Best-Selling Crime Novelist Ace Atkins says “The Dread Line” Is Highly Recommended!

dread lineThanks to Ace Atkins, New York Times best-selling author of the fine Colin Quinn crime novels and the writer who has taken over Robert B. Parker’s Spenser series, for this shout-out about The Dread Line, the latest in my series of hardboiled crime novels.

Here’s what he had to say:

“I’ve been a big fan of Bruce DeSilva’s excellent Liam Mulligan books from the start. How could I not enjoy stories about a wisecracking newspaper reporter uncovering corruption and taking down the bad guys?

 “DeSilva’s fifth Mulligan book, The Dread Line, definitely brings back the glory days of ‘newspaper noir; with a modern story about pro football. Highly recommended.”

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.
