Borderline

  Author:   Gerry Boyle    
  Publisher:  Islandport Press

On a travel story about Benedict Arnold, Jack McMorrow traces the route of the infamous historical figure up the Kennebec River into Quebec, Canada. When a man fails to rejoin his bus tour in the Northern Maine town of Scanesett, Jack makes a pit stop there to help authorities find him and soon finds himself entangled with a bunch of lethal small-town hoods who make bad sport of the weak and defenseless. Threatened, beaten up, and forced into a terrifying game of redneck hide-and-seek, McMorrow faces his most ruthless criminals yet. This, the fifth installment of Islandport’s updated and revised paperback and e-book editions of the bestselling McMorrow mystery series, takes its readers across state lines into a world of mistaken identities, traitorous dealings, and a dangerous hunt for a man no one seems to know much about. Originally published in 1998, Islandport edition includes new introduction by the author.

Gerry Boyle began his writing career in newspapers, an industry he calls the "best training ground ever." After graduating from Colby College, Gerry knocked around, working as a roofer, a postman, and then as a manuscript reader in New York. However, Boyle soon realized he preferred rural northern Maine to the bustle of Manhattan. His first reporting job was in the paper mill town of Rumford, Maine, before he moved on to the (Waterville) Morning Sentinel, where editors learned quickly that he worked best when left to his own devices. And Boyle learned that the line between upstanding citizen and outlaw is a fine one, indeed. His experiences as a reporter inspired his first novel, Deadline, in 1993. He continues to write gritty, authentic mysteries featuring his signature character, Jack McMorrow.
