Not just your ordinary suspense/crime novel. Dennis Lehane's characters are interesting, deep and well...mysterious. The discovery of the real murderer/s though didn't quite shock me as I figured it out already 3/4 of the book. But all in all, it was an interesting read. Colorful personalities, great dialogue, masterful prose. Will definitely read more of Lehane's novels. And, I'm more than interested now to watch the movie version.

Jerald Vernon Torres the movie is quite better
I suppose...

Lynai Hi Jerald. Haven't seen the movie yet. But I like better Lehane's Shutter Island than this one.

Jerald Vernon Torres the movie on shutter island is miserable but in mystic river the movie is great. For me the movie is better, but it's up to you to decide.
