A good plot could have been a better novel

Ex-homicide detective turned private investigator Ray Quinn is receives an overly generous retainer to find an ex-cop turned security guard who disappeared with some very sensitive company information.  Unfortunately, Ray doesn’t ask enough questions and his client is secretive about important details and somehow the truth becomes hazy and it doesn’t take long for Ray to discover that everyone involved is hiding something.

This is the second Ray Quinn mystery, but you don’t have to read the first one to catch up with the story.   However, even though the plot is creative and entertaining and the author did manage to hold my attention to the story, it was easy to solve the crime.  There is very little suspense.   Even so, it’s a great summer read, and with a little more practice, Mark Mynher could become a good writer.  Ray Quinn is a character which has great potential if he can overcome his drinking problem and find better ways to deal with his painful disability and emotional problems.
