Review: Third Rail: An Eddy Harkness Novel, by Rory Flynn

Set in Boston and what seems to be Concord or Lincoln, Third Rail is Flynn’s debut novel under that pen name. His other novels are published as Stona Fitch. The author is hoping to make this a series with the subtitle “An Eddy Harkness Novel.” The Boston setting, the Red Sox, local politics and typical characters for our area figure into the plot, including some digs at the good people of Concord. Eddy is a policeman with a unique ability to find hidden objects at a crime scene; drugs, guns, cash. But after a night of heavy drinking he is horrified to wake up the next day to find his police-issued Glock missing from its holster. Fast paced and not too long or overly gruesome, this book kept me turning the pages. If published, maybe I’ll read the next one in the series.

RATING: * * * A good read
