Book Description

Fresh out of law school, London Vaughn discovers there's no room in Denver's prominent law firms for a middle-of-the-class graduate. While barely making ends meet as a waitress, she encounters a beautiful woman who engages her services irrespective that she has no experience, no office and no reputation. Almost immediately, London and her client are thrust into the deadly throes of a high-stakes international thriller of unimaginable scope. (395 p.)

Praise for R.J. Jagger from the publishing industry’s most reputable and trustworthy book reviewers:

“As engaging as the debut [Witness Chase], this exciting blend of police procedural and legal thriller recalls the early works of Scott Turow and Lisa Scottoline.” Library Journal

"The well-crafted storyline makes this a worthwhile read. Stuffed with gratuitous sex and over-the-top violence, this novel has a riveting plot." Kirkus Reviews

“Verdict: The pacing is relentless in this debut, a hard-boiled novel with a shocking ending. The supershort chapters will please those who enjoy a James Patterson–­style page-turner” Library Journal

A “clever and engrossing mystery tale involving gorgeous women, lustful men and scintillating suspense.” Foreword Magazine

“Part of what makes this thriller thrilling is that you sense there to be connections among all the various subplots; the anticipation of their coming together keeps the pages turning.” Booklist

“This is one of the best thrillers I’ve read yet.” New Mystery Reader

“Boatloads of fun.” Booklist

“A throwback to the era of Mike Hammer and Shell Scott, [Nick] Teffinger is old school all the way—and that means good retro fun.” Booklist

“A superb thriller and an exceptional read.” Midwest Book Review

"A well told tale with a masterful blend of intrigue, murder, greed, lust, and that little touch of horror will keep you reading." New Mystery Reader

“Brilliant! Ancient Prey held me glued to the edge of my seat and kept me in wonder of what was around the next corner of this spine-tingling, sensational work of fiction.” Midwest Book Review

Denver homicide detective Nick Teffinger "leaves for Japan on an unsanctioned pursuit. As [Teffinger] draws closer to the killer, more victims are discovered, and the pattern of a twisted murderer revealed. Drawn into the intrigue is a cast of provocative characters who move in and out of Tokyo’s gritty underworld. Verdict This fast-paced book offers fans of commercial thrillers a twisty, action-packed thrill ride." Library Journal

This book "is creative and captivating. It features bold characters, witty dialogue, exotic locations, and non-stop action. The pacing is spot-on, a solid combination of intrigue, suspense, and eroticism. A first-rate thriller, this book is damnably hard to put down. It’s a tremendous read.” Foreword Reviews

“Another masterpiece of action and suspense. [Jagger] has outdone himelf." New Mystery Reader (Dead in Hong Kong)

“I love the way this man writes! I adore his style. There is something about it that makes me feel as if I’m someplace I’m not supposed to be, seeing things I’m not supposed to see and that is so delicious.” Rebecca Forester, USA Today Bestselling Author

“A terrifying, gripping cross between James Patterson and John Grisham. Jagger has created a truly killer thriller.” J.A. Konrath

Previously published under a different name.

5.0 out of 5 stars New library for Me! July 25, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am so excited to have discovered this author. Now I feel like I have a new library to read. You connect w/ the characters, there is a beginning , middle, end. This author is writing like they want to establish a fan base- not pump out another read (which some of my favorite authors have been doing lately.) Be open to everything goes when you pick this up- not too graphic, not too romantic, not too descriptive, no empty 'filler'... just a constant story progressing- murder, evil, plotting, crime, thrilling. Does anyone know....I heard this is actually Sandra Brown aka R.J. Jagger??? Sandra Brown writes a LOT more sex than this 'author' (if it is her).

2.0 out of 5 stars Highschool Essay February 25, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Everybody drinks coffee at all times. The women are all gorgeous and they all are in love with the (rather dim-witted) police detective who never can remember the names of prior suspects. The author must have followed some writing manual: always use strong verbs - "fire up" the computer, or "killing" the engine. Then there are the frequent "suddenly the phone rang." I believe other reviewers mentioned this, but the wasted paper space between 'chapters' which aren't really new chapters but a continuation of the previous one, or

when

is extremely annoying after a while. The book started fairly promising, but the repeated 'ass' and names like Dick Zucker, might have been funny but got tiring.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty ordinary October 12, 2010
By BK
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm surprised at all the really positive reviews for this book. There are some monster holes in the plot which ruined it for me. The characters were simplistic caricatures rather than fleshed out characters. The legal references were not well researched. I found the author over-explained some of the plot developments too - the bit where the PI says "it's all so complicated!" in reference to a relatively simple legal concept is laughable. I do think this book is pretty low-brow stuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars The author takes the easy way out September 11, 2009
By Bob Day
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author takes the easy way out. At the end of the book, he does a freeze frame on plot development and spends the last two chapters giving a deus ex machina explanation of what actually happened and tying up loose ends. No excuse for such a weak ending. It was a very enjoyable book though, up to the final two chapters. So, three stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Silly "legal" thriller June 26, 2011
By theschv
Format:Kindle Edition
The story is relatively entertaining, but too simplistic to receive more than 2 or 3 stars. From a legal perspective, it's a joke. The characters don't have any depth, and their jumping into conclusions is often bizarre. The explanations in the last chapter are silly; I was happy to read them mostly because I wanted to be done with the book and move on to something else.

Still.... the book is somewhat entertaining and not too bad for a weekend with nothing better to do. If you like *good* legal thrillers, however, look elsewhere -- there are much better books out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Attorney's Run January 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Overall, I really loved the book. I enjoyed the way the author dedicated chapters to key characters and jumped from one to the other. I loved all the details and how all of the character's stories, while seemingly separate, meshed together. I was a little disappointed in the ending, not in what happened, but what the author didn't tell us in getting to that ending. The rest of the book had details galore and then story just ends with a few pages of wrap up, which kind of bummed me out... I still loved it and I still would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Great To Find a New Mystery Author July 2, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a reader of every mystery/thriller that I can get my hands on, I was so pleased to discover R.J. Jagger and Attorney's Run. No, he is not new, but I just found him. As an attorney, my favorite thrillers involve attorneys and this book (and this author) does not disappoint. The book was easy to get into, easy to read and a pleasure from cover to cover. I have now downloaded (kindle reader) 3 more of his titles. I am sure that I will eventually go through every one of his books.

More About the Author

The Nick Teffinger Thrillers

My series featuring Denver homicide detective Nick Teffinger started in 2006 and is nearly twenty books strong now. These titles can be read in any order; each is a standalone book complete within its own four corners. Also, Nick is always the same age. You can start with any book and read it first even if you've never read any other book in the series.

The Bryson Wilde Thrillers

Private investigator Bryson Wilde lives in an edgy 1952 world where nothing is black and white, cigarettes dangle from ruby-red lips, and even the simplest case has more dangerous beats than whiskey-soaked jazz. It's a good thing he has his trusty little Alabama at his side, otherwise he would have been dead a long time ago and his many shadowy files would never have come to light. Read these little gems in any order. Each is a standalone story complete within its four corners.

Thanks for visiting!
