Today's Globe reports the sad news that William Tapply, author of the wonderful Brady Coyne series of mysteries set in Boston, has died at age 69.
Tapply's Coyne has been my favorite Boston mystery series. Coyne is a lawyer with a private investigator's instincts, and his practice -- based in a small Back Bay office -- leads him into all sorts of interesting situations.
I don't know if others here are fans of Boston-based mysteries, but if so feel free to shout out your favorites.
In any event, here's to William Tapply for some great reads.
