Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane

Moonlight Mile Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

     If only these detectives had done the right thing rather than the legal thing 12 years ago.  Integrity sometimes has devastating consequences. Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro, private investigators, have changed over the years.  The significance of their decision 12 years ago has new meaning as they raise their own 4 year old daughter.
     Amanda McCready is missing again in this complex mystery.  Kenzie and Gennaro searched for 4 year old Amanda, found her and returned her to her mother at the request of her aunt 12 years ago.  Yet, they remain haunted because her mother's "care" was negligent and the home from which they rescued her was idyllic.
     This story is fast-paced, complicated, and rough.  The ending provides a satisfying twist that almost rivals "Diggstown" and "The Usual Suspects" for surprise.  I cannot count the number of times I stayed in my car draining the battery to finish listening to one episode or another. 
     I recommend this story to mystery lovers.  However, you have to pay attention if you listen to the audio book or you will miss important details. And, every detail in this one is important.
