Thriller Book Review: “A Reason To Live” By Matthew Iden

Matthew Iden writes fantasy, science fiction, horror, thrillers and contemporary literary fiction with a psychological twist. A Reason to Live is his debut work in the world of crime fiction.

A Brief Summary:

In the late nineties, a bad cop killed a good woman and DC Homicide detective Marty Singer got to watch as the murderer walked out of the courtroom a free man. Twelve years later, the victim’s daughter comes to Marty begging for help: the killer is stalking her now. There’s just one problem: Marty’s retired…and he’s retired because he’s battling cancer. But with a second shot at the killer–and a first chance at redemption–Marty’s just found A Reason To Live.

Our Take:

If you are looking for an entertaining book which keeps you turning the pages, this debut work is for you: Although we didn’t find the story very original, we think this is an impressive debut work with an interesting lead character. Mart Singer is a lovable, gritty, smart and sarcastic person with an incredible passion to make the wrongs right.

We are looking forward to reading more from this author.
