Straw Man

  Author:   Gerry Boyle    
  Publisher:  Islandport Press

When worlds collide, few are spared the collateral damage – least of all crime reporter Jack McMorrow, who has learned the hard way that trouble often blooms in the cracks of human relationships. In this, the latest installment of the popular Jack McMorrow mystery series, veteran author Gerry Boyle, takes his readers into territory all-too-familiar from the daily headlines: illegal gun sales, culture clashes between old and new, cyberbullying, and random acts of violence that pose a real threat to even the closest of communities. Prosperity, Maine is no longer the refuge from the real world that it once was, and Jack, and his wife, Roxanne, will be forced to face their most destructive enemies yet – each other.

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.
