My thanks to Scott MacKay of Rhode Island’s National Public Radio affiliate for including my latest crime novel, The Dread Line, on the list of his favorite reads in 2016.

Scott, a fine reporter and avid reader, had this to say previously when he reviewed the book: “Bruce DeSilva is to Rhode Island what James Lee Burke is to Louisiana. . . . A rollicking read.”

The Dread Line is the fifth book in the Edgar Award-winning series of hardboiled crime novels by Bruce DeSilva. In it, 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 the 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.
