Still Among The Living by Zachary Klein

The first book in Zachary Klein's acclaimed Matt Jacob series, named a New York Times Notable Book, STILL AMONG THE LIVING introduces the unforgettable private eye in a case that stays with you after you turn the last page.

Boston P.I. Matt Jacob has a rude and startling wake up visit from his shrink. Matt has a cloudy past—a freak accident that wiped out most of his family and a P.I. license buried somewhere in his Depression-era, Art Deco-style apartment. He does his best to maintain his self-imposed alienation by watching too much TV and doing too many drugs. But he’s forced to get off the couch when his therapist asks him to investigate a suspicious break-in at her office building. At the same time, his best friend, Simon, a hotshot lawyer, persuades him to follow his wife and find the cause of her hellish nightmares. But what begins as two simple favors soon turns into a fight for his life when the unrelated cases combine to snare Matt into a web of adultery, betrayal, and murder.

An interesting, fast-paced novel that is exciting and hard to put down, the book is fatally flawed in its basic premise, that a dissolute, inexperienced man who has not worked for several years would be, out of the blue, given TWO investigatory jobs at the same time. This just wouldn't happen. Would not happen. Also, he just happens to have a friend/fellow drug user who has lots of contacts and street smarts. Again, wouldn't happen. So even though the book held my interest, the sheer implausibility of the events makes me, reluctantly but finally, to not recommend this book.
