Home Body (Jack McMorrow Mystery #8) (Paperback)
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.
About the Author
Gerry Boyle began his writing career in newspapers, which he calls the "best training ground ever." After graduating from Colby College, Gerry knocked around, taking stints as a roofer, a postman, and a manuscript reader in New York. However, Boyle soon realized that he preferred his adopted northern state to the bustle of Manhattan. His first reporting job was in the paper mill town of Rumford, Maine. After a few months, 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, published in 1993. He continues to write gritty, authentic mysteries featuring his signature character, Jack McMorrow.
