Jackfish Reborn by Rejean Giguere

jackfish rebornBlurb from goodreads.com, please scroll down for my review.

In 1885 Chinese laborers were brought to North America to build the railroads. The triads came with them. Caught up in the clashes, Tiger Chang manages to send a letter home about an incredible discovery.
128 years later…
Phil Hardy just wants everyone to leave him alone. That way no one gets hurt. Running from his past, he thinks he has found the peace he’s seeking on the cliffs looking out over the shores of Lake Superior.
Dragon Chang is following in the footsteps of his great-grandfather, in search of his discovery. The young triad leader will use all his available resources, including the killing skills he learned on the opium smuggling routes in China, to locate and secure his future.
Local police officer April Harrison has a handle on everything going on in her community, except her abusive ex-husband.
Everything goes sideways when she starts asking questions about who is hanging around the old ghost town of Jackfish and the past begins to catch up with the present in more ways than one.

 

This is the second book I have read by this author and this is his latest book, and was not disappointed, (the first was Endpoint, click here to read the review). Another action adventure from Rejean.

A well written book with only 190 pages but don´t let that put you off, there is plenty of action, a little mystery with the characters and even a smidgen of romance.Interesting and engaging start, the book takes you from China in the year 2012 to Canada in the year 1883 and then to the year 2012 in Canada and there are various jumps in time thought the book, but there is no problem in understanding the time jumps, it is very well explained and written.

The best parts of all for me were the 1883 when Tiger was the main character. Although I did also enjoyed the well researched history of Jackfish. (Jackfish is a ghost town in Canada). You learn quickly the connection between the future and the past.  I also loved Phil´s character.

Nicely written gun battles in the bush around the ghost town, nice descriptions of the surrounding areas and there is enough action to keep you wanting to read more.

The book was nicely wrapped up, the title suits it fine as does the cover. For more information click on the link, http://www.rejeangiguere.com/ Read my review of another of the authors books Endpoint
