The New York Times bestselling author of Hot Blooded returns to steamy New Orleans and the French Quarter with her supremely sexy and suspenseful new novel.With every book she pens, Lisa Jackson reaffirms her status as one of today's most talented, original and compelling writers of romantic suspense. She is loved and admired for her ability to create stories that are powerfully emotional, hauntingly evocative, intensely sensual and suspenseful. In "Cold Blooded," she takes readers back to the sultry New Orleans of her New York Times bestseller Hot Blooded, as another serial killer holds the city in his terrifying thrall.

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.

Weeks later, another violent vision shatters Olivia Bechet's sleep. Convinced a serial killer is stalking the city, Olivia turns to detective Rick Bentz, But the jaded cop doesn't believe her — even when a second body turns up, slain in exactly the bizarre, ritualistic manner Olivia described.

Frustrated by Bentz's skepticism, Olivia still can't deny 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.
