Description

A sinister private detective agency, a shady shell corporation, and a dead friend—Rick Cahill is on his most dangerous mission yet

Private investigator Rick Cahill has been running from his past and chasing the truth his whole life. But his past is relentless—and so is his CTE, a disease caused by repeated head traumas that has attacked his body and his mind. As his CTE progresses, he realizes that the disease not only threatens his life but also endangers his family’s wellbeing.

As Rick struggles to keep his family together, he does a favor for Sara Bhandari, a business contact. Then, Sara is murdered, and the police believe her to be yet another victim of a serial rapist who has been terrorizing greater San Diego. But Rick has reason to question their theory. Determined to find the truth at any cost, and against his wife’s warnings, he investigates on his own.

Along the way, he bumps up against a sinister private investigative agency and a shady shell corporation that may be hiding more than company secrets. As Rick digs for the truth about Sara’s death, he risks his own life and the lives of countless innocents caught in his relentless crusade. Ultimately, Rick must decide if his quest is worth the risk of losing his family forever.

Perfect for fans of Michael Connelly and John Sandford

Advance Praise

Praise for the Rick Cahill PI Crime Series

* “Rick Cahill’s extreme physical and emotional vulnerability is on full display in Shamus Award-winner Coyle’s superior eighth outing [Last Redemption] . . . Contemporary hard-boiled PI novels don’t get any better than this.” —Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

“[Blind Vigil is] a tense, fast-paced, hard-boiled mystery told in a clear, unadorned style.” —ABC News

“With Wrong Light, Matt Coyle is on top of his game and Rick Cahill ascends to the top ranks of the classic private eyes. Coyle knows the secret: digging into a crime means digging into the past. Sometimes it’s messy, sometimes it’s dangerous—always it’s entertaining. You’ll find all of that and more in this great read.” —Michael Connelly, New York Times best-selling author

“The ending is a symphony of rage and violence—and some darned good one-liners.” —Booklist

“Matt Coyle knocks it out of the park with Last Redemption. Just when you think Coyle has reached the top of his game—he does one better.” —Allison Brennan, New York Times best-selling author

“Matt Coyle is one of the finest PI authors in the business. Last Redemption proves it. Superb!” —Bruce Robert Coffin, award-winning author of the Detective Byron Mysteries

“[Blind Vigil is] emotionally wrenching and haunting . . . a visceral tour de force of the PI tradition.” —T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times best-selling author

Last Redemption deserves more stars than has the Hollywood Walk of Fame.” —Bookreporter

“Sharp, suspenseful, and poignant, Lost Tomorrows hits like a breaking wave and pulls readers into its relentless undertow. Matt Coyle is at the top of his game.” —Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award-winning author

“Award-winning Matt Coyle has done it again. This series is a must-read for me. He’s at the top of his game with Doomed Legacy—a great, fast-paced story, full of danger and surprise.” —Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine

"Blind Vigil is a masterful blend of hard-boiled, noirish, slow-burning, yet fast-paced storytelling, proving—once again—that Matt Coyle has earned his place as one of the great authors of classic PI fiction.” —Robin Burcell, New York Times best-selling author

“An equation involving everyone from the Russian mob to Irish Travelers to ex-cops, Coyle’s Wrong Light is a fascinating, fast-paced, spidery-webbed novel.” —Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times best-selling author

“[Lost Tomorrows is] suspenseful, tightly written, full of curve balls and memorable characters and very, very smart. Welcome back, Rick. We're really glad to see you.” —Joe Ide, Shamus Award-winning author

“Part pacy thriller and part fair-play puzzle, Wrong Light delivers . . . Coyle honors the gumshoe tradition but confounds expectations; he both celebrates and laments masculinity; and he writes with respect of the price his hero pays for the life he lives.” —Catriona McPherson, Macavity, Agatha, and Mary Higgins Clark Award-winning author

“Readers will root for Rick Cahill, hard-boiled PI and one-man wrecking ball, as he searches for the truth about his police officer father in Blood Truth.” —Hallie Ephron, New York Times best-selling author
