"[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 master of the new noir, Dennis Lehane. An explosive tale of vengeance and redemption--the brilliant sequel to Gone, Baby, Gone--Moonlight Mile returns Lehane's unforgettable and deeply human detective duo to the mean streets of blue collar Boston to investigate the second disappearance of Amanda McCready, now sixteen years old. After his remarkable success with Mystic River, Shutter Island, and The Given Day, the celebrated author whom the Washington Post praises as, "one of those brave new detective stylists who is not afraid of fooling around with the genre's traditions," returns to his roots--and the result, as always, is electrifying.

Yay! Patrick & Angie! Well written (of course!), snappy dialogue -- some of it even laugh out loud funny -- well-rounded lovable characters, & a solid storyline. I suspect my enjoyment of this book was as much meeting my old friends & as it was the excellence of Lehane's effort. So sad the series is over :( Having said that, I did think Angie punked out -- she used to be such a strong, feminist character with lots of don't-mess-with-me moves -- she saved Patrick's life more than once -- sadly, she seems a different character now that she's a 'mom'.

No one speak to me. I'm in mourning that this series is over.

Not my usual fare, but I enjoyed it. Well-told story with compelling characters.

I tried Dennis Lehane out of hunger and I'm almost certain I read an okay one by him a week or two ago. But this one seemed to me to be badly contrived and poorly executed. I got through a chapter or three before I decided to put it into the 'check-back-in' pile without wasting more time on it.

A great read, like prett much everything by Lehane. I enjoyed some of his other novels more, but it's still pretty good.

Not as good as "Mystic River" but I kept turning the pages! I intend to read all of Lehane's novels. A great writer!

Follow up to author's previous book Gone Baby Gone. Looks at the definitions of morality and ethics. A good book worth reading.

Typical Dennis Lehane -- admist chaos, a storyline weaves its way through and everything starts to make sense.

Just finished this book. My first Lehane novel and I really enjoyed it. The characters had a great sense of humor that did not detract from the drama of the storyline. Good twists throughout.
