He was the Lab's commanding officer for three years and also commanded the Eighth Precinct in the Patrol Division. He resides on Long Island and in North Carolina with his wife Lorraine. When he is not writing, Henry enjoys golf, traveling and visiting with family and friends. Danny Boy (2009) is the first novel in a series featuring NYMPD Detective Daniel Boyland. The second is Cases Closed (2012) and the third is Mommy, Mommy (2013). A new series began in January 2013 featuring NYMPD Police Officer Harry Cassidy with the publication of Cassidy's Corner. The Last Crusade followed in June 2014 and The Romen Society in March 2015. Portraits in Blue, a collection of fourteen stories was published in September 2015. The judge in the Writer's Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards commented on Cases Closed as "...a prime example of a well-written mystery and suspense novel by someone who knows how the system works. From the first page to the last, readers will be riveted to the story and not be able to put it down." Check out my website www.henryhack.com for more information.

Danny Boy based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
I loved the main character in this book and can see this becoming a series. It's very well written and holds your attention to the end. Any fan of detective fiction will get attached to this detective and his cast of characters.
Every now and then I deviate from the mainstream authors and take a chance on a new and upcoming one. Thank god I did! I happened to be perusing new author reviews online and found several for Henry Hack. So I figured why not give him a try. Unknown to me that I would be locked up all weekend reading this book from front to back. My eyes couldn't leave the pages! A very well-written, gripping book. I won't get into details, but I can assure you will not be disappointed. I will be the first in line when his next book hits the shelves! A great change of pace and new favorite to add to my collection. Highly Recommended!
