"Crimes of Memory," by L.J. Sellers

Crimes of Memory (A Detective Jackson Mystery), by L.J. Sellers

"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."

 -- Amazon reviewer

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.
