Reviews of Jackpot Blood (2004)
Review by cherylktardif (2004-06-29)
Jimmy Fox's latest novel, Jackpot Blood, is a 'whale' of a treat! Adventurous and persistent, the main character, Nick Herald, is a genealogist who is driven to analyze family records of the Katogoula Indians. And in the process, he uncovers secrets, lies…and murder. The tribe is diminishing into non-existence unless Nick can dig up the past. Wary of hidden dangers, Nick stalks a killer bent on keeping the past dead and buried.
Jackpot Blood is rich with Louisiana imagery. Author Jimmy Fox exhibits an almost poetic quality in his descriptive ambiance. The quirky characters are 3-dimensional and ripe with spicy flavor ¯ Louisiana 'Hot Sauce' to an avid reader! WARNING: Read carefully, so that you don't miss a single detail! Jackpot Blood makes the reader yearn to research their own past, the lost generations before them. But then again, maybe a skeleton or two could be found in that closet too!
Hit 'pay-dirt' with Fox's newest novel in The Nick Herald Genealogical Mystery series. Take a gamble on this book; you won't be disappointed. In fact, after reading Jackpot Blood, you'll be ready to shout "JACKPOT!" I give it…three cherries!
