SOMEBODY COMES ALONG WHEN YOUR NOT LOOKING, NOR EXPECTING
This is a middle of the road listen. It is not awful and it is not great. This is more about the characters then the story. I am a dog lover and the puppy is what kept me listening, even thought the dog is a very minor part of the listen. The characters are a little gritty and offbeat. There are some Chechin bad guys, but nobody is really a good guy, as in most Lehane books. Also like most Lehane books, it is pure Boston (underbelly).
I AM NOT THE ONE WHO WASTED MY WHOLE LIFE WAITING FOR IT TO START.

I just listened again, having purchased this 2 years ago, and if possible like it even more than the 5 stars I gave then. Can't give more stars, so will have to write a review.
This book depicts some of the most savage, venal, depraved, avaricious - oh well, all the deadly sins and then some - but somehow Lehane's writing and Frangione's narration turn that mess into a totally enjoyable book. I won't say which part I enjoyed most, but, hint, it had something to do with the dog. And it's sort of an uplifting Christmas story, though the ending was a downer and a cliffhanger (I hate both of those), but at least answered a couple of lingering questions. Looking forward to listening again in a couple more years!
