Someone mentioned that they didn't think that this book was as good as her others. I thought it was a really good story but I think there was less character development which made it seem a little quicker to read. Since we already know the characters I am not sure how she could have fleshed the characters out (even more). I guess for me now that I know the characters I don't mind just a really good police case. There is still the story of what is going on with the characters woven in so that you want to continue to read the series to find out what happens to them.
For those of you who don't care for swearing or sex there is really none of that in this book. It is pretty much just a really good murder mystery.
As always I looks forward to more books in this series.
I enjoy L. J. Sellers detective mysteries which remind me of John D. McDonald's style. Characters that are interesting with relatable emotional struggles keep me looking for the next book. This story has Detective Jackson trying to balance the time management of his job catching the criminals with his love life. I especially like the author keeping the stories and characters consistent in each book.
I plan to order the next one in a few minutes. If you like good mysteries with people you can relate to and people you will learn to like this is a series for you.
Also, I would have preferred that an innocent did not have to die in the end - wasn't life already pretty rough on that character? But, in life, such things do happen - so such an event is probably more likely to have happened and so was likely written to make the story seem more real - so again it is probably just me having trouble facing what could have been a reality.
Overall, it was a very good read - so thank you!

I found it confusingly constructed, the dialogue was stilted and unrealistic, and the characters came across rather like ventriloquists' dummies. Some of the action was almost as though written for those with no imagination..
It should be possible for the reader to form a mental picture of the main characters, but I found this impossible.
I see it's had a number of favourable reviews, but I simply can't understand why.
The author makes each character plausible with the help, maybe of allowing us to know they're not white as the driven snow. We get to know hidden flaws about the main characters a little at a time. After all, life isn't perfect and neither are the people who's job it is to protect us. That is what makes the characters come to life.
Very good plot as always.
For anyone who hasn't tried any of L.J. Sellers works, I highly recommend you try the author's first novel " The Sex Club" (I know its the first book involving Detective Jackson. Like most it was the title that intrigued me and made me curious to find out more. It can be a little hard changing to a new author you may not have heard of. Maybe agree to read the first 100 pages. I'm quite certain that you will continue on to the very last page.
Lastly, a piece of advice. Please read these novels in the order that they were written. The second book, especially, reveals important information on "The Sex Club" which only the readers who finished this novel would know. If you're in any doubt about the order of the books, have a look at the back of the book. Only a couple of pages long, the author 'speaks' to the readers and its there that you'll find the true order of the novels where Wade Jackson is the main character.
On to the next book...
