Publisher's Summary

In this deviously volatile, deliciously creepy standalone suspense novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson, the sole survivor of a brutal family massacre must uncover the shocking truth about the fateful night that left her forever marked…

Has she already had her final chance to be the final girl?

All her life, she’s been the girl who survived. Orphaned at age seven after a horrific killing spree at her family’s Oregon cabin, Kara McIntyre is still searching for some kind of normal. But now, twenty years later, the past has come thundering back. Her brother, Jonas, who was convicted of the murders, has unexpectedly been released from prison. The press is in a frenzy again. And suddenly, Kara is receiving cryptic messages from her big sister, Marlie—who hasn’t been seen or heard from since that deadly Christmas Eve when she hid little Kara in a closet with a haunting, life-saving command: Don’t make a sound.

As people close to her start to die horrible deaths, Kara, who is slowly and surely unraveling, believes she is the killer’s ultimate target. 

Kara survived once. But will she survive again? How many times can she be the girl who survived?

Great novel

Lisa Jackson hit a home run with this one! You’re unsure of “who did it” until near the end.

Good Story Ruined by Reader

Aweful. Kept going it would get better. not one character is likable. Scott voice is good but she needs to work on her cadence. The entire book was read like a question.

not my favorite, annoying characters

The main character is childish and annoying. I spent most of the book fussing at her antics.

I don't exactly know what to say!!

I love Lisa Jackson but this book wasn't the best of the best. It was good with the exception of overusing adjectives and adverbs. I am not a writer but as a reader/listener there is times when over use of description can be frustrating and this was one of those times. I still recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery but be prepared for the frustration. The main character was beyond annoying at times but that's the way the story goes. I wasn't shocked by the ending but the story line held my interest.

Repetitive

Too repetitive throughout the entire story. This became very boring; hard to finish. More narrators could have helped with the number of characters.

Couldn’t do it. I’ll read it instead

Not all narrators are for everyone. And this one is definitely not for me unfortunately I tried couldn’t do it. I heard the book is really good so that’s a shame. When I have time or over a long weekend I’ll buy it on kindle and read it.

A great read/ listen

This story I truly enjoyed because the ending was not what I thought it was! And the illustrator was bright and kept my attention.
