JACK AND THE GIANT KILLER - The Detective Jack Stratton Series Book # 5
Reviewed in the United States on August 13, 2017
As I’ve previously said, I don’t go into the plot in my reviews. Other reviewers
do that and so does the description of the book.
I stumbled on this series when the first book in the series, AND THEN SHE
WAS GONE was on an Amazon Promotion and I was placing a book order.
It looked interesting so I added it for something different— from an as yet
unknown author to me.
I enjoyed it so much, when I finished reading it, even though I still had a box of
books to read, I ordered the other 5 books in the series: GIRL JACKED,
JACK KNIFED, JACKS ARE WILD, JACK AND THE GIANT KILLER and DATA JACK.
During the past week or so I’ve re-read AND THEN SHE WAS GONE, following thru
reading each book in order.(It’s not necessary to read in order. Each book is a stand
alone story.) I’ve just finished # 6, DATA JACK. It should be said I have a lot of down
time, which means a lot of time to read.
I’ve found this series to be good enough to add to my list of “favs”—mystery authors
I follow and usually pre-order all their next books, not yet published. He’s joining the
likes of James Patterson, Michael Connelly, Patricia Cornwell, Jeffery Deaver,
Janet Evanovich, Iris Johansen, Ian Rankin and Nora Roberts writing as JD Robb
to name a few. If you enjoy reading their mystery books, you’ll probably enjoy
Christopher Greyson as well.
It should also be said that the editing in good. I think altogether in the six books
I’ve only found 3-4 errors and they weren’t so egregious as to detract you from
The characters are well developed and real. I think that’s one of the things I really
like about Greyson. These characters are like “real” people. I can visualize them and
their interactions with one another as if they were people I know. All the dialog isn’t in
full sentences—but then I don’t talk that way either, do you? The stories are diverse
and I’ve found them to be page-turners.
The last time I checked, his newest addition to the series was only available for
pre-order for kindle. I prefer literally, “curling up with a good book”. Today, I see
JACK OF HEARTS is being released tomorrow (8.14.17) for all editions—so I’ve
I highly recommend this entire series to all who enjoy a good, well written mystery.
