“The Dread Line” Is a Crime Noir Classic — The Providence Journal

dread lineThe Providence Journal calls The Dread Line, my new hard-boiled Liam Mulligan novel, “a ribald mix of Carl Hiaasen and Elmore Leonard, with a bit of Donald Westlake thrown in for good measure.”

The Rhode Island newspaper’s review goes on to call the book “a masterpiece of style” and “a classic of postmodern crime noir.”

Gee, thanks.  You can read the entire text of the review on the paper’s website by clicking here.

In the new novel, the New England Patriots, still shaken by a series of murder charges against their star tight end, Aaron Hernandez, (true story) have hired Mulligan and McCracken (not a true story) to investigate the background of a college player they are thinking of drafting. At first, the job seems routine, but as soon as they begin asking questions, they get push-back. The player has something to hide, and someone is willing to kill to make sure it remains secret.
