About the book: Hard Line, the final book in master crime writer Gerry Boyle’s long-running and award-winning Jack McMorrow series, concludes the two-book story arc he started in Robbed Blind with action ripped from current events as well as visits from old characters. McMorrow finds himself balancing a personal vendetta against the dangerous man who has abused a family friend with a lethal biker gang hunting for him and his crew. Not to mention fielding calls from reporters and dealing with growing suspicions about his daughter’s new teacher. In McMorrow’s last adventure, he must use his decades of talent in a stand-off between the forces of violent chaos and law and order-all set amidst the quiet pines, rough towns, and gray skies of rural Maine. As he faces down the end of everything he has held sacred-can Jack keep it all together without becoming the very thing he hates? If he even survives.

About the author: Gerry Boyle began his writing career in newspapers, an industry he has called the “best training ground ever.” His experiences as a reporter inspired his first novel, Deadline (1993), featuring his signature character Jack McMorrow. Boyle has now written fourteen gritty, authentic mysteries featuring McMorrow, who is now one of the most famous and popular recurring literary characters in Maine.
