    1. This is a taut, noirish novel in which the action plays out in only a few hours, albeit very long hours, for the characters who are caught up in the story Marty Singer is a retired Washington, D.C homicide detective who s awakened out of a sound sleep a little after 9 00 one night by Chuck Rhee, a detective on the Arlington, Virginia police force who specializes in the criminal gangs that work the area Chuck s sixteen year old sister, Lucy, has failed to come home and Chuck instinctively knows t [...]


    2. But it was hard for my ex cop s brain not to tick off each of the misdemeanors and felonies I was flirting with the moment I d opened the gate behind the dump that was Tuck s house, trespassed through the yard, and tiptoed up the rear porch to try the back door MartyIn the fifth book of this series, retired homicide detective Marty Singer is back doing what he does best He s helping the people he loves and calls his friends with things that are out of their control Chuck Rhee, a cop who works ge [...]


    3. Very satisfying story in the Marty Singer series Lucy definitely had gumption, and so did Sarah The ending leaves everything and nothing to the imagination.


    4. I read Matthew Iden s explanation of The Wicked Flee and why he wrote it differently than the previous four books to challenge himself as an author The Wicked Flee only covered several hours as Marty and his friend Chuck Rhee try to track Rhee s missing younger sister, Lucy It is also written in SEVERAL point of views from various characters all using third person narrative including Marty s still in first person.I appreciated Iden s attempt unfortunately, I thought the story lacks of Marty Sing [...]


    5. Five stars for number 5 in the series from me I read this almost in the one sitting on a lovely day in the garden It flowed well and was very exciting even though I didn t think Marty got as much of a look in this time out This has been a great series and numbers 2 and 5 are my favourites.It was all set in a day as well so almost real time reading for me.I was, however, a tad disappointed at the silly mistakes Ticks used instead of tics, balling and not bawling which means something completely d [...]


    6. Good plot.If you re going to read this book because you like Marty Singer character don t He is not in this story much Story is about human trafficking, he is just for the ride with his friend to find his kidnapped sister Some animals, we call human use young innocent girls to satisfy themselves and make money Being a cat lover, I was worried about Pierre, nobody was taking care of him.


    7. This one isn t quite up to the standards of the first four, but it s still an excellent read It seems a little rushed and not as well developed as its predecessors, but it did no serious damage to the fact that this series remains one of my current favorites in the police mystery genre I m already looking forward to the next one.


    8. Best of the series I ve chewed up the entire series in less than a week and by far this is a good one I m looking forward to .



    9. I binge read books four and five in this series today, and felt that they were quite different in style Whilst book four was slow and cerebral, untangling a web of politics, corruption and deceit, The Wicked Flee had a much simple action feel to it Detective Chuck Rhee comes to Marty for help after his sister doesn t show up to a meeting, and the entire book takes part over the next day as it becomes a race against time to get Lucy back before it s too late There is no mystery over what s happ [...]


    10. Received from Give Away program.Loved the book, even though I dislike the subject matter Fast paced from the very beginning Didn t want to put the book down Easy read.Liked the good guy characters I m going to have to go back and read the other Marty Singer series.Have added Matthew Iden to my list of favorite authors.Definitely recommend




    11. It wasn t until I read James Thane s review and saw this This is a taut, noirish novel in which the action plays out in only a few hours, albeit very long hours, for the characters who are caught up in the story, that I realized the story covers only a few hours These few hours do seem very long, indeed So much happens This tale is dark It is also one of those grab you by the throat novels I couldn t put it down I love the Marty Singer series another thank you to Thane and this one, despite a pl [...]


    12. I chose to read an ARC of this book thanks to Netgalley for making it possiblethis was a good all round thriller it had plenty going on it to keep me reading It was well written and realistic although singer didnt appear very much in it


    13. Marty SingerI have become a Marty Singer fan This was not my favorite but it kept me reading to find out what the outcome would be.


    14. Marty Singer book 5Just like the other four books this one will not disappoint I missed having Amanda in this book Hopefully she will be included in the next one.


    15. Thoroughly enjoyed the Marty Singer character.Have read all the Singer books and this may have been the best Will miss thischaracter when I read the last book in the series.


