Reviews Blood Truth

    I was provided this ARC compliments of NetGalley. My appreciation sent to Oceanside Publishing for making this available. An unbiased review of this narrative follows.The author, in his usual style, charged forward, full speed ahead in this fourth installment of the Rick Cahill series. The narrative of this unfortunate, sad sack's self-destructive life continued to spiral downward with non-stop action. The protagonist continued to insert himself ...

    What I really like in the Rick Cahill Series , is a perfect pace of the plot. The author knows EXACTLY how to keep your attention: melancholic quite parts alternate with pure actions at a dizzying speed. It is why I recommend you not to start this book late in the evening if you have a list to do on the next early morning – there is a high risk that you'll stay awake and read the whole night through.And what I REALLY love is of course – the m...

    Definately a must read. Received the book as an arc from netgalley for an honest review. Trying to solve a cold case is not an easy task.
  • Maddie Margarita
    BLOOD TRUTH is hard boiled California noir served over easy. Author Matt Coyle saddles disgraced ex-cop turned P.I. Rick Cahill with more than enough tragedy to sustain him through brief moments of joy (okay a Yeats rip-off here.) Unintentionally heroic and emotionally stunted –especially when it comes to relationships – Rick struggles under the weight of his failures and those of his father before him. So, when evidence surfaces that makes h...

    Read on Netgalley. Rick Cahill PI receives a call from a man who has torn down the house where Rick grew up and found a safe in the wall. Rick goes to pick it up and has an old .25 pistol and $15,000 in hundred dollar bills. There is a safe deposit box key also and so the mystery begins. All of this has something to do with his dad's leaving the La Joya PD 28 years ago and a still unsolved murder from that time. About the same time he is hired by...

    “Blood Truth” by Matt Coyle is part of the Rick Cahill series, but it is not necessary to have read the previous books to absolutely love this one. Any background information a new reader might need is included as part of the narrative without spending pages and pages unnecessarily rehashing the previous books. Rick Cahill is a former police officer turned PI who is haunted by his past. Coyle takes us inside Rick Cahill’s head as he tries t...

    Author Matt Coyle knows how to write suspense well. At its center, this book is the story of a father and son, but it's also a mystery that takes many of the classic elements associated with this genre and transports them to a contemporary place.What worked best for me about Blood Truth is Coyle's use of first-person to build the tension in the story. We get to know this character (Rick Cahill) very well, and we get to know precisely what he is t...

    Rick Cahill, PI, is a man on a precipice, held there by the past, reluctant to meet his future, a man resigned to living day-by-day but champing at the bit to be free of ugly rumors and a dark past. Once again, trouble lands in Cahill's lap. A cop from his old PD is the latest victim. Suicide, say the cops. No way, says his sexy widow. Cahill is hired to prove or disprove--and he'll do almost anything for a pretty lady. Author Matt Coyle's writin...
  • Jay Williams
    Rick Cahill's on-going struggles with the La Jolla Police Department, his ex-wife, his former girlfriend and a PI colleague add sparkles of interest to a case that begins with a simple request to check up on his former girlfriend's husband and grows to a conflagration of murders, bribes, treachery, and elements of Rick's father's past problems. The style of writing is clear and follows a distinct timeline. The characters are unique and developed ...

    How have I missed Matt Coyle??? Blood Truth was a fantastic read, full of crime and investigative twists and turns and for a newbie to the Rick Cahill saga, fully followable. Looks like I have a new author to get well and truly stuck into, I could not be happier!This was a Netgalley ARC copy but the review is all MINE!
  • Diane Plant
    Thanks to the publisher for the chance to read and review this book.An excellent book. Just where do these authors go to find the plots they put into their stories. This one led me from the past and running along with the now and back and forward and not losing me along the way. Very entertaining and readable.

    “Blood Truth” by Matt Coyle is part of the Rick Cahill series but I don't feel like the other books in the series are a requirement before you read this one. This was my first book by Matt Coyle and I didn't feel like I missed any of the backstory by reading it out of order.The first person narration of Rick Cahill allows the reader to see his thought processes and become intimately acquainted with his emotions. The twist and turns of the plo...

    Book 4 of the Rick Cahill series finds the hard-boiled PI coming to turn with his father’s truth. While this story is a deep look into his protagonist’s emotional depth, Coyle does not disappoint those readers wanting a tough, intriguing plot. In fact, Cahill’s father’s history comes back to bite Cahill—so he thinks, only to find that we are never far from those who brought us into the world. Not sure what that means? Read Blood Truth i...
