The Corruptible is the second book in a series about cop-turned-private-investigator Ray Quinn. Now, if I had noticed it was the second book in a series at the time I was choosing a book to review (I received The Corruptible for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review), I would not have selected it. I did not read the first, and have a fairly hard-and-fast rule about not going out of order in a series if I can at all help it, because I don’t like feeling like I’m missing ...more

Ray Quinn, currently a Private Investigator, is an ex-homicide detective formerly with the Orlando Police Department. He retired from the OPD after being shot in the leg while tracking down a murderer. Now he has to rely on a cane and a bottle of Jim Beam to get him through the pain everyday. In addition to his friends on the force, his support staff consists of his partner-in-training, Crevis, who provides the muscle, while learning the ropes. Also, helping is Pam Winters, whose murdered brothe ...more

In "investigating" this book 2 in the Ray Quinn series, I came across a comment by the author that this is the last book in the Quinn series. So thankful that I could go in to this preparing myself for the series to end. Otherwise, I might be more bereft than I already am. :) I loved book one and loved this book two/too. Frankly, from the ending, I would have thought Mynheir had set the perfect framework for a third book, so I am glad to have been forewarned.

A sequel that lives up to the first!

After a rough tumble in a men's bathroom, Ray gets an offer from Mayer Holdings to find some information that Logan, a former employee & "bad cop" stole.

What do you get when you combine a Christian Marine with a SWAT Cop with a Dyslexic Detective?
Answer: One multifaceted author.

A story more engaging than The Corruptible is that of the life of its author. If you plan on reading anything by Mark Mynheir, it’s worth taking a trip to his website at http://www.copwriter.com.

That being said, lets take a look at The Corruptible – The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

If you haven't already heard, Mark Mynheir author of The Watchman has written a new Ray Quinn Mystery Novel. And although this is an excellent follow-up to The Night Watchman, make no mistakes about it; The Corruptible truly stands fully on its own, as a first rate detective novel from a real detective.
 
In The Corruptible, we find Ray Quinn an ex-Orlando Police Department-homicide detective being hired by, Armon Mayer, a Germophobic and the wealthy head of an investment firm - to recover a 30

This is not typically the genre book I normally seek out - it is more of a "man's book." I do enjoy a good mystery, though, so that aspect grabbed me at the start. And yet, from the get-go, the author, Mark Mynheir, cloaks the Protagonist, Private Investigator Ray Quinn, with crisp dialogue that marks him as a former policeman, narcotics and homicide cop, and member of the elite group of defenders of society. They live in a world vastly different from law abiding citizens. They rub shoulders wit ...more

First off, let me start by saying that Orlando, Florida is less than an hour away from where I currently live, and I thought it was really cool that I recognized some of the street names and places that were mentioned in the book. That made it easier for me to connect with the story on an even more personal level, because it was close to home, so to speak.

This is the first book I have read by Mr. Mynheir, and you can be sure that it will not be the last. The characters and storyline were realist

I've made the decision to just read books written by men for a while. No ooey-gooey romance. I want my conflict to be more than just "should I go out with this guy or not?" or "should I tell him that I love him?" As horrid as this sounds, I want murder. I want lying. I want mystery. I want crime solving or legal dilemmas. I want the male leads to not be the kind of guys you melt over.

Ray Quinn is far from dreamy. He drinks too much. He only watches movies starring John Wayne. He's extremely sar

I knew this book would be interesting when it started out with Ray Quinn, ex-homicide detective in trouble in the bathroom, and its not what you would think! He is trying to hide from a former client’s husband that is not happy with how he handled the former case. As he stands on the ‘throne’ to keep his feet from being seen, he sends a text message to partner Crevis that he was in trouble. Crevis makes it in there just in time, and just as always, saves Ray’s back. Oh! an

I love all book genres which involve solving crimes: Romantic Suspense, Cozy Mysteries, Police Procedurals, Private Detective Novels. So it’s been great to discover that more and more Christian authors are delving into this area to provide top-notch mysteries enhanced by deeper faith messages. One such author is Mark Mynheir, who writes the Ray Quinn mysteries. Have you heard of Ray Quinn?

If you’re drawn to an angst-filled hero who hides his heart of gold behind wise cracks and a tough demeanor,

"The Corruptible" by Mark Mynheir is easily one of the best "thriller" novels this year. Admittedly, it started off a bit slow but once the plot began to thicken I was entranced. The characters are highly likable and the plot has more twists and plot turns than a Patterson novel.

The story follows Ray, a retired Orlando police officer turned private investigator, as he tries to solve a case involving a stolen hard drive. Ray takes on the powerful Armon as a client and tries to locate some "highly

Well, I wrote one review for this and lost it when I hit the button to post, so I'm afraid this one probably won't be as good. But I really enjoyed this book, mostly because the main character Ray Quinn was just the kind of damaged character I most like. Ray was a homicide detective who was injured in the line of duty and forced to retire. He then became a private investigator and joined up with a young man who just wants to learn enough to join the police force.

I really struggled with this book. I love a good crime novel, throw in some forensics and a good mystery and it makes for an enjoyable afternoon of reading in the rain. 3 weeks in I'm still struggling and think I have finally given up the ghost.

The Corruptible opens with the death of a dirty cop that no one trusted and Ray Quinn taking the job of finding a briefcase that Armon Mayer has hired him to find. The fact that Logan Ramsey (said dirty cop) was a former co-worker & cop only makes him

This writer likes words, and he admires his characters, with all their foibles, uncertainties and flaws. Consequently, this book is refreshing and a pleasure.

The characters were well developed, warts and all, including confronting alcoholism, questioning religion, and missing old loves, while simultaneously catching the bad guys. I lived with them for awhile, got to know them - not just a cleverly worded caricature of them - and, thus, when I finished the book, I missed them just a little. That'

The Corruptible, written by ‘copwriter’ Mark Mynheir, is a lovely detective-story about private investigator Ray Quinn, a former homicide detective. Ray Quinn is assisted by Crevis, who had a bad childhood and currently is studying for a written test for the police academy. Because he is dyslectic and had little education when he was a child, it is hard on him. He is grateful for the help of Pam Winters, the sister of the victim in Nightwatchman (The Corruptible is a sequel to The Night Watchman ...more

Old-fashioned gumshoe detective stories are really things of the past. Modern stories are all CSI-ish with crime labs and fingerprints and all that technological stuff that makes solving a crime really hard for the average reader. Not so with this story. It is a throwback to the good, old days of Raymond Chandler and other masters of the art of sleuthing.

The story centers around Ray, who used to be a cop. An injury from a gunshot wound has him off the force and making other plans for a living an

“The Corruptible” is part of the Ray Quinn series by Mark Mynheir, and the hero, PI Raymond Quinn, nursing a bum leg, bears a striking resemblance to another PI—Colton Parker, whose four-book series is authored by Brandt Dodson.

Like Colton, Ray is not a believer but has believers close to him; in Colton’s case, it’s a FBI agent and in Ray’s case it’s Pamela, who is aiding Ray’s partner Crevis with some basic education; Crevis wants to eventually apply to the police academy but is apparently dysl
