Just finished devouring this book and had to comment.
I've read all of Dennis Lehane's books, and this, in my opinion, surpasses the best of either the Kenzie/Genaro series or (to my mind) his previous best book, Mystic River. Steeped in the period, with superbly taut dialogue and characterisation, a riveting and flowing plot,and the final pathos, this book sings. And,in Joe Coughin,a true and fully realised character, a man of his time, part gangster part hero, but always human. Great stuff Dennis, can't wait for the next one
