Detective Wade Jackson receives distressing news from his daughter which forces him to interrupt his vacation. For no apparent reason, Jackson's ex-wife has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom. Agent Carla River, Eugene's new FBI liaison, is in charge of the kidnap/ransom investigation.

This Wade Jackson book has a different blend of law enforcement than usual. A Violent Crimes Unit and the FBI are added to the mix.

For a long while now, each Detective Wade Jackson book has been better than the previous one. That can't be truthfully said about this book or the one that follows (CRIMES OF MEMORY) but I am willing to cut the author a bit of slack. I like to see her exploring aspects of Jackson's character that I may not have anticipated.

I would caution that this is not the place for readers new to the series to start, they would appreciate the series more by starting with the earlier books, but long-time fans should relax and take the journey with Jackson. He doesn't know where he'll end up and neither does the reader. That will be for the author to decide in a later book (or books).

Detective Jackson series: THE SEX CLUB, SECRETS TO DIE FOR, THRILLED TO DEATH, PASSIONS OF THE DEAD, DYING FOR JUSTICE, LIARS, CHEATERS & THIEVES and RULES OF CRIME.
