    Awkward def when you re a cop tasked with investigating your incoming chief of police for murder This is Detective Jack Murphy s reality Thirty seven years ago, a high school student named Max Day was killed in a cemetery Among those questioned at the time was Richard Dick, Max classmate sworn enemy The investigation was led by Richard s father who was chief at the time eventually it was shelved.Jack partner Liddell Blanchard make up the murder squad in Evansville, Indiana There Awkward def when you re a cop tasked with investigating your incoming chief of police for murder This is Detective Jack Murphy s reality Thirty seven years ago, a high school student named Max Day was killed in a cemetery Among those questioned at the time was Richard Dick, Max classmate sworn enemy The investigation was led by Richard s father who was chief at the time eventually it was shelved.Jack partner Liddell Blanchard make up the murder squad in Evansville, Indiana There s a new mayor ready to be sworn in she wants to replace current chief Marlon Pope Richard is her choice but Max remaining family have always maintained his father covered up his involvement So Jack Liddell are given their marching orders Reopen the cold case clear Richard for the top job.They ve barely begun when Max s sister Reina is attacked in the same cemetery where he died Evansville is one of those places where memories are long everyone knows your business The problem is getting people to talk the investigation is not winning them many friends around the office either Then tragedy strikes they have a fresh body on their hands.In alternate chapters, we spend time with Richard known as Double Dick around the station as he tries to quell rumours mitigate the fallout from the investigation He s a pompous ass who s butted heads with Jack for years is determined nothing will prevent him from following in his father s footsteps.I love procedurals that include cold cases There s something appealing about an old mystery finally being solved so I really enjoyed this aspect of the story It s a complex genuine head scratcher as we gradually find out who dun what how it will all play out However.as I read, I began to ponder that age old question how many dick jokes are too many Discuss amongst yourselves while I give you my take I realize the Richard s name was chosen for this ongoing gag but it tested my patience, especially in terms of Liddell He Jack are 2 experienced detectives staring down a tense investigation that is tearing the town apart And Liddell s contribution largely consists of jumping on every opportunity to make a dick joke Instead of picturing them based on the physical descriptions provided, over time they began to remind me of Beavis Butt head heh heh heh IMHO, 2 or 3 times would be enough for readers to share a cheeky grin After that, it s just tired.Which led to an odd situation I actually preferred the 2 MC s when they were separated engaged with other characters There s a diverse cast a couple of standouts for me were departing Chief Marlon Pope the remarkable Amelia Day, Max mother We also become familiar with our MC s backgrounds personal lives I must confess I haven t read the other books in this series so don t know if the author s style of humour is a staple The cold case element makes for a great story so if you ve read enjoyed previous outings this should be right up your alley 3.5 stars

    I won this kindle e book in a Goodreads Giveaway Thank you Lyrical Underground, Rick Reed and Goodreads Following is my honest review.It is a police procedural crime murder novel While it is the eighth in the series, it worked as a standalone book However, knowingdetails from the back stories may have giveninsight into the main and secondary characters The plot is well written and the characters have depth Detectives Jack Reed and Liddell Blanchard are assigned a cold case I won this kindle e book in a Goodreads Giveaway Thank you Lyrical Underground, Rick Reed and Goodreads Following is my honest review.It is a police procedural crime murder novel While it is the eighth in the series, it worked as a standalone book However, knowingdetails from the back stories may have giveninsight into the main and secondary characters The plot is well written and the characters have depth Detectives Jack Reed and Liddell Blanchard are assigned a cold case that is 37 years old The related cases keep building as the investigation continues One area that left me wantingwas related to Liddell He was very much a secondary character even though he was with Jack most of the time I felt that he should have played a somewhat larger role.What does this book have Police investigations old and new , murder, beatings, kidnapping, assault, drugs, politics, and so muchIt is not an action adventure thriller, but an intriguing, readable, and satisfying police procedural With politics involved, will the detectives careers even survive I am looking forward to my next Rick Reed book in this series

