I have read all the LJ Sellers (Det. Jackson) Series and wasnt let down by any of the stories. You need to read the series to keep in the flow I have read some comments complaining that nobody has indicated in which order to read them to get the best from the books. I did a little research and was able to email the author who confirmed this order.
Sex Club, Secrets to Die For, Thrilled to Death, Passions of the Dead, Dying for Justice, Liars Cheats & Thieves, and finally Rules of Crime.

This author seems to be well reviewed, but it's only the second book I've ever read that I gave up on before the end, and only the second I've reviewed unfavourably.
I found it confusingly constructed, the dialogue was stilted and unrealistic, and the characters came across rather like ventriloquists' dummies. Some of the action was almost as though written for those with no imagination..
It should be possible for the reader to form a mental picture of the main characters, but I found this impossible.
I see it's had a number of favourable reviews, but I simply can't understand why.

I have read all of the Detective Jackson series.I must admit this is not the best in this series but it becomes almost forgiveable as you recognise and relate to many of the detectives and their lives.The story line is weaker than others in her series and I wouldn't be happy if this novel was my introduction to L J sellers.As I stated..not her best....but she makes comfortable reading and every now and then that's good! Hopefully her next one will be stronger.

I've loved all the Detective Jackson books and eagily awaited this one. A very good, easy read that is a pleasure to read. Sherlock Holmes it isn't but if you want a story to take you in a journey without the need of a dictionary or pausing to catch breath between paragraphs of descriptive stuffing then you will enjoy this. I love the characters and having read all the previous books you feel you know and understand them. Highly recommended book if you are after something that's not too heavy but still a cracking read.

Routine police procedural with a seemingly interesting storyline. However, acronyms and half words are encountered in abundance throughout the novel. I can barely put up with the odd acronym and then only considering it is absolutely necessary. This was one of the worst cases I have ever come across. I believe that acronyms cheapen a book's value and undo all the author's hard work. Authors are supposed to entrance readers with their use of words and not overwhelm them with a barrage of acronyms, some of which they may not even understand. Here I encountered the annoying usual acronyms like PERP, VIC, ASAP, ME, SWAT, but also many others I did not understand like PTSD, UV, KLSR, GPS, EDU, TOD, DUII. I thought it was absolutely ridiculous, it really spoiled the book for me.

If the author intented to confuse readers instead of drawing them into the plot by nimble character positioning then she certainly succeeded with me. Simply awful writing style.

Once again Jackson comes through a gruelling double murder and a sleepless long weekend. A break up with his girlfriend. A falling out with is teenage daughter, and a serer medical condition which threatens his none stop work life, brilliant read highly recommended. Now for the next book in the series.

This was a decent enough crime story, featuring a middle-aged detective in not the best of health - which meant he was an unusual type of central character, but ultimately a likeable one. I found the story a little bit light at times, bordering on the syrupy and sentimental, and for me, the denouement didn't really satisfy after the build up. The ending generally was a bit abrupt, I thought, and I would have appreciated more of a climax to the tale, which on the whole had been very readable.

There was also an over-reliance on coffee as a prop - but the author is not alone in this, it is a recurring theme in a great number of novels, especially by American authors, it seems to me. Maybe it's just me, but do we really need to keep being told that the characters are drinking coffee or what they think about the taste?

Three stars from me, but I am certainly curious enough to check out at least one of Detective Jackson's other adventures, - I just hope it will be a bit stronger next time (like the ubiquitous coffee).
