Product Description

In a throwback to the era of Mike Hammer and Shell Scott, Denver private investigator Bryson Wilde lives in an edgy 1950s world where the women are dangerous, cigarettes dangle from ruby-red lips and the nights are hotter than whiskey-soaked jazz. So when a curvy young blonde who thinks she may be the target of a killer walks in one morning and asks for his help, he’s not the kind to say no just because things might get a little dicey. What he foresees is a dangerous but straightforward hunt. What he doesn’t foresee is that he will be swept into a deadly vortex of unimaginable scope where nothing is as it seems and time is running out.

Praise for R.J. Jagger from the publishing industry’s most reputable and trustworthy book reviewers:

“As engaging as the debut [Witness Chase], this exciting blend of police procedural and legal thriller recalls the early works of Scott Turow and Lisa Scottoline.” Library Journal (Bad Client)

"The well-crafted storyline makes this a worthwhile read. Stuffed with gratuitous sex and over-the-top violence, this novel has a riveting plot." Kirkus Reviews (Lawyer Trap)

“Verdict: The pacing is relentless in this debut, a hard-boiled novel with a shocking ending. The supershort chapters will please those who enjoy a James Patterson–­style page-turner” Library Journal (Lawyer Trap)

A “clever and engrossing mystery tale involving gorgeous women, lustful men and scintillating suspense.” Foreword Magazine (Pretty Little Lawyer)

“Part of what makes this thriller thrilling is that you sense there to be connections among all the various subplots; the anticipation of their coming together keeps the pages turning.” Booklist (Attorney’s Run)

“This is one of the best thrillers I’ve read yet.” New Mystery Reader (Never Dead)

“Boatloads of fun.” Booklist (Never Dead)

“A throwback to the era of Mike Hammer and Shell Scott, [Nick] Teffinger is old school all the way—and that means good retro fun.” Booklist (Client Trap)

“A superb thriller and an exceptional read.” Midwest Book Review (Client Trap)

"A well told tale with a masterful blend of intrigue, murder, greed, lust, and that little touch of horror will keep you reading." New Mystery Reader (Ancient Prey)

“Brilliant! Ancient Prey held me glued to the edge of my seat and kept me in wonder of what was around the next corner of this spine-tingling, sensational work of fiction.” Midwest Book Review (Ancient Prey)

Denver homicide detective Nick Teffinger "leaves for Japan on an unsanctioned pursuit. As [Teffinger] draws closer to the killer, more victims are discovered, and the pattern of a twisted murderer revealed. Drawn into the intrigue is a cast of provocative characters who move in and out of Tokyo’s gritty underworld. Verdict This fast-paced book offers fans of commercial thrillers a twisty, action-packed thrill ride." Library Journal (Tokyo Hotel)

This book "is creative and captivating. It features bold characters, witty dialogue, exotic locations, and non-stop action. The pacing is spot-on, a solid combination of intrigue, suspense, and eroticism. A first-rate thriller, this book is damnably hard to put down. It’s a tremendous read.” Foreword Reviews (Tokyo Hotel)

“Another masterpiece of action and suspense. [Jagger] has outdone himelf." New Mystery Reader (Dead in Hong Kong)

“I love the way this man writes! I adore his style. There is something about it that makes me feel as if I’m someplace I’m not supposed to be, seeing things I’m not supposed to see and that is so delicious.” Rebecca Forester, USA Today Bestselling Author (Fatal Prey)

“A terrifying, gripping cross between James Patterson and John Grisham. Jagger has created a truly killer thriller.” J.A. Konrath (Witness Chase)

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yeah June 8 2011

Although Wickert Tripp is a fascinating investigator, to some extent he gets upstaged in this book by a young reporter who risks everything while running down a story involving a recent Denver murder where a young woman was dangled from a rooftop and dropped; she travels to San Francisco to see if a potentially similar murder there may be connected, and ends up pursuing leads in conjunction with an edgy Chinese massage parlor woman named Ki-Moon who knows the city's dark side all too well. Jagger doesn't seem to be able to miss and this book is no exception. As always the pace is frantic, the seemingly-divergent storylines all magically intertwine at the end, and the characters are people you actually like to spend time with.

5.0 out of 5 stars The author's best series? May 18 2011
By ThrillerReader - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Although R.J. Jagger's series involving homicide detective Nick Teffinger is a body of work firmly entrenched as a must-read in today's thriller landscape, it's possible that the author's second series featuring Wickert Tripp is even better. The fact that it's set in the 1950s before there were faxes and cell phones and the internet seems to amp up the human element of the books. Tripp is every bit as riveting as Teffinger, although he often gets upstaged by his trusty girl friday, Alabama. In this particular book, Tripp finds himself entangled in the sexy world of a young attorney who did a bad deed down in Mexico and is now about to pay the price. Captivating to the end in classic Jagger style, this is a worthy successor to the other two noirs in the series, The Scroll Lawyers and The Shadow File. It's a great read.

Jagger's done it again! This Bryson Wilde thriller is a tightly written page-turner that stands among the best of Jagger's work. From beginning to end, the story moves at a rapid pace. Wilde is a 50's era PI that works out of a small office with his sexy assistant Alabama. Wilde also plays drums at a steamy jazz club. Of course, Wilde chases after a serial killer and there is nonstop action. Like all of Jagger's books, this one follows several interconnected stories including Wilde's detective work for the mysterious woman named Secret, a young reporter who is investigating the strange murders of women in red dresses, and a bad dude who tangled with bikers and is paid to kidnap young women. The formula is similar to that in Jagger's other work, but it works and works well.

Jagger must have had a ton of fun writing this series. Like the other two books, it takes place in 1950's Denver, which Jagger does a great job of descrbing. The books fall into a common pattern of early meeting with a beautiful, but thrifty with the truth client who's in a jam, while two other plotlines develop in parallel, before they all come together as one.

The dialogue is snappy, the pacing is rapid fire, and the mileau of the early 1950's is compelling.

These are books you race through just to keep up. There are elements of the early Spillane here, and early was his best.

You'll love this book.

I give a hearty "right on!" To the other reviews of this great noir thriller, with only one question: Who is Wickett Tripp? Another name for Bryson Wilde? Anyway, it's all here, and it all works, and, yes, the lady reporter is really something, in more ways than one. You'll see. I became a noir fan the first time I saw "The Maltese Falcon." Jagger has moved things from the prewar era to 1952, in much the same way Max Allan Collins eventually did with Nathan Heller. Jagger, though, spends a lot more time on character development and the narration of elaborate subplots. Historical events, when cited, serve only as period backdrops to Jagger's focus on intricate plotting. He's a master at the cliffhanger, too. He'll keep you reading, that's for sure.