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Kensington Books for an advance copy of The Cleanest Kill, the eighth novel to feature Detective Jack Murphy and his partner Detective Liddell Blanchard of the Evansville, Indiana PD.It s not going well in Evansville PD A new mayor wants to promote unpopular Assistant Chief Richard Dick to Chief of Police but for that to happen he must be cleared of any involvement in the 37 year old unsolved murder of Max Day Max s family are sure he is the perpetrator and I would like to thank Netgalley and Kensington Books for an advance copy of The Cleanest Kill, the eighth novel to feature Detective Jack Murphy and his partner Detective Liddell Blanchard of the Evansville, Indiana PD.It s not going well in Evansville PD A new mayor wants to promote unpopular Assistant Chief Richard Dick to Chief of Police but for that to happen he must be cleared of any involvement in the 37 year old unsolved murder of Max Day Max s family are sure he is the perpetrator and have been talking to the press about it The current Chief has tasked Dick s archenemies, Jack and Bigfoot as he is affectionately known, with solving the case but their task gets harder when Max s remaining family is targeted.I thoroughly enjoyed The Cleanest Kill which is another action packed investigation with a dash of cop humour to leaven the violence It is told mainly from the detectives point of view but the reader is given a glimpse of the unidentified killer s thoughts and actions He is cold blooded to be sure but is it Double Dick as he is less than affectionately known or someone else Mr Reed does an excellent job of ratcheting up the tension and suspicion in the reader s mind The solution came as a surprise because it is logical and the hints are all there but it just didn t occur to me The novel is action packed with its fair share of gunshots and bodies It makes for an exciting read and it had me turning the pages quickly to see what was coming next It is not, however, all blood and gore The dialogue is snappy and fun to read with its humour and personality clashes It seems very natural and realistic There is also a sprinkling of politics as the police department gets caught between the outgoing and incoming mayors, again natural and realistic.I have been reading this series from the start so I feel that I know the characters well by now and always look forward to spending time with them Jack and Bigfoot have an easy, humorous relationship which sometimes leads people to underestimate them The are smart, tenacious investigators who refuse to give up, often putting themselves in danger to get a result I found it interesting that the reader gets a better of view of Double Dick s thinking Before the reader often had to judge him on his actions and Jack s views but this is muchup close and personal and his name is fairly apt.The Cleanest Kill is a good read which I have no hesitation in recommending

    Thoroughly enjoyed Jack Murphy and his partner Liddell, are a great team The characters are all believable The build up to Max s murder sounds like boys being boys You believe the murderer has to be one of the three boys involved in the original fight that caused Max s death As the story progresses other options as to how and why Mac s murder has gone unsolved for over 30 years make you wonder, who all was involved.Thank you netgalley I now need to go back and read some of Rick Reeds earl Thoroughly enjoyed Jack Murphy and his partner Liddell, are a great team The characters are all believable The build up to Max s murder sounds like boys being boys You believe the murderer has to be one of the three boys involved in the original fight that caused Max s death As the story progresses other options as to how and why Mac s murder has gone unsolved for over 30 years make you wonder, who all was involved.Thank you netgalley I now need to go back and read some of Rick Reeds earlier books

    This book, which I received as a digital ARC through NetGalley, offered me delight and frustration in equal measure.Delight because 1 This is a new writer and new series to me, and I m always thrilled to come upon a well written crime series 2 especially one that is write by an actual cop 3 and further, one which has the plot propulsion and character development of the very best crime books, along with realistic dialogue.Frustration because there were definitely parts of the book that This book, which I received as a digital ARC through NetGalley, offered me delight and frustration in equal measure.Delight because 1 This is a new writer and new series to me, and I m always thrilled to come upon a well written crime series 2 especially one that is write by an actual cop 3 and further, one which has the plot propulsion and character development of the very best crime books, along with realistic dialogue.Frustration because there were definitely parts of the book that didn t live up to its potential.First, the editing wasn t careful enough even the strongest writers need an eagle eye editing team 1 There were numerous continuity glitches, such as a scene in a cemetery where the car under attack is a Camaro one moment, a Buick in the next paragraph, and a Camaro again by the time the police arrive and some missing evidence tire iron and broken bottles are in Chapter 29 found by Sgt Simms in the police property room behind some shelves, and then in Chapter 38 Sgt Walker finds them in a dead detective s storage unit.Other examples of things I d expect an editor to catch Within a couple lines of each other, one character shows a toothy smile and another a toothy grin our main character, Jack, uses the word infer where it should have been imply and Jack tells an Ohio state senator that he as a part time FBI agent and the senator both work for the federal government of course, Senator Needham works for the state of Ohio, not being a U.S Senator I ve done something like 120 reviews of NetGalley books, and I ve never gone into this detail before on another review But this book had so much promise it had all the elements to, as they say, transcend the genre

