Formerly a longstanding trial attorney before taking the big leap and devoting his fulltime attention to writing, RJ Jagger (that's a penname, by the way) is the author of over 25 hard-edged mystery and suspense thrillers including the Nick Teffinger, Jack Wilde and (the new!) Nicole Stone novels.

For over a decade, his books, both under the Jagger penname as well as other pennames, have been regularly acclaimed by the industry's most reputable book reviewers including Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, Library Journal, ForeWord Reviews, Publishers Weekly, Midwest Book Review, New Mystery Reader Magazine and many others.

In addition to his own books, Jagger also ghostwrites for a popular bestselling author. He has been a member of the International Thriller Writers since 2007. Currently, most of his backlist is offline while it is being re-edited and re-covered. Stay tuned for the re-release of his backlist plus several brand new Nick Teffinger thrillers, plus the exciting new series featuring Miami homicide detective Nicole Stone, which will hit the shelves in late 2018 or early 2019.
