"...provocative and utterly believable."
– Kirkus Reviews
It's a hot Boston summer, and
Nick Young, a washed-up journalist back in town to care for his dying
father, is feeling the heat. Using his old skills to solve a mystery
before the police do – to connect the dots between a major labor strike,
a violent Occupy-style movement, and a murder that may involve his best
friend's teen son.
HEADLONG is a literary thriller about fathers, sons, eco-terrorism, death, immaturity, anarchism, friendship, and failure.
From Last Light Studio books.
"A winning hybrid of warm family tale and murder mystery."
– Chuck Hogan, author of The Town
"A page-turning thriller. Nick Young is a noir hero for the twenty-first century."
– Barbara Ross, author of Clammed Up
"Janitors go on strike, corporations dig in, and revolutionary kids light the fire. Until this book is through with you, you won't give a thought to how very well MacLean writes. HEADLONG is so full of love and peril you can taste it."
– Frederick G. Dillen, author of Fool
"A gripping, timely novel about the news business, labor politics, protest, and murder. It has the grace to be empathetic with all sides of a hard fight where no one has clean hands, and ultimately presents a tale of redemption and hope arising from even the most impossible circumstances."
– Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother and Homeland
