"Style, substance and versatility." Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine
Her Father's Daughter:Love and Murder in Key West
Tropical storms come and go, but human nature remains deadly all year long. Young Meggie Trevor, cast adrift emotionally -- and into jeopardy -- by the apparent death of her CIA agent father, takes on all the villains that rowdy Key Wasted has to offer: money-launderers, murderers, double-dealing gamblers and even a literary thief. In six long stories from Alfred Hitchcock's and Ellery Queen's mystery magazines, Meggie proves she's every bit her father's daughter in an end-of-the-road city where anything goes. Includes "Last Island South," best short story finalist of both the Private Eye Writers of America and the International Thriller Writers.
Eleven stories, including nine from Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, featuring CIA case officer Charles Marley. "Downbeat and low-key," says Jon L. Breen in Ellery Queen's, ". . . [the stories] pack a remarkable amount of plot, incident, character insight, and background into a limited space. The Edgar-nominated 'Marley's Revolution' may be the best, but all are notable." Booklist says: "Boland knows the game as well as John leCarré. He knows, too, thedeeper irony. . . . Pour a single malt and savor."
