Really enjoyed Jackson Murphy The character you should hate but can't! He is a nasty, cruel, dirty dog. Wish I could put into words exactly how I feel about this book but I do not have the gift that the author Renee Miller has. Her timing and relevant humor make this book a must read. I recommend it to all my reader friends.
This turned out to be better than I expected. All Jackson wants is to enjoy life with the money he earned building his business from the ground up. The problem is that he doesn't want to share his money with his wife. If he divorces her she'll get half and there's no way he's going to share his wealth with a woman he hates. What to do? From the very first page I was hooked. This is a well-written novel with a protagonist that you'll love to hate. The author created a terrific character who is a [...]
Reading the story of Jackson Murphy is like driving by a train wreck -- you're immediately confronted with the uncaring, ruthless side of reality, and with every passing page, surprising complication and additional body, the view becomes both more repulsive and more fascinating. You will probably loathe this manipulative egomaniac, yet as the destruction in his wake turns into a tidal wave threatening to crush him, you'll surprise yourself wishing he had a lucky break. So prepare to be kept on t [...]
The Legend of Jackson Murphy was so much fun to read! Jackson Murphy was creatively and totally self-centered. He would do anything to gain or maintain his own pleasure. Of course, he just got himself deeper and deeper into a mire of his own making. We read about sociopaths all the time--their badness makes the news. Here, Renée Miller has created, with compassion, humor, and attention to detail, a portrait from the perps point of view. This is a fast paced story with one surprise after another [...]
Loved this book! I couldn't put it down. Renee is a really fine writer. Her characters are so thoroughly developed that I know what they look like and how they think. Her language is as spicy as to be expected in real life. Jackson is one of those characters we hate to love or maybe it's love to hatejust can't help but understand his drive to make life good, selfish though he truly is.Read this! It's quite an attention grabber.
I really enjoyed the first few chapters and I thought The Legend of Jackson Murphy was going to be a hit. Unfortunately, the story grew more unbelievable and far-fetched with each chapter. Sorry, but this one just wasn't my taste.
One bad dudeThe protagonist is an awful man. He treats women horribly. He plots, schemes and is a murderer. He leaves a trail of bodies and lies. Yet somehow you want him to win. From the first murder, things spin out of control, causing a new plot twist and another body. Will the police get him? Or the mob? Pretty good story all in all.
Loved this book from beginning to end! Every time you think you've guessed Jack's next move the author throws in another plot twist. I absolutely loved the references to Canada-hilarious eh?! This story leaves you wanting to know more about the legend of Jackson Murphy
Impressive! This book totally captured me right from the very beginning to the end. I was wanting to read more though. Great job on this one. Patiently waiting for another book to be published from this author!
You either love him, or you hate him. I couldn't put the book down. Good strong writing, face-paced plot, suspenseful story.

I tried to finish it, but it was completely unbelievable. Seriously.
good read but too much swearing. I don't like too much profanity, is not enjoyable.
Everyone is against Jackson Murphy but that's something he can solve a fantastic gripping novel which I would recommendl
