Publisher's Summary

Private Investigator Rick Cahill fears the next knock on his door will be a cop holding a warrant for his arrest. For murder. La Jolla Chief of Police Tony Moretti is convinced Rick killed a missing person. No body has been found, but the evidence that's piling up says murder and it all points to Rick. With Moretti on his tail and the bank about to foreclose on his house, Rick takes a paying case that will stave off the bank, but pits him against Moretti and the La Jolla Police Department.
Brianne Colton, a beautiful country singer, is convinced her estranged husband's suicide was really murder. Rick is unconvinced, but the mortgage has to be paid. Each new piece of evidence convinces him she's right. He breaks his number one rule and falls for Brianne, even as he begins to question her motives.
As Moretti cinches the vise tighter, with Rick unable to trust the FBI, evil forces emerge from the shadows who will do anything, including torture and murder, to stop Rick from uncovering the truth.

Great book, with great narration!

This is first book by Matt Coyle book I've listened to and the first narration by Baldree I have experienced as well. The story is very well written. I enjoyed the characters and I was sad when the book came to the end. I can't wait for the next book in the series (this is the 3rd book). Baldree is a wonderful narrator! He has fantastic tone & expression and I practically listened to the book in one day because I was so engaged in the story. Baldree has made it into my top narrators list. He was able to distinguish the voices of characters better than most. Most of his female voices sounded very similar but his male characters were all distinct. I hope the next book will be read by him also. Dark Fissures is well worth a credit! 👍

Great dark character

Any additional comments?

Great old fashioned detective tale in modern times. An antihero with a good heart just trying to get through a blacklisted life. There are many instances where the narrator added to the overall feel of the story. An audiobook well done. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

You must be Mr.Cahill?

Rick used to be a cop, like his dad. And, like his dad, he was kicked out. He is not on good terms with the local force. In fact, the Their thinks him guilty of murder and is hoping very hard that he'll soon be able to prove it. Without any work, apart from a bit of part time bar work, he's constantly harrased by the police for minor traffic infringements and the bills are piling up. Looks like the bank will be foreclosing on his house pretty soon. Then he'll be homeless, too.
Then along comes a possible paying customer. Her husband died fairly recently and the hanging was labelled as a suicide. But his estranged wife is convinced that he was killed. Is this because the suicide clause will stop her from inheriting his very sizable life insurance unless the verdict is changed? Or was the man really murdered? Rick wants to believe the latter because, after all, he can't seem to get the attractive country singer wife out of his head and the man had been a cop in the same force now hasstling him: he'd believe almost anything of that bunch. But what was really intriguing was that the dead man, an ex SEAL, had phoned the FBI only days before he died.
Still undecided, he takes an advance on work for one week - he really does need that money badly, - and starts to investigate, fall for the ex wife and try to avoid being arrested for murder himself. All, more or less, in a days work for Rick Cahill.

An enjoyable story with good characterisation of Rick himself and interesting.confrontational moments with others. But the story just didn't quite work for this reader: it was both predictable and too muddied by the various other players. but with some nice touches of humour. The narration by Travis Baldree, , however, kept the momentum going, being read with well paced clarity and expression, the characters also voiced individually. A good performance.

Down on their luck, troubled P.I.s usually make great central characters, but poor old Rick just seemed to be forever looking over his shoulder, trying to hide away from something he might or might only be suspected of doing, harping on all the time but not letting on to his readers what actually happened. At first intriguing, for this reader it began to be tedious towards the latter part of the book. Would I read another one - yes, if voiced by the same narrator. But recommend it? I don't think so.
