Detective Jake: The Search for Truth (Book) - 3/5/2011 1:03:10 PM
Jake's troubles started at a young age when a tragic incident left a loved one dead. He witnessed the person who did it, but was too late to do anything to stop it. Though it was no fault of his own, Jake always felt a good portion of guilt and lived his life trying to overcompensate for something for which he had no control.
Once he becomes detective, the job that he was meant to do, and meets the woman of his dreams, his life starts to have meaning, until other circumstances bring all that he desires to a screeching halt. This book will keep you on your toes the whole time, with a persistent need to know what will happen next. While this is a suspenseful crime story, it goes deeper than that, and introduces some emotional scenes, as well.
I loved it so much; I plan on buying the next one in its series as soon as possible! This is a real page turner. I highly recommend it!
Detective Jake: Ripped (Book) - 3/5/2011 1:01:36 PM
Detective Jake was given a second chance at life; the life he so cherished with his wife Clarissa. Though hesitant to re-embrace his career as a detective, he made a well-thought out decision to continue saving the lives of others. In his pursuit to discover a suspect who appears to be a copycat serial killer, Jake learns that this was indeed the job he was meant to do.
"Ripped" will keep you on the edge of your seat, with a constant desire to know what happens next. As the author reveals possible suspects, the story leads you on a quest to figure out who is responsible for viciously taking the lives of the innocent.
It is a well-written, easy to follow story that takes you through the mind of a person on a killing-spree, along with the thought strategy of the detectives that are trying to find the killer. Though mostly about crime, "Ripped" also delves into the heart and soul of a marriage based on true love, admiration and respect.
I highly suggest this one, another great book by Sheila Rae Myers.
