Publisher's Summary

Hoping for a fresh start and a clean slate, McMorrow has a new home in the cheerful-sounding town of Prosperity, Maine. But nothing ever goes easy for Jack, so when a freelance gig leads him to a teen mother and some high school hooligans, it's not child's play. A girl is murdered and Jack's investigation places him squarely in the killer's sights.

Love Jack McMorrow

I started with the later books in this series so the Jack McMorrow that I was introduced to is just coming into himself with this listen. That was nice to see. No spoilers though.

This mystery was a bit of a heart breaker. A young girl gets pregnant and, trusting the adults in her world, gives the kid up for adoption. Her mind gets changed (by Jack?) and then stuff happens.

Jack's quest to figure out the stuff was bittersweet.

The narrator is incredibly well-suited for this material. He brings the real and the weird to Jack (Jack is a bit of a jokester) and that kept me engaged with the listen.

I don't know which book this is in the series but I know how good things will be!

Another exceptional McMarrow

The pursuit of truth is what drives all investigators. Jack is relentless in this task, not for the dollar, but because he needs to ensure that it is known. I don't have this level of drive, but because the author does his job well, I understand Jack's motivation.
I love reading these and look forward to enjoying the next one.

Holy Batman

Who knew that just writing an article on teenage pregnancy could become a murder mystery especially in the rural town of "Prosperity" Maine, which has little prosperity. This is my first Jack McMorrow Mystery and will read Book 1, which might help me with understanding the characters more, however, I did enjoy the book and the book does make you think of teenage pregnancy, as well as does the mother allow the cycle to continue or does she think of more than just herself and think of what might be best for the child and giving the child opportunities that she knows that she never could in "Prosperity" Maine.

The narrator did a good job, however, there were portions of the book where it was stop, go, stop and go and the reading was not a fluid, natural path...almost like this first the first time reading the book, but all in all was pretty good.

Jack McMorrow is Very Entertaining!

This was so entertaining, very much due to the character of Jack McMorrow. Very likable with his dry humor, the book had me smiling unexpectedly quite often.

It also contains a complex, twisting mystery. While researching a freelance article, one of his interviewees is murdered. That takes his investigation from a lifestyle story to a homicide investigation. He isn’t law enforcement, but he is most definitely involved.

Great characters, fast paced, and an intriguing plot. It’s a good one!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review. You can find my full review at Mystery Suspense Reviews.

Breaking the Cycle

Jack McMorrow, a reporter, is now living in the rural mid-coast Maine town of Prosperity. He is asked by a former colleague to write a story on teen pregnancy for a magazine. He manages to contact one teen, Missy Hewitt, who gave up her child for adoption. Missy decides that she wants her child back and asks to meet with Jack about this. The day after she phones Jack she's found dead and he finds himself at the center of a murder mystery. The story leads to many clues and fascinating characters. I quite enjoyed Jack’s sardonic wit and found the narration good. I look forward to the next in the series.
