Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed New York Times best-selling author Dennis Lehane delivers an explosive tale of integrity and vengeance - heralding the long-awaited return of private investigators Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro.

Amanda McCready was four years old when she vanished from a Boston neighborhood 12 years ago. Kenzie and Gennaro risked everything to find the young girl - only to orchestrate her return to a neglectful mother and a broken home.

Now Amanda is 16 - and gone again. Haunted by their consciences, Kenzie and Gennaro revisit the case that troubled them the most. Their search leads them into a world of identity thieves, methamphetamine dealers, a mentally unstable crime boss and his equally demented wife, a priceless, thousand-year-old cross, and a happily homicidal Russian gangster. It's a world in which motives and allegiances constantly shift and mistakes are fatal.

In their desperate fight to confront the past and find Amanda McCready, Kenzie and Gennaro will be forced to question if it's possible to do the wrong thing and still be right or to do the right thing and still be wrong. As they face an evil that goes beyond broken families and broken dreams, they discover that the sins of yesterday don't always stay buried, and the crimes of today could end their lives.

    "Decent storyline; distracting narrator"

    Lehane is one of the best in the genre; this is NOT the best of his works. The plot was a bit contrived and all of the characters except for Patrick and Angela were not fleshed out sufficiently.
    The narrator was trying--I think---to produce a Boston accent, but it wasn't consistent and often he sounded British rather than 'Southie'. As a Boston native, I found this distracting.

    "I did not want the story to end!"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot had plenty of twists, turns and surprises.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Davis – was your favorite?

    You feel like you know Patrick M. as well as a relative. I love the character.

    "Great Summer "Read""

    I thought this was a great book for entertainment. The story was intriguing. The detective's insights amused me. I am not sure if this book is part of a series (which I've obviously missed), but the characters were not "fleshed out" super well...as if I would "know" them more had I read another installment. Other than that, it was quite enjoyable.

    "Terrible Boston accent"

    I just started listening and hope I can get past the narrator's TERRIBLE fake Boston accent. It is totally inconsistent and sounds nothing like a Boston accent (I'm a native). Why make the narrator read in this accent if it's not even close? I'm a big Lehane fan so I hope I can stop cringing at every 'Cah in Hawvahd Yawd'...So annoying.

    "Lehane phone home"

    Apparently, Dennis Lehane's publisher or the publishing contract put tremendous pressure and a deadline on him to write a final Kenzie and Gennaro (or a sequel to "Gone, Baby, Gone" and whatever happened to Amanda McCready). I cannot help but believe, based on the fine quality of the prior Kenzie/Gennaro novels that Mr. Lehane’s heart just wasn't in it and he had to just phone one in. The tale feels like it was spun by a story-structure program, with a flimsy plot, new characters with no development, no true sense of place, Boston or Berkshires, present in the prior books, and relatively little humor.

    SPOILER: You could tell from the thin threads of plot starting, going and ending nowhere like the relationship between Sophie and her idiot dad (themselves stick characters), the confusing and baseless relationship between Amanda and her counselor Dre', the expedient railroading of Dre’ and an entire plot line, followed almost immediately by an implausible climax in a trailer park on the Charles River.

    Even the narrator, Jonathan Davis, tried a little too hard on this one in parts and was otherwise inconsistent in adopting the Boston "r"'s.

    I still look forward to other Lehane novels.

    Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.

    "Clever Revisit"

    Odd small inconsistencies among the characters here and past Kenzie and Gennaros. But I don't agree with those who found this so disappointing. I like it that the characters have grown in a decade... No evolved. Like it that they tied together the ends from the past. Definitely felt closure and an end to an extended multi novel epic.

    Only one BUT.... don't start with Moonlight MIle. Begin this series from the beginning. It is so cleverly and richly constructed that you'll cheat yourself of a great deal of pleasure if you don't drive this path from its start.

    I have a 3 hour commute to work every day so I listen to audiobooks to help with my drive. It's added some happiness to my day (if it's a good book)!

    "Decent Lehane Story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I was somewhat disappointed, but it was not a terrible book. I'm not sure I wanted them to have a kid and be "grown ups"


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dennis Lehane? Why or why not?

    Yes, he is one of my favorite writers.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Davis – was your favorite?

    I liked him as all characters except the little girl, he didn't pull that off very well.


    Do you think Moonlight Mile needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.

    "Now worth the listen"

    I recently heard the author, Dennis Lehane, speak at a literary society and wanted to listen to the book badly. He is a wonderful speaker. The book jumps around to too many different scenerios and never lands on its feet. The beginning was OK but the middle and ending were uneventful. Recommend his other books but not this one.

    "what a disappointment"

    Lehane usually delivers, but not this time. Pedestrian and unyieldy, the story line will put you to sleep, even with the bad guys sprinkled throughout. I want my money back!

    "Hard to listen to"

    If you can't do a passable Boston accent, please don't do it. Mr. Lehane, I would expect you to know better. I am having a hard time taking this book seriously with the this narrator.
