A Good Standalone Novel From Mr. Lashner

Mr. Lashner deviates from his Victor Carl series to give us a standalone read. Kyle Burn barely knew his father and kind of freaks out at his funeral spilling his ashes. 14 years later Kyle is a blue collar worker who likes to play baseball and continually thinks he sees his father. He even scours the newspaper for men approximately his father's age who died and then goes to the funerals. Then suddenly his father's partner is murdered and the murderer approaches Kyle to find the O'Malley file for him.

It seems that everyone is after the same file including a semi-mob bookie. Kyle is pursued by two detectives for the murder of his father's partner. As Kyle gets closer to the file he finds himself in more danger.

I generally liked the book but what it lacks and why it is not "great" is that the file is in a fairly obvious place and you wonder why the killer didn't find it. Also, a lot of explanations later on seem too obviously regarding Kyle's father's story, the file and the people that the file can hurt. Also, there is not a lot of tenision that are in most thrillers. Even with all these flaws, it still kept my interest till the end and I was able to finish the book fairly quick.
