    1. I m really trying to read this series slowly when all I want to do it gobble them all up in one sitting Kenzie and Angie are healing from the wounds from the previous two books These two live a hard life The book begins when they both are drugged and kidnapped When they awaken they learn that an old dying rich man has kidnapped them wanting them to take his case.He has money than he can spend and Kenzie and Angie will take the case because Money And because he is grieving for his recently murde [...]

    2. Dennis Lehane image from LA Times The significance of the title is PI Patrick Kenzie s love for his partner, Angie This stands in stark contrast to the unholy relationship between some other characters in this tale Billionaire Trevor Stone wants the PI pair to track down his daughter Time is of the essence as the old guy is on death s door Adding flavor is that Patrick s mentor had been hired to find her already and has now gone missing himself Lehane gives us a nifty look at a Grief Counseling [...]

    3. Posted at Shelf InflictedIn the third book of the Kenzie Gennaro series, Patrick and Angie are hired to find a dying billionaire s missing daughter They learn that the detective he previously hired and who trained Patrick, has also disappeared under mysterious circumstances There are lots of twists and turns in this case, a grieving daughter, people who are not what they appear to be, a cult that exploits the grief and vulnerabilities of its recruits, a family who behaves badly, and a lot of mis [...]

    4. Inferior to the first two Kenzie Genaro mysteries, for two reasons 1 Kenzie is falling in love with Genaro, and he tells us how hot she is so many times that it gets in the way of the story, and 2 half of the book is set in Florida not Boston I don t mind the fact that our two heroes are out of their element, but Lehane is out of his element too and it shows.

    5. Edit 09 19 As I can t help but reread some parts a billion times GEE view spoiler you ll know what I mean hide spoiler , I can safely change this rating into a 5 Loyalty and love will always win me, I guess Everyone is suspect Everyone is suspect.It was starting to become my mantra I ll tell you this Read this series, because it s basically awesomeness in a bottle You ve got Patrick, sarcastic and clever detective who stole my heart I mean just marry me already , Angie, his partner who shows an [...]

    6. When Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro are strong armed and then enticed by a billionaire to find his missing daughter, dead or alive, they have no idea of the web of lies they are about to be entangled in, a web that has already made Patrick s mentor vanish without a traceOne of the reasons I ve gravitated toward detective fiction in my old age is that I m far likely to be taken by surprise This book surprised me than looking into my rear view mirror on a midnight drive and finding a homicida [...]

    7. Maybe honor was in its twilight Maybe it had always been heading that way Or worse, maybe it had always been an illusion.Everyone is suspect Everyone is suspect It was starting to become my mantra.It goes without saying that I m a picky little shit I have rules upon rules, and I turn down rec after rec from friends because I am just that critical It s not because I don t trust my friends s than that Imagine knowing precisely what you want And when you find it, your eyes light up and your heart [...]

    8. Marvellous The best so farin the Kenzie Gennaro series As usual with my reviews, please first read the publisher s blurb summary of the book so that I don t have to repeat the basic plot.Great complex plot, interesting lying characters, a marvellous femme fatale, twists and turns that Chandler would love, and plenty of action scenes, although fantasy Hollywood Physics abound and people fly across rooms when hit by bullets Godzilla Facepalm The pacing throughout is great and only falls down a bit [...]

    9. For most people getting hired by a billionaire and paid a huge sum of money to do a job that includes going to sunny Florida via private jet would be a career highlight Of course, Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro aren t most people so readers of this series know things will go badly Hell, I m surprised their plane didn t crash.Patrick and Angie are still recovering from the events in the previous book Their detective agency is closed for business, and they re spending most of their time going to [...]

    10. A Bone to Pick With Mr LehaneWell Dennis, I hope you re happy with yourself because you ve pretty much shot my street cred with your depiction of Marblehead in this one all those years of referring to it as M hood, my clever use of the zip code in dubbing the town police force the 0194 five oh, all shattered as soon as Patrick Kenzie wakes up in the mansion of a mysterious billionaire the dimensions of which I m pretty sure wouldn t actually fit anywhere on the Marblehead Neck, so there On the o [...]

    11. Damn good book in a damn good series.This one is pretty twisty Kenzie and Ange are still recovering from the events of the last book Darkness, Take My Hand , when a wealthy man hires them to find his daughter.Sacred started by going off in one direction, took a brief turn toward Carl Hiassen and then settled into the feeling that our heroes had wandered into the middle of Chandler s The Big Sleep.I m just sorry I finished it so quickly.

