“Matthew Fitzpatrick's Demon Tide is a bite-your-nails-down-to-the-cuticles crime drama that’s gritty, witty, and chock full of surprises. Fitzpatrick is quickly elevating himself as the rightful heir to the Boston gangster throne once held by George V. Higgins and Dennis Lehane.”

—Casey Sherman, New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author of James Patterson's Last Days of John Lennon and Hunting Whitey


This is a community that has lost its innocence.


Demon Tide tells the story of a quaint New England town that meets the growing opioid epidemic head-on. The town’s casualties build up as local law enforcement, as well as out-of-towners in the form of Justin McGee and his “family,” realize that it’s a crime that stems within the community’s own. A town whose roots are the source of pride and soul-felt history are shattered knowing that so many of the residents have been infiltrated by the New England Nova Scotia drug trade either as users or sellers.
