Wrongful Death: Update and Contest

Wrongful DeathWrongful Death (Jackson #10) releases next week (Feb. 24). I know it seems like a long wait but it’s also hard to believe that I have ten books in this series. I feel like I just started writing it a few years ago. It’s been a great adventure.

Here’s the jacket copy:

On a chilly Oregon morning, a policeman is found slain near the homeless camp where he’d been passing out blankets the night before. When Detective Jackson is called to the scene, witnesses point to a pair of mentally ill street twins as the likely perpetrators.
As the case progresses and arrests are made, the homeless community revolts against the police, and the chaos pulls detectives away from their investigations. Tension mounts, and the evidence begins to link a series of sexual assaults to the death of the murdered officer. The task force is quickly faced with a dangerous decision: Should they risk the life of another young victim to catch the killer?

I hope you enjoy the story! In next month’s Mystery Scene magazine, I have an essay about the real homeless twins this story was based on and my work with the homeless in founding Housing Help. Please check it out.

And I’ll be in Portland next month for Crimelandia (Left Coast Crime) March 12-15, where I’ll be signing copies of Wrongful Death. It’s a great convention for mystery novel fans, and it’s not too late to register or buy day passes.

I’m also giving away two print copies of the book, so post a comment and enter to win.

  1. Stephanie, I’m so glad you like the series. Email me with your address if you want the other print copy.

  2. I am currently reading my way through the Detective Jackson series at lightning speed! Amazon can’t deliver fast enough! I absolutely can not wait for the new book to come out. Thank you for amazing stories!

  3. I wish you could too! Have you ever been to Bouchercon? It’s a similar, but bigger convention, and it’s held all over, and more often back east somewhere.

  4. I wish I would be able to attend Crimelandia. 🙁 love the boxed set

LATEST REVIEWS

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The characters were compelling, the procedural work was dead-on, and the story was enthralling. Definitely recommended.”
~Michelle Gagnon, author of Boneyard
The author expertly intertwines multiple story lines, presents readers with fully realized characters that readers will feel they know, and keeps the action and suspense levels high. That’s a lot to expect from an author but L. J. Sellers delivers.” ~OverMyDeadBody
