Suffers in comparison to The Given Day,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live by Night (Kindle Edition)
I read this immediately after finishing The Given Day and I have to say that it suffers in comparison. Not as richly textured or ambitious, this book is more a run of the mill "gangster" novel, albeit set in a novel location with some characters that are not necessarily of the Sicilian stereotype, although it has to be said some still are. However, in comparison with other thrillers this is still head and shoulders above most, an excellent page turner that does fulfill the "just one more chapter" brief, it's just not as good as his previous book.
