Follow retired DC homicide cop Marty Singer as he takes on crime and life in the first three books of this best-selling detective series. The boxed set includes three full novels--A Reason to Live, Blueblood, and One Right Thing--two essays (“How I Met Marty” and “They Didn’t Come Cheap”), as well as an excerpt of the fourth in the Singer series, The Spike. -- A Reason to Live (Book 1) -- In the late nineties, a bad cop killed a good woman and DC Homicide detective Marty Singer got to watch as the murderer walked out of the courtroom a free man. Twelve years later, the victim's daughter comes to Marty begging for help: the killer is stalking her now. There's just one problem: Marty's retired...and he's retired because he's battling cancer. But with a second shot at the killer--and a first chance at redemption--Marty's just found A Reason to Live. -- Blueblood (Book 2) -- Four unrelated murders. Nothing special in Washington DC.
Not even good enough to make the evening news.
But then a concerned police lieutenant approaches retired homicide detective Marty Singer with a simple fact that changes everything.
They were all cops. In a race to stop the killings, Marty tackles the case from the outside, chasing the killer from deadly Southeast DC to the heart of the Virginia gangland, on a mission to stop the spilling of yet moreBlueblood.
-- One Right Thing (Book 3) -- Retired DC Homicide detective Marty Singer is driving through Virginia when he sees a billboard by the side of the road with the picture of a man and a simple, stunning question: J.D. HOPE WAS MURDERED ON MAY 6TH. DO YOU KNOW WHY? To most, the message means nothing. But Marty stops the car, turns around, and rushes headlong into a deadly mix of drugs, lies, and double-crosses. Because Marty's got his own history with the man on the sign...and he needs to find out who murdered J.D. Hope and why if he wants to do the One Right Thing.
