By L.J. Sellers
Thomas & Mercer, $14.95, 293 pages
While vacationing with his girlfriend in Hawaii, Detective Wade Jackson received a phone call from his frantic teenage daughter. Her mom, Jackson’s ex-wife, was missing. He immediately thought that she
must have started drinking again. Rushing back to Eugene, Oregon he learned she had been abducted, and the kidnappers were demanding a large ransom from her wealthy fiancé. The intense investigation
explodes in many intriguing directions, with a large task force involving the FBI leading the search, a number of suspects and a dead reporter expand the mystery.
An immensely satisfying crime thriller, the plot takes off in several unexpected directions. The many unusual and quirky characters enhance the experience.
L.J. Sellers is a native of Eugene, and is an award-winning journalist, as well as the bestselling author of nine other novels. Her Detective Jackson series has earned fans around the world. As a voracious reader, I don’t know how I have missed reading any of her work, but she is now on my short list of favorite authors, and I will be looking for her other novels to devour.
