please Jackson's many fans. (Apr.)
