Deadline on Arrival

The Ronan Mezini Mysteries (Book One)

Greg Stone

Appearing in a news story can be fatal.

News becomes a dangerous business for everyone involved when the people profiled in the pages of The Boston Observer start filling the morgue. Spearheading the investigation, literate Detective Ronan Mezini has a rare condition called synesthesia that commingles his senses, turning sounds into colors.

Though he feels as if he's living in a movie with special effects, his skewed perceptions lead him to a startling link between the murders and put him on the trail of a killer on a warped mission.

    “A masterwork: The type of mystery that makes headlines—with a detective so hard-boiled you can almost taste his thoughts.”

  4. Carlos Alvarenga

    “Greg Stone has a talent for bringing to life the characters of his beloved Boston, and one is quickly drawn into the world of journalists and detectives who push forward this fast-paced novel. Detective Manzini is a smart and entertaining narrator, and the story—built around a series of unsolved murders—grips you and keeps you reading. Stone, a former Boston journalist, has a talent for the everyday details and language that take a reader into his world.”
