    Boston, 1926. The ‘20s are roaring. Liquor is flowing, bullets are flying, and one man sets out to make his mark on the world. Prohibition has given rise to an endless network of underground distilleries, speakeasies, gangsters, and corrupt cops. Joe Coughlin, the youngest son of a prominent Boston police captain, has long since turned his back on his strict and proper upbringing. Now having graduated from a childhood of petty theft to a career in the pay of the city's most fearsome mobsters, Joe enjoys the spoils, thrills, and notoriety of being an outlaw.

    Richard Delman says: "Lehane shows off his skills."
    "This one snuck up on me."

    What made the experience of listening to Live by Night the most enjoyable?

    While i've liked almost all of Lehane's work, the emphasis is on "like". This book i loved... and it wasn't 'til the mid-point, that i realized just how fine a piece of writing it is. If you enjoy good bad guys and flawed heros, this is your read...


    What did you like best about this story?

    the careful development of charactors...the historical detail so fine you can smell and taste the neighborhood...and the continuity that wouldn't let me stop turning the page (so to speak)...
