Kurzbeschreibung

Fresh off the leave-of-absence he took following his ex-wife's tragic death, Detective Wade Jackson's life is in upheaval. He struggles to keep his grief-stricken, out-of-control daughter, Katie, from succumbing to the same alcoholism demon as her mother, while trying to reinvigorate a passion for his work. 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.

The same night Cooper is murdered, a firebomb goes off in a bottled water factory on the other side of town. The prime suspects are from an organization called Love the Earth—eco-terrorists believed to be modeling themselves after the infamous Earth Liberation Front. Fears that new group is plotting another attack bring agents from the ATF and FBI to town, among them Jamie Dallas, an undercover agent with a wild streak, and Carla River, an FBI agent with a complicated past. When Jackson discovers a shocking link between the murder case and the bombing, they will have to work together to solve both crimes before they blow up in their faces.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fast paced suspense 8. Dezember 2013
Von Scharla
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed the alternative twist of character roles here. While creating a crime novel which I was unable to second guess right up to the end, the author also used a refreshing mix of unusual characters each with their own mix of issues. I will check out some of her other novels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wade Jackson's #8 ties up loose ends From #7 and teases fans to look for #9! 15. Oktober 2013
Von John W Kurtze - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Number 8 in the Detective Wade Jackson Series. Crimes of Memory picks up on the issues left hanging from Rules of Crime #7. We were left with Detective Wade Jackson dealing with the accidental killing his ex-wife and his daughter's refusal to forgive him.

Jackson is trying to deal with his daughter Katie, who is drunk and out of control. Katie refuses to deal with her father, so Jackson is forced to have the officer arrest her. As the officer is taking Katie into custody, Jackson gets called on a new murder case. Jackson is just coming back from medical leave. Along with having to deal with his daughter's alcohol problems and arrest, Jackson is not sure he is ready to deal with a new murder case.

While he is investigating a death at a self storage facility, he finds certain links to a potential terrorist group. He shares clues with the detectives working on the bombing of local factory. Because the bombing might be linked to terrorists, the FBI enters into the investigation. Wade Jackson finds that the person of interest for the murder at the storage unit may have a connection to the bombing. While Jackson is pursuing his murder suspect, he still is dealing with his daughter's alcohol problems.

I enjoy how Sellers keeps weaving new twists into the story. Sellers gradually brings all of the main characters together in an effort find the murder suspect and the people responsible for the bombing.

FBI undercover Agent Jamie Dallas is introduced to the reader. Her undercover investigations provide important details to all of the ongoing investigations. It takes all of Wade Jackson's patience to deal with a hostage situation with a unique twist.

Even with all the investigations going on, I was pleased Sellers kept Wade's focus on his daughter's issues. Readers will enjoy the twists involving Jackson's daughter Katie, his retired detective friend, Wade's girlfriend, Kera, and Katie's court appointed counselor.

We find answers to Wade Jackson's family issues, successful investigations, and an ending that will surprise everyone. We will read more about undercover Agent Jamie Dallas as she is featured in Seller's new book "The Trigger" launching in January of 2014.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Detective with a personal life--and it works 20. Februar 2014
Von J. Murray - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
If "Crimes of Memory" (Thomas & Mercer 2013) is your first L.J. Sellers' Detective Jackson mystery, be patient. I've read all nine books in this series and it took me a bit to get used to the unique introspective style of this thoughtful detective. He is clever, intelligent, and caring, not necessarily in that order when he's fighting crime. In his world, his life is as important as the crime he's fighting. By that I mean he cares how his job--the long hours, the lawless people, even the mental anguish it puts him through--affects those he loves. In many series, authors deal with that by destroying any semblance of a personal life their heroes have (read Alex Berenson's latest John Wells thriller, "The Counterfeit Agent"--you'll see what I mean). In this series, Sellers actually tries to mesh job and personal in a workable formula.

In "Crimes of Memory", Detective Jackson struggles with several seemingly disparate crimes (a body stuffed in a storage container, a bomb explosion at a factory) in the aftermath of his ex-wife's death, his daughter's grief, and his personal struggle with 'is it all worth it'. Even as his own life seems headed for a breakdown, he can't stop himself from following the clues, making connections, and ultimately solving the crime. Since this is a series, there is no real ending to the story, just a sense that there's a light in the darkness that might not be an attack helicopter.

If this were my first Detective Jackson book, I might rate this a three or four star book, wishing Jackson was more like other lawmen heroes--hard-bitten, jaded, cynical, driven to protect the world. But there are a lot of great books that deliver that character. Here, I get change, an unusual character, a peak into how a family life can mesh successfully (if rockily) with saving the world. That's worth five stars and a recommendation to read the entire series.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Crimes of Memory 26. Dezember 2013
Von Terry South - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Crimes of Memory is the eighth novel and the latest in the Wade Jackson series by author LJ Sellers.

The story is told from several points of view, with each of the main characters experiencing personal issues of their own while the mystery simultaneously unfolds. The story begins as Jackson is trying to deal with his daughter Katie, who is drunk and out of control. Katie refuses to deal with her father, so Jackson is forced to have the officer arrest her. As the officer is taking Katie into custody, Jackson gets called on a new murder case. Jackson is just coming back from medical leave. Along with having to deal with his daughter's alcohol problems and arrest, Jackson is not sure he is ready to deal with a new murder case.

While investigating a death at a self storage facility, he finds that people are residing in the storage bins as their homes and also finds certain links to a potential terrorist group. He shares clues with the detectives working on the bombing of a local factory. Because the bombing might be linked to terrorists, the FBI enters into the investigation. Wade Jackson finds that the person of interest for the murder at the storage unit may have a connection to the bombing. While Jackson is pursuing his murder suspect, he still is dealing with his daughter's alcohol problems.

This is the first I have read from this author, the story is good, but not quite my particular taste. The story in my opinion was a little slow paced as well.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not the best 19. Dezember 2013
Von Looking for a good read - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a huge fan of both LJ Sellers and all her various characters, especially the Detective Jackson series. Honestly though, this wasn't my favorite by any means.............you could tell it was the spin off for another character. It just didn't have that Detective Jackson tenacity that the others had. There was too much going on with both stories and neither of them were written very solidly. I couldn't wait to get to the end. Granted, the writing was solid, but the plot lines and the story lines were obviously two book combined to make one. I will continue with the series assuming (SPOILER ALERT)...........Det Jackson returns. This was a big deal throughout the book, but it was never really addressed at the end. It addresses his relationship with his daughter, but while Kera was in this book, not very prominently, and like I said, we never addressed what Wade was going to be doing in the future. Hopefully he comes back.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Series! 16. April 2014
Von Madelon Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed this (CRIMES OF MEMORY), and the seven books in the Detective Jackson Mystery series that precede it.

I don't do spoilers, but I will say that this is the eighth police procedural in the series that takes place in Eugene, Oregon. Ms Sellers is a Eugene native, so I tend to think that she writes from a place of first hand knowledge of the attitudes and policies of her home town. I visited Eugene a while back and was told more than once that Eugene has some strange politics - hippies on one side of town and rednecks on the other. I found Eugene to be a totally charming place to visit.

The main character is a man with a story filled with family and flaws. He could be a real person. I would add that this is a series that needs to be read in order. Although each mystery could stand on its own, the back story of Jackson, his family and his co-workers continues pretty seamlessly from book to book.

I hope that this series continues. I will read them all.

The seven books preceding CRIMES OF MEMORY are:

The Sex Club
Secrets to Die For
Thrilled to Death
Passions of the Dead
Dying for Justice
Liars, Cheaters & Thieves
Rules of Crime
