Description
At crime scenes, Eddy Harkness is a human Ouija board, a brilliant young detective with a knack for finding something hidden, be it cash, drugs, guns, or bodies. But in this debut novel of Rory Flynn's roller-coaster detective series, Harkness's swift rise in an elite narcotics unit is derailed by the death of a young Red Sox fan in the chaos after a World Series win, which some camera-wielding witnesses believe Harkness could have prevented. Busted down to the bottom of the department in the Boston suburb of Nagog, Harkness suffers the further indignity of having his gun stolen. But his search for it leads to his discovery of a dangerous new drug called Third Rail, and Harkness, eager to redeem himself, plunges into a corrupt and deadly web.

"[A] terrific debut ... with impressive economy and stylish, sophisticated prose.... Readers will want to see more of Flynn's gritty Boston—and Eddy Harkness."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Already compelling plot-wise, Third Rail also glows with the kind of sawdust-dry humor regarding Beantown, cops, and the darkest of urban underbellies that you might find at 3 a.m. in the back booth of a backstreet bar.... With its gaggle of crazy-yet-riveting characters, its spare approach and its unflagging action, [the book is] the first in a promised series of Eddy Harkness novels."—Boston Globe
