What’s it about?
In the late nineties, a bad cop killed a good woman and DC Homicide detective Marty Singer watched the murderer walk out of the courtroom a free man.
Twelve years later, the victim’s daughter begs for help: the killer is stalking her now. But Marty has retired to battle cancer. A second shot at the killer – and a first chance at redemption – Marty has A Reason to Live.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am a lifelong fan of detective-genre mysteries, and this book reminds me of some of my old favorites, especially good old Lawrence Block. The prose is clean and concise; the story is deep and heartfelt; the hero is both flawed and stouthearted. This book was a pure pleasure to read. Very highly recommended!
