Murdock Tackles Taos--PICT VBT--Review & Giveaway


A dead girl with an arrow sticking out of her back sends Matt Murdock and Helene Steinbeck on a killer-hunt that takes them to Angel Mountain where a cold-blooded steely-eyed killer has hypnotized some rich people into funding a naughty habit involving pretty girls, young women in great shape from the worlds of Art and Professional Sport. The odds are fifty to one that they won't get out of this mess alive.

Author Bio: 

Robert J. Ray is a writer/ teacher with six Matt Murdock Mysteries, three volumes of The Weekend Novelist writing series, a tennis story, a thriller about diamonds, a small business textbook that has gone through five editions, and short pieces for magazines.

Catch Up With Robert:


  From my Perspective:

I must admit to thoroughly enjoying this mystery thriller featuring Matt Murdock  who was hired to find and return the daughter of a friend who went missing from an art colony in Taos, New Mexico.   What a mesmerizing read this turned out to be!

Strong characters, thrilling adventure, psychological deviancy, (is that a word?), strong, well thought out plot and storyline...an absolutely intriguing read!  I don't know what else could have made the story any better.  Helene Steinbeck  was an author attending a writer's workshop in Taos and while photographing flowers, stumbled across a warm dead body.   At this discovery she met Murdock who saved her from becoming a corpse herself.    Their alliance is forged in the fires of survival and mutual attraction.   And from there, the reading was almost manic to solve the mystery with the two main characters!

You can read this excellent book for yourself by entering the rafflecopter drawing below.   The winner will receive an e-copy of  Murdock Tackles Taos.   SO Good Luck!   I'm rating this mystery-thriller a 5 WINK read.
