    "Private Dick Hackney McTrite" Shortly after this review Walker Jackson changed the name of the book to Private Dick Hackney McTrite; PI HARRY WALKER by Walker Jackson Reviewed by Author Michelle Tercha For Walker Jackson's title character, PI Harry Walker, a few short weeks changes his life forever. A lively and fast paced story mixed with an endearing character makes for a good book. As Jackson promises, his book is sprinkled with cliches, but they flow easily with the dialogue. In PI Harry Walker, Jackson created a flawed but likeable man, one who strives for justice and tries to improve himself along the way. The action starts when Harry sees dollar signs and accepts the case of a mobster's wife. She wants a divorce and needs photographic evidence of her husband's trysts. He begins the case by spending some money, sharing it with his beloved wife, and figuring out how to obtain the photos. Then an alter ego is born, one who brings levity to the story. Harry gets the... More > photos but is fingered by the mob soon after. He flees to Cincinnati and begins digging into an adoption case for a waitress friend, which turns out more prosperous than both dreamed. Tragic circumstances force Harry to go back to New Orleans in disguise, seeking justice for those who wronged him. One of very few mistakes Jackson makes is revealing an important plot point on the back cover. He would have served this reader better by keeping it a secret. Jackson paints a vivid picture of New Orleans, giving the book an extra character and terrific flavor. Harry Walker is well drawn, and unforgettable. I await more Harry Walker books, and I recommend this book for an easy and light read. Slip into a cozy chair and jump into Harry's world.< Less
