Sacred (Mass Market Paperbound)
The master of the new noir, Dennis Lehane brilliantly interweaves beauty and violence, integrity and evil in this thrilling, powerfully resonant novel.
A beautiful, grief-stricken woman has vanished without a trace. So has the detective hired to find her. And a lot of money. Enter saavy, tough-nosed private investigators Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro. Rooted in the no-nonsense streets of Boston's blue-collar Dorchester, they've seen it all--and survived. But this case leads them into unexpected territory where nothing is sacred--a land of lies and corruption where trusting anyone could get themkilled . . . where taking any step could be their last.
