His hand gripped my elbow from behind and turned me toward him. Problem with my method, Mr. Kenzie? Fucking method?.

In 2010, Dennis Lehane wrote a followup to his novel Gone Baby Gone, Moonlight Mile, which once again concerns detectives Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro as well as several of the main characters involved in the case covered in Gone Baby Gone. Lehane put an oblique reference to this movie into the text of Moonlight Mile: he describes one character as being like Robert Ford, the reallife killer of outlaw Jesse James.

But he also said once you both got it into your heads that you were going to close a case, not even God himself could call you off. That Oscar, I said, he’s a peach. So now you’re on the same case we are.

Boston private investigators Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro are hired to find four-year-old Amanda Cready.

Confronted with a police force seething with lethal secrets, Kenzie and Gennaro soon discover that those who go looking for the missing may not come back alive.

“Gone, Baby, Gone” is crime thriller novel written by Dennis Lehane. It is the fourth in a series of books about fictional Boston private investigators Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro. This is an excellent work of fiction that features a dark and tense plot about important and timely subjects – namely the neglect and abuse of children, and police corruption. It provides a vivid and realistic look at how these things play out in an environment of poverty and despair.

"Gone, Baby, Gone's" setting is Dorchester, Massachusetts, a run-down, economically depressed community near Boston. Four year-old Amanda McReady has disappeared from her second-story apartment. As family, friends, and the police all desperately search for Amanda, her abusive and negligent single mother, Helene, remains coldly indifferent to her daughter’s whereabouts. Therefore, Helene’s brother, Lionel, and his wife, Beatrice, decide to hire Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro, a pair of local private detectives, to help find the missing child.

At first, it seems like a straightforward missing person’s case. Did Amanda simply wander away from home one night, and if so, where is she hiding? As Kenzie and Gennaro’s search for Amanda progresses, the two private eyes begin discovering evidence that indicates something more sinister might be at play – the child might have been abducted. . Soon the two private eyes find themselves on a collision course with a local drug lord, a family of automatic weapon-wielding child molesters, and a pair of hard-boiled Boston police detectives determined at all costs on preventing them from having anything to do with the case…

All of this makes for a fast-paced, engrossing book of 500 pages that I finished in only three days. Dennis Lehane has populated his novel with characters that are easy to like and despise at the same time in equal measure.

Those who have seen the movie "Gone Baby Gone" that’s based on this book will notice that the novel is richer and more detailed than the film. Although the movie retains the same plot structure and many of the characters are the same, it does alter many characters and plot points for the sake of simplifying the story for the screen. As good as the movie is, the book is even better. I think "Gone, Baby, Gone" is one of the best novels ever written by Dennis Lehane. Highly recommended.

I agree with many other reviewers that this is the best of the Kenzie and Gennaro series. The themes covered- child abuse and kidnapping, while dark are not excessively lurid, and you can read Lehane's portrayals without losing your lunch.

A toddler, Amanda McCready has gone missing and Kenzie and Gennaro are brought in by the family to assist the police. Twists and turns abound and the two find that this is not a simple kidnapping for ransom, but something much darker.

A tightly plotted tale with great real-to-life characters.
Dialogue and narrative-top notch.

Highly recommended. It will help to have read other books in the series, but not absolutely necessary.

Gone, Baby, Gone - Dennis Lehanne
This is the fourth book in the Boston Private Investigators Patrick Kenzie/Angela Gennaro series. These books are considered an excellent series. As well as this series, Lehanne's pieces of work also include "Mystic River" and "Shutter Island." Dennis is a fine author if one likes this genre.
Patrick and Angela are hired to find a kidnapped little girl, Amanda Cready by Helene's brother and sister-in-law at the prodding of the sister-in-law. The media swarms the case. The police are all over it shadowing Kenzie's and Gennaro's every move, often even to the point of orchestrating the PI's moves to a point. And where is the FBI? Is this not a kidnapping? What's up?
Amanda's mother Helene is a real piece of work. She doesn't really provide, she does a lot of drugs, and she drinks constantly, and she quite often leaves Amanda unattended. In short, she is a terrible mother.
Then she and another piece of work that Helene sometimes dates for lack of a better word go to Philadelphia and have the audacity to steal $200,000 of drug money. They are under the radar. Everyone believes this is why Amanda is kidnapped, that is, except the bad guys.
Amanda still does not turn up. Are Patrick, Angela and the police on the wrong track? They follow a few bad leads with expected results. Then, another child comes up missing. All involved close in on this and there are a few bad people killed in a shoot-out, along with a detective. A dead child is found, also, but still no Amanda.
Then something happens big, really big. It appears that perhaps the case may be solved after all. In fact, the case may be solved rather quickly. But, sometimes solving a case is not all it is cracked up to be.
"Gone Baby Gone" was a really good book. I am glad that I read it, and would have no problem recommending it to anyone. I was not a fan of "Shutter Island" so please don't put any emphasis on that book. This was a really good movie, too if only a little dark. It was directed by Ben Affleck, and his brother Casey Affleck played Patrick. Angela was played by Michelle Monighan (one of my personal favorite). Morgan Freeman and Ed Harris also appear in the movie. So, check it out. You won't regret it.

This is a very well-written book, but I was turned off by the author's use of extremely repulsive violence against children. This was way over the top for my taste in thrillers and murder mysteries. I think it's a great book for what it is, but I wouldn't read anything else by this author unless I could assure myself that it didn't deal with such ugliness as this one does.
