About the Author

For fifteen years, David Corbett worked for the San Francisco private investigation firm of Palladino & Sutherland, and played a significant part in a number of high-profile criminal and civil litigations, including the Lincoln Savings & Loan Case, The DeLorean Trial, the Coronado Company marijuana indictments, The Cotton Club Murder Case, The People’s Temple Trial, the first Michael Jackson child molestation case, and a RICO civil litigation brought by the Teamsters against former union leaders associated with organized crime—as well as numerous other drug, murder, and fraud cases. In 1995, he eased out of private investigation work to serve as office manager and “Man Friday” for his wife, Terri, as she launched her own law practice, specializing in probate litigation, estate planning, and small business law. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in September, 2000, and in January, 2001, passed away at age forty-six.

Six weeks before Terri’s death, Ballantine purchased Corbett’s first novel, The Devil’s Redhead. Widely praised, it was nominated for both the Anthony and Barry Awards for Best First Novel of 2002. His follow-up, Done for a Dime, was also broadly acclaimed (“the best in contemporary crime fiction…one of the three or four best American crime novels I’ve ever read.”~ The Washington Post), was named a New York Times Notable Book, and was nominated for the Macavity Award for Best Novel of 2003. His third novel, 2007’s Blood of Paradise, was compared to the work of Graham Greene and Robert Stone and was chosen by Admiral James Stavridis, then commander of the US Southern Command, for the SOUTHCOM reading list. It was also selected one of the Top Ten Mysteries and Thrillers of 2007 by The Washington Post, and was nominated for an Edgar® Award. His fourth novel, 2010’s Do They Know I’m Running? also garnered widespread praise (“a rich, hard-hitting epic” ~ Publishers Weekly, starred review), was named one of the top ten crime fiction books of 2010 by January Magazine, and was selected as Best Novel—Rising Star Category for the Spinetingler Award.

This mystery/thriller will not appeal to everyone, as there is a lot going on. I thoroughly enjoyed it, however. The historical details made it easy to imagine the setting this took place in. Great writing!

I loved this book. I have been to Tombstone multiple times so I was eager to read it. These letters were supposedly lost but surfaced in the hands of Tuck, a reformed art forger. Lisa is an arts lawyer attracted to Tuck. These letters were written between Doc Holliday and his childhood sweetheart. Since the letters may never be able to be authenticated. Tuck hired Lisa to sell them on the black market. A cheating judge gets involved and what will happen to the letters, are they real, will this be another stand off in Tombstone.? I going now to rewatch Tombstone and look at my pictures that I took there. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no compensation.

Picked this up because my husband loves the movie Tombstone and I found it good for a western. Being a genealogist and possessor old letters between my grandparents in the early 1900 the passages Corbett prints of the the letters between Doc and his cousin Mattie are typical of the way they communicated. That being said these letter contents are sprinkled through this crime drama but slow the plot and some of the redeeming action of the current day characters. Struggled to finish I am sorry to say. "A copy of this book was provided by Black Opal via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion." DO LOVE THE COVER!!

The Long-Lost Love Letters of Doc Holliday is a tickle to the imagination. This is an intriguing what if. This thrilling mystery will take you down several paths and each is as exciting as the last.
