This novel was fast paced action from page one. The thesis of the book is unique and the author executes his theme to perfection. I loved the dialog and with the humor proved an interesting turn in this type of novel . The plot twists are realistic and not contrived. Read this one you won't go wrong.

After deciding that 'Mystic River' was just okay and then moving on to 'Shutter Island' which I proclaimed the best book of this past year and a masterpiece, I didn't think I'd like 'Prayer's For Rain' as much...but I did! This book is yet another masterpiece in that of itself but in a different kind of way than 'Shudder'. The character's bounce off the page and slap you in your face and seem so real that it's hard to put down. They drive this story and they in return sell the storyline. And the storyline is magnificent and enjoyable from start to finish. I found no flaws in this novel at all, except at the end when I didn't want it to be over. Lehane is brilliant and this book is the epitome of excellence. Read this book, love it, cherish it, talk about it. 'Prayer's For Rain' is in a class of it's own.

I won't really spoil much of this plot, which was excellent. This book was great. Lehane is on the best crime novelists, his writing style is great, he writes good dialogue, and I feel like I know the characters. Read this if you like crime novels.

Dennis Lehane is one of my top three favorite authors. He cannot produce books fast enough for my reading pleasure. Once again, he has created characters that grab hold of your emotions and twist them around, not quite knowing if you are feeling compassion for the good guys or bad. I was unable to put the book down and read for many hours at a time...not boring and the use of first-person writing provides so much more details and feelings of the characters true emotions. This book is highly recommended.

An enemy equipped with vast power and bottomless resources confronts Kenzie, his old partner Angie and their lovable but monstrous Bubba in this quick paced novel. Driven by guilt because he had not returned a client¿s call for help , Kenzie set about making things right by investigating the causes that led to Karen Nichol¿s suicide. An array of events were discovered, events that could not have been pulled off by nature but was intrinsically planned to drive her to her death. Eventually she lost her will to live and suicide seemed her best resort. Our three stooges then find themselves in a mêlée for their sanity and their lives as they discover layer after layer of treachery and ruse masking the killer and his plots, a killer who prefers to drive his victims to their deaths than the actus reus of physical murder. With swift velocity, charitable portions of suspense and intrigue, and a plot with more twists than a bag of pretzels,(can get rather confusing at certain points_ Lehane provides all the element of a catchy thriller. However, I found the dialogues between the protagonists too `¿concocted¿¿ and `trying too hard to be witty¿. Not natural. But the touch of romance for toughie Bubba added a nice spice. And the ending held a little twist that keeps you wondering. A worthwhile read, if you may.

Love this book. This is exactly the psycho- thriller I was looking for. Intelligently written and woven together with all the creativity of an edge-of-your-seat mental puzzle!

My first experience with a Dennis Lehane novel was with Shutter Island. That book ruined my for other books. I just couldn't find anything to match up to it for a while. When I found this series I was happy as a clam. I picked up the series in the middle and will be going back to start from the beginning. Great pacing, great characters, great action...great book!

Awesome!! I read Gone Baby Gone first, and thought that was good. Prayers is soooo much better, almost as good as Shutter Island. Love Patrick Kenzie. Knowing that Casey Affleck will play him the movie 'Gone Baby Gone' makes it even better!

The good guys breaking laws to get rid of the scum of the Earth and also save their own lives. I love the main characters am glad humor was thrown in here and there to keep the book from being all about darkness.
