In a clear protective Brodart mylar cover. Dennis Lehane returns with the second novel featuring the gritty tough talking private eye duo of Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro. It's an Indian summer day when Patrick and Angela take on a the case of a prominent psychiatrist whose son has inadvertently angered a made member of the Boston Irish Mafia. As they're drawn in deeper, the bodies start to pile up and Patrick and Angela realize there's more to the case that what they've told, since the prime suspect has been incarcerated for more than twenty years. This is an excellently written hard-boiled mystery that never lets up until the last word. Highly recommended and a worthy follow-up to Lehane's first mystery in this series and Shamus award-winning first novel, A Drink Before the War. Rubbing to flaps, light bump to spine, small nick to rear board. Bookseller Inventory # 1002091
Synopsis: When wisecracking detectives Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro agree to protect the son of a prominent psychiatrist who believes she may have angered the Boston Irish Mafia, they soon find bodies are piling up around them - seemingly unconnected with their case. And what's more all the clues point to an unlikely suspect - a serial killer who has been in prison for twenty years, so he can't be killing again, can he?
As Angie and Patrick try to find out what kind of human being could perform such horrifying acts of rape, mutilation, torture and dismemberment, they discover that the killer's motive is disturbingly rooted in their own distant past. In a series of heart-stopping climaxes that grow ever more terrifying and bloody, the two work frantically with the Boston cops, the FBI, the local Mafia, and the folks from their old neighbourhood to unearth the killer before they become victims themselves.
Product Description: A thriller about a series of horrifying murders featuring the wisecracking detectives, Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro. By the author of "A Drink Before the War".
