Book Review: The Corruptible

By: Mark Mynheir

When I choose this book to review it looked like something my husband would really love to read. He loves all those crazy mysteries and thought this would be something fun for us to read together. Little did I know that this was the second book in the series! I really would have liked to have known that when I was reading the description, so I was a bit disappointed when I found this out. The first book if you're curious is The Night Watchman (Ray Quinn Series, Book 1).

I will say that the back story was really easy to pick up as you were reading along with this book and honestly you wouldn't have to go back and read the first one if you didn't want to. I'm just the type of person who prefers to read from the beginning and not in the middle :).

It is about a dirty ex cop accused of stealing corporate secrets and is found dead in a motel. Ray Quinn is also an ex cop and his former colleague is hired by the corporation to find the secrets and in turn ends up investigating the death in the motel. Its an okay story with lots of suspects and police procedure. Not exactly what my husband and I were looking for in a mystery. Maybe for someone else this would be a great book but for us it was just so so. I honestly probably wouldn't really recommend this to many of my friends and family who enjoy a good mystery.
