Dead Line by Brian McGrory

Lauded by critics and Washington insiders alike for his debut novel The Incumbent, and its national bestselling sequel, The Nominee, Brian McGrory returns with the third sensational thriller featuring intrepid newspaperman Jack Flynn.

For his entire career, Jack Flynn has been like a heat-seeking missile in pursuit of news, with the exclusive goal of splashing his revelations on the pages of his beloved Boston Record. But now he comes across a story that might be the hardest — and maybe the last — of his life.

Jack is the recipient of an explosive tip involving Toby Harkins, the fugitive leader of an Irish mafia and estranged son of none other than Boston Mayor Daniel Harkins. Toby also happens to be the prime suspect in the heist of a dozen priceless treasures from the Gardner Museum — the largest unsolved art theft in American history. But no sooner does the morning paper hit the newsstands with Jack's shocking story than a beautiful young woman, the mysterious whistleblower, is shot in the head. As Jack digs into a conspiracy that winds from the back rooms of City Hall to the genteel parlors of proper Boston, he must come to terms with the fact that he has caused an innocent's death, and that the FBI may be using him in a deadly game of cat and mouse in which the players involved aren't nearly who or what they seem. As a result, Jack begins to question the integrity of the job to which he has devoted his adult life.

Engaging, suspenseful, and crackling with newsroom energy, Dead Line once again offers the kind of explosive action that's all in a day's work for Jack Flynn, a hero whose dogged search for truth may not last him until press time.

I picked this book up partially because it was set in Boston where I live but it is a great story that anyone who is a fan of Michael Connolly, Linda Fairstein or Robert Crais should appreciate. Jack Flynn as the central character is a deeply caring and complicated person. As a reporter for a local Boston newspaper you get a good feel for his strengths and weaknesses through his eyes as a reporter. You also ride the ups and downs in his very complicated personal life which intersects very neatly through the main plot of the story. The dialog is witty, quick and believable. The supporting cast is a great bunch of quirky, unique and memorable people. Jack's relationships are all complicated- whether it is the women in his life or men. You definitley feel like cheering for this guy and look forward to the next Jack Flynn book.