    Received this book from the Goodreads Giveaways and I really loved it This is the latest in the Jack Murphy series and I enjoy seeing the progression of all the characters Jack is still a tough no nonsense cop who plays by his own rules sometimes but he does have a softer side when it comes to his ex wife who he is living with His partner, Liddell, is a big loveable goofball that is also a good cop He is always eating and backs up Jack well.In this story Jack and Liddell are asked to look in Received this book from the Goodreads Giveaways and I really loved it This is the latest in the Jack Murphy series and I enjoy seeing the progression of all the characters Jack is still a tough no nonsense cop who plays by his own rules sometimes but he does have a softer side when it comes to his ex wife who he is living with His partner, Liddell, is a big loveable goofball that is also a good cop He is always eating and backs up Jack well.In this story Jack and Liddell are asked to look into a 37 year old cold case The murder victim s mother has been contacted by the Deputy Chief of Police Richard Dick and it has stirred up the old case The Deputy Chief is hoping to become the Chief when the new mayor takes over and he doesn t want suspicions from this old case, because he was involved, to ruin that Jack investigates the murder and that of the victim s father also He is aided by his Captain, a crime scene tech, a patrolman who was involved in the original cases, and his usual assortment of colleagues Thehe digs theit looks like evidence was hidden and there was corruption in the police department Several other people are killed before he can uncover what happened He is trying to protect the victim s sister who has been attacked and see if the Deputy Chief is guilty The Deputy Chief is a jerk and throughout the previous books you always just want the guy to go away but no matter what he does he seems to keep hanging around He doesn t like Jack and will not cooperate in the investigation His buddies from back in the day also aren t cooperating It looks as though his father was also involved in the coverup.Lots going on in the story with some hardnosed investigating and some small side stories

    Details matter in police procedurals I ve not read Rick Reed s books previously, but I was able to read this police procedural as a stand alone The author gives enough story background, and the police protagonists detectives Jack Murphy and Liddell Blanchard are boldly drawn characters, who are easy to like at the beginning, but harder to tolerate as the book goes on The partners are given two must solve cold cases thirty seven and thirty four year old murders that are missing official documen Details matter in police procedurals I ve not read Rick Reed s books previously, but I was able to read this police procedural as a stand alone The author gives enough story background, and the police protagonists detectives Jack Murphy and Liddell Blanchard are boldly drawn characters, who are easy to like at the beginning, but harder to tolerate as the book goes on The partners are given two must solve cold cases thirty seven and thirty four year old murders that are missing official documents and crucial evidence Plus, it seems that very little effort was made to investigate the deaths The storyline is complex with numerous subplots that involve secondary characters most well drawn with different idiosyncrasies, so police procedural fans can eliminate suspects as new murders are committed The twists and revelations that come on the heels of the murders and attempted murders keep the book moving at a brisk pace As mentioned earlier, as the book progresses, Murphy and Blanchard s continual banter began to annoy Bite me, Murphy says again and again, whilst Blanchard has a fun with dick words What s worse are problems with details 1 a very specifically described Camaro becomes a Buick 2 missing evidence a bloody tire iron and an package of broken beer bottles are found hidden in a police property room, BUT are later found in an U Haul storage unit and 3 storage units, storage lockers and storage bins are not the same things I m a police procedural aficionado, so I am picky 3 stars because overall, this is a decent read Plus I m willing to try another book by Rick Reed
