Editorial Reviews

Review

"The narrative energy is relentless. The visual, cinematic style sticks to a single first-person viewpoint, a unity some contemporary thriller writers violate to their detriment. Present-tense narrative annoys some readers (including this one at times), but its sense of urgency and immediacy is effective in the March novels. Bertrand is a major crime-fiction talent--one of the best police procedural writers I've come upon in years ...." -- The Weekly Standard

From the Back Cover

A missing girl. A corrupt investigation. They thought they could get away with it, but they forgot one thing: Roland March is BACK ON MURDER

Houston homicide detective Roland March was once one of the best. Now he's disillusioned, cynical, and on his way out. His superiors farm him out on a variety of punishment details...until an unexpected break gives March one last chance to save his career. And his humanity.

 All he has to do? Find the missing teenage daughter of a Houston evangelist that every cop in town is already looking for. But March has an inside track, a multiple murder nobody else thinks is connected. Battling a new partner, an old nemesis, and the demons of his past, getting to the truth could cost March everything. Even his life.

"A rogue homicide detective is assigned to a grisly murder case, and through this investigation discovers core life values that overturn his world. Bertrand's first novel is an astonishing and powerful mystery. Extremely well crafted. Highly recommended." -- Davis Bunn, bestselling author of Gold of Kings

"There's no way you're going to take your eyes off [Back on Murder] until it's finished. The story and writing is that good." -- Sigmund Brouwer, bestselling author of Broken Angel 

"J. Mark Bertrand has captured the surreal world of homicide detectives with a realism and power rarely seen in fiction." -- Mark Mynheir, homicide detective and author of The Night Watchman
