From Publishers Weekly

From Publishers Weekly. Newspaper reporter Jack Flynn, last seen in McGrory's Dead Line (2004), investigates a series of contemporary murders that parallel the terrifying Boston Strangler slayings of the 1960s in the author's less than convincing fourth thriller. Somewhat improbably, Flynn must begin by probing the older case and the debate over whether the confessed strangler, Albert DeSalvo, was actually guilty. In the novel's reality, the senior Bay State senator isn't Ted Kennedy but a prosecutor who made his reputation on the DeSalvo case and who's.

My interest in the Boston Strangler case was first agitated back in 1999 when I sat in the living room of a wonderful old Boston cop named Jack Barry who had just retired after fifty-three years on the job. Decades after the last murder, he could sti.

He's only written 4 books, but all are very good. Anyone familiar with the Boston area would find his novels particularly interesting.

Dead Line is the third entry in Brian McGrory's Jack Flynn series. It's every bit as good as the two earlier novels, The Incumbent and The Nominee, and that's saying a lot.

This time out the extremely likeable Mr. Flynn finds himself embroiled in a very interesting case that pushes his skills as a newspaper reporter to their limit. Early in the narrative, a young attorney named Hilary Kane is murdered, presumably because she has uncovered new information about a brazen, 13 year old multimillion dollar art heist that has remained unsolved. The case assumes political undertones once Toby Harkins, the son of Boston's mayor, Dan Harkins is implicated in the theft.

There's plenty of action as Jack's frantic search to find Hilary Kane's murderer takes him to Rome and Paris and subsequently back to Boston. His devotion to the case makes him a target and on more than one occasion, he finds himself in mortal danger. No matter how harrowing the situation, Jack never abandons his very appealing, largely self-deprecating sense of humor.

Dead Line also contains a number of interesting subplots which serve to add substance to Jack's persona by exploring his relationships with other characters. Three such characters are his girlfriend Elizabeth, his pet dog Baker and his coworker Vinny. Their presence helps the reader appreciate Jack Flynn in all his three dimensional complexity.

Another solid 4 star effort featuring the thoroughly entertaining Jack Flynn. Dead Line is an engaging thriller written with plenty of good natured wit. Read it.

In this character driven political murder mystery, hero Newpaper reporter Jack Flyn comes of as an introspective and often funny guy. This is a well written story with a few problems. One is that I sorta knew in the right beginning who the bad guy was. If I tell you why, it will be a total spoiler for anyone who cares to read this book.

Jack connects the Mayor's son is involved in the heist of several priceless paintings from the Gardner Museum with the murder of a young woman winds up dead in a parking garage. His fear is that beautiful Hillary Kane's untimely death was caused by the story he wrote about the heist.

With the help of obsessive compulsive editor Martin and slobish, overeating reporter and collegue Mongillo (who turns out to be an art lover - surprise, surprise) Jack begins investigating while in the throes of being dumped by his reporter girlfriend as he tries to outrun the ghosts of his dead wife and new born daughter.

I'd say the novel was heavy handed with the guilt and introspection. Jack has a pension for examining his emotional navel. It slowed the story down. Also some of the law enforcement officials and routines were not very believable. But it was well written and a good read.

My favorite investigative reporter is back, this time solving the murder of a young Boston lawyer whose reckless one-night stand with the Mayor of Boston gets her killed. The senseless murder is linked to an old, unsolved art heist, which in turn is linked to the Mayor's fugitive crime-lord son. As Jack is drawn into the unfolding mystery, he helplessly watches as his personal life comes crashing down around him.

Jack Flynn is as likable a character as any I have read. The intrepid reporter is dedicted to furthering the public good by exposing ugly truths to daylight. He seems to live in a world populated by a higher-than-normal percentage of beautiful, successful, intelligent women who are attracted to him. Yet the history of tragedy in his own life, coupled with a terrifically self-deprecating sense of humor make him a very sympathetic character.

Through Flynn, McGrory takes us on a fast-paced quest for truth and justice with deft plot twists and a smooth, conversational narrative that makes all of his books a real pleasure to read. The only problem is that, just as with the other two Jack Flynn novels, you'll read it too fast and the fun will be over too soon.

This is, without a doubt, McGrory's best book yet. I can't tell you how much I laughed and could not put it down. I love Jack Flynn, who has quickly become one of my favorite literary heroes. I don't generally read book after book with one character, but Flynn is indeed the exception. He is charming, honest (to a fault?), and funny. McGrory even makes me feel deeply for Baker the dog and I've never owned a dog. Yet, the parts of the book that deal with Baker made me understand the love that dog owners have in a way that all the people I know in real life who have dogs never got me to see. Even more, the plot is more restrained. The first book, a good read, was too outlandish. This book was more believable. We spend a lot of time in Jack's pysche as he finally wrestles with his pain. The pain was honest and sad. My only complaint is that Jack spends too much time beating himself up over Hilary Kane (too much). However, the secondary characters are great. Mongillo, Martin, etc. I like the way he handled the relationship with Riggs as well. McGrory is growing and I can't wait for the next book...will be before the Sox win a World Series? Probably...
