    "I started reading this book a couple of weeks ago and I was really impressed with the writing and imagery. The plot was really unpredictable and I appreciate that in a book. There are too many books out there that have the most predictable plot and turn out to not hold my attention. I am so glad I started reading this book because it was very insightful."

    "This is the kind of book that I might like. However, I do not like this one that much. There is a lot of details on the neighborhood. It is kind of boring to me. Some place the book is a bit formulaic."

    "What a great value! I bought this book because I wanted to try out new authors. It is a crime novel that takes you on an adventure through the eastern coast of the United States. My only complaint is that there was some slow parts. Overall, I am very happy with the plot."

    "Some of the stories in this collection are SO GOOD. My favorite is "Until Gwen." A few of the stories are not that great but most are at least entertaining and some of them you will NOT stop reading until you finish that story. This is my favorite of Dennis Lehane's books. "

    "Ok, it is escapist reading and good at that, but really, are there that many psychopaths in any city in the world? If that sort of joyful mass murder preceeded by hours of laughing mutalation is your thing, this book is for you. Eerie. May be one of the author's best books."
