Rick is a private investigator and down on his
luck. The police department has been after him as the
prime suspect in his wife's murder, so every chance
they get, they pull him over.
Brianne is not sure that her husband killed himself.
Even though they were separated Brianne still feels that
he would never take his own life. Brianne wants to hire
Rick to investigate his murder but he doesn't want to
take this case as he knows that he will have to deal with
the La Jolla police chief.
Nevertheless, Rick does take on this case, and what he
him. Jim was about to release some very damaging
evidence that he has found so Rick still is not sure if
it was murder or suicide. A lot of the clues lead to
murder, but why? In the mist of all of his digging, he
also finds that he is very attracted to Brianne. Rick
knows this is not a great move to make, but he does.
Why is it that all of Jim's friends hate Brianne, and why
are they all keeping secrets about what they know about?

read one of his books when they come out. DARK FISSURES was
There are so many characters in DARK FISSURES but I was
not confused about who was who. I also enjoyed the fact
that Coyle carries previous stories into his books. We are
still trying to figure out what really happened to Rick's
wife. Who really murder her? I am sure in one of Matt's
books, we will finally find out who done it. Waiting
the next one I just wish there wasn't so much time in between
