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?
Five Boundless Stars
I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this book. The first chapter was a little off because of the language and slang it used, but it was a written very well and It was a very enjoyable read. Jackson is hired by his aunt to find her daughter. He was in Vietnam and so his aunt knows he has killed and she needs him to do a very bad deed. He agrees and finds out not all is what it seems to be. Along the road he suffers from his heroin addiction, gets rehab, and becomes a PI. After becoming a PI he is once again hired by his Aunt to once again track her daughter down, this time she is in trouble. He goes to her and soon they find themselves on the run from the feds. Deviant Acts had many twists and turns and was full of action. As the book continued it just got better. It was very well written and was very colorful and interesting view into the mind of a vet who has seen the horrors of war. It was excellent, but I was confused on the ending. I felt like I either missed something or is this supposed to have a next book to continue with the story?
