Master of new noir Dennis Lehane magnificently evokes the dignity and savagery of working-class Boston in Darkness, Take My Hand, a terrifying tale of redemption. Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro's latest client is a prominent Boston psychiatrist, running scared from a vengeful Irish mob. The private investigators know about cold-blooded retribution. Born and bred on the mean streets of blue-collar Dorchester, they've seen the darkness that lives in the hearts of the unfortunate. But an evil for which even they are unprepared is about to strike, as secrets that have long lain dormant erupt, setting off a chain of violent murders that will stain everything - including the truth. With razor-sharp dialogue and penetrating prose, Darkness, Take My Hand is another superior crime novel from the author of Mystic River; Gone, Baby, Gone; and Shutter Island.

Professional reviews

"Plenty of bad guys with long memories are walking streets of Boston in this mystery featuring P.I.s Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro (the heroes of GONE, BABY, GONE). Someone is killing, viciously, and the only clue appears to be a connection to Kenzie. He and his streetwise partner, Gennaro, must navigate emotional baggage, new and old relationships, and sexual tension to find the killer. Jonathan Davis gives an FBI agent a stern, deep tone, perfect for his commanding authority. A prisoner intones a quiet, crazed personality. And a henchman screeches because of damaged vocal chords. For these, Davis is to be commended. His only fault: His Boston accents are negligible at best, virtually missing and sorely needed. But the absence doesn't mar a thrilling story that has overall excellent narration. M.B. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
