The Corruptible Review
The Corruptible: A Ray Quinn Mystery written by Mark Mynheir is a wonderfully written mystery. This is the second book in the series. Private Investigator Ray Quinn who is an ex-homicide detective finds himself in a tangle of criminal activity, murder, and betrayal. “Retired from the force and living with a painful disability, Ray’s options are limited.” He starts his own P.I. business paired with his trusty sidekick Crevis. The two make a wonderful team. Ray is offered a job with a shady client, who he feels isn’t being totally honest with him. Armon, the client, offers him a hefty amount of money that makes it hard for Ray to refuse so he takes the case. He’s trying to find Armon’s “valuable” information and trying to find who killed an ex-cop that was somewhat shady himself.
I really enjoyed The Corruptible and am looking forward to reading more in this series. Mark Mynheir did a wonderful job with this book. I had not read The Night Watchman and although this is the second book in the series it didn’t matter it was easily followed and it wasn’t necessary to read the first one in order to enjoy this one. The pros of this book: The characters were believable and I could easily connect with them. The story line and plot was easy to follow and left you wanting to know what happens next. The only con that I can think of is that the book is a little predictable but still has some twists and turns that you don’t expect.
Overall, if you love mysteries this is one that you will want to read. I can’t wait to read more books by this author.
This book was provided to me at no cost by Waterbrook/Multnomah for an honest review.
