Rated 4 out of 5 by from In depth characters I read this book after finishing Live by Night and World Gone By, it is a great novel that describes the complex characters and their back story. I could related few of the incident to the other two novels and have a better understanding of the character. I would recommend this novel to a friend but it isn't my favorite from Dennis Lehane.
