Writing about when "Honesty Isn't Everything"

Cabin Fever [1-935460-90-0]

Financial crimes investigator Seamus McCree returns in this thrilling sequel to Bad Policy. With his house in Cincinnati in ruins, Seamus retreats to the family cabin for some well-earned rest and relaxation. But his plans for a quiet, contemplative winter in the wilds of Michigan's Upper Peninsula are shattered when he discovers a naked woman on his porch during a blizzard. The mystery woman is suffering from hypothermia, frostbite, high fever, amnesia—and rope burns on her wrists and ankles.

Snowbound at the cabin, without transportation or phone coverage, Seamus struggles to keep the woman alive and find a way to get an SOS message out. What he doesn't know is that a domestic paramilitary organization is hunting for an escaped female prisoner—and closing in on his isolated refuge.

With a reluctant sleuth, his super-geek son, evasive characters, and one plot twist after another, Jackson leads us on a high-suspense adventure in the frozen Michigan woods. The second Seamus McCree mystery will give you anything but cabin fever — you won't want to leave your chair until you finish it.

~ Edith Maxwell, A Tine to Live; A Tine to Die & Speaking of Murder (as Tace Baker)

Jackson is a master at taking a character who just wants to be left alone and propelling him – and the reader – through a thrilling tangle of banking and insurance scams, underground societies and murder.

~ Kaye George, Eine, Kleine, Murder & The Imogene Duckworthy Mysteries

Complicated, and unpredictable, James M. Jackson's CABIN FEVER is a very engaging mystery read.

~ I Love A Mystery Review

Jackson makes the frozen north woods come alive in this atmospheric thriller. The Seamus McCree series is one to watch!
