Gerry Boyle

Like many crime novelists, Gerry Boyle began his writing career in newspapers, an industry he calls the “best training ground ever.” After graduating from Colby College, Gerry knocked around, taking stints as a roofer, a postman, and a manuscript reader in New York. However, his time in the city was cut short when Boyle realized that he preferred his adopted northern state to the bustle of Manhattan. His first reporting job was in the paper mill town of Rumford, Maine. After a few months, he moved on to the (Waterville) Morning Sentinel, where editors learned quickly that he worked best when left to his own devices, and Boyle learned that the line between upstanding citizen and outlaw is a fine one, indeed. His experiences as a reporter inspired his first novel, Deadline, published in 1993. Boyle has now written eleven gritty, authentic mysteries featuring his signature character Jack McMorrow.
