A Reason to Live (Marty Singer #1)A Reason to Live by Matthew Iden

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!

Where can you find it? The ebook is free (my favorite price!) and is available from: Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iTunes, and Smashwords. It’s also available in audiobook from Audible and iTunes.
