A complicated web of blackmail

Christopher J. Lynch's One Eyed Jack is a story of blackmail on steroids. The main character, Jack, has turned extortion into a precision business, taking what he calls a "sin tax" from those with something immoral or nefarious to hide.

One of his usual practices is staking out sleazy motels to take pictures of those about to meet up, and extorting money from them to keep the secret. This is where he runs into Marion, a woman caught in more than Jack's trap, and where his focus changes as he tries to go after the bigger fish turning her life upside down.

I wouldn't exactly call it a page turner, but I did keep listening and wanted to know what would happen. It ends in a bit of a cliff hanger, but there is enough resolution so one doesn't feel completely cheated. If I have any complaint about the story, it's that Lynch occasionally throws in very detailed unimportant-to-the-story details. This happens more in the beginning, and once the main story gets rolling, I didn't notice it happening anymore. There is one scene I found totally unbelievable, but I don't want to give anything away.

Tom Jordan does an excellent job with the men's voices. His women's voices were all a bit wispy and made me feel like they were all about to fall asleep, besides all sounding nearly the same. However, I know it is a difficult thing for men to do women's voices without sounding goofy. I might suggest, though, to vary speech patterns or something to give them some unique personality.

All in all, One Eyed Jack is an enjoyable "listen" that I would recommend.
