9780765329813: Rogue Island (Liam Mulligan)

2011 Edgar Award Finalist for Best First Novel

Liam Mulligan is as old school as a newspaper man gets. His beat is Providence, Rhode Island, and he knows every street and alley. He knows the priests and prostitutes, the cops and street thugs. He knows the mobsters and politicians―who are pretty much one and the same.

Someone is systematically burning down the neighborhood Mulligan grew up in, people he knows and loves are perishing in the flames, and the public is on the verge of panic. With the whole city of Providence on his back, Mulligan must weed through a wildly colorful array of characters to find the truth.

From the Author:

What the world's greatest crime-fiction writers are saying about Rogue Island:

"A tense, teriffic thriller," Dennis Lehane

"Rogue Island is a blast!" -- Michael Connelly

"A stunning debut in the noir tradition." -- Harlan Coben

""I could have written a whole essay on how much I loved Rogue Island." -- Ken Bruen

"Not since Dennis Lehane's A Drink Before the War have I read a first novel as sure-handed." -- James W. Hall

"Fans of Michael Connelly and Robert B. Parker, rejoice!: -- Peter Blauner

"Rogue Island is a stunning debut." -- Alafair Burke

"I haven't been this impressed since I discovered some guy named Robert B. Parker." -- Ace Atkins

"Bruce DeSilva accomplishes something remarkable. He takes everything we love about the classic hard-boiled detective novel and turns it into a story that's fresh, contemporary, yet timeless." -- Joseph Finder

"Witty as it is intelligent, smoothly written and wryly told, a gem." -- Thomas H. Cook

"DeSilva writes with a master's understanding of the genre." -- Marcus Sakey

"Bruce DeSilva knows exactly how thrillers work, and he pulls out all the stops in this impressive debut." -- Sean Chercover

"A welcome new rogue voice in American fiction." -- Tim Dorsey

"When it comes to fresh noir-on-wry, readers could not ask for more." -- Otto Penzler

"Rogue Island" is just my kind of book: beautifully written, to the point, very nasty, and with a hell of a twist -- Sara Gran

What some other knowledgable book-lovers are saying:

"I love to discover a new author who handles his plot, characters and location with such skill." -- Doug Robinson, co-owner of the Eagle Eye Book Shop, Decatur, GA

"Rogue Island is the funniest and best-written suspense novel I've read in years. . . . Don't be fooled, though, by the non-stop drama, horror, and black humor of DeSilva's first novel. For all its merits as a thriller, Rogue Island is a highly serious work of fiction combining a fascinating and authentic evocation of a 21st-century American city with a lyrical tribute to the dying newspaper business." -- Howard Frank Mosher, critically acclaimed author of Walking to Gatlinburg and Waiting for Teddy Williams.
 

From the Inside Flap:

Liam Mulligan is as old school as a newspaper man gets. His beat is Providence, Rhode Island, and he knows every street and alley. He knows the priests and the prostitutes, the cops and the street thugs. He knows the mobsters and the politicians -- who are pretty much one and the same. Times are changing fast. Corruption runs amok, and what a reporter has to do in the name of competition is becoming laughable. But when Mulligan realizes that someone is systematically burning down his childhood neighborhood, he ignores his bosses and his budding relationship to figure out the firebug's identify. People he knows and loves are perishing in the flames, and the public is on the verge of panic. With the whole city of Providence on his back, Mulligan must weed through a wildly colorful array of characters to find the truth.
