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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[Lehane] turns the hard-boiled detective novel into an elegiac treatise on the corruption of the soul. With the wonderfully written Sacred, he shows that he gets better each time out.”

    Michael Connelly, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “Lively and entertaining…Driven by a fast-paced, twisting plot.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “As smart and fast a contemporary crime novel as you could wish for.”


  • “With its tight dialogue, explosive action scenes and heart wrenching emotional crises, Sacred is difficult to put down.”

    Times (London)

  • “Sharp verbal patter, a noirish kind of good/bad girl and a dying and quite possibly sinister old man all enliven this third stellar effort…The punishing pace and internal plot logic perform in perfect tandem…Lehane proves he belongs in the big leagues with another gritty and surpassingly entertaining mystery.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Devilishly twisted, a kind of Elmore Leonard–meets–The Sting in which everyone is trying to con everyone else…Sacred is a first-class novel that will delight anyone who loves an intricate mystery.”


  • “Lehane’s barn-burning third novel packs enough beatings, betrayals, unmaskings, resurrections, smart talk, and untrustworthy people for the most jaded palate. If you haven’t discovered this gifted newcomer yet, you’d better hurry before his ship of fools and knaves casts off without you.”

    Kirkus Reviews
