Wrongful Death by LJ Sellers

Wrongful Death (Detective Jackson Mystery, #10)Wrongful Death by L.J. Sellers
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This my second LJ Sellers book and got a little less than I expected on the excitement side, however as a regular cop murder mystery it was fairly good. Detective Wade Jackson is given the task of solving the murder of a cop, who in his spare time worked to help the homeless. During the first cold night in Eugene, Officer Dan Thomson is murdered immediately after handing out blankets he had collected to the residents of a homeless camp. The investigation is difficult enough due lack of witnesses, but with the complication of his partner being related to the victim nothing is easy. He is given a sex attack case to keep him out of the way to keep emotions in check. The investigation follows the normal steps you would imagine, obvious clues are red herrings and the press are involved. It takes a while but don't give up the story does take some unexpected turns and livens up towards the end of the investigation and identification of the murderer. A good story but my preference is the Agent Dallas series.
