9780544226272: Third Rail: An Eddy Harkness Novel

"Third Rail gets off to a ripping start and never lets off the gas." —Jess Walter, author of Beautiful Ruins

At crime scenes, Eddy Harkness, the "Harvard Cop," is a human Ouija board, a brilliant young detective with a knack for finding the hidden something—cash, drugs, guns, bodies. Harkness's swift rise in an elite narcotics unit is derailed by the death of a young Red Sox fan in the chaos after a World Series win, a death some camera-phone-wielding witnesses believe he could have prevented. Scapegoated, Eddy is exiled to his hometown, Nagog, just outside Boston, where he empties parking meters and struggles to redeem his disgraced family name.

But one night Harkness’s police-issued Glock disappears. Harkness starts a search—just as a string of fatal accidents in Nagog lead him to uncover a dangerous new smart drug, Third Rail. With only a plastic gun to protect him, Harkness begins a high-stakes investigation that sends him into the darkest corners of the city.

One of the most electrifying thrillers you'll read this year, Third Rail takes you deep into a gritty world of wronged heroes, corrupt politicians, and sinister kingpins, where your friends can't be trusted, a sleepy town breeds deadly crimes, and nothing ever happens by accident.

Product Description:

At crime scenes, Eddy Harkness is a human Ouija board, a brilliant young detective with a knack for finding the hidden something—cash, drugs, guns, bodies. But Eddy’s swift rise in an elite narcotics unit is derailed by the death of a Red Sox fan in the chaos of a World Series win, a death some camera-phone-wielding witnesses believe he could have prevented. Scapegoated, Eddy is exiled to his hometown just outside Boston, where he empties parking meters and struggles to redeem his disgraced family name.

Then one night Harkness’s police-issue Glock disappears. Unable to report the theft, Harkness starts a secret search—just as a string of fatal accidents lead him to uncover a new, dangerous smart drug, Third Rail. With only a plastic disc gun to protect him, Harkness begins a high-stakes investigation that leads him into the darkest corners of the city, where politicians and criminals intertwine to deadly effect.

With a textured sense of place, a nuanced protagonist, and a story that takes off from page one and culminates in a startling finale, Third Rail has all the elements of a breakout mystery success.

Book Description Houghton Mifflin. 1 Cloth(s), 2014. hard. Book Condition: New. At crime scenes, Eddy Harkness is a human Ouija board, a brilliant young detective with a knack for finding something hidden, be it cash, drugs, guns, or bodies. But in this debut novel of Rory Flynn's roller-coaster detective series, Harkness's swift rise in an elite narcotics unit is derailed by the death of a young Red Sox fan in the chaos after a World Series win, which some camera-wielding witnesses believe Harkness could have prevented. Busted down to the bottom of the department in the Boston suburb of Nagog, Harkness suffers the further indignity of having his gun stolen. But his search for it leads to his discovery of a dangerous new drug called Third Rail, and Harkness, eager to redeem himself, plunges into a corrupt and deadly web."[A] terrific debut . with impressive economy and stylish, sophisticated prose. Readers will want to see more of Flynn's gritty Boston—and Eddy Harkness."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)"Already compelling plot-wise, Third Rail also glows with the kind of sawdust-dry humor regarding Beantown, cops, and the darkest of urban underbellies that you might find at 3 a.m. in the back booth of a backstreet bar. With its gaggle of crazy-yet-riveting characters, its spare approach and its unflagging action, [the book is] the first in a promised series of Eddy Harkness novels."—Boston Globe 212.
