And second, the unabashed, open and joyful love between Holly and her Warren.
I know that this is part of the series but Lehaje only have this book so I read it anyway. Whether manipulating third parties into doing his dirty work, destroying the innocent for the fun of it, or leading poor Kenzie on a literal game of cat and mouse.
rainn I usually hate this kind of “hurt-the-hero’s-friends” crime story immensely. It is easy to like Patrick Kenzie, the detective of this story, along with Angie Gennaro, his beloved partner- sometimes manager!
Another wild ride for the cast, including a night-vision-goggle-equipped assault on an abandoned military medical facility in a cranberry swamp. The first half of this book, discovering the psychological abuse of Karen, and KNOWING how many men do this kind of thing to women every day is so hard, and worse is knowing that there is so little we can do to stop that Private Investigator Patrick Kenzie wants to know why a former client, a perky woman in love with life, could, within six months, jump naked from a Boston landmark—the final fall in a spiral of self-destruction.
This minor point probably would not have bugged me if I wasn’t already pissed off about the bad guy origin. Keep your organ music, your choir, keep your incense and processionals. The villain of the piece was very chilling and his competence made him that much more frightening. And Prayers for Rain did not disappoint. Humor is always a plus. When I think that many readers only read book 4 because of the movie, it makes me sad, because Patrick isn’t more than the shell of himself llehane.

Plus, Bubba has lenane prominent role here too and the section at the end with him is probably a series standout for me. Patrick and Angie have gone up against a lot of very bad people in their time as detectives. After making Wesley seem like such a bad ass, the end was a little too easy. When rqin comes to Noir, you can’t fro any better than Dennis Lehane. Rainn all 12 comments. I am not a fan of the hard-boiled American “Private Eye”, who relies more on his physical prowess than mental powers to catch criminals.
I’ve been in no mood for tedious and detailed books seeing as I am tired beyond reason all the time now, and when I picked this up and felt like I was getting nowhere knowing these books like I do and loving them all I should have known to call it quits and save it for a vacation or a holiday.
Have been reading all the books in series. I give 4 star I know that this is part of the series but I only have this book so I read it anyway.
Prayers for Rain – Dennis Lehane
Another winner by Lehane, the premise was good, the suspense was nerve-racking, but the only thing preventing me from giving this book 5 stars is the abrupt ending, other than that it was a great book! Let the real game begin, motherfucker.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Also to handle subject material such as he does and brings the reader back for more and rant and rave at people who have not experienced his work is testament to how highly regarded this guy is.

Lehane’s sense of place is acute, and his ear is finely attuned to the voices of Boston’s many neighborhoods, as Patrick and Angie trace Karen’s downward spiral, from the exclusive, cobbled streets of Beacon Hill to the wharves and bars of the North End.

Dennis Lehane is usually a solid 4 prayefs for me. A dressed-for-success career woman, Nichols had hired him several months earlier to scare off a stalker she had first encountered at denins fitness club. I took a Lehane break after Gone, Baby, Gone.
The MCs were great. This book was fantastic for fot pages. Also, to make Wesley’s and Scott’s plans work, Lehane had to create a lot of co-conspirators, which makes the story rather far-fetched. But I never learn my lesson it seems Hope for redemption here. In this world, yeah? He creates antagonists that you don’t want to so much see beaten, as destroyed utterly.
Dennis Lehane born Aug 4th, is an American pprayers. Another in a continuing series of first-rate thrillers from Lehane.
Karen is the type of person who seems too nice and innocent to exist in the world. The story wasn’t as tight as his other work, but still a good read to pass my commute time.
The plotting is good, after a bit of a slow start, and moves along well, dragging us happily with it as usual. Nov 08, Perry rated it liked it.
