Silent Echo (The Rain Collective Book 4)
Private investigator Jim Booker was given six months to live eight months ago.
He appreciates each new day, knowing he's on borrowed time. It's safe to pretty much nothing could drag Jim Booker back to late night surveilances, crime scenes and shoot outs.
But when a childhood friend asks him to look into a case about an old flame, Booker can't say no.
What starts as a missing persons case soon delves into something far more than Jim bargained for, especially when he finds a connection to his brother's unsolved murder -- a cold case reaching back twenty years.
Now, Jim Booker just needs to stay alive long enough to catch a killer...
What Readers are saying:
"I don't like books that make me cry... except this one! A dying private eye gives his all to find the killer of his soul mate, the wife of his childhood friend. In studying the case, he feels it must be connected to his own brother's death many years ago. Each day could be his last, but with the help of his friend Numi, he works on, trying to solve the horrifying riddle. Moving, suspenseful, a love story. Superb book." ?Amazon reviewer
"So Rain hit upon a brilliant idea. Write about the slow demise of the subject as he tries to solve a murder that has directly impacted his life, and may have even led to his own physical decline. You find very few writers today who actually succeed in the job of the novelist, so finding one like this is an unexpected treat." ?Amazon reviewer
"No matter how many books I read, I am constantly amazed to pick up a book by somebody I've never read -- and find he is a well-known author with many books out there being sold. But this book amazed me more for the content. I was privileged to work on three different books dealing with AIDS while working with Rainbow's End Publishing. All of them were wonderful, but this one blew me away with its intimacy, sensitivity, and revelation of living with AIDS. In this case, also compounded by cancer, which apparently was dormant and responded unfavorably to the virus. But I'm just spotlighting what Rains has shared, dare I say, so eloquently, so compassionately." ?Amazon reviewer
"This book is probably the most brutally honest account of a man's last days alive, struggling to breathe, to even nod his head as the untreatable cancer eats away at his lungs. It is a story of how he got the lung cancer (no, not from smoking) and why he is still alive two months after the expiration date pronounced by his doctors. It is a story of guilt and self-hatred, not only over his present circumstances but also over an unsolved murder that occurred 22 years in the past. Above all, it is a story of true friendship, a friendship that transcends the fear of an infectious disease. And it is the story of an unconditional love that gives our protagonist one last chance to redeem himself -- to solve that murder that so shaped his life and his self-destruction." ?Amazon reviewer
"This started out as a very typical J.R. Rain book for me. Like many others of his I have read, it is about a PI in California investigating a missing person. It definitely has his typical writing flare, which is so wonderful. But the story soon became less about the detective story, the mystery surrounding the murder, and more about the life of the PI, Jimmy. Usually that would bother me, but this was so well written, intertwined with the investigation, that it just made sense. This book is a murder mystery, yes, but it is also about a man who is dying and trying to resolve some issues before his death." ?Amazon reviewer
