Kitsap County Sheriff Detective Marcus Jefferson promised Joan, his wife, to be more attentive to her needs for a family man at home regularly. But a detective is not always able to follow leads and catch suspects on a 9 to 5 schedule. His latest endeavor involves uncovering the truth about his Uncle Jeremais Jefferson's death two years ago. Jerry, a Snohomish County sheriff's deputy, had investigated a drug cartel operation in his county. When the undercover research went bust, he was forced to resign after a 28 year career. Five months later a suicide ended the family embarrassment.

Marcus never believed his uncle took his own life and with the aid of his own father, Jerry's brother and a Seattle police officer, he dives into the cold case to prove a murder was committed. With evidence Jerry hid from the county department he uncovers corruption in the sheriff's office and potential judicial interference.

Threats and attacks against his family cause increasing angst in his wife and children, as well as his cousins, his Aunt Lydia, and his own mother and father. Can he resolve his uncle's death and keep his family safe from harm and potential death?

Review quote

"Jerry's Motives explores how and why a man follows his beliefs regardless of what others recommend. Peter writes about deep subjects with believable characters, and wraps it around a plot that grows in intensity to the bitter end." Award winning author, Terry Persun.

"Kitsap County Sheriff Detective Marcus Jefferson investigates cases no one else appreciates, but his current case is personal. Something about his Uncle Jerry's suicide just isn't right. Jerry's Motives spirals through a series of twists and turns to the surprising end that left me nodding my head in admiration at its cleverness."
ROBERT DUGONI, #1 Amazon and New York Times bestselling author of My Sister's Grave

"Relentlessly mysterious."

"So many twists, it's a compelling story to the end."

"Couldn't put it down."

"Jerry's Motives was engaging from the beginning. When you believe you know how the story ends a surprise twist develops...
This is a brilliant story that is hard to put down."
RJ BAUER, author

"Peter Stockwell is an author who spends time and energy on developing his talent for writing. The results are pronounced in his latest book, Jerry's Motives. The storytelling is tighter and more compelling. I look forward to more books from him." ML SCOTT
