Stone Devil Duke by is my first book by K.J. Jackson, but won't be my last. Ms. Jackson has delivered a well-written book. The characters are phenomenal. Kudos to Ms. Jackson for these awesome characters and their interaction. Aggie is searching for her father's killers before they can kill her too. Disguised as a hack driver, Aggie unwillingly picks up Devin when his carriage suffers a broken wheel. Their story is packed with intrigue, action, drama and sizzle. I totally loved reading Stone Devil Duke and look forward to reading more from K.J. Jackson in the future. Stone Devil Duke is book 1 of the Hold Your Breath Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.
I listened to the audio of this book. The narrator was a bit annoying at times. I didn't really like his style. The story was okay, a bit dated maybe. The characters had blackberries instead of iPhones, GPS technology was brand new, and teenagers were on MySpace. The old tech was a bit distracting. It was interesting to think about how much easier it is for police as well as regular citizens to track people and find evidence using electronic means.
The parents are worried about their son because his friend committed suicide and he is shutting them out. So, they decide to put software on his computer so they can track every keystroke he makes. This, of course, leads to them finding out things they can't explain. And then their son disappears. There is also a man killing people, but we don't know exactly why until much later.
I liked the way the book brought together multiple plot lines as the story progressed. But it was more than a bit slow at times. In the end, it was just okay.
