From New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane comes this epic, unflinching tale of the making and unmaking of a gangster in the Prohibition Era of the Roaring Twenties—now a Warner Bros. movie starring Ben Affleck, Elle Fanning, Zoe Saldana, and Sienna Miller.

Meticulously researched and artfully told, Live by Night is the riveting story of one man’s rise from Boston petty thief to the Gulf Coast’s most successful rum runner, and it proves again that the accolades New York Times bestseller Lehane consistently receives are well deserved. He is indeed, “a master” (Philadelphia Inquirer) whose “true literary forefathers include John Steinbeck as well as Raymond Chandler” (Baltimore Sun). And, “Boy, does he know how to write” (Elmore Leonard).

Customer Reviews of Live By Night: A Novel

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a great read! You don't have to read the previous book to this series, The Given Day, to know or get into this book. The Given Day does help to give a better understanding of the characters. With that said, when I had heard, as Ben Affleck was reading this book, he had to create a movie(to which he did), I had to read this book. I can't seem to put this book down. It's just so good. It is set in the 1920's and 1930's. Live by Night is a crime noir, so it's a gangster type book.Not normally a fan of this genre, however, I am enjoy it. This author is fantastic with Shutter Island and Gone, Baby, Gone, now with Live by Night.
