Marty Singer is an unlikely hero in that he is retired, and solves cases that he shouldn’t really be involved in. He has no credentials, but is still a good homicide detective, and actually cares about people. The third installment in the Marty Singer series, One Right Thing by Matthew Iden starts when Singer is driving through a rural Virginia town and sees a message on a billboard involving a man who has been murdered, but who Marty previously arrested for murder and sent to prison for 20 years. The felon’s family doesn’t want Marty to stick his nose into it, and neither do those in the small-town police department. In fact, Marty goes against all odds to try and do the right thing by solving the murder and setting his conscience to rest.
Iden is an excellent suspense writer, and deserves to be more well-known. His books have solid plots, a protagonist who seems real, with real problems (cancer for a start, which is why he retired), and fast moving scenarios that will keep readers on the edge.
Positive aspects of the Marty Singer series are that the books are very affordable on Kindle, they are fast reads, and will keep readers’ interest without a bunch of fluff. Iden does a good job of describing his characters and making them real, and while there is some mild violence where Marty shows that even though he’s aging, he still has what it takes to defend himself, there is no sex and minimal profanity.
The Marty Singer series is recommended for all readers who like fast moving suspense with surprise endings and unique storylines.
