A Thomas Lynch NovelBook - 2015
In the summer of 1997, Thomas Lynch arrives as the new chief of police in Idyll, Connecticut -- a town where serious crimes can be counted on one hand. So no one is prepared when Cecilia North is found murdered on a golf course. By chance, Chief Lynch met her mere hours before she was killed. With that lead, the case should be a slam dunk. But there's a problem. If Lynch tells his detectives about meeting the victim, he'll reveal his greatest secret -- he's gay. So Lynch works angles of the case on his own. Meanwhile, he must contend with pressure from the mayor to solve the crime before the town's biggest tourist event begins, all while coping with the suspicions of his men, casual homophobia, and difficult memories of his former NYPD partner's recent death.
