5.0 out of 5 stars Lived up to expectations, 8 Oct 2012
This review is from: Live by Night (Kindle Edition)
I had never really got into Dennis Lehane until The Given Day which I thought was a masterpiece with great characters, wonderful plotting, historically accurate and the sort of book that just draws you into it.

Happily Live by Night, whilst not exactly a sequel but concentrates on the life and times of one of the minor characters from The Given Day ramps up the excitement levels even more.

Lehane is incapable of writing a clumsy or boring sentence and the book is a riveting account of gangster life in Prohibition times America and Cuba and sets the bar at an extremely high level.

He is not as well known this side of the Atlantic as he should be and I hope that this excellently written and exciting book gets him the exposure that he fully deserves.
