A novel by

A Joe Gale Mystery

Maine newspaper reporter Joe Gale is at his best when covering the crime beat for the Portland Daily Chronicle. In the dead of winter he heads Downeast to cover the murder trial of fisherman Danny Boothby, charged with burying a filleting knife in the chest of politically well-connected social worker Frank O'Rourke.

O'Rourke held a thankless job in a hard place. Many locals found him arrogant, but say he didn't deserve to die. Others whisper that O'Rourke got himself killed through his own rogue behavior.

After Joe's hard-nosed reporting provokes someone to run him off an isolated road, he realizes his life depends on figuring out not only who committed the murder, but who's stalking him - O'Rourke's prominent brother, friends or enemies of the dead social worker or members of Boothby's family. As he digs deeper, Joe uncovers enough secrets and lies to fill a cemetery. He'll have to solve this one fast... or his next headline may be his own obituary.
