Publisher's Summary

Jack is back in this dynamic re-release of best-selling crime writer Gerry Boyle’s first novel.
Meet Jack McMorrow, a hard-hitting crime reporter for the New York Times, now living in the backwoods of Maine, near the paper plant in Rumford. Jack's there to run the local paper, but when a unpopular photographer is found drowned in a nearby canal, Jack gets drawn into a complicated game that has kept members of the town silenced and in fear for their lives.
Maine may be the place where life is as it should be, but McMorrow finds out staying alive may be harder than he thought.

Jack is the anti-hero we all need

I started this series with one of the later books and had to go back to the beginning. Jack McMorrow is a great character. He has morals aplenty but lacks basic common sense at times. He's scrappy and resilient and I just adore him.

In this first book in the series, Jack is just beginning to flex his "not on my watch" muscles. Bad things happen, good people let them happen, and Jack gets annoyed/involved. This time it's a photographer on his newspaper staff who is found dead and no one, besides Jack, seems to want to know why.

I didn't figure out the whodunnit so the ending was one heck of a shocker!

I loved the narration in this novel. Smith takes extra care with his performance, even using special audio when characters are talking on the phone. It's the always the little things that make a story work and Smith pays attention to the details

I'm looking forward to book two.
