Click on the cover MURDER BY ROAD TRIP, buy the book (you know you want to) and figure out whodunnit before our amateur PI, if you don’t die laughing first.

John J Jessop co-wrote the book MURDER BY ROAD TRIP with his daughter, Jackie. The story was inspired by a once-in-a-lifetime cross-country road trip they took together in 2016. The destinations may be real, but all events in MURDER BY ROAD TRIP are hilariously fictitious.

Hop in the RV and join Jason and family on a wild and comic cross-country road trip. From a monkey jewel thief, to a deadly windshield wiper, mad dentist, boosted libido, and the great cheese caper, this PI is a true crime magnet. Will Jason hang up his PI hat to take a lucrative job with a drug company, making his wife happy? More importantly, why is someone trying to steal his teeth?



If you think that a cross-country family trek in an RV is the definition of insanity, you’ll love John and Jacqueline Jessop’s MURDER BY ROAD TRIP. On the way to a California job interview, private investigator Jason Longfellow experiences chronic dental problems, encounters a jewelry-stealing monkey, and enjoys an unexpected boost to his libido. Strangers seem to be obsessed with stealing his teeth, as he faces gunfire in an RV park and a kidnapping on a cabin cruiser. Hop in the RV and join Jason, his wife and daughters on this wild and comic ride!Henry G. Brinton, author of the mystery novel City of Peace

John and Jacqueline Jessop add new meaning to the phrase “road trip” in their sequel to PLEASURIA. Adding just the right amount of laughter, they turn out the perfect recipe for fans of murder mysteries. Bravo!Benjamin H Berkley, Author of Against My Will and In Defense of Guilt.

Pleasant, cheerful and uplifting. Keeps you reading page after page.K.T. Barnett, Author, The Rose Not Taken


Future Father-Daughter Blog Posts About the Actual Cross-Country Trip

John co-wrote the book with daughter Jacqueline. In addition to buying the book (you know you want to, you like to laugh and everyone likes a good mystery), keep an eye out for a destination-specific blog series that will provide John and his daughter’s individual perspectives on their once-in-a-lifetime road trip. It should be fun, since we all know that twenty-something daughters always agree with dad:)
