Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane delivers an explosive tale of integrity and vengeance—heralding the long-awaited return of private investigators Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro

Amanda McCready was four years old when she vanished from a Boston neighborhood twelve years ago. Kenzie and Gennaro risked everything to find the young girl—only to orchestrate her return to a neglectful mother and a broken home.

Now Amanda is sixteen—and gone again. Haunted by their consciences, Kenzie and Gennaro revisit the case that troubled them the most. Their search leads them into a world of identity thieves, methamphetamine dealers, a mentally unstable crime boss and his equally demented wife, a priceless, thousand-year-old cross, and a happily homicidal Russian gangster. It's a world in which motives and allegiances constantly shift and mistakes are fatal.

In their desperate fight to confront the past and find Amanda McCready, Kenzie and Gennaro will be forced to question if it's possible to do the wrong thing and still be right or to do the right thing and still be wrong. As they face an evil that goes beyond broken families and broken dreams, they discover that the sins of yesterday don't always stay buried and the crimes of today could end their lives.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Dennis Lehane is the heir apparent. You read his stuff and think he’s got the great ones—Chandler, MacDonald, Parker—watching over him as he writes every page. But his voice is an original.” 

    Michael Connelly

  • “[Moonlight Mile] zooms along the express track without sacrificing the emotional punch of Lehane’s previous works.” 

    Los Angeles Times Book Review

  • “Jonathan Davis captures Angie’s bitterness; the youthful, yet coldly efficient delivery of the brilliant teenage Amanda; the growl of the friendly sociopath Bubba and assorted others, including a genial, self-amused Russian mobster. But his finest achievement is his voice for Patrick, the narrator. It’s world-weary, very definitely Bostonian, and conveys a strength of character that suggests the task he’s set for himself may not be as impossible as it appears. Fans of the series should be more than pleased.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A fast-paced, heartbreaking story…Moonlight Mile flies at you fast and sinks its hooks into you for keeps.” 

    Chicago Tribune

  • Moonlight Mile is yet more proof that the author is as much social historian as mystery writer, and that his true literary forefathers include John Steinbeck as well as Raymond Chandler.” 

    Baltimore Sun

  • Selected for the November 2010 Indie Next List
  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A Los Angeles Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • A 2011 Barry Award Nominee for Best Novel
  • A 2011 Dilys Award Nominee
  • A Kirkus Reviews “New and Notable Title”, November 2010

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 5/23/2011

    " Great, great book...makes me wish Lehane was one of those guys that cranked a new one out every 6 months or so. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 5/21/2011

    " So glad to see Patrick and Angie back, I was a fan when this series was all Lehane was writing. I love his class-conscious city-loving view of folks who have lived in one place for a long time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 5/21/2011

    " Patrick Kenzie just keeps making dump mistakes for a seasoned investigator, but I guess that propels the story along. Here he revisits the Amanda McCready kidnapping case, and boy has she grown up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derek | 5/16/2011

    " I liked the book, don't get me wrong. I love this series and the characters but it was not the strongest of the books in the series, in fact it was probably the weakest. The characters were recycled. It is a shame the series has to go out on this note. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn | 5/16/2011

    " good sequel to Gone Baby Gone "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 5/15/2011

    " Good--but faded a bit at the end. I expected more for the follow up to "Gone Baby Gone"... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/14/2011

    " Great book...very raw and lots of violence so be prepared. did not realize it was a sequel to Gone Baby Gone until after I was done! Oops. Planning on reading that next but now i spoiled the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 5/12/2011

    " Good followup to Gone Baby Gone "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paula | 5/9/2011

    " Maybe a 3.5. Dennis Lehane is so reliable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 5/7/2011

    " This was actually the first Dennis Lehane book I've read. I enjoyed the crisp writing, great ear for dialogue, the characters are likable and I couldn't put it down. Great story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bernard | 5/5/2011

    " Lehane still has the hard-boiled magic working for him. In this novel, though, the consequences of living la vida loca really come home to roost for Patrick, who is now much older than when last we saw him, and quite a bit more mature. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew | 5/4/2011

    " not as good as some other Lehane ones i've read.
    Good twist at the end though. "

    " Sequel to Gone Baby Gone "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin | 5/3/2011

    " amanda mccready from lehane's "gone baby gone" is grown up and missing again. it would have been hard to top that book and this one doesn't. not a bad read, just not great. "
