The Corruptible by Mark Mynheir is the second book in the Ray Quinn Mystery Series. It is the story of Ray Quinn, former detective turned private investigator, as he tries to solve the case of his current client. The man he is searching for turns up dead, but the stolen property he possessed is nowhere to be found. In an attempt to find  the stolen property, Quinn comes in contact with a list of unsavory characters. But which ones, if any, are involved in the death and removal of the stolen property?

This book, while not a can’t put down type of read, was still enjoyable. The story was engaging  using power, money, a slew of criminal characters and an interesting sidekick named Crevis to hold the attention of the reader. There were never any dull spots in the book, at the same time there never seemed to be to many really gripping the moments that had me eagerly waiting to turn the page. Character development was lacking on some of the minor characters who played major roles in the book. The ending had me  guessing until the very end, but lacked the satisfying climax I had hoped for. As far as being in the christian market, this book contains only passing references to anything christian. It seemed to be setting up the possibility of bigger presence of a christian character further into the series. I hope this is the case. While I would not rate this book as great, I would say that is was good.

*I received this book free for review from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing.
