    I m recommending this one to my friends James M Jackson has written a taut, exciting, classic mystery thriller From the name of his hero, Seamus pronounced Shamus McCree to the sinuous plot to the surprising conclusion of Bad Policy, Jackson shows McCree to be a worthy successor to Phillip Marlowe McCree, financial crimes sleuth, walks the mean streets of Cincinnati And Chillicothe And Boston Who knew Chillicothe had mean streets But unlike Marlow, who walks the streets of Los Angeles alone, McCree comes complete with a son who s starting an IT business, a girl friend who s a bodyguard in the security firm for which McCree does his financial investigations, an uncle who s a retired Boston cop, and a mother who hasn t spoken in twenty years.McCree s trials begin when a man is found tortured and murdered in his basement He is, of course, the prime suspect In an attempt to free himself from suspicion, McCree discovers some frauds, shoots an intruder, and has a hit put out on him His investigation leads to a decades old death in Boston Did I mention that the bad guys burn his house down If a writer should drag his hero through hell, Jackson does the job neatly The twists and turns of Jackson s plot lead McCree into peril, which he meets with courage, and into problems he meets with cunning Also starring are the Irish mafia and a crooked MBA.This one kept me up until way past my bedtime.

    I loved Bad Policy Financial investigator Seamus McCree is smart, rich, and in big trouble He s also a caring dad and son With ties to the Boston Irish Mafia, this story in Ohio kept my attention all the way through to the twist at the end I usually read cozies with female protagonists, but Jackson s male character is well drawn, caring, and likeable, and the story wasn t too violent or terrifying for me, although it certainly thrilled I look forward to the next in the series.

    I keep reading this series because the characters and pets are good The mysteries ar okay but I wish they were a little shorter Some of the financial info gets long.

    I am a huge fan of the Myron Bolitar series and never thought I could find another with the same appeal I LOVE Seamus He s the good guy against the world, who cares about others than himself So his life should be boring and mundane, right NO WAY I love the twists and turns The satisfying way Seamus does not just sit there and let bad things happen to him If you want a book that flows quickly, has plenty of twists and turns, that makes you care about every single character Well, I haven t quite finished my first Seamus McCree, and I couldn t wait to say how GREAT the book is I hope Mr Jackson can write fast and keep Seamus coming

    Jim Jackson has written a classic PI novel with several twists Seamus McCree don t you love that name is from Boston and has Mafia ties, and he has anger issues But he s a different sort of PI He isn t independent but works for a security company doing financial analyses he has a family son and mother he really care about he doesn t carry a gun, though he knows how to use one Oh yeah, he s got a nice backup of security in the bank and investments most fictional PIs live from check to check When he comes home from a trip to find a body in his basement a man tortured with the Mafia six pack and then killed the action takes off on a roaring start that doesn t quit Jackson leads the reader on twists and turns, making sure that none of us can finger the villain In fact, who s behind what seems to change all the time He comes perilously close to signing his own death warrant several times, but like PIs everywhere, he s devishly clever And Jackson leaves a nice segue at the end into a second book Hang on to your hat and go for a wild ride with this debut of Seamus And, no, it s not See mus.

    I wasn t sure I would like this book when I started reading it That changed the further I got into the story For one, Seamus McCree is a likeable character, making it easy to root for him to succeed.There are three things that set this book apart from others in the genre.1 Seamus has a normal relationship with his son and father.2 He s not a drunk, recovering alcoholic, drug addict, or angst ridden soul.3 It s set in a large town instead of a major city.I thought this was the first book in the series only to find out, after I d finished it, there was a book before this one and two after it Some sites list the earlier book as a prequel, others call it Book 1 so this book is either the first or second in the series Take your pick.Either way, this book was good enough to make me want to read of Seamus s adventures.

    I wasn t sure what to expect from the debut novel, Bad Policy a mystery with a financial investigator as private eye but I was pleasantly surprised Jackson starts his book with a bang a body in the basement and keeps the action rolling throughout The main character, Seamus McCree, felt very real to me and I especially enjoyed seeing his relationship with his adult son.The deeper Seamus digs into financial misdeeds, the he gets himself into trouble Add several quirky characters, a twisty plot with historical political Irish undertones, and menacing villains who aren t afraid to use violence to get what they want, and you ve got the essence of Bad Policy The book covers topics that few mystery writers address It s an entertaining read and it kept me guessing until the end.

    Read this book twice enjoyed it even the second time around Cant believe this is a debut novel Really well thought out good discussion for book club Potential Book Club Selection from a sort of local to Savannah author I enjoyed the tone, which read like a 1950 s Detective Story I enjoyed the characters and, while some things seemed a little stretched a money guy, albeit a former pro soccer player, who is able to take down bad guys , it was fun My only true gripe a line about Krispy Kreme donuts in Boston When in Rome in this case Boston , you eat Dunkin Donuts.
