For Readers New to Seamus McCree ...

After you have read Ant Farm, this "boxed set" includes the next first three Seamus McCree novels (Bad Policy, Cabin Fever, and Doubtful Relations) is available for Kindle at $9.99 (it's like getting the third novel for only $0.09). Of course you can read any of the novels for free on Kindle Unlimited.

BAD POLICY: It’s the first “IRA six pack” since the 1970s and The Troubles in Northern Ireland. And Seamus McCree is in hot water. Again.

Seamus returns to Cincinnati after a routine business trip to discover his home has become a crime scene. The murder victim posed in his basement is an acquaintance who endured the six pack: bullets to his ankles, knees, and elbows. Forced to prove his innocence, Seamus uncovers a twisted trail that leads back to his Boston roots. He’s stunned to learn the truth about his father’s death and the resulting divorce of Boston’s Irish mafia and the Provisional IRA.

The more Seamus digs for the truth, the more his life unravels. As the body count climbs, all trails lead back to him, forcing Seamus underground to smoke out who is framing him — and why — before he becomes the next victim.

CABIN FEVER: With his house in Cincinnati in ruins, Seamus retreats to the family cabin for some well-earned rest and relaxation. But his plans for a quiet, contemplative winter in the wilds of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula are thrown out the window when he discovers a naked woman on his porch during a blizzard. The mystery woman is suffering from hypothermia, frostbite, high fevers, amnesia—and rope burns on her wrists and ankles.

Snowbound at the cabin, without transportation or phone coverage, Seamus struggles to keep the woman alive and find a way to get an SOS message out. What he doesn’t know is that a domestic paramilitary organization is hunting for an escaped female prisoner—and closing in on his isolated refuge.

DOUBTFUL RELATIONS:

Financial crimes investigator Seamus McCree has wife problems, and Lizzie’s not even his wife anymore. Her current husband disappeared on a business trip to Savannah. Was he kidnapped? Dispatched by his hedge fund partners? Or did he run off with another woman? Police assume he's AWOL, and Lizzie turns to Seamus for help.

Seamus has no desire to be sucked into Lizzie’s drama again, but her angst is also affecting their son, Paddy. Seamus agrees to help discover the truth, a quest that soon involves the entire extended family. Long buried secrets surface and each member must confront the question, "How far can you trust your family?"

Equal parts road trip, who done what, and domestic thriller, book four in the Seamus McCree series takes psychological suspense to a new level. Seamus McCree fans and newcomers alike will delight in this fast-paced novel that leaves no one in the family unchanged and keeps you guessing until the very end.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING about the Seamus McCree series

I love Seamus McCree—a savvy PI who tackles the mysteries of life with heart and brains and humor.”
~ Hank Phillipi Ryan, Agatha, Anthony, Daphne, Macavity, and Mary Higgins Clark award winner.

“The Seamus McCree series is one to watch!”
~ Steve Hamilton, Edgar winning author, Let it Burn

"Cabin Fever is a recommended pick both for crime and mystery readers who enjoyed the prior Seamus McCree story in Bad Policy and for newcomers such as this reviewer, who encounter Seamus here for the first time.

With its combination of social consciousness, political action, intrigue, and family relationships, Cabin Fever will satisfy any mystery or thriller reader."
~ D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"Seamus McCree is a protagonist that if you're ever a woman running from evil incarnate you want on your side. He's one smart protagonist and James M. Jackson is one fine writer who I compare to William Kent Krueger and Craig Johnson in that he knows how to reel in the reader, turn a phrase and pace a book perfectly that you have to know what's going on and can't stop thinking about it. Highly recommend for thrilling mystery."
