Description
The author of Mystic River and Shutter Island returns here to the Coughlin family of The Given Day. In 1926 Boston, Prohibition has given rise to an infinite underground network of distilleries, speakeasies, gangsters, and corrupt cops. Joe Coughlin, youngest son of a Boston police captain, has long since turned his back on his strict upbringing, having graduated from a childhood of petty theft to a career with the city's most fearsome mobsters. His dizzying journey up the ladder of organized crime takes him from the flash of Jazz Age Boston to the sensual shimmer of Tampa's Latin Quarter and the sizzling streets of Cuba. One fate seems most likely for men like Joe: an early death. But until that day, he and his friends are determined to live life to the hilt.

"Live by Night is Crime Noir 101, as taught by the best of its current practitioners ... a sentence-by-sentence pleasure. You are in the hands of an expert. And you'll know it."—NYTimes

"[Dennis] Lehane's novel carves its own unique place in the Prohibition landscape.... This is an utterly magnetic novel on every level, a reimagining of the great themes of popular fiction—crime, family, passion, betrayal—set against an exquisitely rendered historical backdrop."—Booklist (starred review)
