So I picked this up at my local superstore. Bargain bin…. $3 hard cover; Dennis Lehane why not? I had read Shutter Island and liked it. And so it was that I even started reading this, sans knowledge, until a nagging familiarity prevailed and I realized this was the sequel to Gone,Baby,Gone. Never read that, but saw the movie.
The theme of moral dilemma that permeates that story is alive and well here. Only different…… more grey and black, less white!
Thinking this was a 3.5, I pondered having read the sequel only, considered; having still remained engaged throughout, and generously bumped it up to 4.
I’m not saying I will never read Gone,Baby,Gone but right now I am thinking I should read a different Lehane. Any recommendations out there?
