- Customer Reviews:
‘Recalls Harlan Coben – though for my money Jackson is the better writer’
‘A clever device, adroitly executed and fun to read’
‘JACKSON is looming up in Lee Child’s rear-view mirror as a Brit writing superior hard-boiled American crime... The dialogue’s tough, the story slick, and Doyle’s a hero with like-ably rough edges’
‘His superb crime thrillers crackle with the tension... A walk on the wild side, but one you certainly wouldn’t want to miss’
Lancashire Evening Post
‘I’m a big fan of Doyle. He’s one of the most believable fictional detectives I’ve read’
‘David Jackson is a talented and forceful writer, and his prose is so good that for many this will be a book you have to get through in just a couple of sittings’
Crime Fiction Lover
‘A top read, a great addition to the series and one that has left me desperate to read the next’
Books and Writers
‘Yet again Jackson’s literary skills shine through with another fast and accomplished narrative together with impressive dialogue – a real page turner’

Doyle actually feels like a whole different character in this book. He is so angry and going by the rules goes totally out of the window whilst working on his new case. He is determined to get justice for the parents of a murdered sixteen year old girl. That justice seems to come at a price though as the person behind the murder gets deep under Doyle's skin and threatens to lose him everything.
The villain in this novel, I don't think I could have despised even more than I did. Not only did he get under Doyle's skin, he truly got under mine as well. So much so that I was really routing for Doyle to catch him out. Problem is though, he is one devious character and I was as infuriated as Doyle was at the injustice at times.
This authors books are an absolute must read if your a a big crime fan that loves their books to be adrenaline fuelled. Every time I pick one up I am well and truly hooked. The story lines are gritty, dark and full of tension.
Marked is a fast paced read that felt at times that I was going at full throttle and left me totally wind swept by the end. It's very much a story about gut instincts and staying true to what you believe. Another great novel in the series.
In this book we see a darker side of Doyle, he doesn't play well with others. I have already read Cry Baby, so hope book 5 will be out soon. Certainly recommend without a doubt.
Still love the humour in these books, here is a little quote.
"If there's a choice I'd stay alive. I can be a lot more persuasive when I have a pulse" Brilliant!
The thing about David Jackson's writing is that you get right inside Cal's head. The genius cop who is restrained by the system and hampered by his passion.
The story line is great, keeps you guessing and surprises til the end.
Keep writing Mr. Jackson and everyone who reads these books - would suggest you read them in order, tell your friends, let's get this guy on the bestsellers list!
I have read David Jackson books one after the other, and mainly in one sitting as I can't bear to put them down. Only just discovered and I am glad that I did. For fans of Lee Child, Harlan Coban and the ilk, David Jackson, for a Brit, captures all that is American about the crime world. His writing and cop humour is second to none, and I have read a lot of books. Just about to start Cry baby and no doubt another night without sleep. For my sake, David, don't write any more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You want us to believe in ...maybe even admire a main character who is sufficiently out of control of himself 1) to assault suspects in front of witnesses and 2) to continue threatening him (on several occasions) in front of police witnesses despite knowing IAD are watching you? Although he has some evidence that might support his suspicion he fails to pass it on to his partner who at least showed some signs of supporting him? Why? This is just plain thick. And annoying. And not very believable.
