About the Author

Gerry Boyle began his writing career working for newspapers—a start he calls the best training ground ever. After attending Colby College, he knocked around at various jobs, including stints as a roofer, a postman, and a manuscript reader at a big New York publisher. He began his newspaper career in the paper mill town of Rumford, Maine. There was a lot of small-town crime in Rumford and Gerry would later mine his Rumford time for his first novel, Deadline After a few months he moved on to the Morning Sentinel in Waterville, where editors gave him a thrice-weekly column and he wrote about stuff he saw in police stations and courtrooms in the towns and cities of Maine. All the while he was also typing away on a Smith-Corona electric typewriter, writing Deadline which marked his debut s a novelist in 1993. Since finishing Deadline, he has written eight additional Jack McMorrow stories with a tenth, Once Burned, scheduled for release in May 2015.

What People are Saying About This

James Finney Boylan

Part detective, part humorist, part novelist, [Boyle] shows us the real lives of real Mainers with wit, insight, and love.

Susan Kenney

I can't believe that Deadline is Gerry Boyle's first novel; the book is chock-full of all the right things a mystery -- or any other work of fiction -- needs: realistic, rounded characters, local color, action, suspense, even romance, in just the right mixture.
