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.

    "Not a believable ending"
    What was most disappointing about Dennis Lehane’s story?

    Patrick and Angie were not believable as parents, but I suppose having children does change you.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He has more of a Boston accent here than any of his other Kenzie-Genaro books. Other than that, I found it nearly the same as the other performances which were remarkable.


    Any additional comments?

    It feels like everything was a little too convenient. Really predictable--not at all what I'm used to with Lehane's work.

    "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.

    Story
    "As good as his early novels"

    This book is about the former partners who are now a couple (remember Angie?), married now with a daughter. There is a crime that must be solved. Very enjoyable. The narrator is terrific - although I am not an expert on Boston accents. He does all the voices including his four-year old daughter very well. I may have rated the narrator too high, but I have encountered some very mediocre - if not bad - narrators so this was a pleasure to listen to.

    "Not the Patrick and Angie I know"
    What did you like best about Moonlight Mile? What did you like least?

    The Russian Mobsters. It was always funny to hear them stumble over the English language.


    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is a great narrator, was good with all the accents except Patrick's. In all the other Dennis Lehane audio books Johnathon didn't do a Boston accent for Patrick, for this one he did and it wasn't good. All the other characters were voiced great.


    Any additional comments?

    Not at all how I was hoping to say goodbye to Patrick and Angie. I have really enjoyed most of the other books in this series but this one felt like Mr. Lehane was having to write this with a gun to his head. I didn't feel he really cared much about this story and was simply looking to tidy up the series. Not a great way to end with such good characters. I want a Bubba series ASAP!

    "Continues Lehane's storyline but a weaker attempt"
    If you???ve listened to books by Dennis Lehane before, how does this one compare?

    This is my least favorite Lehane so far, Still a decent listen but seemed to lack the suspense and depth of the others. Without providing a spoiler it was a weaker ending then I have grown to expect from Lehane.

    "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.

    "Credibility is lacking"

    A rather ponderous story which lacks both a credible plot and real characterization. Takes a long time to get going but is well grounded in its Boston area location at least.

    "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!

    "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.

    loved that this revisits the Gone Baby Gone story, but the narrators voice sounded different
