Blackball

Blackball by Jimmy Sangster

James Reed is an ex-Scotland Yard cop who then became the ex-husband of a famous Hollywood actress. He’s happily lazing around in the Malibu beach house he snagged in the divorce when a storm slams the coastline with monster waves. He rushes out to help evacuate other homes…and discovers a passed-out, drunken neighbor and a naked woman robbing the man’s floor safe. Reed lets her go… a mistake that gets him falsely accused of rape, chased by killers, and hired by a billionaire being blackmailed into marriage. And that’s only the beginning of Reed’s troubles.

Reviews For Blackball

Blackball 5.0

A satisfying and well-constructed Chandleresque plot. Sangster definitely makes the grade as a gifted suspense writer.

Publishers Weekly

Blackball 5.0

An unusually shaped plot and vivid characters.

Kirkus Reviews

Blackball 5.0

With his new novel, Sangster and Reed rise to new heights. This is a fast-moving, funny, sex-- very sexy -- story. The conclusion is a shocker. Sangster is writing better than ever and James Reed is a very charming character.

Robert J. Randisi, writing for The Orlando Sentinel

Blackball 5.0

A second helping of James Reed should be as well received as the first. Sangster certainly has a ball writing this series
