Gerry Boyle, the author of Lifeline, has spent most of the past fifteen years wandering around Maine, mostly in small mill towns and cities in the central part of the state. Born in Chicago, he was raised in Rhode Island. He went to Maine from Rhode Island in 1974 to attend Colby College. Boyle left the state to work as a letter carrier in Providence, R.I., and for a brief stint in book publishing in New York, but returned to Maine to work as a newspaper reporter, editor, and columnist. Boyle's column now appears in the Central Maine Morning Sentinel in Waterville and the Kennebec Journal in Augusta. The column tells about people in courts and police custody, on the streets and stoops, or just caught in the throes of everyday life. He has received many awards from Maine and New England press associations. He lives in an early 19th century house in a historic village in Central Maine with his wife, Mary, their three children, a bunch of cats and a dog. His previous mystery novels, Bloodline and Deadline, earned a number of glowing reviews.… (mais)

The ME says it's drowning with hypothermia, most likely accidental. But why was the insecure middle aged photographer from the newspaper even out there since he had no car and it was a decent walk from town? Jack believes that he is the only one snooping around and invested in the death of this small town photographer with no family ties. What happens next is very important.
Loved it!
I have the audio and Michael A Smith is the voice actor who brings Jack and the other characters to life and makes it hard to stop listening. ( )

This was free for Kindle, and, based on the blurb, I picked it thinking a mystery with a writer/reporter as the central character might be interesting, but I couldn't get into it. I didn't care for the main character (Jack McMorrow). Perhaps it is just that this was written prior to the early 1990s and stories were different then, but I found I wasn't willing to wait to find out what was going on and read several chapters of boring prose about people from the town that I can't figure out what they do etc. ( )

Ok stories - I just found them hard to get into so I did not read more. I like most mystery readers are starved for great reads and a series to get into- this was not it for me. However having said that I don't care for the book there are many now in the series so some people must like them. Maybe I should revisit them and try again. For mystery stories with photographers I prefer E.C. Ayers - Tony Lowell or Tom Corcoran's Alex Rutledge.

They laid Arthur on a green canvas tarp, so close to the crowd that a few people tried to back away but couldn't because the people at the rear were still pushing forward to see.
