Review

“The well-oiled plot mechanics, edge-of-the-knife dialogue and explosive bursts of violence are polished and primed in this hard-boiled shocker.” --  New York Times Book Review

“In the miserably hot summer of 1999...the superb detective novels of Dennis Lehane—became a kind of lifeline for me.” -- Stephen King,
New York Times Book Review

“With sharp dialogue, inventively gruesome violence and the darkest of dark humor, Lehane’s fifth novel proves again that he’s the hippest heir of Hammett and Chandler.”  --
Publishers Weekly

“As in all the best hard-boiled series, each entry reveals more about the principal characters and their relationships in a violent, uncaring world where the only verities are the ones you establish for yourself and defend vigorously. Lehane has worked his way into the top echelon of crime writers.”  --
Booklist

“[Lehane]...writes like an angel on crystal meth.”  --
Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars This was much better than I had feared. Lehane produced an almost-final Kenzie and Gennaro story.
