Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From one of the world’s best-selling and most entertaining mystery writers comes a beguiling new novel starring the beloved Inspector Flynn.

Boston police inspector Francis Xavier Flynn is in for a tough day. He has hardly gotten a wink of sleep, due to a marathon bout of detective work. His daughter, Jenny, drags him to a cemetery, where her best friend is nailed to a tree by his ear. Unfortunately, the boy refuses to reveal who did it or why. Next, Flynn hears that his incompetent sidekick, Grover, has convinced the police chief to fire him—again. And then Flynn finds out that a local cop has developed a tendency to pursue and arrest the wrong people—based only on the color of their skin. Dealing with the infuriating, befuddled, and intolerant Boston police force is enough to keep him more than busy, but someone even more powerful than the chief of police wants Flynn to forget everything else and concentrate on discovering who is threatening a certain Harvard professor.

With startling wit, deft characterization, and insightful social commentary, Flynn’s World is a masterpiece of mystery and a complete joy to read.

Synopsis:

Boston police inspector Francis Xavier Flynn (''one of the smartest, gentlest, most sarcastic cops you will ever meet'' --The New York Times) has hardly gotten a wink of sleep after a marathon bout of detective work. He's discovered that his daughter's best friend has had his ear nailed to a tree. He's heard that the police chief is about to fire him--again. And he's learned that a local cop has developed a tendency to pursue and arrest the wrong people--based on the color of their skin. But the problem is that Flynn isn't really a cop. He's actually an international spy, and his spymaster wants him to forget everything else and concentrate on discovering who is blackmailing a certain Harvard professor. Along the way he confronts intolerence in all its guises. It's a typical plateful for Flynn, with the promise of a string of his typically atypical adventures, in this outrageously entertaining novel from the prodigious pen of Gregory McDonald.
