Taking care of her p

Others have the synopsis covered, so I won't. I'll just say that this book was really, really good.

Josh (main character) was very likeable. I don't know why, but part way through the book, I became aware of hearing Nathan Fillion's voice when Josh spoke. If this is made into a movie--and I think it would make a great one, Fillion must be cast as Josh. I digress.

Morey's writing style is excellent. Not understated, but not over the top, either. The characters are very well developed; I had no prob

Jaidee: Clint Morey

Imagine a young 14 year old taken away from her family in order to benefit one man and lessen the financial burdens of another. Imagine how this young child feels when her father hands her over to a stranger in who needs to fulfill his quota of young girls and supposedly thinks he is helping this child live a better life.

This book is a thriller/mystery about a PI who normally exposes philandering spouses but gets caught up in the sex trade handled by the mob. Josh busts a husband found with an underage prostitute which causes him to get involved with Jaidee (a 14 year old) and soon finds them both fighting for their lives. Unfortunately, Jaidee has entertained some powerful movers and shakers and they don't want her to be able to ID them. The cops place her in a home to help her start a new life, but when Josh f ...more

I have to say that I am really starting to enjoy these detective novels! Las Vegas is the perfect setting for this story. Josh is not your typical Private Eye, but after a short stint working for the Las Vegas Police Department, that's just what he is. During a pretty routine unfaithful spouse case he stumbles upon a much bigger case involving child prostitution. He ends up on the run with a 14 year old Thai/Karen prostitute.

With the help of his team and a missionary he protects Jaidee while try

Clint Morey will be joining me on my blog for day 1 of Adult Fiction Week!
Look for a really great interview with Clint and my review of Jaidee!

Wow! It has been awhile since I have read a good adult fiction novel, and Clint Morey certainly has produced just that. Jaidee is a non-stop, action packed thrill ride of a book. I could easily see this novel being the basis for a movie. I have always loved suspense novels that keep you on your toes. Jaidee did not disappoi

Jaidee - Out of the Ashes is a fast-moving book with a well thought-out plot. Something happens in every chapter to keep driving the plot forward and the reader hooked. There are incidents that happen within the narrative that I didn't foresee and with other twists and turns, it's not at all predictable.

In detective novels it's very easy to see things as black and white and the characters within the stories too. Morey has chosen to use 'third person omniscient' (telling the story from different

a well thought out story line, reads fast and is engaging. Not my usual topics of enjoyment, based in Las Vegas where any sin goes, and child prostitution is the base of the story line. Characters have some good Samaritans and do the right thing. Good Character development and engaging character interaction.
I am not sure this an author I would pursue, based on the topic descriptions of his other books. Jaidee is well done though, and lived up to the review that i read about the book.

A good read.....for awhile I was beginning to believe that this was a true story...kinda of wish it had been and that they were really able to pull off what they did in Vegas!

One of those books that I wanted to.finish, but took time doing it. It was just an average read. Didn't hold my attention.
