Meet Trevor Stone, a dying millionaire who hires Boston PI's Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro during during their time of grief to find his missing daughter, Desiree. Patrick and Angie find out that a colleague who was hired to find her has also disappeared. They find clues that take them to a local cult and eventually to the sunny state Florida. They'll learn what kind of person the real Trevor Stone is and what his true motives are. But if Trevor is not what he makes himself turn out to be, then can the same be said for Desiree?

This book has it all. A classic crime noire that stretches from Marblehead, MA down to the sunny beaches of Florida. There are surprising moments with Bubba, the vicious killer and possible best friend of Patrick, that every Kenzie-Gennaro fan will enjoy. There is a sad love story for one of the characters that almost makes the book feel like it was co-plotted by Raymond Chandler. The ending will surprise you and and just might shock you as well. And maybe it just might be a satisfactory ending after all the bloodshed from the antagonistic forces. By the time you turn the last page, the title will make more sense if it already doesn't. You'll find yourself re-reading the final chapter again just for the feeling. That or you're on a subway and got nothing else to read.

A must for all fans of a good thriller and/or mystery. You will not be disappointed. In fact give this book to anyone who likes to read a good book. Because this is definitely a page-turner.

I'm not fan of Dennis Lehane and was just looking for a new author since my favorites are dying one by one.
This is the fourth in the series, and they are pretty good. Good writing and some good characters, some of which are unbelievable.
I keep wondering why the publishers or authors feel a need to print a quote of some kind up front. This one, from St. Matthew 7:6, was about casting pearls to swine. I'm not religious but the quote wasn't right, and even I could tell using "pigs" was wrong.
That bothered me throughout the story, which had a good plot but was kind of slow to finish.
And what's all the sex about? Sort of reminds me of Stuart Woods' writing, where sex seems to detract from some of the boring parts.
I have two more of this author's books on my bookshelf, but I'm pretty sure they will be the last I read.

This is only the third novel in the thrilling series of Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro, but feels like one novel too many. The first two entries paint a gritty world of well formed characters in the seedy underbelly of their world. Lehane's writing was stellar and hufey affecting with his every passage. But even with the opening line you can tell something is off with this third entry.

Immediately the characters feel burdensome and old. Cliched depictions o a 70's B movie in the kind of story we've already seen and read a few dozen times. It reads like a writer who forgot the appeal of his characters and who angled them towards a televised depiction or maybe cinematic, though with this trite effort I don't even think Hollywood would come knocking.

Read it because you have to in order to finish the series. Otherwise, very little matters from this entry.

Dennis Lehane has written some terrific thrillers, but this isn't one of them. Kenzie & Gennaro are brutally abducted by an ailing tycoon who wants them to find his missing daughter. (Wouldn't a phone call have sufficed?) And then the plot gets really silly. Powerful & clever villains are beaten up, threatened with a horrible death, but then let go after they promise to behave themselves. Characters described as smart act like middle schoolers with raging hormones. A character with a meticulously clean, evidence-free home leaves a newspaper clipping on a refrigerator where you'd think a police investigation might have found it, but no, it's been left for Patrick & Angie to "discover" after ransacking the rest of the place. An evildoer kills off a variety of individuals b/c they know too much, but allows the most knowledgeable witness to live - b/c otherwise, Patrick & Angie wouldn't have a clue (so to speak). Coincidences are piled upon implausibilities. The only reason I don't completely hate this novel is that Lehane has such a strong & vivid sense of place - in this case, Boston (as usual) & the Florida Gulf region - & his descriptive powers make at least some of the book worth reading. I read somewhere that Lehane got bored with the Kenzie & Gennaro stories after awhile. Me too.
