Dermot Sparhawk, a former All-American Boston College football hero, is stacking cans in a parish food pantry in Boston's Charlestown, when his godfather, Jeepster Hennessey, shows up with a knife in his back and dies at Dermot's feet. Once slated for a professional football career, now a recovering alcoholic with a torn-up knee, Dermot sets out to solve the murder of his godfather with the help of his Micmac Indian cousin, his paraplegic tenant, and a former teammate.

Dermot's investigation has him tangling with members of the IRA, FBI, and the Boston mob. He is also forced to contend with Charlestown's code of silence and the norms of the neighborhood where he grew up. Feeling like he did at the height of his game, Dermot uses his Native American intuition and Irish good looks to help him uncover clues. Dermot stumbles upon bits and pieces of information that he cobbles together into an unlikely theory which leads him on an unexpected trail, and to a new mystery that could cost him his life.

    " The Charlestown Connection was not the greatest mystery ever writen but it was not the worst either. This will go into the pile of books that I have read but will not likely read again. "

    " I thought it was ok. I stuck with it and read the entire book but several times I almost quit. "

    " If you enjoy the Steve Hamilton Alex McKnight series, I suspect you will also enjoy this story. (I have no concrete reasons for the comparison; but, there is something about the feel and tone of the story.) It is a simple tale that quickly turns into a complicated mystery - with much history behind it. It starts with a murder, a code word, and a key - and becomes so much more. I was disappointed to see that this is the only book with this character as I feel this could easily be turned into a series - as the main character and his two sidekicks have much potential for future adventure. I will most likely look into other books by this author in the hopes that it is as much the writer as the story and characters. "

    " Meandering plot. Needed a lot of tightening. Cool idea though, once you finally get there. "
