In this sequel to Norah McClintock’s gritty mystery Dooley Takes the Fall, Ryan Dooley continues to struggle against circumstances that would defeat most teenagers, let alone kids who have been in serious trouble with the law. Dooley (as he prefers to be known) was involved in a break and enter a few years ago, served his time, and is now living with his hard-nosed uncle, a former cop determined that the boy will find a way to lead a blameless and useful life from henceforth. But there are threads that still link Dooley to his former life of aimless criminality, and one of them – with the affable Jeffie, a sometime drug dealer and one-time buddy – threatens to bring him down, especially when Jeffie turns up dead, while still owing money to Dooley.
Norah McClintock was born and raised in Montreal but now calls Toronto home. Armed with a degree in history from McGill University, she has worked in the non-profit sector as an editor and writer for many years. But without doubt, Norah's passion is crime writing. A member of the Crime Writers of Canada, Norah has been the recipient of the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Fiction a phenomenal 5 times.
