The Corruptible

Finished April 3
The Corruptible by Mark Mynheir
This is the second book in the series featuring Ray Quinn, a former homicide detective now working as a private investigator. I'd read the first in the series, The Night Watchman, and enjoyed it, so when I got this advance copy from Library Journal, I knew I'd want to read it.
Ray has been doing a lot of domestic work lately and getting tired of it, so when he is approached by the wealthy owner of an investment firm to find the security man who has apparently taken off with sensitive information, he is intrigued. The large fee intrigues him further. The security officer, Logan Ramsey, is an ex-detective too, and Ray knew him, so he is off to a good start.
Ray has unique access to the police as a consultant for them, and this access gets him directly involved in a murder case when Ramsey turns up dead. Ray usually trusts his instincts, but even he can be fooled sometimes.
Ray is an interesting character, and this story was well-plotted. I could guess some of it before it was laid out for me, but that didn't detract from the good story. Ray shows some growth personally, and so does his sidekick.
