Publisher’s Weekly Review
“Boyle’s intense, suspense-filled eighth book (after 2003’s Pretty Dead) to feature freelance journalist Jack McMorrow nicely captures the mood of rural Maine, where violence seethes beneath the placid surface of rock-strewn woods and decrepit small towns.”

about the author


Like many crime novelists, Gerry Boyle began his writing career in newspapers—a place he calls the best training ground ever. After attending Colby College, he knocked around at various jobs, including stints as a roofer, a postman, and a manuscript reader at a big New York publisher. He began his newspaper career in the paper mill town of Rumford, Maine. There was a lot of small-town crime in Rumford and Gerry would later mine his Rumford time for his first novel, Deadline. After a few months he moved on to the Morning Sentinel in Waterville, where editors gave him a thrice-weekly column. He wrote about the stuff he saw in police stations, courtrooms, and in the towns and cities of Maine. All the while he was also typing away on a Smith-Corona electric typewriter, writing Deadline which came out in 1993. Since Deadline, he has written eight additional Jack McMorrow stories with a 10th, Once Burned, scheduled for release in 2015. Read more at: http://www.islandportpress.com/gerry-boyle.html
