He grew up in Boston, MA and now lives in California with his family.

Reviews

"Lehane...is a master of the sort of deadpan-noir pioneered by the late Elmore Leonard... It's a style full of dark situational humor, sudden mayhem and quirky regional grammar."--Wall Street Journal
"This book is as authentically grounded in place as his earlier works and more pleasurable than any tie-in novelization...has a right to be. And "The Drop" benefits from bracing blasts of Lehane-ian humor."--Boston Globe
"Understated and perfectly paced....What makes The Drop so good is not just the pacing, which is just about right, but the mood.... There's also the very stylish writing.--Philadelphia Inquirer
"A tight, gritty little tale of working-class crime in Boston....Lehane breathes pulsing life into his story through the small details of his stoop-shouldered characters' lives, investing their every mannerism with unspoken emotion."--Booklist (starred review)
