Publisher's Summary

Handsome white-knight police officer Jack Stratton is back in this action-packed, thrilling adventure. When his sexy old flame disappears, no one thinks it's suspicious except Jack and one unbalanced witness. Jack feels in his gut that something is wrong. He knows that Marisa has a past, and if it ever caught up with her - it would be deadly. Determined to buck the critics and listen to his instincts, he and his feisty sidekick Alice (aka Replacement) plunge ahead and start tracking down leads, hoping to find Marisa in time.

The trail leads them into all sorts of trouble - landing them smack in the middle of an all-out mob war between the Italian Mafia and the Japanese Yakuza. When evidence surfaces that Marisa was kidnapped, Jack must navigate through the warring parties, assassins, and cold-blooded hit men to outwit the cunning kidnappers before it is too late. As the body count rises, the stakes in this game are life and death, with no rules except one - Jacks Are Wild.

If you love a strong hero, smart women sleuths, and more twists and turns than a piece of licorice - you have found your book!

Great story with gret narration!

Jacks Are Wild is the third novel in the Detective Jack Stratton Mystery Thriller series. I read the entire 6 novel series before any novels were available in audio format. I love this offbeat series about a young police detective raised in a whorehouse where his mother worked as he goes about his job with a heart of gold. This story is about the kidnapping of the woman Jack is dating. My favorite character continues to be Alice (also known as Replacement) who is the enthusiastic young woman Jack rescued and who now shares his apartment in a platonic relationship. Andrew Tell narrates perfectly. Novels 4 and 5 in the series are not yet available in audio, but I hope they will be soon.

Don't waste your money

Would you try another book from Christopher Greyson and/or Andrew Tell?

no

What could Christopher Greyson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Better dialogue needed, plot is lousy, a terrible effort.

Did Andrew Tell do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Fair

What character would you cut from Jacks Are Wild?

They all appear to be equivalent to something a freshman in high school migh come up with --- not at all convincing and not well developed

Any additional comments?

It's terrible!

Great Action and New Characters

This audiobook is terrific. Lots of suspense and action. New and old characters blend well and didn't figure out this ending. Now I can't wait for more from this author. Narrator did a great job, too.

Each book gets better!

I will continue with this series. There’s only one problem, I finish these books too fast.

pretty damn good book

easy flowing, story line makes sense, good suspense , was lacking on who was reading it though

    3 out of 5 stars

If only there was no Alice

I would love this book if not for the annoying character, Alice. I'm invested in Jack but the borderline sister\brother connection combined with her annoying presence means I have to abandon this series after 3 books. It's too bad because I liked a few of the other characters but I hate her so much, I can't get past it. Let me know if you kill her off and I'll be back.

Exciting

Greyson's characters are believable, and the plot pulls you in and the reader feels they are right in the midst of danger.
