Pre Pub Book Buzz: Dark Horse by Rory Flynn

Readers, I don't know about you but I LURVE a good mystery/thriller. The kind that keeps you turning pages well beyond when you should hit the hay. The kind that sticks with you long after. The kind that puts an author on your must have list. 

Rory Flynn's Third Rail was all of those things and more and I've been waiting anxiously (and patiently) for more in the series. Well, the wait is ALMOST over! This june Eddy Harkness, the hero of Third Rail, finally makes his return and I couldn't be more excited!

Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

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 move into Eddy’s hometown, and soon enough tensions are running high along Nagog’s 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 — his department, his nascent family, and his life — to try to derail the seemingly unstoppable conspiracy before it’s too late.

If you haven't had the pleasure of reading Third Rail yet, you do have a little over five months to catch up. (I've linked my review above if you're interested.) Dark Horse is due out in June from Houghton Mifflin.
