(Photos by John Harrison) Print journalist, radio personality and author Michele McPhee would be a can- didate for East Boston's Hall of Fame. Don't let the name fool you.

Like her other books, this one too is taken straight off the front pages of newspa- pers across the country. Her writing style is crisp. She writes like a crime reporter covering last night's news but in her non-fiction paperbacks, she has a riveting style that makes one want to finish the book almost immediately. While, we mostly know the outcome, she makes getting there worth the wait. Once again, her book-signing at Ecco Restaurant in East Boston was jam- packed. Folks from around the corner or across the state showed up to just say hi to her, buy her book and comment her on her writing style. McPhee is a people person and her books are easy reads for one and all. The winners in the Boston race.
