With Hot Blooded, Lisa Jackson follows firmly in the footsteps of fellow New York Times bestselling authors Iris Johansen and Tami Hoag. An acknowledged master at crafting tales of romantic suspense, Jackson now weaves even stronger threads of tension and intrigue into this pulse-pounding tale.

A prostitute lies strangled in a seedy French Quarter hotel room. Miles away, in a rambling plantation house on the sultry shores of Lake Ponchartrain, popular late-night radio host Dr. Samanatha Leeds receives a threatening crank call. Soon, another hooker’s corpse turns up. Samantha’s ominous caller persists, along with a mysterious female claiming to be a woman from her past—a woman who’s been dead for years. With Detective Rick Bentz convinced that the serial killer prowling the shadowy streets of New Orleans is somebody close to Samantha, she doesn’t dare trust anyone. Especially Ty Wheeler, her seductive new neighbor who seems to know more about her than a stranger should.

Someone has discovered Samantha’s darkest secret. Somebody is convinced that lives must be sacrificed to pay for her sins. So far, the victims have been strangers. Prostitutes. But as a cunning, cold-blooded killer grows bolder, Samantha wonders in dread if she will be the next to die.

    " This was my second attempt to read Hot Blooded and I quit at 100 or so pages in. Too much emphasis on the radio station and the "nutjob caller." It was overkill 1/3 of the way in and I wasn't about to drag myself through the whole book just to be bored to tears. "

    " A pick-up for a quick read for the exercise bike...Part of Jackson's "New Orleans" series...this mystery, set in New Orleans, involves a serial killer, "Father James," with religious overtones...I'm concerned with the typical literati condemnation of religion that has emerged in the last 20 years...as the book resolved itself none of the anti-religion elements emerged so fears were unfounded...I enjoyed the introduction the detectives Rick Bentz and Reuben Montoya and will look forward to continuing the series over time "

    " I ended up really liking this book. Last night I thought I would not be able to finish it because I was having trouble with a lot of the internal dialogue Sam had continuously throughout the book. It started feeling redundant and I closed the book. I went back to it today because I had planned to go to the end because I really wanted to know who was killing all those people. Lisa Jackson set up a really good old-school mystery. I miss these sometimes when I am in Urban Fantasy land for months on end. But, I was looking for books that were set in New Orleans so I was drawn to this book because it came up in my search. Part of my disappointment was that it was more about the people and less about the city. I really wanted it to be the other way around. But, I was happily surprised. She had some really good red herrings in there and it got to the point where I kept changing my mind on who I thought was the killer. Good read! "

    " If I could give this book 3.5 I would. Overall, I enjoyed it. I'm a sucker for a mystery. But it felt incredibly long to me. There were a few surprises along the way, but some were predictable. The ending also seemed a little hurried. I remember thinking, after all of that, it just kindof ended abruptly. I did like how you got to know every character. I also love that the setting is New Orleans. The next book in this series is Cold- Blooded, and I've already downloaded it to my kindle. Good Job Lisa Jackson! "
