I would give this 6 stars if I could. JD is a cop, Matt is a retired lawyer living on an island off Sarasota, FL. The story starts with a murder, a high speed chase that results with the perp driving off a bridge. Griffin has two story lines going throughout the book, one with a 1940's timeline, the other one in the present. Who is killing the senior citizens from Cortez? Why? Where is JD's friend Kate and is she still alive? The story moves fast and holds your attention. Griffin ties everything up neatly and plausibly. I am going to hunt down the other Matt Royal novels. Great series

In Longboat Key, Fla., Matt, J.D., and Jock are on the case when an elderly man is killed and another disappears, a photo is sent to J.D. of her almost surely dead college friend--and somebody's trying to kill them all. The quiet of Longboat Key, Florida, is shattered when an old man is shot to death and his murderer is killed while fleeing the police. Strange documents in German and Arabic are found in the killer's car then an old friend of the murdered man disappears. The island's only detective, Jennifer Diane (J.D.) Duncan receives a text message with a picture taken that morning of a college friend whom she thought was dead. Matt Royal and J.D. are pursued by men who would do them harm, and Matt's best friend, Jock Algren, a shadowy operative of the U.S. government's most secretive intelligence agency comes to visit the island. As the mystery deepens, a ragtag group of devious and dangerous characters intrudes on the lives of the islanders, creating a kind of havoc unusual for a sun-splashed island full of retirees and beach bums. Matt, J.D., and Jock rush to find the answer to why one old man was killed and another disappeared, the meaning of the photo sent to J.D. of her almost surely dead college friend, and why somebody is trying to kill them.

I was so happy when I received the notice I was getting a copy of this book in Nov. but really disappointed when by Jan the book still had not come. When it did finally come, I felt like a kid on Christman Day when Santa Claus came and left me every thing I wanted. This may have been my first H.Terrell Griffin book but it will not be the last.It hooks you from the first page and does not let go until the last. If you have never read one of his book,put it on your to-do list. Thank you very much Library Thing for introducing me to a new author for my ever going favorite list.

This is my first Matt ...

This is my first Matt Royal mystery. I found it to be a relatively quick read, however, one has to pay attention as there are several threads running thru the book. The characters are well done and believable, altho, I do wonder if in the real world a police detective would rely as much on friends outside of the police force. I gave it three and 1/2 stars mostly due to the fact that the author tends to use names over and over when building up a characterization. For example, the use of "Bess" in every short paragraph about her. A characterization can be accomplished without resorting to continuous name usage.

This was a Library Thi...

This was a Library Thing giveaway for a review! Thank you Library Thing~ "Found" is a Matt Royal Mystery - apparently #8 in the series, but my 1st! Although I have not read any of the previous books, I definitely did not feel lost or had even a inkling in reading this book, that it was part of a series, so I would say if you like the legal thriller mystery genre - than you can start with this one and not feel lost or that they are discusing something that happened in previous books(even if they happen to be). I have to say, it was a good book, It definitely had the feel of a Micky Spillane or better yet, a Travis Mcgee. An interesting twist at the end that got me.. and I thought I had it all figured out, only to find a twist at the end that caught me by surprised. This is a quick easy going read with plenty of action, romance, mystery and well... a lot of drinking too. Worth your while if you like the "legal thriller' genre

An old man is shot and...

An old man is shot and killed in a seemingly random attack. A cop gets a text from her friend . . .one whom everyone thought was murdered a year ago. Another man who knew them both disappears. A German U-boat lurks in the Gulf of Mexico 60 years ago. A mysterious mobster that no one can identify is involved with all of these things somehow. These are the things that Matt and JD, partners in life and in solving crimes, try to unravel. They have to deduce all of the connections that exist between them before more people end up dead. I enjoyed this book generally, but I did find it to be a bit difficult to follow. There are a LOT of characters and a lot of plot points that a great deal of attention needs to be paid to all of them to really follow this story. I liked the depth of the characters and the fact that they are multi-dimensional. The conclusion of the story is satisfying and there is a neat plot twist towards the end. The pace is steady and the action is exciting if a bit predictable. The Florida setting feels authentic. The writing is precise with crisp descriptions of both the actions and the setting. Really the only thing I didn't like was that the plot at times seemed to be overly complicated and there were so many characters that at times it became a bit confusing. Still, I did like the story and the main characters are compelling. If you like police procedural type mysteries you should check out this series.
