Now over to Jacqui...

 Imagine taking amnesia and redirecting its path.  It’s not you who lose your memories, but it’s the world around you.  Friends, family, everyone who you ever knew now looks at you like a stranger.  The upset in your life, the loss you feel with every breath, this is the concept facing Alexandra Madison as everything she knows unravels.

                MAGIC MAN was an interesting ride to take.  It showed me aspects of society that I had not looked into in depth.  I studied a famous murder investigation from the point of the view of the police until I, too, was burned out. Walking the streets of Hollywood—Sunset, Vine, Franklin—I saw the people and heard stories of lives with wrong turns.  Cemeteries of the famous and forgotten stand ready for a person to remember.

                A mansion stands in the hills, a mansion where a real life murder occurred, one I visited and saw the inside.  A mansion where Peter Mackenzie might have walked the halls, taken his dates and finally left for his own life away from the wealth.

                MAGIC MAN is a visit into history where history comes to 2015, bringing with it an evil that should never have been allowed to continue.

                It was a pleasure to write, even on the nights the research kept me up. The examination of human strength where one person says “that’s not possible” and the other stands by her conviction “I know what is real.”

                MAGIC MAN is the story where evil took love and love found its way home even when it was so obvious it was gone.  


 Jacqui Jacoby's newest release is MAGIC MAN



Detective Peter Mackenzie knew crime and knew his job. With The Cemetery Man schedule to leave the next body on the next grave Peter doesn’t have time for the puzzling Alexandra Madison. Her wild stories of a stolen life and family and friends who don’t remember her. Her last resort, she tells him is him and the relationship they shared. 

Peter doesn’t need this nonsense and his eccentric father walking in only irritates him more. Until his father utters the name everyone forgot, giving hope to Alexandra for the first time. 

Time is their enemy as the weekend grows closer and on Sunday, Peter knows another body will be waiting.
 What he doesn’t know, what he couldn’t know, even with Alexandra delving deeper into his father’s past, the victims are not random. They are chosen with reason and the monster who takes them is not done. 

She is coming for one of them.

  1. I have to say parts of Jacqui's research sounds a tad depressing. But the murder aspects sure would keep me entertained! Wishing her much success.

    1. Yeah, not all research is happy. Peter was burning out and for a little while I had to join him. I think it makes it a more realistic read.

    1. Difficult? Naw not really difficult. A lot of people watch crime shows and I avoid them like the plague. Reading the real stuff, you just have to be careful not to go to deep. And the cemetery? I always take flowers to my favorites.

    1. I didn't just get to go in. They staged a three part play in it and you got to go to room to room to watch it ... I think one of them was the room the real murder took place.

    1. Research was off the normal route (from the writer who just rewrote vampires) but it was really satisfying, It took me to so many places.

    1. Yes it was, but I got to see a lot of cool things. I actually love graveyards so this was neat. And the murders, I had some background in the case I was studying so I just vamped it up a bit. Still gets on some of it.

  20. This sounds amazing. I love the unique take on the loss of memories. Thanks for sharing and wishing Jacqui the best of luck. I am seeing her everywhere today. :)
