Did you ever buy or receive a book and just mean to glance at it only to find that you were reading it front to back non stop? That is what happened to me with this book. I really just meant to read a page or two then pick it up in a week or two as I had no idea what it would be about--uh--it caught me from the get go. Jackson Hurst, a loser by most peoples definition of that term is really not doing well--his Mom has just about given up on him--when he is called upon by his aunt, who has no respect for him or anyone else for that matter because she deems him the only one who can help find and retrieve her kidnapped daughter--and then wreak revenge on the kidnappers. She sets him up as a private investigator and the craziness begins!
I don't want to say much more or I will spoil it for you--all I will say is the FBI gets involved and a BIG secret is revealed--I did love the ending and I think you will too!
About the Book; (from Amazon)
Jackson Hurst lives his nightmares with his eyes open. Only the heroin he’s been addicted to since Vietnam keeps the horror at bay. A poster child for losers, Jackson’s addiction has cost him his job, his girlfriend—and unless there’s a change soon—his life. That change comes in the form of the wicked Aunt Camille, a Vermont millionaire who desperately needs Jackson’s services to retrieve her twenty-year-old daughter, Cheryl, from kidnappers. Camille wants her back at any cost and she wants the kidnappers, who maimed her only daughter, murdered. Jackson could use the money—no, he desperately needs the money—but can he stay clean long enough to get her back? And more importantly, can he kill again despite the demons that haunt him from the war?
