Cover Story

  Author:   Gerry Boyle    
  Publisher:  Islandport Press

It’s been seven years since Jack McMorrow left New York for small-town Maine. His years of stringing stories and murders together in the backwoods has been an adventure, sure, but they have also put a big dent in his back account. In this, the sixth installment of the popular Jack McMorrow series, McMorrow is hired back at The New York Times to cover his old Metro beat. Unsure at first, Jack soon regains his journalistic footing and settles into the incessant hustle and flow of the city. When the mayor is murdered in a hotel restroom, Jack thinks he is working on the ultimate cover story. Instead, Jack is about to become the prime murder suspect in his own newspaper story. Called an outstanding crime novel by Booklist when it was first published in 2000, Cover Story is Boyle at his best. The redesigned edition includes a 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.
