Author Info
Dennis Lehane
A native of Dorchester, Massachusetts, a neighborhood of Boston--the city that was the muse for much of his oeuvre--Dennis Lehane was born to Irish immigrant parents in 1965. Before publishing his first novel in 1994, A DRINK BEFORE THE WAR, Lehane held many odd jobs (including as a limo driver, a waiter, and a counselor for abused and mentally handicapped kids) and attended Eckerd College. His debut novel introduced a pair of private investigator heroes who would tether his subsequent four novels and help him establish his name: Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro. The Kenzie-Gennaro novel GONE, BABY, GONE was adapted for the screen in 2007, although Lehane's Hollywood career began in 2003 with the critically acclaimed adaptation starting Sean Penn of his 2001 novel, MYSTIC RIVER. A sophisticated and powerful novel that explores the gritty streets of Boston's roughest neighborhoods and the organized crime families that dominate that world, MYSTIC RIVER launched Lehane's career to another level, and he followed it up in fine form with works like the psychological suspense novel SHUTTER ISLAND and the historical drama THE GIVEN DAY. In 2010 Lehane returned to his classic characters with another Kenzie-Gennaro story in MOONLIGHT MILE. Lehane has also written for the stage (CORONADO) and was a contributing writer for several episodes of the television program, THE WIRE. Lehane still resides in Boston, with his second wife.
Praise
"...he's [Lehane] created a villain who's both surprising and grimly fascinating: The kind of figure one hates but can't stop reading about."
"...Lehane is one of those brave new detective stylists who is not afraid of fooling around with the genre's traditions....This is his second Kenzie and Gennaro saga, and clearly their unquiet efforts to age with dignity and learn something about love are are a sustaining mark of this series. Combine that attention to the young detectives with taut writing and an insistent focus on the grim intimacies of crime and care that sustain them amid the changes that have come to their old Boston neighborhood, and you have a very winning series indeed."
From the Publisher
Annotation Boston psychiatrist, Diandra Warren, fears that her life and that of her son may be in danger when one of her patients reveals that she has been abused by a Irish Mafia thug. Warren recruits the investigative team of Patrick Kenzie and Angie Genarro, who grew up with the Mafia heavy, to protect her and her son. Meanwhile, a woman is found dead and crucified in a slaying eerily similar to one that occurred some 20 years ago.
