Family secrets will get out…and the ramifications get gruesome in Pretty Dead, the seventh Jack McMorrow Mystery. In this widely acclaimed addition to the popular series, veteran reporter Jack McMorrow and his partner Roxanne are sent to investigate the alleged physical abuse of a young daughter of a Boston blue blood family. The trappings of elite society threaten to sidetrack Jack’s investigation of the family’s misdoings, until a beautiful woman is found dead and the carefully constructed image of the family’s wealth and power begins to fray. Loyalties are tested and bonds are broken as Jack struggles with one of his most potent adversaries yet: his own ambition.

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.
