When a body is found in a local storage unit, Jackson hopes a simple open-and-shut homicide case will help him get back on track. But when the victim is identified as ex-con Craig Cooper—a former meth addict who did time for bank robbery, the spoils of which were never recovered—it becomes quickly apparent that the case will be challenging.
In the latest book in the Detective Jackson series, we catch up with Wade Jackson as he returns to work after a leave of absence after accidentally shooting his ex-wife. His daughter, Katie, blames her father for her mother’s death and is rebellious and angry, dabbling in alcohol and drugs. Jackson is finding it very hard to cope with the turn his life has taken.
I’ve followed this series from the start and have enjoyed it very much. The characters are believable with real problems and issues. The story lines are never as simple as they first appear and usually have two plots woven together as well as following personal lives. In this instance Jackson investigates a suspicious death at a storage facility which leads on to a bombing at a local factory by a potential terrorist.
Patrick Lawlor has narrated most of the series (apart from the first two) and I like the regularity of listening to the same narrator. He does a great job, especially with Jackson, and differentiates well between the characters.
