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.

Great narration

crime-fiction, newspapers, noir, maine, small-town, law-enforcement

The ME says it's drowning with hypothermia, most likely accidental. But why was the insecure middle aged photographer from the newspaper even out there since he had no car and it was a decent walk from town? Jack believes that he is the only one snooping around and invested in the death of this small town photographer with no family ties. What happens next is very important.
Loved it!
I have the audio and Michael A Smith is the voice actor who brings Jack and the other characters to life and makes it hard to stop listening.
