Big Sick Heart - Mike Markel
Big Sick Heart is the first novel in the Detectives Seagate and Miner Mystery series. This book is free for the kindle. This is a straight police murder mystery, but with some interesting twists. Karen Seagate is a police detective in the town of Rawlings Montana. Karen and her new partner Ryan Miner are assigned to a security detail to protect a couple of men who are debating stem cell research at the local college. The detectives see the debaters to their hotel, but later that night one of the men is brutally murdered. Karen and Ryan are working to solve the murder, while Karen deals with the problems in her personal life, and her job. This is one of those murder mysteries you keep trying to solve in your head, but you're always one step behind. Karen's personal problems are kind of a distraction from my perspective, but the book is good. Highly recommended.
