Review: Rejection by Thomas K. Matthews


Rejection - A Lou Drake Mystery

Book Description

January 16, 2011
Lou Drake was once the pride of the NYPD detectives until the high profile Hennings murder case went terribly wrong, nearly ending his career. Ten years later, fifty pounds heavier and three months from retirement, Drake works patrol in the backwater borough of Malcolm New York. He spends his idle time reading crime novels and writing one of his own. When Drake breaks protocol on another brutal murder scene, endangering his rookie partner, his captain demotes him to the booking cage. But when another body is discovered and both victims are identified as struggling literary agents, the NYPD Chief of Detectives decides Lou's writing experience could benefit the case and pairs him with his old partner one last time. As they look for clues in the struggling publishing industry, Drake finds himself thrust into the middle of a serial murder case where a methodical perpetrator is systematically killing those who rejected him. Drake must revive his old detective prowess and trust his writer's intuition to try and solve the case, while possibly exposing the truth about the old Hennings investigation - a secret that would expose a web of corruption that could shake the NYPD to 
its core. Ages 18 + Mystery






I could not put this book down!  I read it in two sittings.  What a roller coaster ride – a ride of murder, mystery and lots of suspense.  I fell in love with Lou Drake (the main character).  He is just trying to retire as a cop.  He takes life in stride and just keeps pursuing his dreams of being an author – even though there are stalls along the way.  I give this book a 5 star rating as it had a great plot, great characters, awesome details and a fantastic ending.  I loved that the back stories of all the characters were filled in and you had no questions remaining when you finished the book.  Awesome thriller!!
