Editorial Reviews

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
I found it very unpleasant to write Deviations, the second book in the series, because my protagonist, Karen Seagate, is brutalized--twice. I had come to like her very much in writing the series debut, Big Sick Heart, and I hated to see her hurt so badly. But the psychological arc that I set in motion in that first book made it necessary to bring Karen to that point.

To make her confront what she had made of her life, I had to strip her of her last vestiges of dignity and subject her to extraordinary violence. Alienated from her new boss and even from her partner, Ryan Miner, she needed to literally set off alone to find the psychopath who raped and murdered a popular state senator. Only in confronting her own imminent murder could Karen Seagate discover what she truly valued and begin to become an integrated personality.

Excerpts from some Amazon reviews:

"Mike Markel knows how to write dialogue! The chatter in Seagate's headis at once tragic and hilarious. Yes, this woman is a mess, but for some reason I liked her from the beginning. The author pulls no punches with this story and Seagate ends up on the losing end more than once. Still I couldn't help but hope that she'd find a way to pull herself togetherand solve the brutal murder."

"If you enjoy detective novels, add Deviations to your reading list. Detectives Seagate and Miner are not to be missed."

"If you love reading compelling page turners full with vivid sense ofplace, wise-ass and witty characters, well-turned plot, and engagingdialogue in stories informed by an understanding of the ways in which wehurt ourselves, heal ourselves, and move on motivated by a belief thateveryone deserves what's coming to them--justice for all, whetherwelcomed or feared--you will be rewarded in reading Markel's two novels. The characters are vulnerable and real; the stories vivid and violent,yet admirably restrained; the pacing masterful; and the theme timeless."

"Detective Seagate is a wreck, like the aftermath of a head-on collision. She's a drunk, lost her job, and doesn't give a hoot about anythingincluding herself. . . . Every step she takes and every decision she makes putsyou on the edge of your seat and keeps you there. You want to yell out,"I need to warn you" and "Don't do that" but she does it anyway. I can't go into more details as it would spoil the read, but you want more andshe gives you some and then you get hungry and want more. The book iswell written, the characters are unique and understandable and her cause is blatant, and full of questions. You can love and hate her, and thenyou want even more. It's hard to put this one down. I enjoyed every page and gave it 5-stars."
