Overview

"Running for the rest of your life isn’t a plan ..."

The last time Mara Cunningham saw her older brother Jimmy was ten years ago, when he jumped bail after robbing a bank in Salem. Tonight, he showed up on surveillance footage at the scene of a police officer's murder.

Now every cop in Boston wants his head. Every gangster in the city wants the money he stole. And Mara wants answers to the questions Jimmy ran from. But she'll have to find him first.

Too bad Jimmy Cunningham has plans of his own ...

TOO HARD TO HANDLE is the second book in the Mara Cunningham series. It follows Boston's most dangerous photographer as she solves mysteries, uncovers corruption and busts some heads. It's dark, gritty and action-packed.

Praise for the Mara Cunningham series:

"Strong, flawed, independent female lead [...] ? Check. Political intrigue and conspiracy? Check. Cast of characters that get just enough page time to whet your appetite for future stories? Checkmate. Somebody option this quick." - Jeremy Lott, Splice Today

    Terrific, well paced and real Boston crime thriller

    I greatly enjoyed Perich's first Mara Cunningham novel, Too Close To Miss, and was eager to read this as soon as it came out. It did not disappoint. It's a bit slower out of the gate, but once it clicks into gear, you won't put it down. Mara Cunningham, already a great protagonist, gets more fully developed here, and the flashback scenes to her childhood are as engaging as mystery that unfolds in the present.
