A sinister private detective agency, a shady shell corporation, and a dead friend—Rick Cahill is on his most dangerous mission yet
Private investigator Rick Cahill has been running from his past and chasing the truth his whole life. But his past is relentless—and so is his CTE, a disease caused by repeated head traumas that has attacked his body and his mind. As his CTE progresses, he realizes that the disease not only threatens his life but also endangers his family’s wellbeing.
As Rick struggles to keep his family together, he does a favor for Sara Bhandari, a business contact. Then, Sara is murdered, and the police believe her to be yet another victim of a serial rapist who has been terrorizing greater San Diego. But Rick has reason to question their theory. Determined to find the truth at any cost, and against his wife’s warnings, he investigates on his own.
Along the way, he bumps up against a sinister private investigative agency and a shady shell corporation that may be hiding more than company secrets. As Rick digs for the truth about Sara’s death, he risks his own life and the lives of countless innocents caught in his relentless crusade. Ultimately, Rick must decide if his quest is worth the risk of losing his family forever.
Perfect for fans of Michael Connelly and John Sandford
In 2013 author Matt Coyle introduced us to Rick Cahill, disgraced ex-cop, with a murdered wife with all fingers pointing to him as the killer. Through 8 books we have watched over Rick's shoulder as his life becomes something to write about!
Last night I read the 9th book in the series, DOOMED LEGACY. It opens with Cahill facing down an internal rage caused by CTE, a progressive brain condition that's caused by repeated blows to the head and repeated episodes of concussion.
As his wife and new child flee to Santa Barbara, Rick reluctantly goes back to work, investigating-doing background checks on prospective new hires for his client company. Rick meets with a business associate, Sara Bhandari, his contact in the human resources department for a defense contractor who suspects something is amiss at work.
A few days later Rick goes to Sara's house because she has been unreachable by phone or email. He discovers Sara's mutilated body. Police believe she is the victim of a serial rapist, but Rick's gut tells him that there is something far more sinister at work.
Rick digs deep into the people and events around Sara and the client's company, and risks his life and family to bring the truth into the light of day.
I highly recommend DOOMED LEGACY, and all of Coyle's previous Rick Cahill mysteries.
