The McMorrow character is not far afield from Boyle, who got his start as a newspaper reporter in the Maine mill town of Rumford before moving on to a newspaper in Waterville. For his first novel, Deadline, published in 1993, he mined the realities of his day job to create an authentic and gripping drama. Although he didn't know how long his relationship with McMorrow would last, the critical success of Deadline and the wealth of material spurred him to write other McMorrow novels and established him as a standard bearer of Maine crime noir. His most recent McMorrow release, Straw Man, published in 2016 by Islandport Press, has been praised by Publishers Weekly for its "deftly drawn characters and strong sense of place." New York Times bestselling author Gayle Lynds called Straw Man "hypnotically suspenseful," words that could apply to any of Boyle's twisted, terrifying novels. Continue reading

Only Poulin has taken it a step further by creating a fully-developed life and world for Ida, one more personal and familiar; now more similar to Lake Wobegon than the decks of the Bluebird.
