Key West Dead (Jake Wolfe Book 6) by Mark Nolan – Review by Kerry Carr

Key West DeadKey West Dead by Mark Nolan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have read several of these adventure about Jake and Cody and they get better every time. The author does an amazing job of making the story come alive with descriptions of the locations to the thoughts and feelings the characters are experiencing. This book had me gripped from the first page and didn’t let go.

In this book we find Jake and Sarah attending a former marines wedding. However things aren’t happily ever after when the couple leave on honeymoon and their boat blows up.
Why did their boat explode? Who would want to kill them? Was it a random one off attack?

This is what Jake and his trusted dog Cody are going to find out. As time goes on and there are more attacks the attacker is getting closer and more personal. When the attacker sets his sights on Cody, Jake will stop at nothing to bring this person down.

Will he succeed before its too late? Or will the attacker get what he wants to destroy Jake and Cody?

This time he needs to dig deep and far to figure out this one! Everything in his life is starting to fall in line and everything is good when he figures out that all signs turn the same murderer that killed his partner many years ago. I swear, this series just keeps getting better and better! I love all of the twists and turns that are intertwined with story. You start at page one and you seriously cannot put it down. I get so involved with the storyline that I suddenly immerse myself in it and the next thing you know, I’m working right along with them to solve this case! I seriously cannot say enough about this book or this series. In my opinion, you should read this series from the beginning because you may get lost in the timeline. But, you can read this book on its own. You won’t be disappointed! Trust me!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Key West Dead is the most recent, 6th book in the Jake Wolfe series by Mark Nolan. This book, like those before it, are packed full of adventure. Jake and his dog Cody are always getting in the middle of trouble, and this is no exception. The book starts off with Jake attending a wedding of his close friend in Key West, Fl. Before the end of the first couple chapters, a boat explodes, friends are dead, and there is a serial bomber/terrorist making threats of more to come. Insert Jake, his dog Cody, and their best friend, cop, Terrell. The book is filled with suspense, keeping you on the edge of your seat. I didn’t want to put it down from start to finish, and love seeing the relationship of Jake and Sarah evolve. There is bound to be more books coming, because I don’t think Nolan would end the series before their marriage. So I look forward for the next in the series. Keep ’em coming!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Key Wast Dead (Jake Wolfe Book 6) by Mark Nolan is great! It’s been a while since I’ve read a thrilling crime novel and this one hit the spot. Although I haven’t read the other books in the series, I was able to figure out the main characters pretty quickly. I love that Jake and Cody work together to solve crimes. In this book, they are searching for a bomber who is terrorizing Key West by blowing up yachts, threatening some of Jake’ military buddies, and demanding money from the county. Following Jake and Cody work to find the bomber was thrilling. I can’t wait to pick up the earlier books and read more about the Jake & Cody combo.

Key West Dead is the sixth book in the Jake Wolfe Series by Mark Nolan .

WOW– this series just gets better and more addictive with each new release. Key West Dead is the gripping new instalment in the Jake Wolfe series by Mark Nolan. I know I keep saying this, but I really can’t get enough of this series- and I don’t think I’ll ever tire of joining Jake and Cody on one of their exciting ‘adventures’- no pressure, Mr. Nolan, but I hope you’ve got many more exciting adventures for Jake, Cody, and their many ‘friends’ to negotiate, because I have a slight addiction and need a regular ‘fix’ to keep me going- so a regular ‘supply’ for the foreseeable future would be excellent, thanks! 😊
This story could be read as a standalone- but as there are recurring characters, as well as other important details that help to build a bigger picture, I would recommend reading the other books first, before embarking on this adventure as knowing what has happened previously, and how much Jake and Cody have been through together- will greatly enhance your reading experience of this story.
This time Jake and Cody are pitted against a psychotic bomber who is hell bent on a demented agenda… and taking out Jake and Cody in a fiery inferno just became his top priority- the perfect ‘icing’ on his deadly plot. Will Jake and Cody manage to outwit their deadly adversary long enough to take him down, as well as keeping their friends safe in the process? This is definitely worth the read to find out!!
I could go on and on about every little detail of this fantastic book- but instead I will sign off here so you can grab yourself a copy and dive in asap- highly recommended!
I can’t wait to see what Jake and Cody get up to next!

Thank you, Mark Nolan, for another gripping read!

When Jake and Sarah are attending a wedding of an brother in arms, they get more fireworks than the wedding itself. Can Jake find the person blowing up boats or will he kill more people?

Jake and Sarah are attending one of Jake’s military buddies wedding and they decide to hire a boat for the weekend, with their trust friend Cody will the trio enjoy a lovely get away or will it end up in disaster.

While in the ceremony they discover that a few of his fellow vets have received death threats and Jake’s sense become alert as he feels that something is not right and that he feels something bad is about to happen, but on the way back to the boat they befriend a couple and walk them back to their boat, within minutes the whole atmosphere changes and Jake is drawn into a murder investigation. Can he find out who is blowing up all these boats, can he locate the bombs with his trust bomb dog Cody or will the killer escape.

This is the first story I have read by this author and I loved it, the twists and turners have you wrestling to uncover who the killer and the bomber is with piecing the clues along the way. I loved that the ne character is a dog and a very intelligent dog, the research that must have gone into the book is fascinating and brilliant to understand these brilliant creatures was absolutely amazing.

I loved the character of Jake and the interaction with his friends was a great read, the banter was a great light relief to a hard hitting storyline and with an excellent and well written story draws you further into the story page by page. I can’t wait to start this series from the beginning, although this can be read as a stand alone story I would like to get to know where Jake and Cody’s bond comes from and how Jake met Sarah and get to understand more that relationship.
