Shattered Spirits by L.L. Bartlett is the 7th book in the “Jeff Resnick” mystery series. Publisher: Polaris Press, July 2016
If it weren’t for bad luck, Jeff Resnick would have no luck at all!
While riding his new racing bike, Jeff is hit by an SUV, an accident which has a cascade effect on his life. He loses his job to a replacement, his girlfriend pressures him to move in, his bank accounts are hacked, and a restless spirit begs for his help—all in less than a week. But it’s soon apparent that his so-called random accident is anything but, and the murder of a close friend has a hobbled Jeff on the run. Can he discover who’s out to destroy his life—and threaten those he loves most?
What a great set-up. A mugging. A murder. A death. A ghost. A destination. All intertwined in a complex story that gleams a mystifying tale of suspense and intrigue. An explosion of senses is exposed in this fast-paced drama that blew me out of the water with the narrative and actions of those involved. The innocence in how this case started, the fury from the past and the aftermath takes Jeff to a different level on the playing field. As usual, I enjoy my time spent with Jeff and his friends. This was a great read and I can’t wait to read the next book in this terrific series.
