Lou Drake was once the pride of the NYPD detectives until the high profile Hennings murder case went terribly wrong, nearly ending his career. Ten years later, fifty pounds heavier and three months from retirement, Drake works patrol in the backwater borough of Malcolm New York. He spends his idle time reading crime novels and writing one of his own.
When Drake breaks protocol on another brutal murder scene, endangering his rookie partner, his captain demotes him to the booking cage. But when another body is discovered and both victims are identified as struggling literary agents, the NYPD Chief of Detectives decides Lou's writing experience could benefit the case and pairs him with his old partner one last time.
As they look for clues in the struggling publishing industry, Drake finds himself thrust into the middle of a serial murder case where a methodical perpetrator is systematically killing those who rejected him. Drake must revive his old detective prowess and trust his writer's intuition to try and solve the case, while possibly exposing the truth about the old Hennings investigation - a secret that would expose a web of corruption that could shake the NYPD to its core.
Rejection (Lou Drake Mysteries) Reviews
Told almost entirely in flashback, the story begins with tongue firmly planted in cheek, "It was a dark and stormy night..." I read this book in two sittings and was impressed at how easily and fluidly the author told the story. Lou Drake, once hero cop, is now a best selling author of the genre he knows best--crime fiction. While the body count is higher than most, the author steers clear of using gore for shock value and instead crafts a well-spun tale of murder, betrayal, and rejection.
Whoa this is quite the mystery book and the crimes are sit on the edge of your chair scary. Could not put it down and didn't figure it out til the time the author told me who this killer was. Don't get too many this chilling these days, a breath holding ride til the end.
I could not put this book down! I read it in two sittings. What a roller coaster ride – a ride of murder, mystery and lots of suspense. I fell in love with Lou Drake (the main character). He is just trying to retire as a cop. He takes life in stride and just keeps pursuing his dreams of being an author – even though there are stalls along the way. I give this book a 5 star rating as it had a great plot, great characters, awesome details and a fantastic ending. I loved that the back stories of all the characters were filled in and you had no questions remaining when you finished the book. Awesome thriller!!

Rejection, Rejection, Rejection… I am definitely not rejecting this book!
Thomas Matthews seriously knows his stuff. I have never been a big fan of crime drama; however, after reading Rejection, I am reconsidering this decision. Mr. Matthews had me from the very beginning of this story as told by the main character Lou Drake. This story had murder, mystery, corruption and suspense. I am usually so good at decoding who the “bad guy” is in a story; however Mr. Matthews had me guessing at every turn.
REJECTION moved at a good pace, the characters were great and the plot was remarkable. I can’t say that I had one character that I liked the most, they were all great! I was a bit surprised at the ending though; I really thought there would have been more justice served.
I love that Mr. Matthews showed what it is really like for all writers out there, their struggles and their gift. He made a point in showcasing that not everyone can become a published author, just because you have a type writer, word processor, computer or even old fashion pen and paper. There is A LOT more to becoming an author than simply having the tools.
Kudos to Mr. Matthew for highlighting his gift with this novel.

I quite liked liked this book, got me stuck with it on the final 100 pages till 2am...
However, I don't know if it was the author's idea but I didn't believe it was his friend of the reading group, it was quite obvious it was the other man because he suddenly appears in what I thought was a strange way ...anyhow, it was still interesting to learn what &how things were tied. Nice story !
