I've seen some complaints on this book being two different stories, and about the ending. I'll tell you right up front, I won't spoil either, but I will say, I quite enjoyed the full ride, two stories, ending, and all.

I'll fully declare my Lehane fan-card. I became a fan with the brilliant Mystic River, then went back and read every single word the man had published. I've long declared that The Given Day was my favourite book of the year when it was published (though I think each of the two follow ups did offer diminishing returns).

I was deliriously excited to see a standalone novel. Haven't gotten one of those from Lehane in a while. And it was also contemporary. Bonus.

So, I dived in. There's certain authors that I don't even bother to read the back cover or investigate the book in any way. Lehane is one. Elmore Leonard, Andrew Pyper, Stephen King, and Jack Ketchum are a few of the others. So I went into the story completely cold, knowing nothing about it.

At first I thought it was going to be the mystery of Rachel's father. Then it seemed to morph into wonderfully sweet romance. Then it took a dark turn. Then it was full-on action for the last third.

So, was it a little schizophrenic? Absolutely. But Lehane has done this is the past, led us down a path, only to take an unexpected turn and flip the story on its head. So I'm completely okay with that. Life is a bit messy at times, and he doesn't mind making it the same for his characters.

All I'll say about the ending is that it's a touch--just a touch, mind you--open-ended. And seriously, with all that led up to that point, if it doesn't satisfy you, then I'll say you completely missed the point of the novel...and the thing that makes that messiness all right.

The point of the story is Rachel's journey from who she was, to who she will be.

Understand that, and you'll be fine with the book. ( )

A slow boiling thriller. Rachel Childs is raised by her domineering mother, always waiting to discover the identity of her father, but her mother's sudden death leaves a gaping hole. She becomes a successful reporter until an on-air meltdown and an unhappy marriage, leads her to become a shut-in. Then, a relationship with the caring Brian Delacroix coaxes her out of her exile only to discover that Brian is not what she thought either. Lehane has done much better work than this, but he can still spin a yarn. ( )

Yikes! You just feel the other shoe is going to drop throughout the whole book, and when it does you don't see it coming. And then it continues to drop and drop again and for the most part you haven't got a clue. Great writing. ( )

suspense fiction. This was the first time I'd read Dennis Lehane, though I'd seen the movie based on "The Drop" and had heard good things about Shutter Island (the book) and "Mystic River" (the movie based on his book). So I was expecting some interesting plot twists and was not disappointed. In addition to Lehane, if you are looking for more suspense fiction, I would recommend Nick Petrie (although his protagonist is more of your traditional macho male). ( )

My first Dennis Lehane; for sure not my last Dennis Lehane. I finished this book a week ago and am still thinking about it. Had a hard time picking up another book because I just wanted to ponder (and savor) this one a little longer. I can't think of many authors who are sharper, wittier, more engaging writers than Lehane. I had to open the dictionary a few times while reading it. 😬And that ending! I was 100% satisfied, which is a pretty rare event. 10 out of 10, recommend! ( )
