About this title

From Booklist:

Oleksiw's series featuring Police Chief Joe Silva (Friends and Enemies, 2000) has a lot going for it. First, its protagonist: deep--thinking, big-hearted Joe, whose dark job has not turned him into a cynic. In addition, the series' setting is remarkably well drawn: Mellingham is a small Massachusetts coastal town full of hardworking citizens who run family businesses and try to keep their kids safe from drugs and other "big city" vices threatening to invade the countryside. Finally, readers will luxuriate in Oleksiw's lush, evocative prose, a rarity in mystery fiction. In this outing, Joe is investigating the connection between young Ron Faroli, who overdosed on drugs, and his friend Miles Stine, who supposedly fell out of a window to his death. Meanwhile, Gwen, Joe's girlfriend, is worried about her young son, Phillip, who may be hanging out with the druggy crowd. Oleksiw does a fine job of portraying small-town life, with its inherent fears, hopes, and tragedies. This is a series that, once discovered, will become required reading for mystery fans who straddle the fence between cozy and hard-boiled. Jenny McLarin
