Moonlight Mile

Moonlight Mile

Sixteen-year-old Amanda McCready has disappeared. Her anxious aunt contacts Patrick Kenzie to investigate. It is not the first time she has gone missing, as Patrick well knows – he was the investigator who worked on her case when she was kidnapped before, as a four-year-old.

But this is not a simple case of a runaway girl. In fact, nothing in Amanda’s life has been simple: brought up by the world’s worst mother, neglected throughout her childhood, she has nonetheless blossomed into a formidably intelligent young woman. A young woman so bright that she can seemingly out-think and out-manoeuvre anyone…

For Patrick, the case leads him down Boston’s darkest, most dangerous streets – and into a world of shocking secrets that will threaten not only Amanda’s life, but also his own and that of his partner Angie Gennaro.

Reviews

'Vintage stuff... another dark but absurdly enjoyable tale that's so beautifully written and so sharp in its details and atmosphere that it's no wonder Lehane's books attract filmmakers with such ease
Irish Voice
Lehane perfectly captur[es] gloomy post-financial meltdown Boston. Fortunately, he brought Patrick and Angie along to offset the murk; their chemistry has only gotten fizzier, with a realistic dash of old-married-couple resolve
Entertainment Weekly
[Lehane has] emerged from the whodunit ghetto as a broader and more substantial talent. . . .When it comes to keeping readers exactly where he wants them, Mr Lehane offers a bravura demonstration of how it's done
New York Times
Lehane brilliantly uses the ethical dilemma - which comes first: the law or personal morality? - to explore the wintry wastes of Boston in the United States of Recession
Sunday Times
Boasts surface pace and moral depth that few can match
Scottish Sunday Herald
A good thriller that does not shy away from questions of moral responsibility, and maintains a quick-fire pace and winning line in repartee
Metro
A brilliant thriller
Uncut
Lehane is a writer bringing new confidence and an easy prowess to a new chapter in an epic story - the Kenzie-Gennaro saga
Washington Post
A suitably thrilling addition to the duo's six-book saga
Shortlist
Each character...is described with economy and wit... and yet the most impressive aspect of the novel is the way that Lehane shows the psychological effects of having to deal with damaged people day after day
Evening Standard
Moonlight Mile is an excellent thriller because it takes its competent hero and heroine and puts them out of their depths
Independent
