Thakns for dropping by and please check out my latest McCarthy Family Mystery: Shadow of Innocence.
-----------------------------------
Shadow of Innocence: The Thin Man" meets "Pulp Fiction"
A unique mystery set amid the drugs-and- music scene of the sixties.
The Newport Folk Festival provides a groovy backdrop for this drug-and-sixties-music-soaked mystery, featuring partners in love and danger, Mick and Bridget, hopping on their motorcycles and into action. Aided by the rest of their family of detectives, they quip, banter, and plunge headlong into danger, as haughty Newport is threatened by a perverse, shadowy secret.
Mick and Bridget's exuberance and optimism manage to glimmer through even the darkest of perils, as they delve into a seamy world of drugs and sex, and are forced to match wits with both the mob and a shadowy psychopathic killer.

Shadow of Innocence has it all: adventure, sleuthing, humor, DSM (drugs, sex, music), and a perverse, shadowy secret that threatens to tear apart the posh Newport town.
Don't miss the McCarthy family in action.

A sampling of Reviews for Shadow of Innocence


“Colorful and exciting.” Says David Pitt of Book List

“Wasley is well versed in the 1960s New England music scene (he was a folksinger and rocker), and he is able to make us feel as though we are in that time and place.”— David Pitt – Book List

**************************


From the Library Journal...

P.I. Michael Prescott McCarthy, half Irish and half Boston Brahmin, and his partner Bridget Connolly go to Newport, RI, to rescue the cousin of his Vietnam army buddy. A killer in the tony resort is murdering people in vicious ways. Debut novelist Wasley uses his knowledge of music and personal experience in the Sixties to bring a certain reality to this tale.

**************************

And from NYT Best Selling Author William Martin…

“Here's a recipe for a page-turner: Take a moment of high American drama - the tumultuous year of 1968. Add some cool New England locations - Harvard Square and the Newport Folk festival. Throw in a wisecracking Boston detective. No, wait... make that a whole family of Boston detectives. Let Ric Wasley cook it all up for you. Then sit down and enjoy. You'll be glad you did.”

William Martin, bestselling author of Back Bay, Harvard Yard, and The Lost Constitution
