He is an american writer and was this blogs first follower on Twitter. So, after reading his profile and finding he was a writer I thought I’d thank him for the follow through a review of his first novel, Killer Swell. If the book had been bad, it wouldn’t have been a good thank-you, I know but he was able to publish another two in the series so something must have gone right!


We start with meeting Noah Braddock, a PI from San Diego. He is meeting up with his first ever girlfriend’s mum whom he believed split the two of them up. 11 years later, it is she who needs his help to find her missing daughter (Kate) and believes that his history with her daughter will convince him to take the job. Braddock still remembers his first sweetheart and it is with his memory of her that we find out about the missing girl. She was rich, popular, daddy’s girl and number one sister and student. Braddock starts his search with her husband, a sleazeball of a man who from Noah’s memories of Kate, it is surprising she would date, let alone marry a man like him. Braddock finds Kate, but not really how he would have wished and her father then employs him to look further into the case, not trusting that the police will keep them informed, or that they will look for the culprit.

During the investigation, we meet Carter and Liz, a best friend and another ex girlfriend. Both went to the same high school as Noah and Kate and both are trying to find the solution to the mystery. Drugs, gangs, FBI, violence, sex, guns and guilt all play a part of this PI book and brings you round to conclusion which you part expect and part are surprised at.


Now, I am not going to lie, I wasn’t expecting that much from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Love Loved it! 3 Oct. 2012

I am currently on book four of this series and love love loving every page of it. Noah Braddock is a fasinating character you can't help but fall for. I burned through the first three books in record time as I just couldn't put them down. Easy flow to the writing style , modern and relevant. I am going to be so sad when I finish the series. Jeff Shelby has a fan for life in me. Killer Swell is the beginning of a wonderful wild ride with Noah and friends you will thoroughly enjoy.

I find Jeff Shelby to be a very good writer. He has the ability in his writing to create the characters so you can see them and have feelings about them. You get involved in the main characters lives. This was a good mystery with some surprising turns. As soon as I finished it I downloaded his next Noah Braddock book Wicked Break. I would recommend this book/writer for anyone that enjoys murder mystery type books.

I felt like I knew each character personally. The story pulled me in as if I was in the storyline. The turns in the story kept me interested and could not Waite to see what transpired next. This is another great read.

KILLER SWELL by Jeff Shelby
September 2, 2005

Amazon rating 4/5

"Jeff Shelby's Killer Swell is the first in a new series featuring detective Noah Braddock. Noah lives in San Diego and in this episode, he works with his friend Carter to find Jeff's missing ex-girlfriend, Kate Crier.

Noah hasn't seen Kate since high school, having graduated over ten years ago. She broke off their relationship before heading to the East Coast for college, while Noah stayed behind. As the book opens, he is approached by Kate's mother Marilyn to find her missing daughter. What Noah doesn't expect to find soon after their meeting is Kate's corpse stuffed into the trunk of a car..." Complete review at Bookloons. M Lofton

I loved this story and am quite excited to have discovered this author early on in his career. A fast read, I recommend this book to those who enjoy thrillers and mysteries.
