I just completed the book, The Corruptible, written by Mark Mynheir. This book follows The Night Watchman, both of which make up his Ray Quinn mystery series. This book was everything that I love in a book! Great characters and suspense. Dry sense of humor and law enforcement. A main character, who though not a Christian yet, you feel very likely to later become one. It always greatly enhances my reading experience when the author writes from his personal experience. Mynheir has worked as an undercover narcotic agent, on a SWAT team and as a detective - all details which appear in The Corruptible. Good stuff.
The book centers around the main character, Ray Quinn. Quinn is a former police officer and martial artist. He has since become physically handicapped and is trying his hand at being a detective. He is offered a potentially highly lucrative job, which he accepts. Things quickly go awry, however. The characters are well developed and the story line moves quickly along to an exciting conclusion. I am DEFINITLY going to read his earlier, The Night Watchman and look forward to his works to come!
I received a complementary copy of The Corruptible, from waterbrookmultnomah.com for reveiw. The opinions are my own.
