Open Your Eyes – James Carol (A Jefferson Winter Novella #3)

Jefferson Winter returns in a gripping ebook story from bestselling author James Carol.

Jefferson Winter is at the beginning of his FBI career. He’s young and unpredictable, but he has a gift – he can understand the mind of a murderer like no one else.

Winter is in Las Vegas with Yoko Tanaka, a tough agent with the unenviable task of showing him the ropes. The bodies of three young women have been found and each of them is missing a limb.

If the case is to be solved, Winter must be free to act – yet Tanaka’s superiors are watching closely, and it soon becomes clear that this killer doesn’t make mistakes.

My Review: The problem with novellas featuring your favourite “crime buster” is simply that they are too bloody short.

Featuring a young, arrogant and rather naughty Jefferson Winter, Open Your Eyes has the usual gripping storyline and rather gruesome killer that James Carol writes so well.

This novella doesn’t need to be read in order, thankfully or I would break out in hives, however I shall be downloading the other 2 novellas now as even a little Jefferson Winter is better than none.

About The Author: James Carol was born in Scotland in 1969, where he spent his early years. He moved to England in the eighties and has lived there ever since. At various times he has worked as a guitarist, sound engineer, guitar tutor, journalist, and a horse riding instructor.

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.
