Publisher's Summary

The Dread Line: the latest Liam Mulligan novel from award-winning author Bruce DeSilva.
Since he got fired in spectacular fashion from his newspaper job last year, former investigative reporter Liam Mulligan has been piecing together a new life - one that straddles both sides of the law. He's getting some part-time work with his friend McCracken's detective agency. He's picking up beer money by freelancing for a local news website. And he's looking after his semi-retired mobster friend's bookmaking business.
But Mulligan still manages to find trouble. He's feuding with a cat that keeps leaving its kills on his porch. He's obsessed with a baffling jewelry heist. And he's enraged that someone in town is torturing animals. All this keeps distracting him from a big case that needs his full attention. The New England Patriots, shaken by a series of murder charges against a star player, have hired Mulligan and McCracken to investigate the background of a college athlete they're thinking of drafting. At first, the job seems routine, but as soon as they begin asking questions, they get push-back. The player, it seems, has something to hide - and someone is willing to kill to make sure it remains secret.

Missing Jeff Woodman

Would you consider the audio edition of The Dread Line to be better than the print version?

Didn't read the print version.

What three words best describe Jim Frangione’s performance?

Just okay. There was nothing wrong per se with the performance and I'm sure it would have been fine if Jim Frangione had narrated the Liam Mulligan books from the beginning, but Jeff Woodman's is the voice I associate with Mulligan and so the narration was missing a certain je ne sai quoi.

Any additional comments?

This was a fine addition to the Mulligan series, I just hope that Jeff Woodman is available for the next book.

Good Old Fashioned PI romp

Mulligan turns from reporter to private eye using his old newspaper connections. But with a neat twist, he has a finger in some illegal stuff along the way. The author continues to do a fine job with character development and the conversational interactions are well written and believable. Really, a fine light weight way to speed the miles or the chores as you listen to Mulligans adventures. Caution. Although this one can stand on its own, its more fun if you read the books in order as you will be familiar with Mulligan's world. Well worth the credit.
