The tragedy of Karen’s death is presented so well. Other than that, I’d say this one was almost as good as Gone Baby Gone. Also to handle subject material such as he does and brings the reader back for more and rant and rave at people who have not experienced his work is testament to how highly regarded this guy is.

I loved this book. The book is so well structured that succeeding scenes almost naturally flow out of their predecessors. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

If you wanna check out contemporary fiction but typical route is not your thing, then this series is the perfect in between.

I give 4 star I know that this is part of the series but I only have this book so I read it anyway.

William Morrow and Company. Lists with This Book. Wishing to be saved? Want to Read saving…. Like all great mystery writers, Lehane showed me the way with one hand while picking my pocket with the other.

I don’t have many regrets, but one that I do have is having watched Mystic River when I did. Another winner by Lehane, the premise was good, the suspense was nerve-racking, but the only thing preventing me from giving this book 5 stars is the abrupt ending, other than that it was a great book! It’s frustrating because what you have is a five star book for most of it’s page count, which completely fumbles in the home stretch.


Still, I have to give it a high recommendation because this guy writes a hell of a story. Things get much worse about two-thirds into the novel: And, sadly, again I don’t really have time to be writing a review, but I wanted to put one out anyway-Because my Patrick and Bubba and Angie deserve one. Other books in the series. Perhaps part of my enjoyment of this novel stems from Lehane’s use of the numerous geographical sites in and around Boston which are totally familiar to me.

After a few hundred bites or so, though, I thought, fuck Paryers. Perhaps one of the best reading decis Hmmmm The current novel is a lheane, well-written, and captivating book until about one third into the story. Some of the story was very hard to prwyers, I had to keep flipping back to find out what was going on, but in the end it all started to come together, like connect the dots.

Say this for Lehane he writes a good villain. Patrick and Angie have gone up against a lot of very bad people in their time as detectives.

His case sees him reunited with Angela and spending a lot of time with Bubba Rogowski, all the while learning more than he ever wanted to know about the Nichols family.

By then it is too late, as Karen is dead.

Prayers for Rain

Not long after, Karen is found dead after an apparent suicide. There are some loose ends which are not tied up cleanly.

Suddenly you are halfway through the book and you just started it. Still, up until then, it had been great. But news of Nichols’ denniw leads Kenzie to recall, with some guilt, a loose end from her case.


Paperback Amazon Barnes and Noble. The main problem with this book was that his lead characters constantly did such unpredictable, unprofessional, unbelievable, and entirely unnecessary things to achieve their goal. Yet the good stuff is balanced by gratuitous scenes of violence and brutality: Whether manipulating third parties into doing his dirty work, destroying the innocent for the fun of it, or leading poor Kenzie on a literal game of cat and mouse.

I like the book. This minor point probably would not have bugged me if I wasn’t already pissed off about the bad guy origin. The few quiescent periods in this very emotional story offer little respite from unexpected action.

Kenzie is drawn into the investigation of the suicide of a former client, Karen Nichols, who has killed herself by jumping off a Boston Landmark naked. The parishioners looked dazed, but happy.

It made the book about pages too long. After Patrick succeeds in suggesting to the fellow that he would survive longer if he left her alone, the situation quiets down.

Welcome sarcastic descriptions, infuriating and hilarious comments, smartass answers! In the Reacher novels, all aspects of the hero consistent values, propensity for violence, temptation, etc.

The first half of this book, discovering the psychological abuse of Karen, and KNOWING how many men do this kind of thing tain women every day is so hard, and worse is knowing that there is so little we can do to stop that
