The Corruptible

The Corruptible by Mark Mynheir is the second Ray Quinn Mystery, following the publication of the Night Watchman. In this second novel, Ray Quinn is struggling to make ends meet as a private investigator. He never expected he would be cornered in a bathroom stall by the very angry, unfaithful husband of a client. As a retired policeman and still recovering from a debilitating injury, Ray does not have a lot of career choices.

When a new client comes offering huge sums of money for Ray's investigative talent, Ray finds himself with a easy looking job and a lot of needed cash. He is supposed to find Logan Ramsey, an ex bad cop turned security officer who has disappeared with confidential corporate information. However, the job quickly turns south when Logan is found murdered in a seedy motel room. Ray finds himself without the information he needs, and a client who is hiding something. Suddenly it is hard to tell the difference between the bad guys and the good guys. Who will Ray choose?

The Corruptible was a very enjoyable mystery filled with suspense and intrigue. Ray Quinn is not a Christian throughout most of the book, but he has a very close friend who is constantly sharing the love of God and being there for Ray. His friend Pam is a very good witness, and their struggles to talk about God really reveal a lot about witnessing and about some issues non believers have toward God. The mystery of the book was well done, and the characters were interesting and realistic. I enjoyed this novel immensely, and I look forward to reading some of Ray Mynheir's other books.
