My first Dennis Lehane book and it wasn’t bad. Kinsey and Gennaro are friends who run an private investigation business. They’re hired to find the wareabouts of a woman who took some documents and disappeared.

It took me awhile to get into the story only because all I could picture was Casey Affleck at Kinsey and it just didn’t seem to fit unless you’re actually watching Gone Baby Gone, which is based on another book by Lehane. Once I was halfway through I could slowly start putting his image out of my mind and focus on the story at hand.

It’s an easy read and intriguing. I will be picking up the next in the series in the near future and continuing on their journey.

  1. Thanks for the review. I’ve read other Lehane books, but not this one. Sounds interesting.
