Home Body

  Author:   Gerry Boyle    
  Publisher:  Islandport Press

There ain’t no rest for the wicked… In Home Body, the eighth Jack McMorrow Mystery, Jack has reformed his bad boy ways and settled into seeming domestic tranquility. But the quiet life is short-lived when Jack rescues a homeless teen from a brutal gang beating. This gesture rewards him with yet another descent into violence, murder, and the dark underworld of at-risk kids living on the street. As Jack prepares for the birth of his child, his efforts to save somebody else’s child fail, and he must track down a stalker. Who is the predator and who is the prey in a world where no one can be trusted? It’s a high stakes game of hide-and-seek–one that Jack can’t afford to lose.

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.
