When a young mother is found murdered in a derelict Eugene neighborhood - and her terrified young son is discovered hiding beneath the floorboards - Detective Jackson reluctantly takes the case. His own life is already in chaos, with his runaway teenage daughter, Katie, still gone and his girlfriend, Kera, facing her own family crisis. Matters get more complicated when the orphaned boy bonds with Jackson, triggering unexpected emotions and compromising his ability to investigate. Meanwhile, Detective Evans, one of Jackson’s most valuable colleagues, is pulled off the case to look into the death of a University of Oregon football star - leaving the homicide task force shorthanded. As Jackson works to solve the murder and find a home for little Benjie, he soon faces devastating choices that threaten everything he holds dear.

I don't know if it's just me but the last three audible books that I've listened to have all been below par (all different authors and narrators). I can't even return them because on audible (full website) it's saying not eligible for return.

This book is just ok in my opinion. Decent storyline which is quite believable and an ok narrator, least this narrator doesn't try to dp ridiculous accents. The story is a little slow paced.

Sigh...not sure If I can take any more mediocre books. At this rate I'll be hiring audio books on disc via the library for a £1.

Great reading

Got into Wade Jackson novels not too long ago, narration makes it easy to get into books quicker and makes the work day go by easier.

sellers tells a gripping compelling story

What made the experience of listening to Deadly Bonds the most enjoyable?

I found the story to be compelling, there were enough twists, and turns to keep the story fresh. The story was gripping,little Benjie daughter Katie, and Jackson's tough decisions kept things boiling.

What did you like best about this story?

I am a sucker for police stories, and this one kept me on the edge of my seat because it was unpredictable.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Benjie plunged the eppi pen into Buckley. That was a clever plot twist.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Here is justice being served in a delightful, and satisfying way
