In this latest gripping mystery from bestselling author Bruce Robert Coffin, Detective Sergeant John Byron is back—and ready to prove that no one on his beat is above the law.
When the body of prominent Portland attorney Paul Ramsey turns up in the bottom of Casco Bay, following his loss of a multimillion dollar civil trial, Byron knows it's no accidental drowning. Golden boy Ramsey had a dark side—and Byron believes the key to solving his murder lies in uncovering those secrets someone wanted buried along with him.
With the brilliant Detective Diane Joyner by his side, Byron takes on Ramsey's former employer, the powerhouse law firm of Newman, Branch & DeWitt. But delving further into the troubled waters of Ramsey's past only serves to lengthen the list of suspects—unleashing a perfect storm of corruption, betrayal, and murder that only Byron can stop. If he's not too late.
"A first-rate novel. Suspenseful and highly entertaining." -- New York Times bestselling author Gayle Lynds
Fall in Portland, Maine usually arrives as a welcome respite from summer’s sweltering temperatures and, with the tourists gone, a return to normal life—usually. But when a retired cop is murdered, things heat up quickly, setting the city on edge.
Detective Sergeant John Byron, a second-generation cop, is tasked with investigating the case—at the very moment his life is unraveling. On the outs with his department’s upper echelon, separated from his wife, and feeling the strong pull of the bottle, Byron remains all business as he tries to solve the murder of one of their own. And when another ex-Portland PD officer dies under suspicious circumstances, he quickly realizes there’s much more to these cases than meets the eye. The closer Byron gets to the truth, the greater the danger for him and his fellow detectives.
This taut, atmospheric thriller will appeal to fans of Michael Connelly and John Sandford.
Gregg Popovich recently passed Jerry Sloan for most wins by a coach with one club, and it got me thinking. What would an all-time team of players Pop coached look like. The starting five doesn’t take much thought, but what about the second five, and the third. For example, it’s arguable that Parker will go down as “only” the eighth-best player Pop’s ever coached, if you go by the criteria of the totality of everyone’s career and not just their time with the Spurs. I looked all at the ten winningest coaches in NBA history and made all-time teams for them. Win Shares is by no means a perfect metric, but it’s a quick and dirty tool that gives us a rough idea of what an individual accomplished in the league, so after I had my top-15 ( guys in bold are in the Hall-of-Fame ) for each coach, I added up... After all, each of the other nine coaches in the top-ten had at least one other stop in the league —Sloan included— and most had several. When you coach for 20-25 years and a handful of franchises, you end up crossing path with many, many players, and to win as many games as these guys have, quite a few of those players tend to be really good. How could a stationary coach like Pop compete with transitory types like Don Nelson or Larry Brown. Don Nelson 1977-2010. 2,398 games 1,335-1,063 (. 557) 166 playoff games 75-91 (. 452). 0 NBA Championships 0 Conference Titles 1,553. 4 Win Shares. 31 seasons, five different gigs including two separate stints with the Warriors , this guy coached some dudes. He’s got eight Hall-of-Famers in his top-15, with three more locks in the pipeline in Curry, Nowitzki and Nash, and he’s got two more HOF’ers in his mentions whose NBA careers weren’t good enough to crack his third-best lineup. Forget Sampson or Marciulionas, Nelson’s got so many guys on his resume that C-Webb and Tim Hardaway are on the outside looking in. That’s crazy, right. He had Lanier at the end there with Milwaukee, Ewing with the Knicks (he sabotaged that, trying to go behind Ewing’s back to flip him for Shaq and got canned), and two more great ones in Cowens and Sikma. Nelson’s Bucks teams just never got over the hump against those juggernaut Celtics and Sixers squads, but he blew it with a young Alex English and then again a generation later with first Richmond and later Webber. It’s really a shame he had this much talent and couldn’t ever turn it into a ring. Source: Pounding The Rock - All Posts

Bruce Byron is a popular character in The Bill. He's about three to four stones overweight, nearing fifty and, in his own words, a heart attack waiting to happen. 'You see, I have a weight issue - the issue being that I have too much of it. Currently in the UK around six in ten men are medically defined as overweight and one in six as obese. Obesity in the UK has more than doubled in the past eighteen years, amongst blokes it's tripled and with this come increased risks to our health including heart disease - the UK's biggest killer. According to my friends at the British Heart Foundation, heart disease kills one in five males. It is responsible for 32% of premature deaths in males. Someone in the UK has a heart attack every two minutes. That could be me. So, here we are. This is the documented journey of a soon to be fifty-year-old, seriously overweight man who works long hours and wants to be around to see his children grow up, a man who wants to play and do exciting activities with my family, enjoy growing old with my beautiful wife and be around long enough to enjoy the rewards of our very hard-earned success. Today's the day I stop making excuses.'
