Product description

About the Author

Born in Victoria, BC, Canada, Jay Allan Storey has traveled the world, passing through many places in the news today, including Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and the Swat valley in Pakistan. He has worked at an amazing variety of jobs, from cab driver to land surveyor to accordion salesman to software developer. Jay is the author of two novels, THE ARX, and ELDORADO, a novella, CHOPPER MUSIC, and a number of short stories. A new novel is due late in 2015, and several other projects are in the works. His stories always skirt close to the edge of believability (but hopefully never cross over). He is attracted to characters who are able to break out of their stereotypes (as Jackson Reilly does in CHOPPER MUSIC) and transform themselves. Jay loves both reading and writing, and both listening to and playing music. He also enjoys cycling, traveling to exotic lands, and working with animals. He's crazy for any sport activity relating to the water, including swimming, surfing, wind-surfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Jay is married and lives in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

This review is of a free pre-publication copy of The Arx.
In Vancouver police detective Frank Langer, Jay Allan Storey has developed a lead character who will fight to seek out the truth, even though Frank's still on 'stress leave' following a mental breakdown a year ago. Yet another detective with personal problems? OK, but this doesn't detract from the story.
Against opposition from his former colleagues, Frank reluctantly agrees to investigate the disappearance of a baby from a high-rise apartment. With the help and support of Community Support Officer Rebecca, the baby's aunt, he uncovers a sinister plot involving kidnapping of young children, and also begins his own recovery
The relationship between the two main characters, Frank and Rebecca, is skilfully developed as the story progresses to a satisfactory end.
The story ticks all the boxes in its genre, the dialogue sounds authentic and the characters and settings are well-drawn and believable. An enjoyable read.

One of the best books I've read this year. I am always a little wary when asked for a pre-publication review, but I have no hesitation in recommending this great read. I've read both of Jay's previous books and they get better and better. The writing style is smooth and assured with just the right amount of tension to keep the reader turning the pages hungry for more. The characterisation is subtly judged - it is easy to overplay the drunk who hits rock bottom to the point when the reader looses all sympathy - and there are enough 'clues' to keep the crime enthusiasts like me on their toes in a fast moving plot with plenty of unexpected twists. Don't keep us waiting too long for the next book, Jay!

I really enjoyed this story. It started out as a detective novel, then went into conspiracy, which was a nice twist. The detective's struggles with his personal demons were very well written.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compassionate and creepy 16 Jan. 2017
By suziqn6 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I received a free copy of this book through a book bundle giveaway. I voluntarily decided to review. This is my honest review.
This is the first book I have read from this author. He did a great job portraying PTSD and educating the reader about this disorder. In fact, he has a strong writing style that is full of good descriptions, believable conversations, strong characterizations, and good sentence structure. The book read smoothly and I didn't have any trouble when past events were inserted into the present.
The only thing I didn't like was the science fiction part. It was creepy to me. Really creepy. Without giving spoilers, which I detest, I can't say much more about that aspect. It ruined the enjoyment I had up to that point, but I finished the book in order to have the full picture of the book before reviewing. This is a totally personal viewpoint. This creep factor for me would, probably, make most readers laugh and wonder what is wrong with her?! That's fine by me. We all have different comfort levels regarding a variety of things.
If you don't have a problem with science fiction, I highly recommend this book. If you have a low creep factor like me, then you can take a chance or not. Jay Allan Storey can write! That stands out for me enough to say it again. The writing was excellent. I don't regret reading The Arx. It was worth it to read a well constructed story.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't be disappointed! 13 Feb. 2016
By Ronald S. Craig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Initially, I was hesitant to press on as the theme seemed to be a familiar one with a burnt out drunken cop, but I was very pleased that I continued through the twisting and suspenseful story that followed. This book is well written and as an author myself, appreciated the detail and scene development by Jay Allan Storey.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Strange Hybrid 20 Dec. 2016
By Mary Lou - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoy mysteries , who-done-its and most police procedurals. This story confused me when it became a science fiction story halfway through. I also didn't like not know what caused the main character's periods of acute stress reactions. That ploy was almost a tease.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... JAS that I have read and both were very good and well written books 19 July 2016
By SSWILKIE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the second novel by JAS that I have read and both were very good and well written books. The ARX is an exciting read that will have you turning pages well after you are supposed to be in the bed. One thing I like about Jay's writing is that you really get to know the characters in his books. I enjoyed this book more than any I've read in quite a while.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Story 9 April 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thought this book had an interesting story line but it could use a little more editing. There was a newspaper article that stated a man killed in a car accident a month ago had now been identified but when Frank interviewed the man's on-again, off-again girlfriend she told him she last heard from her boyfriend a week ago. She also said she last saw him 2 or 3 weeks ago. So obviously he didn't die in a car accident a month ago. I also thought it was confusing how a new paragraph would start and it would be a new day, new setting, etc. from the one before. It was just very abrupt at times. I do think the author has talent though and his story was unique and interesting. I also liked that it was a nice quick read. It was over 400 pages but it went really fast. I would consider reading another book by him in the future.
