This is book number 1 in the Eddy Harkness Novels series.
RORY FLYNN lives in Boston, Massachusetts. He is the author of the Eddy Harkness series, which debuted with Third Rail.
"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, Third Rail, the first in a promised series of Eddy Harkness novels, adds yet another striking feather to [Rory Flynn]’s impressively-crowded cap." —Boston Globe
"Third Rail gets off to a ripping start and never lets off the gas. Rory Flynn is a suspense writer to watch." —Jess Walter, author of the bestselling Beautiful Ruins
“Third Rail is an adrenaline-soaked tale of political corruption and personal redemption that never lets up. Eddy Harkness, the self-destructive Massachusetts narcotics detective at the novel’s center, is a worthy successor to Robert B. Parker’s Jesse Stone.” —Sean Chercover, author of the bestselling The Trinity Game
"Third Rail is driven equally by character and plot. Harkness's Nagog is faintly reminiscent ofFargo (the film or television series, take your pick). It is populated by quirky characters, some of whom are dangerous to others, others who are dangerous only to themselves." —Book Reporter
"Terrific debut...impressive economy and stylish, sophisticated prose...Readers will want to see more of Flynn’s gritty Boston—and Eddy Harkness." —Publishers Weekly, boxed and starred
"The start to a successful crime writing career." —Library Journal
