Whoa, the guy must have a death wish... XD But I like this better. You explain what is going on in his head and by doing that you do not just TELL what is happening but you ShOW what sort of person Jack is...

Can you actually become a PI with a criminal record? Especially for murder?

...long time," Buck said angrily. here, the comma is needed to close your speech tag. And I'm not sure I like the adverb. It's not wrong but could Buck not growl for example. Give me a strong verb any time..

Jack sounds ditzy here. Even if he might not remember them all in real life but this is fiction. By asking himself, Jack gives the impression of an airhead which he probably is not. "Remebered him all to well" is more to the point, better suited to a hard-boilded (well, sort of) detective
