"Is it murder or suicide?"

Fresh Fiction Review

Dark Fissures
Matt Coyle

Reviewed by Sharon Salituro

Mystery Private Eye | Thriller

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 finds, shocks 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?

Matt Coyle has become one of my favorites when it comes to suspense and mystery. I have said this before, but he is right up there with James Patterson. I can't wait to read one of his books when they come out. DARK FISSURES was great.

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 impatiently for the next one I just wish there wasn't so much time in between them.

Private Investigator Rick Cahill fears the next knock on his door will be a cop holding a warrant for his arrest. For murder. La Jolla Chief of Police Tony Moretti is convinced Rick killed a missing person. No body has been found, but the evidence that’s piling up says murder and it all points to Rick. With Moretti on his tail and the bank about to foreclose on his house, Rick takes a paying case that will stave off the bank, but pits him against Moretti and the La Jolla Police Department.

Brianne Colton, a beautiful country singer, is convinced her estranged husband’s suicide was really murder. Rick is unconvinced, but the mortgage has to be paid. Each new piece of evidence convinces him she’s right. He breaks his number one rule and falls for Brianne even, as he begins to question her motives.

As Moretti cinches the vise tighter, with Rick unable to trust the FBI, evil forces emerge from the shadows who will do anything, including torture and murder, to stop Rick from uncovering the truth.
