What will Seamus do this time?
Financial crimes investigator Seamus McCree has wife problems, and Lizzie's not even his wife anymore. Her current husband disappeared on a business trip to Savannah. Was he kidnapped? Dispatched by his hedge fund partners? Or did he run off with another woman? Police assume he's AWOL, and Lizzie turns to Seamus for help.
What Readers Say ...
James M. Jackson has once again proven himself a skilled storyteller with this highly entertaining page turner that takes the reader into the heart and soul of Seamus McCree's often dysfunctional family. Doubtful Relations is a rollercoaster ride of missing persons, drug cartels, crime lords, shady stock market dealings, car crashes and shoot-em-ups that left me breathless—and not quite knowing who to trust—until the very end.
Set in Cincinnati, New Jersey, Savannah and the outerbanks, and Chicago, this top notch whodunit leaves you guessing to the bitter end.
Often readers are offered a choice between books that are character driven or plot driven. In James M. Jackson's book "Doubtful Relations," you get both. Jackson's characters are well developed, but at the same time the story moves along at a pace that will keep you turning the pages.
Unpredictable circumstances, unexpected relationships, and a complicated plot arching across several eastern seaboard cities are cleverly linked with the wonders of Internet technology.
