Overview

Hurt Machine (Moe Prager Series #7) by Reed Farrel Coleman

At a pre-wedding party for his daughter Sarah, Moe Prager is approached by his ex-wife and former PI partner Carmella Melendez. It seems Carmella's estranged sister Alta has been murdered, but no one in New York City seems to care. Why? Alta, a FDNY EMT, and her partner had months earlier refused to give assistance to a dying man at a fancy downtown eatery.

Moe decides to help Carmella as a means to distract himself from his own life-and-death struggle. Making headway on the case is no mean feat as no one, including Alta's partner Maya Watson, wants to cooperate. Moe chips away until he discovers a cancer roiling just below the surface, a cancer whose symptoms include bureaucratic greed, sexual harassment, and blackmail. But is any of it connected to Alta's brutal murder?

I enjoyed this mystery for several reasons. One reason is the story is set in NYC , one of my favorite places. It is a modern mystery, involving two EMTs who happen to be women, and whose struggle to make it in a mans' work environment figures prominently in the story. The main character is a retired cop who gets pulled into the investigation of his ex-wife's sister's murder. As the investigation unfolds, it becomes apparent how little we really know about our loved ones, and their secret heartaches. Very good read.

An enjoyable police tale told by a crusty sort of veteran who may be on his last investigation, giving him the opportunity to leave no stone unturned or ego unoffended. maybe too many twists and turns, and the liberation subplot seems dated, but you do it when the time is right for you.
