Semifinalist Best Indie Books of 2012, The Kindle Book Reviews

BookRooster.com Reviewers' Picks 2013

It's just another ho-hum Christmas party until a murder lands private eye Rick Levine, nicknamed "The Zen Man," in the slammer on first-degree charges...

Released on bond, Rick and his girlfriend Laura have 30 days to find the real killer. In the course of their investigations, they dig for dirt among Denver's shady legal backrooms to its tony corporate centers. Dodging bullets, a kidnapping, trumped-up charges and the FBI's unwanted intervention, Rick and Laura continue tracking key suspects who have motive...eventually learning that true redemption begins at home.
One Reviewer Notes:
Great humor. Great dialogue. Author did a great job of establishing the relationship between Rick and Laura. It never overshadowed the mystery, but it made the book truly multi-dimensional. Fans of Janet Evanovich (if she woke up one morning and took on the persona of a recovering addict/Deadhead) and Nick and Nora Charles might enjoy this story.
Dorien Kelly, New York Times best-selling author

One Reviewer Notes:
What I didn't expect were the touches of romantic language, as delicate and erotic as a glance by Humphrey Bogart from under his hat. I also didn't expect the humorous touches in what is essentially one man's life-or-death fight to save his soul, his business and the love of his life.

Just as washed-up criminal defense attorney, life-long Deadhead (nickname “The Zen Man”), and current PI Rick Levine decides to get relicensed as a lawyer, he’s charged with killing one and ends up in the slammer with a half-mil bail.

Released on bond, Rick and his girlfriend Laura have 30 days to find the real killer. In the course of their investigations, they dig for dirt among Denver’s shady legal backrooms to its tony corporate centers. Dodging bullets, a kidnapping, trumped-up charges and the FBI’s unwanted intervention, Rick and Laura continue tracking key suspects who have motive…eventually learning that true redemption begins at home.

“I loved every single word of The Zen Man!”
~ Delores Fossen, USA Today Best-selling Author

“Move over Sam Spade, Nick and Nora; make room for a Denver who-dun-it, Colleen Collins’s The Zen Man. Brilliant and fast-paced writing. I couldn’t put it down.”
~ Donnell Ann Bell,
 Award-Winning Author of The Past Came Hunting

“The Zen Man is an homage and update of Dashiell Hammett’s Nick and Nora Charles, a well-paced mix of banter, action, and New Age philosophizing.”
~ Gerald So, owner-moderator of DetecToday for fans of the private eye genre

Reader Comments
“I’d read one of Colleen Collins’s romance novels from many years ago, and I loved how she could write fun, fast-paced novels. Have also checked out her nonfiction books on private investigations, so I knew she was knowledgeable about the real-world of private eyes. She’s brought all of that and more to The Zen Man. A book filled with thrills and chills and laughter. A mystery that doesn’t hold back its punches. A pace that kept me turning pages. But my favorite part of the book? The main characters: Rick and Laura. Flawed, complex, real…yet they hold onto a wry view of the world (not unlike Nick and Nora). Great read.” – Dana B., Amazon Reviewer, 5 Stars

“What a delightful book! Now, clean and sober, former lawyer Rick Levine thinks he’s on the right path to getting back his law license, but then he’s arrested for murder. The journey to clear his name is not only fast paced and a thrilling ride, it’s fun! Colleen Collins makes all the right moves in this who-dun-it, and I loved the characters, especially Rick and Laura. You won’t be disappointed with this one.” – Amazon Reviewer, 5 Stars

From The Author
Besides being a multi-published writer, I’m also a private investigator. The Zen Man features a man-and-woman PI team, which is similar to my own life (I co-own an investigations agency with my husband).

I’ll state upfront that I tend to read darker mystery novels, so I wasn’t quite sure how I’d like The Zen Man (I’d read somewhere that it was a mystery with romantic elements). But this author hooked me. Well-developed mystery, complex/sympathetic characters, and plenty of grit. I still can’t get over “the dart scene” (won’t say more-don’t want to spoil it for readers). A highly recommended page turner that has me wanting more of the Zen Man. 5 stars.  – “ilovebookstoo”
