Read What Doesn't Kill Her Online Free - Jordan Rivera is an ordinary kid with an ordinary family, until a vicious killer takes it all away, sparing her, but leaving her broken. The murders of her father, mother and brother destroy something inside Jordan, who spends ten long, mute years in an institution. Catching a glimpse of a news report about another family slaying, Jordan at last breaks her silence. Now she’s out, and she molds herself—body and mind—into an instrument of justice.
While a young detective pursues the case on his own, Jordan teams up with members of her support group, people like her, damaged by violent crime. They have their own stories of pain, heartache, and vengeance denied. With their help, Jordan will track down the killer before he can ravage any more lives. Her life – and her sanity – depend on it.

Don’t mess with Jordan Rivera. Who is she? You ignorant piece of shit, she’s the one that left me with a broken arm and spitting up teeth like I was a water fountain in the middle of Central Park. She went psycho on me after I tried to take her wallet, and you, you unconscious bastard, left...

I think what disappointed me so much about this novel is the disparity between the strength of its first chapter and the steep decline over the following twenty chapters. The first chapter with its sheer terror, gritty violence and nail-biting tension sets the stage for a page-turning title. Unfo...

Over the year since I first discovered his work, Max Allan Collins has become one of my favorite writers. He seems to do everything well: thrillers, straight crime, his tie-ins, non-fiction. It doesn't matter.
WHAT DOESN'T KILL HER deals with a serial killer, not a new subject to be sure. But even...

No she won't.

I received this book as an ARC from netgalley.com and I am happy to have had the opportunity.
This book was just okay for me. The building of suspense and the unveiling of the killer were very exciting. I had absolutely no idea who the killer would be and was shocked with the discovery. I did, how...

Collins just keep getting better and better!
Collins, along with collaborator Matthew Clemens, always delivers a well written tale with a few twists and turns. What Doesn't kill Her is among their best. Smoothly written, fast-paced, with a few kinks here and there -- what more could I ask?

I was hoping for more, but it was all very predictable (I figured out the identity of the killer way too early) and the characters were wooden. I listened to it on audiobook, which helped me stick with it, but the narration made a lot of the characters sound annoying. I did like the murders and J...

I didn't want to put it down
I was captivated almost from the first page. A young girl named Jordan survives an attack on her family and vows NOT to tell the murder's story as that is what he wants. She remains quite for 10 years until a news story makes her start thinking about this monster, and...

Not Max Allan Collins at his best - this standalone novel is very slow moving until the final third, contrasting with his tightly written hard-boiled books like the Quarry series. The final third does pick up the pace, but I did guess the end from quite a long way out.
