Book Review: Double Cross by James Jordan

Product Description

Double Cross continues the story of Taylor Pasbury, a heroic young woman introduced in James David Jordan’s novel, Forsaken (“highly readable . . . Taylor is a character worth another visit” —BookPage).
Raised by a father who was a former Special Forces officer, Taylor is beautiful and brilliant and knows how to take care of herself. But she is haunted by her past and the sacrifice her father made to save her from a brutal rape when she was seventeen. After a controversial stint in the Secret Service, she has become the most prominent private security specialist in America. When she discovers the body of a former client’s top assistant, all the evidence points to embezzlement and suicide. But Taylor has no way of knowing that her mother, who ran out when Taylor was nine, is about to reappear and lead her down a twisting path of danger and deceit. It’s a road that won’t end until they reach the spot where Taylor’s father died—where Taylor learns some sacrifices can never be earned.


I enjoyed reading this high-paced and suspenseful novel. The plot kept me flying through the pages, and the characters were intriguing. I have to admit some surprise that James Jordan could write so convincingly from the point of view of a female. I appreciated that the characters were not presented as being perfect, but as flawed human beings who make mistakes. This is actually the first book I've read from this author, but I found it easy to get into the story despite not reading the first book in the series. Definitely an author I will keep an eye out for.
