Mystic River by Dennis Lehane
This psychological thriller verges on high literature and explores vengeance with a complexity that is not typically associated with mystery writing. Even more compelling and psychologically astute than the book’s Oscar-winning film adaptation, Lehane weaves a gripping story about lost innocence, loyalty and justice.
Lush Life, A Novel by Richard Price
Fans of grimy, urban crime thrillers will love this sprawling novel about the violent underground of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Penned to perfection by Price, a revered genius with dialogue, Lush Life is epic narrative storytelling at its finest.
