About Road to Omalos

Seasoned investigator Claire Caswell and legendary Miami Dade state attorney, Gaston ''Guy'' Lombard, once again merge their acclaimed talents to tackle the most elusive of criminals in Road to Omalos. This time, when a gun-wielding man barges into the office of Caswell & Lombard, Private Investigation, the case takes the investigators from the steamy city of Miami Beach to Crete--the Greek island of romance and mystique. Arriving in Crete, the sleuths begin to track down the infamously dangerous target of their search. Unbeknownst to Claire and Guy, a group of merciless vigilantes also hunts for the same man . . . but for a very different purpose. Road to Omalos, with its rich throng of characters and colorful cultural history, interlaces a powerful tale of suspense, enchantment, and murder, as the search for a sociopathic criminal pegs the investigators and the vigilantes against each other in a perilous race to final justice.

"In Road to Omalos Jax expertly weaves this gripping narrative from the opening paragraph. As both heroes and lovers, Claire and Guy have a charming rapport. As investigators they are knowledgeable, scrupulous and engaging, earning compassion and garnering support as they traverse the plot's complex topography. The author's extensive knowledge of Crete, the history, the land, the customs, and local cuisine lends authority to an already lush landscape. Jax's meticulously drawn details entice and enthrall, consistently employing the five senses to bring her literary vision vividly to life. Vibrantly depicted characters often struggle with conscience as they vacillate between virtue and obligation in an array of interlacing subplots that serve to enhance this spellbinding tale of justice, vengeance, and vigilantism." --US Review
