Editorial Reviews

Review

“Jagger creates an exciting blend of police procedural and legal thriller that recalls the early works of Scott Turow and Lisa Scottoline.” — Library Journal

“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.” — Foreword Reviews

“A terrifying, gripping cross between James Patterson and John Grisham. A truly killer thriller.” — J. A. Konrath, Anthony and Barry Award-nominated author

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!

I reviewed the first book by this author already "Lawyer's Run". I can't wait to read the next book. Not a fan of lawyer mystery, these books are great anyway. I plan to read through all the books in this series- the characters, so far, are not repeating (dif characters, dif storyline in each book) So you can start w any book & not get confused. Great author, great story, moves along w/o getting sluggish. Not too much info on crap- author focuses on storyline, characters, and progression- not too much "I want to educate the reader" junk. I hope this author gets more exposure.

Firstly, thank you for making the books available to Kindle Australia users. Many of my loved authors are still to come on board for us but the upside of this is it made me look at other authors, hence I found RJ Jagger.
The book is well written in a way that makes it very easy to read and not want to put it down. The characters are realistic, the plot is realistic and it's not over loaded with intimate details of how something works which only serves to add the "boring" factor.
Nick Teffinger is a detective working in Denver. He's a smart fellow with a 6th sense and a desire to drill down into the facts and keep investigating when others would call it quits. He has a mildly arrogant style that comes with a cop who has seen it all and cracked a lot of cases. It's not all work and no play for Nick, he has a wild, new girlfriend who may well end up being a suspect. Enter a socially detached chap who hires himself out to find girls of a certain type for clients who derive great pleasure from torturing and killing them. Now enters two young lawyers who over hear a conversation between two of the firm's partners which sends them off on a pseudo investigator path which of course eventually puts them in harms way.
Normally I can work out the end by the half way point but the author brings all of these facets together in a way
that kept me 100% interested until the last page.
I have already purchased several more of RJ Jagger's books and I wish him well with his future novels.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Thomas Einstein on April 11, 2010
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a noirish slasher/thriller/detective mystery. On the plus side it is extremely readable with a terse prose that avoids the endless word processor enabled verbiage of so many modern books. The plot is suspenseful with some good twists. On the negative side, some of the violence is very graphic and depraved. The characters are super stereotyped: eg the bigger than life hard boiled he-man detective that women find so hard to resist. The women are to the most part voluptuous horny "babes." At least most of them are also intelligent. In spite of the cartoonish caricatures, I still enjoyed the book, and will try some of RJ Jagger's other books,

Jagger's third installment in the Teffinger series finds him hunting the killer of random young women - killed horrifically and buried in shallow graves in the high desert. One of the young women is linked to Davica Holland, a beautiful, wealthy bi-sexual. Teffinger is attracted but must clear her before he can become involved.

Aspen is a young, female lawyer hired to work at a prestigous Denver law firm. One of the young women pulled from the shallow graves is a former associate at the firm. Aspen was her intern the previous summer. She cannot let the mystery of her death go and attempts to investigate.

The story lines run together and find Teffinger, Aspen and Davica intertwined with a cold blooded killer for hire.

The story is somewhat implausible and there is enough sex to keep Heffner happy. But the writing moves quickly and Nick Teffinger is likable.

Not bad for what it is ... a quick, summer read.

Over the last years (once I discovered this genre) I have read thousands of police procedurals, legal thrillers and psychological suspense stories and having done so, I feel I am qualified to rate these types of books. Put it this way, I know what I like! And what I like, in this instance, is this writer. So much, in fact, that after I read one of his eBooks for free I then went on to purchase another to read straight away.
The characters are strong and induce in the reader equally strong reactions - like, love or loathe them but not likely to be indifferent to them. The story grabs you from the beginning, as all the best novels do, and there are no 'flat' or boring sections to the book. This is a skilled writer of fiction who could take his place among the best, if he has not already.

This one is just as fast paced as the others. Teffinger is a Denver detective who keeps finding serial killers. The story is told through Teffinger's vantage point as well as through the eyes of a young lawyer and the eyes of a fiendish killer. It is nonstop live action from cover to cover except when Teffinger runs low on coffee. Highly recommend this book as a police thriller.

The story has many deceptive twists and turns. You kind of guess who one of the main bad guys are but the ending comes as a complete surprise. We'll done,

This book is poorly written and superficial. The characters are barely developed and their dialogue is unrealistic and unsuitable for them. The editing is shoddy, for example, there's a description of a wealthy neighborhood with "tutor" style houses. Also, one of the characters is said to "shutter" when disgusted with something that happens. (maybe there's a problem using the letter "d"? There are so many excellent lawyer/crime novels out there -- this one is not worth the time and effort.
