Drug dealers are missing in Boston. It's not a bad thing, but a good thing! But what is making them disappear?
The Tunnel is a fast-paced novel about how the men in blue dispose of drug dealers in the City of Boston. Author Peter Mars, a former police officer in Boston knows the streets -- the drug trade and criminals on them, and the labyrinths of abandoned tunnels beneath them. Many cops in Boston and elsewhere do their best to battle the influence of drug dealers, but some look the other way. Others, the heroes of The Tunnel, decided to eliminate drug dealers by becoming judge, jury and executioner of those who are destroying society. The Tunnel is the gripping story of one such cop, Frank Conley. Conley discovers a cache of money during a routine fire investigation of a burned out drug laboratory. Since the money is unknown to anyone but himself and the dead criminals, he decides to use it to finance his own operation to rid the streets of the dealers. Conley is a man who believes his job is to make the world a better place to live, and this unexpected windfall becomes the financing for his plan. He, and several trusted men in his division, take on the mission of ridding the city of a few bad men. They buy a building with a cellar door that leads to one of the city's abandoned tunnels, and the officers begin to deal with crime and criminals on their own terms. If dealers are vanishing from the streets, is anyone sorry?
