    A reviewer

    It's no surprise that Gone Baby Gone was selected for big-budget movie treatment by the Hollywood machine. The story of a missing, neglected child offers knuckle-clenching thrills, heart-rending chills, and later a moral dilemma that shakes the foundation of private detectives Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro (this is the fourth installment in their series). It's Lehane's characters and dialogue that stand out -- living, breathing, and dying before our eyes, with only the faintest nod to caricature and cliche (but would it be possible for a detective somewhere, somehow, to arrive on a crime scene and NOT immediately glean information that has eluded scores of police officers? Please?). Things bog down at times when Lehane indulges himself a bit too much with his descriptive prose in his attempt to make Boston's neighborhoods and history a vital part of the story, but for the most part the plot chugs along at a decent pace, steadily building tension until the moment of truth arrives. Most inconsistencies and loose threads are tied-up neatly, albeit somewhat implausibly, with a few well-considered revelations in the final pages.

    WOW

    I will admit it took me a little while to really get into this book but once I did I was hooked. I even had to read it in the car, knowing I would feel sick from doing so. Lehane is a true master of the written word who knows how to make your heart jump with suspense or ache with compassion. He doesn't sugar coat a thing. I also enjoyed the way he described Boston in all its glory and gore. Now, I just gotta see the movie.

    Just finished reading Gone Baby Gone. This is the first book that I have read by this author. The twists and turns are fantastic and really held my complete attention. However, the ending was terrible!!! Poor Amanda is worst off because she has now seen another side of life. The detectives didn't accomplish anything just gave a child hopeless dreams.
