Overview

A 2013 Shamus Award finalist, and Writer's Digest self-published book awards Honorable mention.Professional blackmailer John Sharp, aka One Eyed Jack, is a man who knows how to keep a secret - for a price. But when a routine case of infidelity takes an unexpected detour, he soon finds himself caught in a tangled web of double-blackmail, commodities manipulation, and trying to rescue the woman that had once been his target.

Judge, 22nd Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards said, "In One-Eyed Jack, author Christopher J. Lynch has created a multifaceted main character who will instantly grip readers from the moment he steps onto the stage. What I found interesting was how I both liked and disliked this character at the same time; this is something I've rarely experienced in my many years of reading fiction. This is definitely a book you won't be able to put down."

No one wants to be a blackmailer, but someone has to do it, and One-Eyed Jack was the master. This book is entertaining right from the first sentence. You will be drawn in by the humor, the creative writing approach, and of course the subject matter. Jack always would be the blackmailing master, but then he came across a situation that needed his blackmailing skills as well as intense detective work which he was also used to and good at. This case was one he had to help with and knew he could. He would get Bill Batty and his crew no matter what. But....what if someone else decided to get in on the deal? That could get quite dangerous. You will thoroughly enjoy "Jack".....a very likable character despite his dirty deeds. Underneath, though, he was one of the good guys. You will follow Jack through his days of investigation, his personal sacrifices, his hideouts, his creative plotting, and he will amaze you with what technology is out there to spy on others...makes me want to keep my computer turned off and not let my cell phone out of my sight. This book is a quick, funny, enjoyable, tense-at-time read with a great plot. A lot of research had to go into it unless the author is a tech wizard and just intrinsically knows all about these things. Don't miss this book....it was a delightful, entertaining, creative read with a great main character....thanks, Jack. Mr. Lynch is working on a sequel. This e-book was given to me free of charge without compensation by the author in exchange for an honest review.

From the first introduction of John Sharp aka One Eyed Jack, I knew my anxiety levels would go up. If you want to know why they call him One Eyed Jack…..READ THE BOOK!! Now back to my review… Can you imagine someone knowing some of your deepest dark secrets? Author Christopher J. Lynch does an excellent job of developing a story that will keep you on the edge of your seats. This Author gives his readers a strong plot, developed characters, and an all around entertaining read. I’m still not sure if I like John Sharp, but then again… I do like him. That’s the best part of reading a story like this - you are invested in the characters. This book was very fast paced, suspenseful, and add a little blackmail to the list you have a winner. Word to the Wise: Don’t cross One Eyed Jack!!! I look forward to see what new drama John Sharp aka One Eyed Jack will find himself in. Orsayor
