My first Dennis Lehane book and it wasn’t bad. Kinsey and Gennaro are friends who run an private investigation business. They’re hired to find the wareabouts of a woman who took some documents and disappeared.

It took me awhile to get into the story only because all I could picture was Casey Affleck at Kinsey and it just didn’t seem to fit unless you’re actually watching Gone Baby Gone, which is based on another book by Lehane. Once I was halfway through I could slowly start putting his image out of my mind and focus on the story at hand.

It’s an easy read and intriguing. I will be picking up the next in the series in the near future and continuing on their journey.
