I held my breath,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Passions of the Dead (The Detective Jackson Mystery/Thriller Series) (Kindle Edition)I don't usually use the phrase "grab you by the throat" about books, because it seems like such a cliche, but honestly... when I read that first chapter of Passions of the Dead, I felt a little dizzy. Then I realised I'd been holding my breath.
A family of four is brutally attacked in their home, the only survivor is the 18 year-old daughter. Jackson is determined to find out who would commit such a horrific crime, but there are only too many suspects.
The family's recent history begins to unfold, and it's one tragedy after another. It's gut-wrenching, and yet the story is easy to read. Jackson's determination fills the reader with a sense of hope, and he doesn't disappoint.
I loved it so much that I've already started reading Dying for Justice, the next in the series.
