Relegated to reviewing unsolved murders as the result of a courtroom outburst, Boston homicide detective Lieutenant Joe McGuire becomes obsessed with solving the murder of a young woman found in the Boston Fens.
Working with his now-quadriplegic ex-partner Ollie Schantz, McGuire follows a lead to ever-dangerous Texas-Mexican border and eventually to the very doorstep of the killer where he learns that everything—and everyone—may not be what it first appears to be.
And Leaver Her Lay Dying is the second novel in the Joe McGuire mystery series, and was short-listed for the Arthur Ellis Best Novel Award. It is followed by Whisper Death.
