The Story...
Murderer: the label that stains forever. Can Rick Cahill find redemption by rescuing another accused? A woman with a past, darker than his own.
Chandler-esqueA hard edge with a heart
Rick Cahill was never convicted of his wifes murder, but he was never exonerated either. Not by the police. Not by the media. Not even by himself. Eight years later, police suspicion and his own guilt remain over his responsibility in his wifes death.

When he meets Melody Malana, a beautiful yet secretive TV reporter, he sees a chance to love again. When she is arrested for murder and asks Rick for help, the former cop says no, but the rest of him says yes and he grasps at a chance for redemption. But Ricks attempt to help turns terribly wrong, and he becomes a suspect in the murder and the target of a police manhunt.

On the run, Rick encounters desperate people wholl kill to keep their pasts buried. Before Rick can save himself and bring down a murderer, he must confront the truth about his own past and untangle his feeling for a woman he can never fully trust.

The Buzz...
Coyle does a superb job of drawing the reader in and keeps a steady pace of action along with solid character development. This celebration of the crime noir novels of old with a modern sensibility in Rick Cahill as hero will strongly appeal to fans of classic hard-boiled PI novels.

Outstanding debutDont miss this one! Wow, thumbs up for Matt Coyle!...Coyle is going to give some of the mystery writers a run for their money.
Fresh Fiction, April 2013

Yesterdays Echo is plotted with a sure hand, and the prose flows fast and crisp like a mountain river. It will captivate you so that you dont want to put it down, and you dont want it to endat least not until the next installment is available.
Suspense Magazine

. . . [a] flawlessly executed debut novel . . .

Told in the first-person, Mr. Coyles flawlessly executed debut novel, Yesterdays Echo is crime noir at its best, teeming with memorable characters and unexpected plot twists.

The warts-and-all Rick Cahill is a breath of fresh air and one of the most exciting protagonists to hit the pages of a novel in a long time.A cool, compulsively readable crime story from beginning to end.
New York Journal of Books

The plot thickens like California fog, and in that gray murk, Rick sees the light. He realizes hes been had and reminds us that life moves forward, but the reverberations chase after you like yesterdays echo.

In Yesterdays Echo, blackmail and historical intrigue are intermixed with the murder theme. Cahill is pulled in several directions as he tries to stay out of jail, save the restaurant and resolve Adams and his wifes murders. Those looking for a fast-read beach book will find this is a good one.
San Diego Union Tribune

"Yesterdays Echo by Matt Coyle-was surprised at how good the first novel set in La Jolla California was. Award worthy."
Deadly Pleasures

Distributed by Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Midpoint Trade, OverDrive, and other fine distributors.
