Publisher's Summary

Dying billionaire Trevor Stone hires private detectives Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaroto find his missing daughter. Grief-stricken over the death of her mother and the impending death of her father, Desiree Stone has been missing for three weeks. So has the first investigator Stone hired to find her: Jay Becker, Patrick's mentor.
Patrick and Angie are led down a trail of half-truths and corruption into a world in which a therapeutic organization may be fronting for a dangerous and seductive cult, a high-tech private investigation firm may be covering up lethal crimes, and a stolen cache of millions in illegal funds may be tied to both disappearances and a tanker full of heroin. Nothing is what it seems as the detectives travel from the windblown streets of Boston to the rum-punch sunsets of Florida's Gulf Coast. And the more Patrick and Angie discover, the more they realize that on this case any wrong step will certainly be their last . . .
Snappy dialogue, explosive action scenes, and original characters have become Dennis Lehane's trademarks. With Sacred, Lehane confirms his status as today's hottest young author of first-rate mysteries that are also smartly written literary novels.

Sacred Bull****

I've rather enjoyed other novels by Mr. Lehane, intriguing and provocative with varying degrees of the realism necessary for suspending disbelief.

This novel, which I hope is an aberration, shows none of the grittiness, suspense or tension between the sexes present in his prior novels. Rather, in "Sacred," Lehane feeds you a successive line of disconnected bulls**t, and asks you to buy the ranch, to boot. Though, if you successfully make it past the many mounds of it, you need not wash the caca from your boots; the most forgettable suspense novels in recent years is, at the least, self-cleaning.

another good Dennis Lehane story, well read

This isn't quite as good as some of the earlier Lehane's in this series. The story is a little more improbable, and the social commentary not quite as sharp as the earlier stories. You certainly still care about the main characters, and the bad people are really bad. The conclusion was ingenious, and it worked.
