Former Police Officer Releases New Book of Detective Stories – "The Next Act"

Portland, ME, November 23, 2013 --( Former police officer and private investigator, Jim Jesson is pleased to announce the release of his new mystery book, "The Next Act."

If variety is the spice of life, then get ready for some tasty spices. Like many detectives, Jim Jesson wore many hats. Just when he was hot on a trail, he'd be reassigned, or loaned to a different division. Occasionally frustrated, Jim learned to live with the changes, but longed for the day when he could strike out on his own as a private investigator and choose his cases. "The Next Act" contains twenty detective stories in unusual settings and circumstances, when he was both a police detective and a P.I.

Listening to the reader, they include many more stories in "The Next Act" than their first book, "The Case Book of Detective Jim Jesson." Readers asked for different and funny stories and the authors obliged.

"Being different is my signature," says Jim, "The humor comes with the 'oddity' of the cases. With ample clues, follow along with us as we try to solve unusual and challenging cases in our career."

"The Next Act" is available in both print and ebook format.
