Miami Heralds Lehane As "Master of Suspense"

The Miami Herald also had some very nice things to say about CORONADO:

Hardcore fans may object to the fact that the latest work from suspense master Dennis Lehane involves short stories instead of serial killers. But a wide streak of Lehane’s vivid and melancholy darkness winds through this mean, gripping collection, buffeting its bleak landscapes and shaping its desperate characters.

Lehane is the author of a mind-boggling array of excellent crime fiction: the wrenching Mystic River, turned into a terrific film by Clint Eastwood; the creepy, heart-stopping Shutter Island, set at a hospital for the criminally insane; Shamus Award winner A Drink Before the War, which introduced private investigator Patrick Kenzie of South Boston; Darkness, Take My Hand, the second book in the Kenzie series and one of the scariest thrillers ever written.

The review continues here.
