Romance Suspense and Cody. If you love a well written suspense story this one’s for you.Not for those under 18, due to adult theme.

Jake Wolfe is someone you do not want after you. He is a lawyer by day and assassin by night. He really just wants to be left alone with his dog and girlfriend. But someone is always ready to change things for Jake. He is framed, and it is he who must prove his innocence. All the while protecting his loved ones and friends. It’s a race against time.

I love reading Mark Nolan‘s books. Everyone of his characters play a hot part in his story. My favorite thing about his books are, that each of his main characters tell you what they are thinking throughout the story. Cody is still my favorite character! I love his way of thinking. This is a fast paced, quick page turning story. I can’t wait to see where Mark Nolan takes Jake and Cody next! Job well done!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Jake Wolfe Series bundle Box set is books 1-3 of the Vigilante Justice Thriller series by Mark Nolan.

Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie is book one of the Jake Wolfe series. This book is suspenseful with major plot twists I didn’t see coming. Jake wants to leave his flawed past behind him but even he can’t ignore what he needs to do this time. How far will Jake have to go to protect the people he cares about when he accidentally stumbles upon the identity of a murderer?

Vigilante Assassin by Mark Nolan is book two of the Jake Wolfe series. This book can be read as a standalone or you can read book one first. As soon as I started reading this book, I was sucked in to the suspense and mystery in the story. This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it.

Jake Wolfe is not your average character. He does his own thing, plays by his own rules. However, that doesn’t mean he isn’t protective of those that need it.

Lauren Stephens thought everything she had was perfect. Until she wakes up to her husband having vanished. This is when Lauren and Jake’s story intersects and their lives become intwined. Jake finds a lot of dangerous information while investigating Gene’s disappearance and has to protect Lauren and her children from what he finds.

What will Jake’s investigation turn up?

If you want a story you can escape into for awhile this is definitely is the book for you!

Killer Lawyer by Mark Nolan is book three of the Jake Wolfe series. This book grabbed my attention from the beginning and I couldn’t put it down.

Jake has some secrets. Now, his city is racked with fear and he’s being framed. Jake just wants peace but instead, he is investigating random shootings to determine who is behind them. Will Jake be able to end the shootings?

This book is full of suspense and keeps you hanging on to find out what happens. The characters are developed well and you root for them the whole time. It was a great read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Jake Wolfe Series by Mark Nolan are a great collection for anyone who enjoys crime thriller books. The books follow Jake Wolfe and his retired war dog Cody. I would compare them along the lines of Michael Connelly. I would give the series a 5 star review, with the books getting better as the story progresses. They can be read as stand alone, but the characters overlap and I got invested. It is full of surprises, and does a great job developing the characters, their relationships together, as well as fully building their past.
Book 1- Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie is the story of a killer, known as The Artist, who is hired by a group of wealthy people to kill lawyers. He is creative in his methods, putting a lot of thought and creativity into each job. A photo journalist (and former Marine) Jake Wolfe, accidentally captures the first murder on film, as well as a perfect shot of the killer. He turns the evidence over to his best friend Terrell, who is a homicide police officer, as well as to the media, which turns Jake into a target. The killer is enraged at Jake, and adds him to his kill list. Jake, his dog Cody, and his best friend Terrell, try to catch the killer, before he catches them.
Vigilante Assassin is book 2 in the Jake Wolfe Series. Jake and his retired war dog Cody assist in a multi agency investigation to find a missing husband, which quickly turns into something much bigger than just a missing person. I enjoyed this book more than the first, and give it a 5/5 star review. It is well written, and full of mystery and suspense. It kept me on the edge of my seat and wondering what will happen next. Jake is a character who lives by his own set of rules, and has no hesitation to kill when necessary. He has a soft spot for children and animals, which results in his being in being in dangerous situations. I highly recommend this book to anymore who enjoys thrilling suspense books.
Killer Lawyer is the third book in the Jake Wolfe series by Mark Nolan. Jake is a complex character, he is a lawyer by day, and an assassin by night. He works with the US Marshalls, and also alongside the SFPD. He also is a retired marine, and K9 handler, so he and his dog Cody chase down criminals. In this book, they are after a serial killer that is terrorizing the greater San Francisco area. Jake has a lot of connections that help him track the killer, including his best friend Terrell, who is part of SFPD and Jake used to be a photo journalist, so he has ties to the media as well. Overall its a very good book, with a good balance of psychology, law and suspense and drama. I love Mark Nolan’s stories, and this did not disappoint.

