(10.26) Meet crime reporter Maureen Boyle tonight at Books on the Square and learn about her book “Shallow Graves: The Hunt for the New Bedford Highway Serial Killer.”
Eleven women went missing over the spring and summer of 1988 in New Bedford, Massachusetts, an old fishing port known as the Whaling City, where Moby Dick, Frederick Douglass, textile mills, and heroin-dealing represent just a few of the many threads in the community’s diverse fabric. In Shallow Graves, investigative reporter Maureen Boyle tells the story of a case that has haunted New England for thirty years.
Maureen Boyle first broke the story in 1988 and stayed with it for decades. She has been a crime reporter in New England for more than 25 years, including at the Standard-Times of New Bedford during this serial murder case.
