Marshall Karp, coauthor of the #1 bestselling NYPD Red series, sets his latest thriller in LA, where someone is recruiting terminally ill patients to commit one final act before they die. Murder.
Laced with twists, turns, and Karp's trademark biting cop humor, you may find yourself rooting for the killers-law-abiding citizens who have abandoned their values to earn a half million dollars for the loved ones they will leave behind. You may also find yourself asking, "What would I do?"
If you've never met LAPD detectives Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs, TERMINAL is the perfect place to start.

If only I could give more than 5 stars for "Terminal" I would in a heartbeat!! Ten stars might not be enough for this book and this series. I absolutely love the Lomax and Biggs series by Marshall Karp and eagerly await the next one (they don't come often enough, but you have to let Mr. Karp have a life beyond writing books for me to read - lol). Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs are detectives in Los Angeles. They banter back and forth with sarcastic, witty comments while conducting murder investigations. In "Terminal", the duo investigate the recent murders - made to look like accidents - of several deaths. While investigating the murders, Lomax is dealing with a possible medical issue and during his prostate exam gunshots are heard in the medical building. Lomax runs towards the gunshots (as police do) disregarding his clothes or lack thereof. The humor mixed in with the mystery make this and the entire series some of the most satisfying mysteries that I have read. You could read this 5th book of the series out of order, but I would recommend that you start with the first book "The Rabbit Factory" and prepare yourself to search out the other books in the series. I had to force myself to stop reading midway through "Terminal" as I knew I would be upset, with myself, if I did not have the book to look forward to the next day. I emailed Mr. Karp to tell him how much I enjoy all of his books. If you have not tried the NYPD books that he writes with James Patterson, they are excellent too. I never expected a reply, but he graciously emailed me back. Marshall Karp is