I really enjoyed this series and the non stop mystery and suspense that each book had. I found myself lost in the pages and couldn’t stop reading till the end. The twists and turns kept me guessing till the end. Each Book is wonderfully written and the characters are very well developed and I thought very relatable . I can’t recommend this series enough, it’s one I know I’ll reread over and over again. You won’t be disappointed I know I wasn’t. I can’t wait to read more from this Author.

This is a fantastic collection of stories – I love Jake I think he is an awesome lead character, he is a determined person and very meticulous in what he does. I love his ‘relationship’ with Cody! I love the way people form such close bonds with their dogs. The author has created such a multi-dimensional story that I just couldn’t put it down; he kept me guessing the whole way through with his rich detailed writing full of twists and turns. The multiple points of view in the story give for a full rounded read and the characters, as expected, were well developed.
Each of the books in this box set see’s Jake (and not forgetting Cody) tackle some interesting cases! They are all definitely worth a read!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Vigilante Justice Thriller Series” features Jake Wolfe and his dog Cody (and don’t we all love a good book with a good dog?) and the many adventures they take while taking care of business.

Each book could be read as a stand-alone (I read 2 and 3 before book 1) but read in order is a treat. There are common threads and relationships that flow so well through each story. Each character is well developed including Cody. Cody a good boy and a great companion to Jake. We even get to hear his thoughts at times.

This is a series that is filled with suspense and fast paced action, at times I was reading as fast as I could because I just had to know what happened next. Sometimes the outcome what not what I expected.

I absolutely recommend this series, especially when it is packaged as a box set. What a treat.

5 Stars

This is such a great series, really well written, clever, and completely absorbing. You can’t go wrong with a Mark Nolan novel and with this bundle you get three books for the price of one. Brilliant!

BOOK #1:
5 Stars

Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie is a riveting novel by Mark Nolan. Mr. Nolan has produced a truly gripping and action packed, suspenseful thriller. This exciting book has so much going on within its pages that I was bowled over, in a very good way! It contains drama, suspense, a bit of mystery, police investigation procedures, crime/criminal activities, military tactics/terminology and flashbacks, news and photo journalism references, secret organisations, sexy women, vile villains- and so much more.
It is quite a long book, but it is so engrossing, I was completely wrapped up in the story; only putting it down to take care of my ‘real life’ responsibilities- and even then, I couldn’t stop thinking about the story and anticipating what would happen next.
Jake Wolfe is a military veteran who is currently working as a photo journalist for a local news channel. He was following a lead on a potential story that had him ‘tailing’ a well-known lawyer, in the hope of digging up some ‘dirt’ on him. The lawyer has driven to an exclusive golf club, where Jake is witness to the lawyers’ murder, capturing the whole thing on camera and in the process he gets an image of the killer on film.
The killer who is known as ‘The Artist’ doesn’t like to leave loose ends and when he realises he has been seen, he is determined to kill Jake, “the only good witness is a dead witness”. So ensues a ‘game of cat and mouse’, the killer is hell bent on tracking down Jake and silencing him, permanently!
He has a kill list to work through- it’s made up of several lawyers who have been chosen to die. He takes pride in his work and wants to make the kills creative, artistic and memorable. The annoying journalist has just made it onto the list and is going to die very painfully.
With the help of his best friend Terrell Hayes, a plain clothes Police Inspector in the homicide division of the San Francisco Police Department- Jake investigates and reports on the killings, while also trying to stay alive. His military training, his dog Cody and a bit of Irish luck, are the only things that stand between him and the killer. But the killer is meticulous, well planned and always seems to be able to evade capture.
When you add an abusive and unhinged ex-fiancée, with a drinking problem and a penchant for snorting drugs; a sociopathic police Officer who uses their badge to bully, who can’t stand the sight of Jake and has a score to settle with him; a secret organisation with its own agenda; and an ex-military service dog with canine P.T.S.D- you find the story just ignites into an adrenaline inducing journey, full of unexpected twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat, devouring every word with bated breath.
From the conceptualization, to the skilled execution in recounting his story, Mr. Nolan has managed to incorporate quite a lot into this book; such a lot of dynamic, individual and fully developed characters and plenty of action- and this is only a portion of what this exceptional storyteller has been able to capture on the pages. He has accomplished all this in his own, unique style- producing a story that flows smoothly and seamlessly from one page to the next and captivating you from the first paragraph.
I wouldn’t change a thing about this book; I loved it all so much! It is a truly remarkable story and I wholeheartedly recommend reading it, you won’t be disappointed.