    16. Note I received a free copy of the book from the author to read and review That did not affect my review.I did receive a free copy of the book from Mr iden, and I am happy that I did THE WICKED FLEE is exciting, fast paced and well written It s 310 pages flew by.I am also concurrently reading a rather heavyweight non fiction book and I turned to THE WICKED FLEE to relax, to wind down a bit into the evening Well, I certainly relaxed, reading through the pages as fast as I could from one now what [...]


    17. The wicked flee by Mathew Iden is a mystery and thriller and general fiction adult read.A late night knock on his door pulls retired DC homicide detective Marty Singer out of a sound sleep and drops him into a desperate hunt to find Lucy Rhee, the kidnapped sister of his friend, Chuck Rhee I really enjoyed this book I loved the story and the characters 4 I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book from netgalley.


    18. The Wicked Flee by Matthew Iden in the fifth in his Marty Singer series Although I enjoyed the first four, The Wicked Flee was disappointing but perhaps that s my fault, not Iden s Like the first four, this tale is well written and filled with just the right about of action For me, however, there are two aspects that generate disappointment 1 The story revolves around prostitution and the kidnapping and delivery of a 16 year old girl to a man who will use her, then dump her body in the trash 2 S [...]


    19. I received this book for free through a giveaway This was the first book I read by Matthew Iden and it will not be my last The Wicked Flee touches a subject that is happening in this day and age Detective Marty Singer is awaken by his friend Chuck Chuck is on the hunt for his kidnapped sister, Lucy Although Lucy was kidnapped as part of a human trafficking ring, the person responsible has another nefarious plan, to make his own money his own way Lucy is well trained by her brother in what to do [...]


    20. I m a big fan of police procedurals, but only when the main character grabs me In Book 1 Marty Singer spiraled into depression when he was forced to retire from the Washington DC police department because of colorectal cancer With his wife s death, compulsory retirement, and poisonous treatment looming, he has just about given up Then a young woman forces her way into his life by begging, insisting, and pleading that he help her because of his connection to an old case involving her mother Suffi [...]


    21. This is a good fast paced cops and bad guys adventure about a streetwise current cop and his retired ex cop friend working off the books The younger cop s sister has been abducted by a white slaver and they are frantically trying to find her during a hectic 2 3 day period The third player is a rookie female state trooper who is unwittingly working in parallel on the same case There is lots of frantic action and a few unexpected twists Action is the name of the game and little is devoted to chara [...]


    22. Not up to prior standardsOr maybe I just don t know Virginia or D.C well enough to spot poor research I ve enjoyed the previous books, but the author s missed cues on Maryland were much too distracting for me to enjoy this one Maryland State Police wear brown uniforms, and take home cruisers are limited to 25 miles of home or barracks The Waterloo barracks cover only Howard Count Frederick and Hagerstown have their own barracks While Iden apologized to Breezewood, PA, in an afternote, he really [...]


    23. I read this on my kindle a copy I received a free copy for an honest review.I have not read any of Matthew Iden s books previously but I loved this one Marty Singers younger sister goes missing and he and his friend Chuck set out to find her.This books delves into the world of trafficking and is full of suspense From the very beginning we know what has happened to Lucy, Marty s sister and the chase is on to get to her before she is moved on Marty and Chuck also encounter a policewoman who is als [...]


    24. The Wicked Flee completely blew me away The storyline was action packed and full of suspense Once I started reading, I couldn t stop Although I won this book in a giveaway, I am so glad I read it I love the story I haven t read any of the previous books in the A Marty Singer Series , but I ll definitely read Sarah was a great character She was quite intuitive, head strong and bold She rushed in and didn t stop when crap got real Marty was a bad ass lead He knew how to face a situation and deal [...]


    25. I won this book in a drawing.It s a fairly standard abduction thriller A young girl is kidnapped, sold to a millionaire serial killer child molester Her cop brother is in pursuit, along with the guy who this series is supposed to feature The star of the series really doesn t do a whole lot, and is completely superfluous to the book In these cases, it s usually better just to make it a standalone, or even a spin off novel, rather than billing it as part of a series Competent, not especially expli [...]


    26. A Riveting Thriller I read this book so quickly Read all 5 of the Marty Singer Mysteries in a row This one had a lot of action, great plot, scary, creepy bad guys, and lots of interesting facts about human trafficking.Can t find a better mystery series Hope you enjoy these books as much as I have I love a good mystery


    27. I received this arc from Netgalley Having read all of the previous books in this series, I feel that this one was a bit predictable Marty Singer seems to take the back seat in this one Overall an okay read.
