Liam Mulligan

 Liam Mulligan is an old-school investigative reporter whose beat is Providence, Rhode Island.  He knows every street and alley, the priests and prostitutes, the cops and street thugs. He knows the mobsters and politicians—who are pretty much one and the same.  

Edgar Award winner Bruce DeSilva knows the score and gives us mysteries with the real skinny: “The Rhode Island of Bruce DeSilva’s imagination is a claustrophobic little state where everyone knows your name, secrets are hard to keep, and corruption has ruled since the first colonial governor dined with Captain Kidd.  In this vivid landscape peopled by colorful mobsters, brutal cops and sleazy politicians, a droll hero named Mulligan fights long odds to find a measure of justice.”—Harlan Coben,  New York Times bestselling author
