New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehanes The Drop is a crime story, a love story, and ultimately a journey of faith, set in Bostons underworld. [A] gritty gem...a stark and moving short novel. Publishers Weekly Two days after Christmas, Bob Saginowski, a lonely bartender looking for a reason to live, rescues an abused and abandoned pit bull puppy from a trash can and meets a damaged woman named Nadia Dunn looking for something to believe in. As their relationship grows, they cross paths with the Chechen mafia, who have taken over his cousin Marvs bar and use it as a money drop; Marv himself, who has grown dangerously desperate with age and thwarted hopes; two hapless stick-up artists who make the mistake of robbing the bar; a very curious cop; and the original owner of the puppy, a psycho named Eric Deeds, who wants his dog back. . .

Recensioner i media

Lehaneis a master of the sort of deadpan-noir pioneered by the late Elmore Leonard Its 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 novelizationhas 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. Theres 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 Bobs 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
