Moonlight Mile picks up the story of Amanda McCready ten years after the end of Gone, Baby, Gone. Amanda is missing again and Patrick Kenzie gets roped in to find her, with help from his firecracker sidekick, Angie Gennaro.
Dennis Lehane knows how to pack in details, keep the action moving, and make the dialog snap. Between the Russian mob and assorted thugs and cons, there is no knowing who will shoot who next or where the story will land. It is exciting right up to the last page.
If you would like your review of this book listed here, please leave a comment with a link and I will add it.
It is not necessary to read Gone, Baby, Gone before Moonlight Mile in order to understand the story. Moonlight Mile rehashes enough of the earlier story to give context. It also spoils the ending of Gone, Baby, Gone, so if you are inclined to read both, read them in order.
I won Moonlight Mile in a giveaway on Knitting and Sundries -- Thanks Julie! I should have read it right away, but fell down in my blogger duties. I finally read it now as one of my books for the TBR challenges I am doing this year:
- MT. TBR CHALLENGE (hosted by Bev on My Reader's Block)
- OFF THE SHELF CHALLENGE (hosted by Bonnie on Bookish Ardour)
- TBR PILE CHALLENGE (hosted by Adam on Roof Beam Reader)
