I was lucky enough to win a copy of LOST TOMORROWS by Matt Coyle. This is version 6 of the RICK CAHILL detective series. I am not particularly drawn to the who done it detective format but this book is very good following the basic format. I really like the first person telling of the story from start to finish. This lends a more interesting take to the story by adding thoughts, insight and sarcasm at certain points in the book. I liked Coyles use of this throughout the story.

Finally. In a tense, emotional , and suspense filled story, Rick Cahill discovers who killed his wife years earlier. Part of me is excited and grateful for an end to this long running mystery.... while another part of me is sad to see the conclusion to this storyline. I've developed a love of this character and these books and I certainly hope it's not the last we see of Rick. A good book ALWAYS affects you emotionally, and this one definitely has. Thank you Matt for creating such an interesting ...more

The police in Santa Barbara think he murdered his wife. They hate him. Cahill has long since become a private eye but still lives with a deep, self-sabotaging blackness and feelings of ...more

“Lost Tomorrows” by Matt Coyle is a continuation of former cop Rick Cahill’s troubled journey. New readers will immediately become immersed in the story because most background events took place before regular readers met Cahill for the first time in “Yesterday’s Echo.” Coyle expertly pulls readers into Cahill’s previously unknown past with news about an acquaintance from Santa Barbara, and this person, like many in Cahill’s life, is dead.

Coyle’s solid narrative presents the Rick Cahill readers

Readers who have enjoyed the previous books in this series will not be disappointed. New readers will be hooked and go back to read the series from the beginning. After years of Cahill's search, will we finally know who killed Cahill's wife many years ago? Was the recent hit and run death of his former partner really an accident? Are the two deaths connected? If you're a Cahill fan, this is a must read. Highly recommend.

Lost Tomorrows by Matt Coyle Rick Cahill is a flawed, stubborn but likeable character. In this fast paced, action filled, emotionally charged suspense novel, he finally finds out the identity his wife's killer. After the 14 year mystery is solved is this possible end of the series?

Thank you to the publisher, author, and NetGalley for the opportunity to preview the book.
Rick Cahill is accused of murdering his wife 14 years ago. Revealing his alibi cost him his job on the police force. Now when another women in his past is murdered; Rick knows these two crimes are connected. I was not a fan of Rick with his goal of vengeance. His clue following left much to be desired. Wonder if this is the end of the series? "A copy of this book was provided by Oceanview Publishing via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

Lost Tomorrows by Matt Coyle is a highly recommended noir whodunit featuring a troubled private investigator and the sixth book in the series.

San Diego P. I. Rick Cahill receives a phone call learning that his former partner on the Santa Barbara Police Department, Krista Landingham, is dead. When Rick goes to the funeral, his past is ever present and thrust into his face by the officers attending the funeral. His wife, Colleen, was murdered in the city and Rick was considered guilty by the
“What kind of a man are you?”

That is the question posed to Rick Cahill after he’s forced to serve notice of a custody lawsuit to his acquaintance, Irene. Serving papers is just a way for Rick — a former police officer-turned-private investigator — to pay his rent, but Irene’s piercing question haunts him throughout the tumultuous events that unfold soon after.

Lost Tomorrows (Oceanview Publishing) is the sixth novel in the Rick Cahill series by Matt Coyle. The series follows Rick, a promising

I just finished reading this ARC that I received through a Goodreads Giveaway. It was published yesterday. This is a new author for me and it's book #6 in the Rick Cahill series. It works well as a standalone read but I imagine it would be even richer if you started with book #1.
This is a fast paced mystery that features a hard boiled, down on his luck PI. Rick receives a phone call that draws him back to Santa Barbara where he began and ended his short police career, a place

What happens to a man's humanity when he thinks he's lost everything? Does he take justice into his own hands, becoming judge and jury, or does he allow a little doubt to slow the path to self-destruction? These are the questions that came to me when reading this new mystery/thriller novel. The main character is obviously flawed but he's still likeable. The closer to the end I got the more I wanted him to consider other options. You'll have to read this one to find out if that's possible.

I received this book a a goodreads giveaway. I did not read the previous books and didn't have trouble following along with this book. I really enjoyed it and will be reading the previous books in the series. The characters are likable even thought you may disagree with them at times. It was an interest and fast-paced read, and you go through different emotions while you read.

In book six in his Rick Cahill series, Matt Coyle offers another mystery that intrigues the reader not only because of Coyle’s insightful themes which tie the meaning of the story together but because Coyle continues to offer his main character Rick Cahill—not as another fictional character—but a memorable person. Say Rick Cahill, and an image is produced as if met.
Noir at its best.

A good mystery but not my favorite book. I expected more of a thriller. However, I thought the development of the characters and storyline was well done. 3 1/2 stars.
