Jessica James rides again in the latest page-turner from award-winning author Kelly Oliver.
With only an old photograph to go on, amateur sleuth Jessica James is sent on a mission by her dying mother to find a washed-up magician called the Mesmerizer. Along the way, Jessica gets way more than she bargained for when she stumbles into a black market organ ring and learns secrets about her mother that will change her own life forever.
With wit and grit, Jessica and her posse take on the seamy underbelly of Vegas. Dauntless, determined, and awkwardly endearing, Jessica James continues to delight readers
Kelly Oliver grew up in the Northwest, Montana, Idaho, and Washington states. Her maternal grandfather was a forest ranger committed to saving the trees, and her paternal grandfather was a logger hell bent on cutting them down. On both sides, her ancestors were some of the first settlers in Northern Idaho. In her own unlikely story, Kelly went from eating a steady diet of wild game shot by her dad to becoming a vegetarian while studying philosophy and pondering animal minds. Competing with peers who'd come from private schools and posh families "back East," Kelly's working class backwoods grit has served her well. And much to her parent's surprise, she's managed to feed and cloth herself as a professional philosopher. When she’s not writing Jessica James Mystery Novels, Kelly Oliver is a Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University.
