Giveaway - Third Rail - Rory Flynn

Rory Flynn's new novel, Third Rail, releases on June 10/14. And I have a copy to giveaway to one lucky reader! Crime and mystery fans, this is one you'll want to get your hands on - it's the first in Flynn's Eddy Harkness series.

What's it about? From the publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt:

"At crime scenes, Eddy Harkness is a human Ouija board, a brilliant young detective with a knack for finding the hidden something—cash, drugs, guns, bodies. But Eddy’s swift rise in an elite narcotics unit is derailed by the death of a Red Sox fan in the chaos of a World Series win, a death some camera-phone-wielding witnesses believe he could have prevented. Scapegoated, Eddy is exiled to his hometown just outside Boston, where he empties parking meters and struggles to redeem his disgraced family name. 

Then one night Harkness’s police-issue Glock disappears. Unable to report the theft, Harkness starts a secret search—just as a string of fatal accidents lead him to uncover a new, dangerous smart drug, Third Rail. With only a plastic disc gun to protect him, Harkness begins a high-stakes investigation that leads him into the darkest corners of the city, where politicians and criminals intertwine to deadly effect.

With a textured sense of place, a nuanced protagonist, and a story that takes off from page one and culminates in a startling finale, Third Rail has all the elements of a breakout mystery success."

"A powerful new voice in crime fiction. A generally nice guy in Boston.
