Staff Pick

Dennis Lehane revisits his Kenzie-Gennaro series, and the result is a leaner, more adult novel that casts these characters in more complex shades of grey. Moonlight Mile is a whodunnit and a white-knuckled thriller that shows Lehane at the peak of his skills.

Review-A-Day

"It's often said that detective novels deal with the ghosts of the past as much as the crimes of the present, and that's certainly true here. Kenzie is in turmoil over a fateful decision he made more than a decade earlier and its ramifications in the life of an innocent girl. Whatever has become of Amanda McCready since then, Patrick Kenzie can't help feeling responsible. The novel provides plenty of reasons for him to feel awful, as its irresistibly compelling story unfolds." Chris Bolton, Powells.com (Read the entire Powells.com review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane delivers an explosive tale of integrity and vengeance — heralding the long-awaited return of private investigators Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro.

Amanda McCready was four years old when she vanished from a Boston neighborhood twelve years ago. Desperate pleas for help from the child's aunt led investigators Kenzie and Gennaro to take on the case. The pair risked everything to find the young girl — only to orchestrate her return to a neglectful mother and a broken home.

Now Amanda is sixteen — and gone again. A stellar student, brilliant but aloof, she seemed destined to escape her upbringing. Yet Amanda's aunt is once more knocking on Patrick Kenzie's door, fearing the worst for the little girl who has blossomed into a striking, clever young woman — a woman who hasn't been seen in weeks.

Haunted by their consciences, Kenzie and Gennaro revisit the case that troubled them the most. Their search leads them into a world of identity thieves, methamphetamine dealers, a mentally unstable crime boss and his equally demented wife, a priceless, thousand-year-old cross, and a happily homicidal Russian gangster. It's a world in which motives and allegiances constantly shift and mistakes are fatal.

In their desperate fight to confront the past and find Amanda McCready, Kenzie and Gennaro will be forced to question if it's possible to do the wrong thing and still be right or to do the right thing and still be wrong. As they face an evil that goes beyond broken families and broken dreams, they discover that the sins of yesterday don't always stay buried and the crimes of today could end their lives.

Review:

"An old case takes on new dimensions in Lehane's sixth crime novel to feature Boston PIs Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro, last seen in 1999's Prayers for Rain. Twelve years earlier, in 1998's Gone, Baby, Gone, Patrick and Angie investigated the kidnapping of four-year-old Amanda McCready. The case drove a temporary wedge between the pair after Patrick returned Amanda to her mother's neglectful care. Now Patrick and Angie are married, the parents of four-year-old Gabriella, and barely making ends meet with Patrick's PI gigs while Angie finishes graduate school. But when Amanda's aunt comes to Patrick and tells him that Amanda, now a 16-year-old honor student, is once again missing, he vows to find the girl, even if it means confronting the consequences of choices he made that have haunted him for years. While Lehane addresses much of the moral ambiguity from Gone, this entry lacks some of the gritty rawness of the early Kenzie and Gennaro books. (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Review:

"[Lehane has] emerged from the whodunit ghetto as a broader and more substantial talent....When it comes to keeping readers exactly where he wants them, Mr. Lehane offers a bravura demonstration of how it's done." New York Times

Review:

"An older Patrick may have lost a step physically, but he is incredibly cool under pressure and still able to toss off the most cynically funny dialogue.... [An] exciting and fast-paced read." Booklist

Review:

A modern master of suspense revives the series that initially earned him a hard-core following....Welcome back." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Moonlight Mile is the first Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro suspense novel in more than a decade from the acclaimed, New York Times-bestselling master of the new noir, Dennis Lehane. An explosive tale of vengeance and redemption — the brilliant sequel to Gone, Baby, GoneMoonlight Mile returns Lehane's unforgettable and deeply human detective duo to the mean streets of blue collar Boston to investigate the second disappearance of Amanda McCready, now sixteen years old. After his remarkable success with Mystic River, Shutter Island, and The Given Day, the celebrated author whom the Washington Post praises as "one of those brave new detective stylists who is not afraid of fooling around with the genre's traditions" returns to his roots — and the result, as always, is electrifying.

Synopsis:

A Boston narcotic detective's search for his lost gun reveals a network of corruption and cover-up that reaches the highest levels of the city in this propulsive debut, first in an exciting new series in the tradition of Dennis Lehane and Robert Parker.

Synopsis:

At crime scenes, Eddy Harkness is a human Ouija board, a brilliant young detective with a knack for finding the hidden something—cash, drugs, guns, bodies. But Eddys swift rise in an elite narcotics unit is derailed by the death of a Red Sox fan in the chaos of a World Series win, a death some camera-phone-wielding witnesses believe he could have prevented. Scapegoated, Eddy is exiled to his hometown just outside Boston, where he empties parking meters and struggles to redeem his disgraced family name.

Then one night Harknesss police-issue Glock disappears. Unable to report the theft, Harkness starts a secret search—just as a string of fatal accidents lead him to uncover a new, dangerous smart drug, Third Rail. With only a plastic disc gun to protect him, Harkness begins a high-stakes investigation that leads him into the darkest corners of the city, where politicians and criminals intertwine to deadly effect.

With a textured sense of place, a nuanced protagonist, and a story that takes off from page one and culminates in a startling finale, Third Rail has all the elements of a breakout mystery success.

Lehane can do no wrong! Although best know for his huge -- and often filmed novels -- such as MYSTIC RIVER, SHUTTER ISLAND, and the incredible THE GIVEN DAY -- his Gennaro and Kenzie novels while on a smaller scale, give to Boston the power and grit that readers relate to Block's New York and (fill in the blank)'s San Francisco. MOONLIGHT MILE completes, expands, and wraps-up early plot points that turn out to be more than anyone expected. And for Lehane, that's saying something!
