"Reason To Live" by Matthew Iden was a very good 'riveting and entertaining' detective mystery read from the start until its finish. This is the first in 'The Marty Singer Detective Series' and it will keep you on the edge of your seat guessing what was coming next. I found "A Reason To Live" well written by the author at a fast pace with lots of twist and turns with many surprises. I find that "A Reason To Live" will keep it all alive for you with stakeouts,
shootouts and along with 'chemo treatments.' Now, what is that all about...We find Marty Singer from Virginia, has recently retired as a policeman who is now battling cancer, when " A murder victim’s daughter comes to him worried she’s being targeted by the same man who killed her mother twelve years earlier. "It soon becomes apparent that someone is stalking Amanda...was this the same stalker that had stalked her mother? This was a old case where a former colleague of Marty's got away with murder, literally, and now seems to have returned to claim another victim. Now, this is where I say you must pick up the excellent read to find out what all this author has in store for the reader. You will find it a very intriguing mystery with some well developed and captivating
characters that in the end will gave you a satisfied ending. You will soon see Marty's struggle with "cancer, and the requisite rounds of chemo, bring another layer of humanity to the retired ex-cop archetype." Would I recommend "A Reason to Live"...YES!
