Michael D Golvach's 10-30 is a 'Riveting Crime Mystery.' Payden Beck has graduated from the police academy and is starting his first week under one of the most experienced officers, Richard LaMont. At the end of the week, LaMont takes Payden home to meet his younger wife, Ana, and when LaMont is called into work, Payden stays behind to look after Ana. The weekend passes in peace but on Monday morning LaMont is dead, found at his own kitchen table. While Payden cannot be a suspect, things are about to take a nightmarish turn for him. LaMont was a very private man and, together with Ana, Payden is about to find out why. Nothing is ever as it seems and secrets can never stay hidden forever. The deeper Ana and Payden slip into the investigation, the more confusing things become and events take a horrifying turn. Will they solve the mystery of Richard’s death? What they uncover in their quest could put their lives in danger.

Michael D Golvach's 10-30 really did make for riveting reading. This is a thriller that takes you on a journey you will never forget, a story with many twists and turns, a great deal of suspense and not a small amount of intrigue. It is an intense read, not one you should take your attention off for a single minute and, believe me when I say it, this is one story you will not want to put down. Mr. Golvach uses descriptive prose that puts you right there in the middle of the action. As the mystery deepens, you are pulled deeper and deeper in so there’s no getting out until the end. With some utterly believable characters, a unique storyline and a well-paced mystery, this is a heart-stopping tale that will enthrall any reader.

A fascinating story I would categorize as a sexy, psychological crime novel about a rookie police officer named Payden Beck who is working his first murder case. Payden isn’t your average cop. In fact, I think he might be a psychopath. That is not to say he is a bad person. He realized early on in life that he wasn’t like everybody else, being born without a moral compass. As a result, he has patterned his behavior after his father who was a good person, and in doing so, appears to be normal to those around him. The other main character is a sexy widow with some sort of obsessive-compulsive disorder who spends part of her time in a fantasy world. The chemistry between the two leads is awesome! The plot moves along at a steady clip and kept my interest from the first page right up to the twisted ending. I should mention that the book does contain explicit sexual language and situations in case that is outside your comfort zone. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy a good steamy murder mystery.
