Granite Oath [978-1-943166-32-9]

by James M. Jackson

Granite Oath Cover

On a Thursday afternoon, Kat Serrano leaves work early, briefly returns to her remote trailer deep in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula woods, and drives off with no explanation to her family. Two days later someone ransacks the trailer.

Kat is a Dreamer, and her mother won’t talk to the police for fear she’ll be deported and lose her 8-year-old granddaughter, Valeria.

Valeria is devastated by the events. She and her best friend from summer camp, Megan McCree, employ a “Pinky-swear” to get Megan’s grandfather Seamus McCree to learn what happened.

Seamus uncovers a tangled web of drugs, prostitution, and dummy corporations, and soon finds himself the target of killers. Anyone sane would wash his hands of the mess or turn it over to the police.

But Seamus has given his word, his granite oath, to learn the truth . . . even if it kills him.

Check out the first four chapters of Granite Oath.

What Readers Are Saying

  • Jim Jackson’s main character Seamus McCree gets himself into situations that are most unlikely, and yet, seem like natural consequences of a normal life. Maybe that’s why I like Seamus. He’s a normal, good guy—he tries to lead a moral life, isn’t a goody-two-shoes, and debates about what actions he’ll take that will damage his soul.

    ~ Elaine (Amazon Review)

  • This book is a page turner so much action and turns and edge of your seat things that keeps you guessing what could possibly happen next and will Seamus be able to be successful or will the criminals get him first?

    ~ Merry (Goodreads Review)

  • Twists and turns abound. Who knew a pinkie swear promise would lead to danger around every corner? Couldn't put it down.

    ~ Karen (Goodreads Review)

  • Packed with non-stop action, shady characters, and questionable business practices, the latest Seamus McCree novel takes readers on a wild ride filled with drugs, immigration issues, prostitution, and meth-making thieves in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

    ~ Sandra M (Amazon Review)

  • I love Seamus’ adventures and this one kept me turning the pages wondering if his Irish luck would hold. Even in the most stressful and heart pounding situations, Jackson’s dry humor shines through, which makes the stories double fun. Seamus also gets lots of help from friends and family, which is one of the things I love about these stories; that and the great locations.

    ~ Peg (Goodreads Review)

  • I read this straight through - could not put it down. Mr. Jackson has hit it out of the park with this one.
