Very dark and very predictable. Gruesome and sadistic with cardboard characters. What a waste of time.

(The second book in the Kenzie and Gennaro series)

This book is typical Dennis Lehane: a dark and disturbing but entertaining page turner. I intend to read all of his books.

(eBook) Seems to me that all the characters were psychos with zero social values. Also, hard to accept the plot that the ring of serial killings originated from an event thirty years ago. Nonetheless, a "bloody" fast read. From the same esteemed author of Mystic River, 2001.

Very well written! Very suspenseful and thrilling with great characters and vivid detail. Love the not-so-perfect PI's. Not for the squeamish!

Lehane does not get enough credit for this great series because of the success of Mystic River (great) and Shutter Island (all right). The only downside to any of them is the 'Bubba' Character who seems to run a bit out of reality sometimes. Other times, he's perfectly reasonable.
