If Dennis Lehane would have ripped off Charles Dickens and started this novel with “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” it would have been fitting.

It’s been eleven years since Lehane seemingly left his detective series starring Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro behind to do stand... ...more

When Amanda McCready goes missing over a decade after Patrick and Angela found her the first time, the couple set off to right a past wrong. But what does the Russian mob have to do with Amanda's disappearance? And has she really been kidnapped?

Moonlight Mile was Dennis Lehane's return to Kenzie... ...more

At the beginning of his writing career, Dennis Lehane wrote an excellent series of gritty P.I. novels set in Boston and featuring Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro, detectives who operated out of an office in a church bell tower. The 1998 entry was Gone, Baby, Gone, in which the detectives mounted... ...more

So I picked this up at my local superstore. Bargain bin…. $3 hard cover; Dennis Lehane why not? I had read Shutter Island and liked it. And so it was that I even started reading this, sans knowledge, until a nagging familiarity prevailed and I realized this was the sequel to Gone,Baby,Gone. Never... ...more

I have read all of Lehane's stand-alones, and especially enjoyed Mystic River. This is my first "Patrick and Angie" book, and I was thoroughly disappointed by it.

This novel appears to have been written primarily as a screenplay, one that panders to a fist-in-the-air high-five PC audience. If you... ...more

I saw Dennis Lehane speak at the Brooklyn book festival last year, and he was incredibly engaging. He was promoting Live by Night, which sounded very interesting, but wasn't out yet. So not wanting to leave empty handed, I wanted to pick up a book of his. There were copies of Mystic River and Gon... ...more

Upon reading reactions to this book on Amazon, I've come to the conclusion that I'm a different type of Patrick Kenzie/Angie Gennaro fan than most. While I've always enjoyed the series, it sometimes gets a bit too cartoony for my taste. By that I mean the mysteries often go a step or two past pla... ...more

I was one of those people that were enraged when Dennie Lehane gave that interview trashing the Patrick & Angie books. I love those books. They're real, raw, dark, and unflinching. To read him trashing them as crap was a blow and really offensive as a reader. Apparently he got the point and l... ...more

Dennis Lehane returns to the world of Boston PIs Patrick Kenzie and his partner, now wife, Angie Gennaro. He returns also to themes of parents and children that informed the five-book series Lehane produced in the 1990s. In Moonlight Mile, Patrick and Angie are themselves parents. Patrick is stil... ...more
By Adam (The United States) · ★★★☆☆ · December 30, 2010
Moonlit Mile the title continuing Lehane’s healthy obsession with Mick Taylor era Rolling Stones, is the final note in the Kenzie/Gennaro series. It gives bittersweet and optimistic closure that doesn’t feel pandering. This series was good for comic banter, moments of extreme darkness and violenc... ...more
