    6. Dark FissuresMatt CoyleCoyle’s latest Rick Cahill novel is a gripping fast-paced, page-turner that will hook readers from page one and not let go until the end.

    10. And thus endeth, one hopes, the dreary series of tales involving a sad sack, rock stupid "detective," whose primary skill is walking alone into traps so obvious that you are groaning ahead of time. They books are more or less readable, though I had way too much fun with phrases such as, "Nothing personal, Buckley. I want it to just be me and Randall face-to-face between the glass" with its mammogramatical echoes, and "Even though she was the only woman onstage, I would have recognized her from b [...]

    11. This is one of the better books I have read. The plot twists and turns all the way to the end. The characters are very true to life,, and come across as real people. No one is perfect, but several characters present honor and morality to a fine degree. I got so involved, I had to delay my day so I could finish this book. Rick Cahill has just enough rough edges to make him a strong anti-hero. The area of Southern California where the action takes place is beautifully portrayed and provides strong [...]

    12. It doesn't seem like Rick Cahill's life could get worse, but it does. Cahill's past won't let him go. His present may kill him.Matt Coyle does a great job modernizing the classic PI tale in Dark Fissures.

    14. Things are not going well for La Jolla PI Rick Cahill.

    15. Fast paced, thick, and has everything. Feels like a movie script though. An almost good one time read. Nothing much to take away from it for me.

    16. I've enjoyed Matt Coyle's books and was not disappointed with this one, which kept me on the edge of my seat with constant twists and turns. Mr. Coyle paints a vivid and usually beautiful setting of San Diego and surrounding areas. And I find his characters fascinating.

    17. A topnotch hardboiled crime novel set in the wealthy enclaves of La Jolla, Del Mar, and Coronado where greed and desperation lurk just underneath the jeweled surfaces.

    18. Southern California is a dynamite setting for noir, which is a big reason why I've enjoyed this series so much. The first half of this book stands alone quite well, but eventually events from Book #2 play a heavier roll - so reading out of order is not recommended. The author writes tension well and his protagonist spends the entire book with the Sword of Damocles hanging over his head. It's all very deliberately paced until the ending - which felt very rushed. Otherwise enjoyable. Not my favori [...]

I enjoyed reading this book and wish the ending was different and better.

    20. Without a doubt, Matt Coyle has captured the essence of Raymond Chandler and the noir fiction thriller. The dialog and prose throughoutDark Fissurescaptured my attention from the first page. Rick Cahill, Coyle's protagonist, from his Anthony, Ben Franklin, and San Diego Book Award-winning thriller series, self-deprecating wit, intelligence, and a guarded vulnerability. Highly recommended, without reservation!

    26. “Dark Fissures” is part of Matt Coyle’s Rick Cahill series. While it is not necessary to have read the previous two books in this series, it would be beneficial because prior events and people are an integral part of this novel. The author does provide information about previous events and relationships when needed throughout the book. This helps new readers fill in relevant background, but it really takes the whole book to fit the previous events into the context of the current story. Ric [...]

    27. I read this some time ago, but for some reason did not write a review at the time. Matt Coyle was a new author to me and I had not read the previous two books in the series. This was not a problem. The book stands alone well and the storyline is easy to follow without having to know the detailed background of the characters. However, I love books that are written in a series and it would definitely be my preference to read them in the order they are written.Rick Cahill is a private investigator. [...]
