With is fine stand-alone novels such as Gun Church and his remarkable Moe Prager private eye series, Reed Farrel Coleman has long been one of the best mystery writers in the business. But since he was selected to continue the late Robert B. Parker’s best-selling Jesse Stone series, Reed is being discovered by thousands of new readers.
His latest Jesse Stone novel is titled Debt To Pay, and with the recently published Where It Hurts, he’s launched a remarkable new series featuring former Long Island police officer Gus Murphy.
I snapped the photo of him reading my new crime novel when we appeared together in Arizona last month. You can learn more about Reed and his work here.
In The Dread Line, the New England Patriots, still shaken by a series of murder charges against one of their star players (true story) have hired Liam Mulligan, the hero of my novels, to investigate the background of a college star they are thinking of drafting. At first, the job seems routine, but as soon as he starts asking questions, he gets push-back. The player has something to hide, and someone is willing to kill to make sure it remains secret.
To order The Dread Line, the fifth in the Edgar Award-winning series of hardboiled crime novels by Bruce DeSilva, you can choose from a list of independent or chain online bookstores here.
