Meanwhile, there were two important subplots that were developed by Matthews. First, as another factor in his depression/failure, Drake had tried to write a crime-cop novel that had been rejected by every publisher, and he became a part of a writers' group who had similar frustrations. It's one thing to finish a book and it's another to get it in print. Second, a serial murderer was at work, and the killer was targeting literary agents in one NYNY neighborhood. Matthews successfully brought the several plotlines to a fitting and exciting conclusion that I did not see coming until the end of the book.
This reviewer can only guess that Matthews must have been frustrated with his own efforts to find a literary agent and to get published, so there is a strong undercurrent of humor as one agent after another is gruesomely murdered. Rejection is a good book which gets my recommendation, and I hope to see another Lou Drake book. It was a book that I stayed up too late to finish, and if Matthews can produce more works like this, he has a good chance of landing in the "power rotation" of authors at menreadingbooks.blogspot.com.
The main character, Lou Drake is not just another down on his luck cop. He is every man. You will find yourself recognizing a little bit of yourself in him. You will also recognize the array of characters that seem to drive his life against his own will and desires. They surround us everyday. If you have ever been rejected, you know what I mean.
Don't let this one get by you.
This author has story-telling ability. I would have given a rating of four, had he invested a little time in proof-reading.
