While you could classify it as a mystery thriller, it doesn't conform to some norms in this genre. As in any mystery novel, you expect your sleuths to engage their wits in uncovering the perpetrator of a heinous crime or murder. That is a given. However, in 'Girl Jacked,' this heinous crime/murder is not confirmed till you've read about a third of the book. This in no way takes away from the beauty of this story as we get to root for the main protagonists: Jack Stratton and Alice a.k.a Replacement. Officer Jack Stratton has to find the killer of his foster sister, Michelle and clear her good name which is tarnished by the incidents surrounding her death.
Greyson writes in a way that is vivid and puts the reader smack bang in the middle of the action taking place on the page. The dialogue in the book is witty and fast paced. There was a lot of internal monologue in the book that served to add value to the action taking place. I haven’t seen this much use of internal monologue in a while and some people might find it distracting but I got used to it after a few pages.
I found the chemistry between Jack and Replacement was akin to a big brother and his little sister although there were moments when the sexual tension between them was a bit uncomfortable. Replacement is a worthy side-kick and I believe inherits some of the author’s background in the Computer Science world. Don’t expect to delight in guessing ‘whodunit’ as you read this book but rather enjoy the evolving relationship between Jack and Replacement as they discover a world filled with inflated egos, sadistic ambitions and barbaric violence.
I’ll be reading the other books in this series and have a feeling it’s only going to get better and better.
He is working as a cop when Alice finds him to ask for help. Their foster sister Michelle has gone missing.
Little by little the plot unravels and horror is uncovered.
This is a good, compelling novel.
Chandler and Michelle. He and Chandler go on to be soldiers in Iraq where Chandler
is killed. Jack can't get over this enough to visit the foster home and Michelle.
Now another foster "sister" (about 19) turns up to ask Jack to find Michelle, who has gone missing.
The girl was nicknamed Replacement (stupid name!) which Jack used, at her request, throughout the
book. Replacement really annoyed me as a lot of the time she acted like a petulant 12 year old - shouting,
sulking, throwing tantrums, putting her foot in it, etc. Then there were the countless showers at Jack's apartment
with either him or her being surprised naked or in a towel.
I found it a bit slow in places while he tried to trace Michelle's last movements. It did speed up towards the
end when Jack and the "baddies" encounter each other, but I was pleased this was a free book and I will not
be reading any more in the series. I see many others loved it though, so maybe it is me!
