Clean Win


Clean Win (A Sam Quinton Mystery Book 4)Clean Win by Kevin R. Doyle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read by Kevin Doyle. I most certainly don’t know why I haven’t read more. I had even put a couple of them on my TBR list but hadn’t gotten around to reading them. I should have been reading his Sam Quinton mysteries long ago.

This is just the sort of P.I. mystery story I like. I really enjoy a story where the cops (or at least some of them) can get along with a private investigator, even engage their help. I’m very tired of the P.I. who gets beat up or threatened by the cops all the time. Sam was a pro-wrestler before, called the Blond Bomber. Sounds hilarious, but it sure works as a character. I like his sarcastic, smart-ass, remarks and attitude. Maybe I can relate to him :) This time Detective Santiago contacts Sam about a very delicate problem. The murder wasn’t delicate, but the possible suspect could be a touchy subject.

This is one of those stories that catch you from the beginning. I’m not even sure how to describe what I mean. Is it the writing or is it the story? Whatever the snare was, it worked. This is one I rarely put down.

I must say I did find some errors here. Only a few compared to most books nowadays. Odd what we accept anymore. But the few typos or wrong words I did find were not enough to interrupt my reading flow, and I’m picky. If not for the number of errors, I would give this 5 stars. It is really a good story. I recommend it. Jump over the errors and read.
