Maureen Boyle author of Shallow Graves: The Hunt for the new Bedford Highway Serial Killer.
Investigative reporter Maureen Boyle first broke the story in 1988 and stayed with it for decades. In Shallow Graves she spins a riveting narrative about the crimes, the victims, the hunt for the killers, and the search for justice, all played out against the backdrop of an increasingly impoverished community beset by drugs and crime. Drawing on more than one hundred interviews, along with police reports, first-person accounts, and field reporting both during the killings and more recently, Shallow Graves brings the reader behind the scenes of the investigation, onto the streets of the city, and into the homes of the families still hoping for answers.
Maureen Boyle, an award winning journalist, has been a crime reporter in New England for decades and was the first reporter to cover the serial killings in New Bedford, Massachusetts. She holds an undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport, Conn. and a master’s degree in criminal justice from Anna Maria College in Paxton, Massachusetts. She is now director of the Journalism Program at Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts. Shallow Graves: The Hunt for the New Bedford Highway Serial Killer, published by ForeEdge/University Press of New England, is her first book.
