Editorial Reviews


The Idaho Statesman
"Third book in detective series is a great addition. This is a recommended read for those who want anintriguing mystery with interesting characters and a plot that keeps youguessing until the end. You do not have to read the first two books to enjoythis one; however, the detectives have worked together for several years, andyou can get more background about them from previous books.
My rating: Recommended."--Pam Brewer

From the Author

The Detectives Seagate and Miner Mystery series comprises six books:
  1. Big Sick Heart
  2. Deviations
  3. The Broken Saint
  4. Three-Ways
  5. Fractures
  6. The Reveal
In the previous book, Deviations, I broke Karen Seagate down to her most elemental level and let her begin to reassemble herself. In The Broken Saint, I focus on her relationship with her partner, Ryan Miner. Ryan's most essential characteristic is his devotion to the LDS church. For this reason, I created a plot that would force him to confront the conflict between his faith and his job as a detective.

As it turns out, Karen Seagate's hard-headed cynicism makes her the better detective in this case involving a high-ranking LDS church member who appears to have violated some important teachings of the church--and perhaps committed a murder. It isn't that Karen Seagate is hostile to Mormonism. She simply sees it just another form of self-delusion, just any other flavor of Christianity or Judaism or Islam.

Here are some excerpts from Amazon reviews:

"With Broken Saint, author Mike Markel demonstrates why he is one of therising masters of the detective mystery, his easy-reading style andcompelling characters pulling the reader from page to page and chapterto chapter. Throughout, Markel displays the wry humor that is his trademark, depicting weather, people, andinstitutions with equal measures of affection and sardonic amusement.The Seagate and Miner series has legs, and I, for one, happily expect to see it continue for some time."

"For some reason this story captivated me and I couldn't put it down. Iwas intrigued by the opposite characteristics of Seagate and Miner andthe descriptive dialogue by the narrator."

"Markel has a great ear for dialog, a sharp wit, a good imagination, andthe talent, skill and maturity to keep it all compelling. This book is a page-turner in the truest sense: it propels you to want to know whathappens next."

"Mike Markel's latest novel in the Detectives Seagate and Miner series is an excellent read: tight plot, believable characters, and cynicismreminiscent of Philip Marlowe. The reader is sucked into the story bythe opening, ghoulish description of a female body found by a passerbyin college-town USA. Detectives Seagate and Miner are soon on thescene--characters with their own troubled lives--trying to work out thecause and circumstance of the murder. The story expands to includenumerous suspects who become entwined with each other and the plot.This, the story's quick pace, and the detectives' cynical commentaryabout life, their work, and the current case keep the reader intriguedand entertained throughout. Highly recommended to those who enjoy a good detective novel."
