Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Great I wasn't really into this book. I didn't find the characters to have too much depth or the plot to be overly interesting. I'm not generally a fan of the crime drama genre so maybe that is why I didn't enjoy it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lamentation Not a great mystery novel. Characters are rather wooden and plot holds no great surprises. I doubt that I will read another of this author'books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More than just a crime novel... I was amazed with how quickly characters developed into their own unique personalities in such deeply interesting ways. The story is compelling and incredibly well told - but, it's the characters - how they grow, how they respond to the story and how they interact with one another that makes this book such an excellent read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Characters... I didn't ever want to put this book down. The characters were perfectly written with their own personality, pace and purpose. The flow of the story was effortless and all elements hung together beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read This book was a brilliant page turner that makes you wish it wouldn't end as much as you wish for a resolution in the story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New-to-me author I consumed this book in a couple of days and will be reading the rest of his books within the next few months. Dennis LeHane's writing style is so smooth and enjoyable. His characters are believable and you feel a part of their life's. I certainly hope he keeps up the great work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging. Thought-provoking. Well-written and engaging thriller! Never boring. Felt a connection with the characters and understood their perspectives. This book, although a thriller, is heart-warming in a sense that it depicts the reality of relationships and family and loyalty and the reasoning behind life choices. Touching!
