5 thoughts on “Guilty or Else

  1. I loved this book. I become entranced with mysteries with the Earl Stanley Gardner, Raymond Chandler and Agatha Christie. Sherratt writes in the same style as these tried and true writers. The story is set in the seventies and it is a typical noir mystery. The only criticism I have is that O,Brien is trying to prove his client’s innocence and he keeps getting distracted by other issues. Granted, it turns out that those issues are very pertinent to the story, but I almost forgot there was a murde

  2. I’m on a roll….another great story by Jeff Sherratt ! Keep ’em coming! The details are so simply put, they actually let you use your imagination. I often find myself driving around a certain area of the city an imagine “Jimmy’s Office”, or drive by the Police Station and imagine something that just happened….or maybe driving down Florence Avenue where Rocco’s was (now something else), and seeing the cliental going in and out. Yeah, it’s awesome to be able to actually put yourself into a book

  3. First Time

    This is the first time I have read anything from is author and about his main protagonist Jimmy O’Brien and I must say I was truly impressed. A nice fast paced thriller and mystery that made me like all the characters involved and along with the authors writing style made it such an easy read. Yes, I will add this series to my collection of other series.

  4. I’ve come to really enjoy the Jimmy O’Brien series and want to read more. It’s great to read a book that is centered in your hometown (Downey)…you start to think of the places you’ve been or what was once there. It’s like an old school detective novel.

  5. The story takes place in the 1970s and it was fun to read thins tale that sticks to that time period. The absence of personal computers, Internet and cell phones can really change the underlying story line. Fun.
