The Night Watchman by Mark Mynheir(AND GIVEAWAY)

***Leave a comment to be entered to win a copy. Deadline is Monday June 1 at midnight.***

Back Cover:
Eleven months ago, Ray Quinn was a tough, quick-witted Orlando homicide detective at the top of his game–until a barrage of bullets ended his career…and his partner’s life.

Now medically retired with a painful handicap, Ray battles the haunting guilt for his partner’s death. Numbing the pain with alcohol and attitude, Ray takes a job as a night watchman at a swanky Orlando condo.

But when a pastor and an exotic dancer are found dead in one of the condos in an apparent murder-suicide, Ray can no longer linger in the shadows. The pastor’s sister is convinced her brother was framed and begs Ray to take on an impossible case–to challenge the evidence and clear her brother’s name.

Ray reluctantly pulls the threads of this supposedly dead-end case only to unravel a murder investigation so deep that it threatens to turn the Orlando political landscape upside down and transform old friends into new enemies. As Ray chases down leads and interrogates suspects, someone is watching his every move, someone determined to keep him from ever finding out the truth–at any cost.

My Review:
I loved this book. It is a great mystery/suspense book. One of the best well written I have read all year. The author's personal experiences make the story. The characters and plot are interesting. I was drawn in from the first page and held until the end. I look forward to reading more books featuring Ex Detective Ray Quinn. Highly Recommended. :)
