A great second book for this cast of characters

If you have not read the first book, you may be lost for a little while, but the story stands on it's own two feet. This author can write, and you almost nod to yourself that he got it right as you listen to his characters think out loud. Some of the characters are a little underdeveloped or unbelieveable, but so are a lot of people we know. My main complaint with this book is two fold: the ending was pretty abrupt, and the author is not as prlific as I would like. I could read a new book by him every month.

You must be crazy...

Love Lehane but do not love him enough to pay 17.99 for an ebook. Thought books were supposed to get cheaper with the addition of ebooks. Oh well, will wait for it to pop up a yard sale. And all you people who will cry about this not being a book review, get over it. Wh...
Love Lehane but do not love him enough to pay 17.99 for an ebook. Thought books were supposed to get cheaper with the addition of ebooks. Oh well, will wait for it to pop up a yard sale. And all you people who will cry about this not being a book review, get over it. When the ratings stay low because they overcharge, maybe they will get the message.

    I didn't like this as much as Dennis Lehane's other books. Maybe it was because he moved the action to Florida and I like his Boston settings better. It was intriguing but not the stay - up - all - night - page turner that I am used to with his work. Nice touch incorporating the characters from his previous book but I just couldn't get into the whole Florida mafia bit.

    Good, but not his best work.

    I enjoyed the first part of this book, then it almost seemed like I was reading a new book. I felt like it abandoned one story to start the next. Overall Dennis Lahane is an extrodinary writer and makes the reading always interesting.

    OK, a little slow.

    Kind of a fun gangster book of the 1930's.
