Overview

In this sequel to Norah McClintock’s gritty mystery Dooley Takes the Fall, Ryan Dooley continues to struggle against circumstances that would defeat most teenagers, let alone kids who have been in serious trouble with the law. Dooley (as he prefers to be known) was involved in a break and enter a few years ago, served his time, and is now living with his hard-nosed uncle, a former cop determined that the boy will find a way to lead a blameless and useful life from henceforth. But there are threads that still link Dooley to his former life of aimless criminality, and one of them – with the affable Jeffie, a sometime drug dealer and one-time buddy – threatens to bring him down, especially when Jeffie turns up dead, while still owing money to Dooley.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up—Ryan Dooley has a troubled past. However, following his release from jail, he begins living with his uncle, a retired police officer who is determined to keep him on track. Just when it appears that the teen is on the road to success, a mysterious murder and an old friend send elements of Dooley's past soaring back into his life. After being questioned by the police, Dooley is scared his answers may land him back in jail and decides to unravel the truth himself. His investigation reveals hidden aspects about his past, but more importantly facilitates personal growth, transforming him from a troubled teen into a respectable young man. Through his narration, which includes some strong language and sex scenes, characters are developed gradually along with the plot, creating a long list of suspects. Homicide Related goes beyond traditional mysteries, as Dooley purposely omits critical details, keeping readers guessing and the plot moving rapidly.—Mary-Brook J. Todd, The Ensworth School, Nashville, TN

    Great read for older teens

    Ryan Dooley is just trying to do the right thing—staying in school, staying out of trouble, working his job at the video store, keeping his uncle off his back. When Jeffie shows up and asks for a loan, Dooley realizes that the line between his old life, when he was incarcerated, and his new life is very thin. A woman from far in his past surfaces and once again Dooley might have gotten himself on the wrong side of the law. This sequel stands nicely on its own. Language and sex content (none described) make this more appropriate for older teens. Reviewed in School Library Journal.
