Description

Michael Quinn is not well equipped for his odyssey through New England's dangerous underworld. In fact, he isn't well equipped for much. Michael's only goal was to become an editorial writer at the Portland Daily, a milestone he achieved just as the paper was picking up momentum toward irrelevance. Middle-aged, romantically unattached, distant from his only child, and in search of love through the missed connections classifieds, Michael thinks these are his only problems. Returning to Boston after his father dies unexpectedly, Michael's journey home forces him into conflict with unresolved family issues, denial, and the revelation that his father had ties to organized crime. Michael inherits some unfinished family business that places him as the unwitting linchpin in a major criminal conspiracy. His journey brings danger and betrayal, but also self-discovery and the possibility of a windfall of cash.

Reviews

"Hidden Falls is many books in one--replete with humor, it's also a thriller, a love story (or two!), a series of mysteries, a deep reflection on the relationship between father and sons, and a demonstration of how the past haunts the present. Kevin Myers manages, through the affable voice of his narrator, Michael Quinn, to synthesize this complex, many-dimensional world in a compelling, deeply human fashion. Read it!" --Peter Rock, author of My Abandonment (now the film Leave No Trace) and The Night Swimmers
"Hidden Falls is as if Dennis Lehane wrote the 40-Year Old Virgin. It's intelligent, charming and the perfect combination of thrilling and funny. It's a must read!" --Judd Apatow, writer and director of The 40-Year Old Virgin (co-written with Steve Carell), Knocked Up, and Funny People. Author of Sick in the Head, and It's Gary Shandling's Book.