Book #2:
5 Stars

Vigilante Assassin is the superb second addition to the Jake Wolfe series by Mark Nolan. It is a very memorable, gripping and suspenseful read. This is a multidimensional story- with lots of action, drama, intensity and danger.
We once again team up with former marine Jake Wolfe and follow his lead, as this incredible story plays out. It is set a little over a month since the last story left off. Jake is no longer working at the news channel as a photojournalist- he isn’t completely sure what he wants to do now. He has something in the pipeline, but needs to wait to see if it will pan out. He is living on his friend’s boat, with his canine companion, Cody.
Lauren Stephens wakes to discover her husband is missing- with no trace of him to be found. Jake gets hired to try to find her husband Gene- but what he and Cody discover leads them down a dangerous and complicated path, full of intensely dangerous situations, all while they try to figure it all out. Lauren may not have known her husband as well as she thought she did and now she and her children are in grave danger. Jake may be a magnet for trouble, but he is also incredibly protective, especially of women, children and animals. So, he will do everything he can to protect them and keep her and the children out of danger.
This is a fast paced and exciting read with lots of twists and surprising developments. This is such an absorbing read, I ended up reading it in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down, I really need to know how the whole story played out!
The story is told from several (third person) POV’s, which adds an extra dynamic to the whole story.
The characters are so great- they are completely developed, fully realised characters with their own quirks, flaws and unique personalities. I especially loved how detailed and developed Cody’s (the dog) personality was- it’s this attention to detail that really sets this book apart from others in the same genre!

Book #3:
5 Stars

Killer Lawyer is the latest addition to the Jake Wolfe series by Mark Nolan. It is an incredibly clever, intense, gripping and suspenseful read. This has a complex, multi-layered storyline- with lots of action, drama, intrigue, humour, danger, tension, and mystery.
We once again team up with former marine Jake Wolfe and follow his lead, as all the excitement unfolds. Jake has earned his law degree, and has also been recruited to undertake dangerous, covert assignments on behalf of the government. His constant companion- trusty, highly intelligent, and loyal ex-war dog, Cody, live on a motor yacht owned by a wealthy friend.
When a deranged killer starts killing random targets on the streets on San Francisco, Jake and Cody are determined to hunt him down and eliminate the threat. But what happens when the killer decides to target Jake, Cody and all the people they love most in the world? This book really is worth the read to find out all the exciting details for yourself.
It is a fast paced story with lots of twists and surprising developments. This is such an absorbing read, I ended up reading it in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down, I really need to know how the whole story played out!
The story is told from multiple POV’s ( even Cody the dog gets a say), which gives a well-rounded perspective of the developments, and adds an extra dynamic to the whole story.

So, if you are looking for a story with a gripping, well written, interesting, and very absorbing read- then this is definitely the series for you!
The next book/s can’t come soon enough for me!

Thank you, Mr. Nolan!

5 out of 5 stars

This is an amazing boxset. It includes three books that once you start reading are very hard to put down. I enjoyed reading about the characters of Jake Wolfe and his war dog Cody. Jake is a man who is resourceful and has been well trained as an assassin. In these stories, he finds himself a target by killers and helping a woman and her children when they are targeted by criminals. I enjoyed that his war dog Cody also assists him. Cody is a dog that is very intelligent, and I loved reading about him. What does the future hold for Jake and Cody? Read these books to find out. These stories had me on the edge of my seat wondering what will happen next. There is action and danger around every corner. Jake is someone who is intelligent and when challenged or becomes a target is not hesitant about breaking the rules in order to survive. I also enjoyed reading about the characters that help and interact with Jake. The books are very detailed, and I felt like I was right there with Jake and Cody. Don’t miss out on a box set that is thrilling and addictive. Highly recommended.
