Review:

Gerry Boyle's uncanny eye for the dangers that can lie just beneath the sleepy surfaces of rural Maine makes his fourth book about freelance journalist Jack McMorrow a marvelously mordant mystery. It's not hard to swallow the back story that the impulsive McMorrow gave up a job with the New York Times to savor the charms and rigors of northern New England; he takes the same kinds of chances here as he gets involved with a strange bunch of advocates for legal marijuana. More McMorrow memoirs in paperback include Bloodline, Deadline and Lifeline.

About the Author:

Like many crime novelists, Gerry Boyle began his writing career in newspapers―the best training ground ever. After Colby College, he knocked around, including stints as a roofer, a postman, and a manuscript reader at a big New York publisher. His first reporting job was with a weekly in the paper mill town of Rumford, Maine. After a few months it was on to the (Waterville, Maine) Morning Sentinel, where editors learned early on that he worked best when left to his own devices. He wrote about stuff he saw in police stations, courtrooms, in the towns and cities of Maine. Deadline came out in 1993. With an assist from Robert B. Parker, he landed a top-flight literary agent and the books came steadily after that. McMorrow and Boyle grew up together, though at different rates.
