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.

Great ending to the series.

Not the best of the series, but one of the most thoughtful. Pretty short, but well put together. Great way to end the series.

Good story

I have gotten hooked on this series by Lehane. Patrick and Angie, the excellent dialogue, the characters are wonderful. However, this particular book seems to have been recorded first in the series in spite of being the last written. The result is that Jonathan Davis, whom I loved in the other books, sounds a bit more like Elmer Fudd than Dorchester...the Bostonian R's and other pronunciations are just wrong. But in the later books, the accent is more subtle and Davis' narration really makes for a terrific listening experience. I hope Dennis Lehane hasn't permanently abandoned Boston as a setting for his wonderful writing.

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.

Bad ending to a great series

The fake Boston accent was hard to take with these southern ears. I give two stars to the narrator for other reasons as well. There was a spark missing in this story as well as between the two
Kenzies; it isn't even close to the earlier books in plot or intensity. I think I'll try reading it to see if that makes a difference. And I'm tired of Russian mob stories. It's just an okay 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.
