Dooley can't seem to catch enough breaks, he hates school, hates his job, hates his uncle's short leash, but likes his girlfriend (who might be seeing another guy). He's been working hard to set his life straight, no longer involved with booze and drugs. That is, until an old friend from the old days shows up and asks for a loan. Then his mother appears after years of no contact, only to be murdered. If that's not enough though, Dooley's uncle seems to have secrets of his own. On a path to find ...more

My reward for making through my first pass of page proofs and wow, was it worth it! This one is hard to find at the moment--it's not available through at all, it is available through, though it's showing 2-3 weeks to ship, but you can get it directly from the publisher, Red Deer Press (that's what I did)

This is the second novel about Dooley and I admit, I went into it with a little trepidation. The first one was so good, how could the second even come close? But I'd forgott

This young adult mystery features Ryan Dooley, a character McClintock has used before. Dooley is working hard to stay on the straight and narrow, living with his uncle, going to school, and holding down a job. He hasn't touched alcohol or drugs since he's been out. He has a girlfriend, Beth, that he can't believe he's lucky enough to have. He has a friend at school, and a friend at work. He is passing his courses.
But then things start to happen. Beth starts hanging out with another guy, a guy wi
Ryan Dooley is just trying to do the right thing—staying in school, staying out of trouble, working his job at the video store, keeping his uncle off his back. When Jeffie shows up and asks for a loan, Dooley realizes that the line between his old life, when he was incarcerated, and his new life is very thin. A woman from far in his past surfaces and once again Dooley might have gotten himself on the wrong side of the law. This sequel stands nicely on its own. Language and sex content (none des ...more
This was a real page-turner! I like to think that I'm a jaded reader that can predict most plot twists, but I am not actually practiced at reading the mystery/detective genre. So it was a pleasant surprise to have the author lead me down a garden path, only to put up detour signs! I have a few of my teen guys in mind for this title. I just wish I could convince some others that reading over 150 pages doesn't have to be a death sentence!
I love this book it is great if you would like to read about someone with problems. Norah McClintock is a great author and i love her books. this is the second book of "Dooley Takes the Fall." They are both great books and i love the end to this book. I am not going to spoil it for you, you will just have to find out for yourself.
It was really really good. I loved it. However, it was confusing in some places that makes you want to read it the same page/line twice to get it.
I thought this writer took too long to get to the gist of the mystery....
