A pipe bomb explodes at a birth control clinic, then a young client turns up dead in a dumpster. Kera, the clinic nurse, discovers that the girl's Bible group is sharing more than the Good News. Confidentiality keeps her from telling the police, so she digs for the truth on her own-becoming the bomber's new target. Meanwhile, Detective Jackson races to find the killer, fearing that his own daughter could be next. But his investigation is blocked by power politics at every step. Can Jackson uncover the killer's shocking identity in time to stop the slaughter?
The Sex Club is the first book in the Detective Jackson Series by L.J. Sellers. The storyline is chock full of modern day societal issues: teenage sex, Iraq war casualties, and pro-life extremists - to name a few. Sellers doesn't sugar-coat any of them. It's a hard-hitting novel that makes you think a lot about today's society.
L.J. Sellers has a smooth writing style that is easy to read. Her characters are well drawn out, although I would have liked to have seen a bit more history on the pro-lifer to have more of an idea how she became the way she is. The story moves well with new surprises at every turn so you want to keep reading.
It looks like L.J. Sellers already has 4 other Detective Jackson mysteries out, so grab this one and get started!
