--Caroline Taylor, author of Loose Ends and The Typist
Vegas is the perfect setting for this intriguing and entertaining thriller where every character is a master of illusion. The novel begins with Oliver's dogged and witty protagonist, Jessica James, on a quest to find her birth father, a magician that has performed a seemingly permanent disappearing act. She enlists the help of an old friend, whose Facebook profile proves a cover for a dangerous job that soon threatens everyone around her. Oliver knows how to keep ratcheting up the stakes until the reader feels like they have their own mortgage riding on the roulette wheel.
Great cast of characters. A smart and sexy high stakes trip to Las Vegas.
---Tracee de Hahn, author of Swiss Vendetta

Jackal by Kelly Oliver is a fantastic addition to the Jessica James Mysteries series. This book will hook you in from the beginning. You can tell from the beginning that Jessica is expecting one thing when she gets in touch with her old friend from high school via Facebook. Her friend claims to be successful, but as we all know...nothing is what it seems when it comes to social media and what people say. Jessica is literally broke and in desperate need of a helping hand. While her friend helps her out...it comes with a price, because apparently, her friend isn't exactly the best when it comes to handling money. But her friend also decides to involve herself in some shady business in an attempt to make some quick money. All Jessica does (with a few klutzy moments mixed in) is take on a maid job and finds herself mixed up in it as well. She knows danger when she sees it and trust me...this has danger written all over it. The variety of characters in this story are great. The storyline is smooth and engaging from start to finish. This is the second book that I have read by this author and I enjoyed this book the most. I felt that it was better put together and flowed smoother than the first.
There is nothing that I don't like about this book. The storyline flows beautifully. There are no sticky spots that caused me to pause or try to figure anything out. The characters are well developed and the storyline is one that hooks you until the end. I couldn't help it but I snickered more than once at Jessica's moments of klutziness. Leo is an interesting character, and for being a veteran of the force I'm a touch surprised at the errors he commits, but it adds to the story.
I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars. I'm looking forward to more from this author. Jessica James is an engaging character and she's got some pretty cool friends, too. If you're a fan of Jessica James and love her friends, then this is a book to pick up and dive into!
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
BUT.... the book description talked about trademark humour which I never saw so much as a glimpse of. The general atmosphere was depressing and rather seedy. So much do that I t really would have benefitted from some comic relief.
To be honest I gave up after 25%, so you might want to disregard my comments make up your own mind about the book.
