Dark Horse

(2016)
(The second book in the Eddy Harkness series)
A novel by

 
"As stylish as Parker, as tough as Lehane - a beautifully written, hip, and heartbreaking tale of Boston's dark side." - Hank Phillippi Ryan, award-winning author of What You See

"Boston cop Eddy Harkness returns in a second turbocharged adventure that kicks off with an apocalyptic flood and incorporates Colonial bylaws, big-city corruption, and a highly entertaining cast of characters." - Boston Globe


When a late-summer hurricane slams into Boston, Detective Eddy Harkness and his Narco-Intel crew are thrown into the eye of a very different kind of storm. Dark Horse - an especially pure and deadly brand of heroin - has infiltrated the gritty Lower South End. Harkness soon finds that the drug is also at the center of an audacious land grab by the city's corrupt new mayor and his shadowy power brokers. Meanwhile, Lower South End residents displaced by the storm use an obscure bylaw to take refuge in Eddy's hometown of Nagog, and soon tensions are running high along its quaint tree-lined streets.

Fast-paced and atmospheric, Dark Horse moves from dive bars to Harvard dorm rooms to the city's elite social clubs, as Harkness puts everything at risk to try to derail the seemingly unstoppable conspiracy before it's too late.

"Eddy Harkness is a welcome addition to the Boston crime scene, and Rory Flynn is a terrific writer who knows how to spin a yarn with grit and confidence." - Dennis Lehane, author of World Gone By

"Rich in character, riveting in storytelling and fierce in feeling, Dark Horse is both a crackling crime novel and a tough-yet-tender love song to a city. . . not to be missed." - Megan Abbott, author of The Fever
