More About the Author

There's a thin line between me and my heroine Sasha Jackson, although I've never worked at a phone sex hotline, and Sasha isn't a language geek. I enjoy bumming around any country where they speak a Latin-based language. I love cheesy, head-banging rock concerts, ice cream and palm trees.

I'm a Cancerian. I live in Toronto.

My reading tastes are varied, but these days they lean towards nonfiction, a mix of history, current events, politics, economics and science. When it comes to fiction, I prefer books that make me laugh; Jasper Fforde and Christopher Moore are two favourites.

I own the two cutest dogs in the world. They are both Maltese, and neither one has any teeth (dental problems are common with this breed, I hear). I got Bella in October 2011. She is 12 years old, very neurotic, weighs 6 lbs, and is very sweet. I got her new boyfriend Chico from an animal shelter in January 2012. He weighs 5 lbs, has a heart condition, and believes that my sole purpose on Earth is to rub his belly!

Jill Edmondson does it again with her Sasha Jackson Mystery series. After the gut wrenching laughs "Deadlight District" induced, Sasha is on multiple cases this time.

The author delivers the same fast paced, witty writing that captured me during "Blood and Groom" and "Deadlight District." The Sasha Jackson character is perfectly written and the way Jill takes you through the many sides of Toronto's streets, and eats leaves you wanting more!!

I highly recommend this to any murder mystery fans!!

I believe The Lies Have It is the third in Jill Edmondson's Sasha Jackson Mystery series. I've read and reviewed the first two, Dead Light District and Blood and Groom. I like Sasha. She's tenacious. She gets a case or two or three and she keeps working until she solves them. She doesn't zip around town in a red sports car having meetings with the rich and famous. She hoofs it or takes public transportation. She doesn't slip into an evening dress and glide into a celebrity ball unnoticed. She doesn't pretend to be something-- oh, wait a minute. She does dress appropriate to the occasion, like in The Lies Have It, which starts with Sasha working the bar at a fetish party at The Stealth Lounge.

And from there, we follow her into places and lives both troubled and fascinating. Edmondson makes Toronto come alive on the page. She makes me want to go there. She brings even minor characters to life. Here's an example. This is from page 22. Sasha and a friend have been discussing one of the participants at the fetish party:
I folded my arms across my chest, and pressed my knees closer together than words in a dictionary. Right now, I kind of wished I were wearing a medieval chastity belt.

From that, you have no idea what or who has caused this reaction, but you know this may be a coming out party, but there are no debutantes attending. Some parts of The Lies Have It would probably be rated R, although not overly graphic. I figure that will entice as many buyers as it will scare away.

Sasha tends to take the cases other investigators won't. And because she's willing to tromp around in grunge clothes, talk to street people, and go where others won't, she solves problems, she finds people, and she steps into situations that sometimes turn out very bad.

Author Jill Edmondson does it again in this third installment in her Sasha Jackson PI series. (See also Blood And Groom and Dead Light District.)

Sometime drummer girl and bartender, private investigator Sasha Jackson is no stranger to the mean streets of Toronto. Bad guys of every stripe beware! Edmondson brings her trademark humor, sass and sex appeal to this hot new page-turner.

If you like Evanovich, you'll love Sasha Jackson. It's as simple as that. Edmondson keeps it moving with her unique brand of crime-fighting.

A must-read for mystery fans!

Sasha Jackson is an awesome girl. She plays drums to blow off steam, lives at home with her dad and doesn't own a car. That's as good an intro as I can think of for a main character - she's a regular person! No martinis or fancy cars for this private eye and further, she rides the bus or hails a taxi to reach her destinations in Toronto.
The characters are well rounded and believable (if you've read any of my reviews, this is important to me). The storyline is tight and well written and if you're paying attention as you read, you'll catch a couple of quick clues along the way.
This is the first Sasha book I've read and won't be the last - a great story from a wonderful storyteller!

In this continuing mystery series, Sasha Jackson's friend, Jessica, asks her to help attend bar at the Stealth Lounge, a private party room at the Pilot Tavern. Some of the staff refuse to work as Bound For Glory, a sadomasochist fetish club has booked the Lounge for the evening. Ian Dooley, head of the social club arrives to get things set up. It's going to be a very busy night. Sasha is not too enthusiastic about serving at this function, it made her feel grimy. Costumes and leather assaulted her senses; she really wasn't looking forward to the performances of the evening. She'd much rather be with her new man in her life, Derek Armstrong, but he's out of town working on a trial. As Lindsay and Sasha close up the bar for the night, Lindsay hands Sasha her cellphone. Later that night, Sasha finds out it's not her cellphone, but Ian's. The next day, Sasha takes on a case for Mr and Mrs Edquist. There daughter, Macy, 16 yrs. old, is missing, believed to be somewhere in Toronto. Meanwhile, Lindsay has left for England for a family reunion and Sasha agrees to apartment-sit and tend to her cat. That evening, while listening to the news, a local murder report catches her attention. Thirty-eight year old Ian Dooley is found dead, face down in the water at The Port area with two bullet holes in his back. He was wearing only a black leather kilt and army boots. Now there's no way to return his cellphone. As usual, this novel has compelling characters, an engaging story-line, and twists and turns. It moves forward quickly. There are many typos which need to be fixed, and I found the described fetish practices somewhat offensive. But this story will not keep me from reading more of Sasha Jackson's heroic efforts to solve crimes. Jill Edmondson is a great story teller.
