About the Book: FBI profiler Yoko Tanaka is in Tampa, Florida helping the local PD with their ‘Sandman’ case. Three mothers and their daughters have been found murdered in their homes. The mothers have been brutally stabbed while the little girls’ have been smothered in their beds and posed to look like they’re sleeping.
Defying FBI protocol, Yoko makes a detour to Sarasota to entice Jefferson Winter to join the case. Winter has now graduated from college and is playing piano in a tourist bar. At first he’s reluctant to get involved but that’s the thing with Winter, what he says and what he means are usually two different things. All Yoko knows is that he’s the only person who can help her before the Sandman claims another two victims . . . but what Winter doesn’t know is that Yoko might be the only person who can help him come to terms with his past.
My Review: This is one series that I know I am guaranteed to enjoy and James Winter is my go-to author when I need some thrills!. Hush Little Baby is a novella which explains more about how Jefferson Winter joined the FBI and of course the gruesome serial killer they need to track and stop.
The story centres once again around the fabulous Yoko and delves deeper into her past and her relationship with Jefferson who is one of my all time favourite crime busters. Love it, Love Jefferson, love James Carol – #enoughsaid.
The character of Jefferson Winter came about because he wanted to write a series of books that gave him as much freedom as possible. He figured that the more interesting he kept things for himself, the more interesting it would be for the reader.
Although the novels are written as a series, James approaches each book as a stand-alone. Each story is set in a different location, and has a different cast of characters. The beauty of this approach is that the novels can be read out of order.
Broken Dolls, the first Jefferson Winter thriller, will be published in January 2014. This will be followed in the Spring by Presumed Guilty, the first in a series of eBooks set during Winter’s FBI days. Watch Me, the second Jefferson Winter thriller, is scheduled for publication in September 2014.
When he’s not writing, James spends his time training horses and riders. An accomplished guitarist, he relaxes by writing and recording music. He lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and two children.
