The sound every killer waits for.

When there’s no escape from a cold-blooded killer, scream, scream as loud as you can…or it might be the last sound you ever make . . . .

As white-hot flames sear the dark night, a killer waits in the trees, watching the mill burn, listening for the screams—the only proof that justice has finally begun for the sins of long-ago.

For journalist Cassidy Buchanan, this inferno is a living nightmare: a reminder of the horrible, mysterious fire that destroyed her wealthy family seventeen years ago—and of Brig McKenzie, the handsome hellraiser accused of setting the blaze.

That tragic crime has never been solved, and already the whispers have begun in Prosperity, Oregon: Another fire, more deaths, and one common denominator—Cassidy herself.

Cassidy came home to Prosperity to put the past behind her, but it seems the past isn’t finished with Cassidy. Someone doesn’t want her to uncover the chilling truth…someone who has killed before and will kill again…a cold-blooded psychopath who is only waiting to hear her….FINAL SCREAM.

Review: There’s a reason why I like Lisa Jackson. The woman sure knows how to write a damn good story!

Lots of characters as individual as possible. Some you like, some you can really despise.

I liked the setting as well. The country is one setting that I love when filled with intrigue, suspense and suspicious, devious characters.

Cassidy struck me as a smart, headstrong young woman, at the beginning, and the same later. Brig had a good head on his shoulders. Chase, full of ambition, wanting nothing but respect.

I thought the plot was excellent, filled with unexpected twists and turns. Just when I think I’ve got it figured out, something happens that throws my theory to hell. Any author who can do that to me is an author worth reading. She canput you into the mind of the killer and you still can’t figure out who it really is. I love the way this author can stick you right in the middle of everyone and still leave you feeling like you can’t quite graspt what it is you’re missing until it’s too late.
