About the Author

Dennis Lehane is the author of thirteen novels--including the New York Times bestsellers Live by Night; Moonlight Mile; Gone, Baby, Gone; Mystic River; Shutter Island; and The Given Day--as well as Coronado, a collection of short stories and a play. He grew up in Boston, MA and now lives in California with his family.


" 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 and the weight of too many bad decisions, all of which makes Bob's transformation from quiet desperation to quiet determination a powerful kind of existential drama." -- Booklist (starred review)

"The bard of blue-collar Boston crime returns with a sleight-of-hand novel tinged with sin and redemption." -- Kirkus Reviews
