Matthew Snyder is the senior detective in Lansing, Michigan. He began his career in Bedlam as a street cop and worked his way to detective. He finally left Bedlam in 1991, shortly after a string of murders committed by a psychopath known as the Knife’s Edge Killer. He was glad to get out of the Bedford/Lamrose area to the much quieter streets of the capital. He’s spent the waning years of his career training new detectives.

Matthew is a large African-American man who enjoys eating. His wife of 40 years, Anne, a retired elementary school teacher, cooks the soul food of her native New Orleans with gusto. She’s recently changed many of her recipes after Matthew was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. She’s really made an effort to clean up his diet, but it’s a hard sell. They were never able to conceive children and this has left an emptiness in both their lives.

Matthew and Anne have saved for years to buy their dream home in the country of Belize. It’s really a paradise on earth and they are both excited for Matthew to finally retire this year. They were very dismayed when Matthew was assigned to a case in Bedlam. Matthew thought he had seen the last of that hellish place.
