Preview — Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane
Moonlight Mile (Kenzie & Gennaro #6)
“[Lehane has] emerged from the whodunit ghetto as a broader and more substantial talent....When it comes to keeping readers exactly where he wants them, Mr. Lehane offers a bravura demonstration of how it’s done.”
—New York Times
Moonlight Mile is the first Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro suspense novel in more than a decade from the acclaimed, New York Times bestselling m...more
It’s been eleven years since Lehane seemingly left his detective series starring Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro behind to do stand-alone novels and work on HBO’s The Wire. The last decade has been both good and bad to the couple. The economic collapse has hit them hard, and Patrick has been forced to do free-lance work for a large ...more
Moonlight Mile was Dennis Lehane's return to Kenzie and Gennaro, or are they Kenzie and Kenzie now, after a long absence. While Patrick and Angela may have lost a step or two after their domestication, I don't think Lehane has.
Moonlight Mile starts simply ...more

So here we are, the last Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro book published. And by the tone in this book I would say that Lehane has written the last book about the couple. Yes I know Patrick shows up in FaceOff but that story takes place before this story and is a short story.
I found it quite suitable that the last book is a kind of continuation for Gone, Baby, Gone with Patrick and Angie once again trying to ...more
The theme of moral dilemma that permeates that story is alive and well here. Only different…… more grey and black, less white!
Thinking this was a 3.5, I pondered having re ...more
This novel appears to have been written primarily as a screenplay, one that panders to a fist-in-the-air high-five PC audience. If you removed all the unnecessary filler of political references, you could probably cut out 40 pages. (I agree with many of the references, but I don't agree that they belong in this book). It was overt and p ...more
It's been 12 years, and everybody's wondering what ever became of Kenzie and Gennaro after they found four-year-old Amanda McCready. They're now Kenzie and Kenzie, middle-aged, with a four-year-old girl of their own. Amanda McCready is now almost 17, and she's missing again. Patrick Kenzie is still h ...more
Lehane's characters rang true, especially old favorites, Kenzie and Gennaro and now their little daughter,Gabby. Gone, Baby, Gone , another of my admired tales by this author, was recalled with the return of the star char ...more
For the most part I liked it. It was interesting that he went back to the characters from Gone, Baby, Gone. I don't find that to be the strongest of these boo ...more
As we begin the story, Kenzie and Gennaro are married and have a four-year old daughter. Kenzie is trying to get a steady job at a firm ...more
In this book, the girl is now 16 and is missing again–a runaway this time. Her mom (who, of course, is the same stellar parent she was in Gone Baby Gone) says her daughter is fine, but her aunt doesn’t believe it. She gets Patrick to agree to look for her again.
I love Patrick and Angie and I was really happy when I read that there was going ...more
Patrick and Angie have aged in real time, so this is a different take on some favorite characters: they have a daughter of their own now, and they aren't quite so r ...more

This man can flat out write. He has penned many a memorable line such as public outcry was loud enough to lead ships ashore through night fog and he can perfectly set a scene or describe a character i ...more
Yes, the material is serious stuff; (clunk, clunk) Russian mafia, child kidnapping, child trafficking, murder, blood and gore, but dialogue is hilarious. Truly laugh-out-loud. Clever, quick, witty, and I really wish that Dennis ...more
This is the latest in the series of the Boston-based detective team of Patrick and Angie, now married with a 4-year old daughter. It is also somewhat of a sequel to Gone Baby Gone, as Patrick once again must find Amanda McCready who is now 16 years old, very independent with a mind of her own.
The author does a great job of catching us up on what's happened since Gone Baby Gone. It's been many years since that book's publication so I was happy to have the refreshe ...more
Despite the B level screenplay quality writing, LeHane still somehow manages to allow pretention and condescension drip from every page. The only villain who rivals the Russian gangsters is the (totall ...more

Or maybe I will.
Maybe I do.
Driving down 93, I realized once and for all, that I love the things that chafe. The things that fill me with stress so total I can’t remember when a block of it didn’t rest on top of my heart. I love what, if broken, can’t be repaired. What, if lost can’t be replaced.
I love my burdens.”
