The Corruptible
The Corruptible by Mark Mynheir

Product Description

How much money would it take for you to betray the truth? Ex-homicide detective Ray Quinn never had glamorous thoughts of the life of a private investigator-but being cornered in a bathroom stall by the enraged philandering husband of a client? That's something he could live without. Retired from homicide and living with a painful disability, Ray's options are limited. Stick to the job, keep impetuous sidekick Crevis alive, and spend quiet evenings with trusted pal Jim Beam, that's about the best he can hope for.
As a new client emerges, Ray finds himself in an impossibly large boardroom holding a check with enough zeros to finally lift him from his financial pit. The job seems easy enough: find Logan Ramsey, an ex-cop turned security officer who's taken off with sensitive corporate information. But few things are easy in Ray's world, regardless of the amount of zeros in the check.

This is the first of the Ray Quinn novels that i have read. Actually, it is also the first one of Mark Mynheirs that i have read.  Although this is not the first book in the series, i had no trouble following through. Enough is said about Ray Quinn’s history to bring the reader up to the present time. 

The pace was a little slower than i usually expect from a suspense novel, but since i have never read any of Mark’s novels before, i can’t say whether this is typical for a Ray Quinn novel or not. Also, i was reading it on my kindle for pc, which might have made a difference.

It is a well written crime novel with enough twists in the plot to keep me reading it and enough clues are given to make you think you know what is coming. Some of the things took me by complete surprise, which a good suspense novel should. The characters are well rounded, and believable and the story flows smoothly from one scene to the next.  I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys police crime fiction, and personally, i will be looking for more of Mark’s novels!

I received this book as an ebook free from Blogging For Books a division of WaterbrookMultnomah Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to make a positive review. The opinions stated are my own.
