About this Book:

While researching a travel story about Benedict Arnold, Jack McMorrow traces the route of the infamous Revolutionary War figure up the Kennebec River into Quebec, Canada. When a man fails to rejoin his bus tour in a small Northern Maine town, Jack makes a pit stop to help local authorities search, only to soon tangle with lethal small-town criminals who prey on the weak and defenseless. Threatened, beaten up, and forced into a terrifying game of backwoods hide-and-seek, McMorrow faces his most ruthless opponents yet. Borderline, originally published in 1998, takes readers into a world of mistaken identities, traitorous dealings, and a dangerous hunt for a man no one seems to know much about. This redesigned Islandport edition includes a new introduction by the author.

"[Boyle] keeps the legend of this cold and menancing landscape very much alive." —The New York Times

"Boyle's dialogue is crisp, poignant and often witty...Borderline is a thoughtful and satisfying addition to an excellent series." —Maine Sunday Telegram

"Boyle's best work comes in lovely, evocative passages about rural, remote Maine; the horrific story of Arnold's doomed effort to bring Quebec into the war against the British; and McMorrow's ruminations about morality." —Booklist

"Features as much sound and fury as a summer movie blockbuster." —Kirkus Reviews
