SPIKED – G+
Arsenault, Mark – 1st book
In the fading manufacturing city of Lowell, Mass., Eddie Bourque, a political reporter for the shoddy Lowell Empire, looks into the brutal murder of his newspaper beat partner and rival, Danny Nowlin. Bourque suspects the killing is tied to a story Nowlin was working on undercover, but the newspaper’s owners, high up in Lowell’s power structure, discourage Bourque from pursuing his investigation.
Although I found it a bit slow in the beginning, the story definitely picked up, the character of Eddie became much more interesting and I found myself involved.
