Editorial Reviews

Cindy Sendall
"In this contemporary novel, Jack P. Jones has created an attractive likable set of characters. You want very much for "Poppy" to keep Spice from a determined and ruthless enemy. His success will depend on a creative but risky strategy that takes him deep into the trackless swamp." — from Cindy Sandall, author of Texas Video Series for Texas History Students. Series include Texas Indians, Ancient Texas Indians, Texas Indian Ancestors, Texas Geography, and others.

    A tender,well-written mystery

    Elmer Goodhand is a lonely old man, he seems to have lost everything he loves and is landed with a small grandchild he tries desperately hard to resent. The young child, nicknamed 'Spice' just eats into his unwilling heart. <P> Sitting on the porch and stacking his pipe, he reflects over his life, delighting us with his description of the scenery and tranquillity as echoes of the hippoorwill pierce the silence. It is obvious Jones is well acquainted with this spectacle. <P> To keep his daughter and her boyfriend from using the girl as a 'cover' during drug trafficking, his actions now must be to keep the child from harm. His efforts to take Spice to safety drag them through treacherous swamps, yet throughout the little one's utter faith and trust is delightful. <P> The ducking and diving is quite nail biting and the plan formulated breathtaking in parts. <P> A tender, well written mystery where family loyalties are tried and tested. Young and old bridge the age gap with a beauty that is rare to behold. Review by Book Publicity Limited, UK

    A real page-turner

    The Third Season is a real page-turner. The retired Elmer Goodhand wants nothing more than to relax on his Georgia farm.But before he knows it, he's attempting to save his daughter and granddaughter from the woman's merciless drug-trafficking boyfriend. Jones is superb at capturing Southern landscapes. This is how he describes a bug-ridden swamp: 'Cypresses appeared as long as utility poles with leaves reaching for the sun. Their bell-bottom trunks balanced the whole in shallow, soupy water. Naked stems of limbless trees, having died from rising backwaters, were jagged exclamation points to the saveragery of the environment.'
