Patrick Kenzie is approached llehane a woman named Karen Nichols who asks him to scare off a stalker. I needed to read lighter books with stories that didn’t make me feel like breaking down or getting angry because of stupid laws that make children’s lives miserable.

Prayers for Rain

I guess Lehane succeeded in turning me into a killer after all. At some point the novel begins to deteriorate to the extent that I barely have the patience to flr reading. It’s a fast read, as always with Lehan’s books.

Hell, you can’t get enough of the team finally working together again. Four months before she died. When I felt a distance at the beginning, I should have stopped. Refresh and try again. 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.

A promising book turns into the dreaded page-turner: They were well drawn and very personable. But he gets Angie to come help him out.

His sense of fatigue is palpable, and we all know that after Grace and Mae left, and his life finally became meaningful with Angela, that his current romances will somehow be only shadows of dennsi he and Angela are together.

I know that this is part of the series but I only have this book so I read it anyway. An unpleasant visit from Kenzie and his explosive friend Bubba Rogowski had apparently been enough to deter the stalker, Cody Falk, an upscale predator with a long history of restraining orders.

As the series continues, however, there is an increasing willingness to perform acts that are clearly outside the law. Even after saying all that, I still love raim book and my Patrick. I loved it, and only later realized it is considered his best work. The scene reminded me of some of the virtuoso dialogues in Denise Mina’s novels.

Other than that, I’d say this one was almost as good as Gone Baby Gone. So until then, I’m picking through his work, and I’ve very much en I don’t have many regrets, but one that I do have is having watched Mystic River when I did.

But not for one minute did I not enjoy it. If you’ve read this review of the Kenzie and Gennaro books, than you’ve read them all. What could have been better: Other books in the series. So, yeah, I probably ruined some of this book, but I also just couldn’t wait.


Prayers for Rain (Kenzie & Gennaro, #5) by Dennis Lehane

Say this for Lehane he writes a good villain. He must have some terrible demons and ghosts in his past. Patrick is on the case of a girl who committed suicide.

But I decided to read the next one when I saw that I need to return the Lehane books I had at payers to the library.

Call it a weak moment, but I went ahead and watched it. This page was last edited on 25 Februaryat When a former client commits suicide, Patrick Kenzie goes digging into her background to find out why.

This book was fantastic for about pages. What’s more, I had my defenses up this time around. Nov 14, Donna rated it it was amazing Shelves: She pulled her hand back, stuffed it in her pocket as if it were praers. This book took me a week to read, which doesn’t bode well for what I thought of it-But then I take into account how busy, tired, meh I’ve been and it about evens out with my mood.

Rainn by his former client’s death, Kenzie makes a quick investigation and finds that at the time of her call, Nichols had been experiencing a suspicious run of bad luck.

The novelist is almost invisible.
