Publisher Description

As richly complex and brutal as the terrain it depicts, here is the mesmerizing, darkly original novel that heralded the arrival of Dennis Lehane, the master of the new noir—and introduced Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro, his smart and tough private investigators weaned on the blue-collar streets of Dorchester.

A cabal of powerful Boston politicians is willing to pay Kenzie and Gennaro big money for a seemingly small job: to find a missing cleaning woman who stole some secret documents. As Kenzie and Gennaro learn, however, this crime is no ordinary theft. It's about justice, about right and wrong. But in Boston, finding the truth isn't just a dirty business . . . it's deadly.

Catch up before the next one comes out

I began reading Lehane's books about PIs Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro after reading his excellent novel "Mystic River." I found both characters to be engaging and the plots to be rock solid detective novels. After reading all of them, I have been waiting for him to write another, and my wait will be over on November 2, 2010, when "Moonlight Mile" is released. In case you didn't know or remember, one of their books was adapted by Ben Affleck (a fan of these novels as well) as the terrific film "Gone, Baby, Gone."
