Publisher's Summary

Jack felt the familiar burn of shame in his chest.

Why do I keep doing this...thinking about her? It was so long ago, but I can't get what happened out of my head. I shouldn't let any of that junk define me, but I still do. I'm driving in circles, caught in some loop that I can't break out of. I want to know why she abandoned me...but some things, I guess, I'll never know....

Handsome police officer Jack Stratton is the "hometown hero cop with a heart of gold". Constant nightmares have forced him to seek answers about his rough childhood and the dark secrets hidden there. With Alice (aka Replacement) by his side, Jack travels to Hope Falls to solve a murder that occurred before he was born. Everyone in the small town remembers the unsolved murder of Steven Ritter, but after 27 years, no one thought that someone would look into it - but they don't know Jack.

A heart-rending mystery-thriller about lost love, betrayal, and murder, Jack Knifed will keep you on the edge of your seat.

    "Wonderful detective suspense mystery!"

    I love this very different 6 novel suspense mystery series. The Kindle versions are free to borrow with my Kindle Unlimited account. I read the first 5 novels in 2015 well before audio versions were available and then had to wait one year to read the 6th (And Then She Was Gone). Books 4 and 5 are not yet available in audio. Each book is stand alone.

    The Detective Jack Stratton mystery series books are unusual and unorthodox. I like them so much that I want all of them in my Audible library. Jack Stratton was raised in the whorehouse where his mother worked. Now in his mid-20's he is a hero police detective with a heart of gold and very strict moral code to which he holds himself. In this novel he is searching for the father he never met and for his mother's history.

    There is so much to like about the Jack Stratton series. The character development with the vivid characters is outstanding. Alice, who is called Replacement, is a wonderful young lady who has lived in poverty her entire life and who plays a key role in Jack Knifed. The novels are fast paced and they are fun. Of course, there are also twists and turns. As much as I enjoyed the Kindle version, the Audible version is even better thanks to the narration of Andrew Tell. I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ENTIRE SERIES!!

    "Very entertaining fast paced mystery..."

    This is the third book I've listened to in the Jack Stratton series. These are really good books with with an admirable protagonist. He's a young cop with a hot temper and a soft heart. He grew up in foster care and now lives platonically with a young woman who came to live in the same home after he left.
    Jack grew up thinking of himself as a throw away child who must not have been worthy of keeping. Him mother was an addict and he didn't know who his father was. In this book he goes to a psych hospital and sees his mother for the first time in about 20 years. She mentions his father's name and that someone killed him.
    Jack and his friend/roommate go to his mother's hometown to solve a 27 year old mystery.
    Great read, fast paced and interesting plot.
    The books in this series do not have to be read in order. Each can be read as a stand alone.
    Andrew Tell does a very good job narrating.
    I RECOMMEND this book for an easy listen. Nothing too complex but it certainly is fun.

    "Occasional reader"

    I love the adoption/foster family stories weaved in and out of this series along with the police stories. With each book, I can hardly wait to start the next. I have laughed aloud, as well as she'd some tears.

    "straight line story w/unhelpful audio performance"

    this was my sixth audiobook and by far the worst. it's a simple story line that lacks any real depth. the narration seems to hit all the wrong notes in intonation and inflection. not sure how this book was rated so high; you can do much better.

    "Best in the Series"

    Finally, after all the bland other audiobooks in this series this one is really, really good. The story is complex, the characters have matured and evolved to adults, and the narrator does the best he has done to date, too. I highly recommend this audiobook.
