Once upon a time James Lee Burke was the poet of crime fiction. Then he turned Dave Robicheaux into a blunt polemicist for his own politics. Still, those early Burke books were like reading melodies. Well, Dennis Lehane has that power to poetry without the propaganda. And in an entirely different way, Jonathan Davis rivals the legendary Mark Hammer as a story teller.
Look, "Prayers For Rain" ain't great literature, but it is hot mystery writing. And Kenzie and Gennaro are one of the memorable partnerships. Okay... this is a bloody book, Lehane does that, along with dimming the story lights to a darkness that's almost spooky.
But once again, after more than a year away from this ensemble, it was like coming home. I'll get another one in the series and the only advice I've got for you is to start at the beginning to avoid spoilers that might ruin your enjoyment in watching these people grow as the epic unfolds.

Dennis Lehane is a favorite of mine and I am thrilled to see Audible adding a couple of his titles. Please add more. While there is an order to the Angie-Patrick books, they're great in or out of that order.
