"There are threads in our lives. You pull one, and everything else gets affected." When they were children, Sean Devine, Jimmy Marcus, and Dave Boyle were friends. But then a strange car pulled tip to their street. One boy got into the car, two did not, and something terrible happened -- something that ended their friendship and changed all three boys forever. Twenty-five years later, Sean Devine is a homicide detective. Jimmy Marcus is an ex-con who owns a corner store. And Dave Boyle is trying to hold his marriage together and keep his demons at bay -- demons that urge him to do terrible things. When Jimmy Marcus's daughter is found murdered, Sean Devine is assigned to the case. His personal life unraveling, he must go back into a world he thought he'd left behind to confront not only the violence, of the present but the nightmares of his past. His investigation brings him into conflict with Jimmy Marcus, who finds that his old criminal impulses tempt him to solve the crime with brutal justice. And then there is Dave Boyle, who came home the night Jimmy's daughter died covered with someone else's blood. While Sean Devine attempts to use the law to return peace and order to the neighborhood, Jimmy Marcus finds his need for vengeance pushing him ever closer to a moral abyss from which lie wont be able to return, and Dave's wife, Celeste, sleeps at night with a man she fears may very well be a monster. a monster who fathered her child and hides his true nature from everyone, possibly even himself. A tense and unnerving psychological thriller, Mystic River is also an epic novel of love and loyalty, faith and family, in which people irrevocably marked by the past find themselves on a collision course with the darkest truths of their own hidden selves.… (mais)

Dennis Lehane's writing is deftly crafted to weave you into the folds of his character's lives. He doesn't just tell you a tale, he makes you feel the story. Parts of the story are predictable, but there are only so many paths that an author can take. Lehane uses this to his advantage, instilling the reader with a sense of dread, creating a nail-biting suspense around what you know is coming. Not many writers can do that. I would definitely recommended the book and would read more by this author. ( )

More introspective and less action, or just a lot slower, than the usual "Dennis Lehane", but still a nice read. ( )

I really enjoyed this well-written mystery. It had all the grit and suspense you want and was hard to put down. ( )

Cuando eran niños, Sean Devine, Jimmy Marcus y Dave Boyle eran amigos, amigos de correrías. Hasta que un día ocurrió algo terrible, Dave fue secuestrado mientras jugaban en la calle. Desde ese día sus vidas cambiarían para siempre. Veinticinco años mas tarde, Sean trabaja en el departamento de homicidios; Jimy- ex convicto- tiene una tienda en el barrio, y Dave intenta salvar su matrimonio y mantener sus demonios a raya, demonios que le incitan a hacer cosas terribles. Cuando la hija de Jimmy muere asesinada, Sean se hace cargo del aso y esta muerte lo obliga a volver a un mundo que pensaba haber dejado atrás, a enfrentarse no sólo con la violencia presente, sino también con las pesadillas de su pasado.

When they are kids, Dave, Sean, and Jimmy play together in the streets of East Buckingham. One day, Dave gets in a car, Sean and Jimmy do not, and everything changes. Twenty five years later, Jimmy is an ex-con who owns a corner store, Sean is a state police detective, and Dave is a bit of a lost soul who has trouble holding a job. One night, Jimmy's 17 year old daughter is brutally murdered, Dave comes home to his wife covered in blood, and Sean catches the case. Past influences, maybe dictates, the present in this moving novel. ( )

[He] did not understand women. It wasn't the
way bartenders or comedians didn't understand
women, it was the way poor people didn't
understand the economy. You could stand
outside the Girard Bank Building every day of
your life and never guess anything about what
went on in there. That's why, in their hearts,
they'd always rather stick up a 7-Eleven.
- Pete Dexter, God's Pocket
There is no street with mute stones
and no house without echoes. - Gongora
