“A Sentence-By-Sentence Pleasure” Declares The New York Times

Live By Night by Dennis LehaneOf the beginning of LIVE BY NIGHT, Janet Maslin of The New York Times says, “Cryptic, doomy, romantic yet ominous, this opening salvo signals the most important thing about Mr. Lehane’s latest: precision. All of Live By Night is written with that same degree of cleverness and care.” She concludes, “His idea of plain old crime is sophisticated, literary and barbed enough (‘How does anyone become so callous?’ ‘Takes less practice than you’d think’) that it makes this book a sentence-by-sentence pleasure. You are in the hands of an expert. And you’ll know it.” We wholeheartedly agree!
