Detective Jackson Mystery
review 1: Her books keep getting better and this one holds your interest. It gave you more info on one of Jackson’s partners, Det. Evans who proves she is quite capable. The twists and turns keep your interest and you keep trying to guess what is next as it takes off into different directions. Not sure if the sexual element was needed. The final chapter was also well done leaving the reader with questions for what might come about in the next book. When readers like the characters and the general theme it is easier to write a series, and keep your readers coming back for more. Well done.
review 2: ‘Dying For Justice’ by L.J. SellersPublished by Spellbinder Press, 2011. ISBN 9780983213833Gina Stahl, opens her eyes but has no idea where she is, all that comes in
... morestantly into her mind is ‘someone tried to kill me’.When she comes to full consciousness she discovers that she is in a long-term care facility and has been in a coma for two years, following her suicide attempt. Although her brain is fuzzy Gina tells the police that she had not tried to commit suicide but that that she had been attacked by a man wearing a ski mask, and that she believes the man to be her ex-husband. But, her ex-husband is a police officer, so who will believe her.The case is assigned to Detective Wade Jackson, who works with the violent crimes unit of the Eugene, Oregon Police Department. DI Wade has an excellent record of closing cases, but DI Wade is distracted by a letter received from Hector Vargas, the man accused, convicted and jailed for the murder of his parents, eleven years ago. Hector Vargas tells Jackson that he is innocent, and now that he is terminally ill with cancer he wants to set the record straight. Despite Jackson’s skepticism he knows that he has to follow it up.Jackson works both cases, but only manages it with the help of his 32-year-old trainee detective- Lara Evans. Soon Jackson finds himself in the unenviable position of suspecting other police officers. His re-opening and examining the circumstances surrounding his parents death brings him into contact with his brother with whom he has not seen for a number of years.The story of both cases grips the reader, with the narrative alternating between Jackson and Lara Evans. I could not put this book down - a fine piece of plotting that had me hooked, and turning the pages eager to know if, and how justice would be done for these two cold cases. Highly recommended.-----Lizzie Hayes less
