The Corruptible Review

I recently received a free review copy of The Corruptible: A Ray Quinn Mysteryby Mark Mynher from Multnomah Publishing Company.

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.

In what should be an open-and-shut case, Ray stumbles across Logan Ramsey in a seedy motel room. Only Ray wasn’t the first to find him. Now Logan’s dead, the client’s information is nowhere to be found, and Ray’s employer is less than forthcoming with the details. Suddenly the line between the good guys and bad guys isn’t so clear. With a foot in both worlds and an illuminating look at an unhappy ending that could well be his own, which will Ray choose?

***I have to admit that I had a hard time getting through this book. Maybe it's because this is a sequel in a series. Maybe because it's just slow, or maybe because it just wasn't my particular cup of tea. I'm not sure. Many others who read this book have given it great reviews, so I will keep this book on my shelf and try it a second time and see if it grabs me more the next time around.


Hi there! I'm stopping by from Wednesday's blog hop.

Please stop by if you have a chance- we have daily giveaways and more!

I love suspense and mysteries. Have o agree with you about reading a book in the middle of the series. Hard to catch up