    12. Recommended by Corey.Another good book by Dennis Lehane.Boston s Patrick Kenzie Angie Gennaro private investigators are hired in a unusual way by rich but sick Billionaire Trevor Stone with not much time to live He has them kidnapped to see if they want to work a case for him He pays them 50,000 for the inconvenience of kidnapping taking them to his home They are able to leave by just reviewing the possible investigation he requests.Trevor s offer starts by paying them over two million to find o [...]

    13. Patrick and Angie discover that they are being followed, but they underestimate their stalkers and they get kidnapped Luckily for them, it s just a dying billionaire that wants to hire them to find his daughter before he dies And they feel for him, especially Angie and agree to take the case What could go wrong, it s just a missing person case Of course, nothing is as it seems and this missing case turned out to be a much bigger case than they had bargained for and as usual, they just can t seem [...]

    14. There s something ugly about the flawlessFollowing the events of Darkness, Take My Hand, Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro have shuttered their agency and have begun to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives A year has passed when they re approached and by approached, I mean drugged and tossed in the back of a van by an ailing man desperate to find his missing daughter The pair are hesitant to accept but when enticed by a hefty sum of cash, it becomes an offer they cannot refuse.Sacred take [...]

    15. Dying billionaire Trevor Stone who is clearly not telling all , hires in an outlandish way the Boston pairing of private detectives Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro, partners sometimes sleeping partners , to find his missing daughter Desiree, a depressed young women who may or may not be in the Florida area mixed up in god knows what Following Patrick s vanished mentor Jay Becker as a beginning leads to a maelstrom of beatings, betrayals, unmaskings, resurrections, wise cracking smart talk, and [...]

    16. Sacred is the 3rd entry in the Kenzie Gennaro series, and the tone was lighter and mild than in Darkness Take My Hand, didn t feel as dark or gritty, still wildly entertaining however This time Kenzie and Gennaro, who are still recovering from their horrifying ordeal at the conclusion of Darkness Take My Hand are approached by millionaire businessman Trevor Stone who is dying of cancer, and he hires them to track down his missing daughter, who has disappeared without a trace, not only that, but [...]

    17. A great series to star from the beginning and then just keep on going The 3rd in the series and I enjoyed it very much

    18. I read a lot in the mystery genre, and I have learned to appreciate most of the formulas that go into building a decent thriller The problem, though, with formula is that it makes for a generally predictable storyline In a run of the mill thriller, you can often spot who the femme fatale character is, or who among the list of suspects is the next to be unexpectedly murdered, or in some cases even who the killer is from the beginning Dennis Lehane doesn t write run of the mill thrillers Lehane wr [...]

    19. Angie and Patrick have or less given up detective work after a shootout that left them physically and mentally scarred when they are kidnapped by Trevor Stone, an immensely wealthy man, dying of cancer, who wants them to find his daughter Desiree who has disappeared along with Patrick s mentor, Jay Becker, another Boston detective.As with most good stories, the ostensible is rarely part of the outcome This one truly has a plot built on shifting sands Take nothing for granted.I liked the sarcasm [...]

    20. This book just sucked me right in The pacing is almost flawless, as far as this kind of thing is concerned It s the third in a series, and there are some intriguing references to the events of previous novels, which, unfortunately, I haven t yet read So, books to add to my to read pile.There is quite a bit of wit and wordplay, which Lehane seems to handle remarkably well I don t recall Shutter Island being quite the same, but anyway Despite the fact that this isn t groundbreaking stuff in the m [...]

    21. Pue la MerdeThis is the worst Kenzie Gennaro novel, nothing like the intriguing, provocative and suspenseful 4, Gone, Baby, Gone Nor does it have the grittiness, suspense or sexual tension in 2, Darkness, Take My Hand Instead, Sacred feeds you successive lines of disconnected bulls t, and asks you to buy the whole ranch in one of the most ridiculous plots in modern day detective suspense novels.In sum, a quickly forgettable, unrealistic non suspense novel.

    22. The part in bold applies to the entire Patrick Kensie Angie Gennero series.After watching the moving Gone Baby Gone I wanted to read this series of books I wasn t disappointed The stories may not be classics, but they grab you and you want to read to the end Most importantly for me, I like the main characters Even when they do things that make me mad, it feels like when I m mad at a friend and I know I ll get over it I can relate to them and I feel like they re my friends even when I want to sla [...]

    23. I read this book in 3 days While reading it was like duuude this book is goooooood, so much action, so many twists, give me , give me But now thinking about it in retrospect, having completed the whole thing it has or less left me pretty dissatisfied I read it a couple of weeks ago and it already feels a little forgettable The book definitely mellows out from the first two It explores the relationship between Patrick and Angie, which is a good thing, and also changes the scenery and takes a t [...]

    24. Dennis Lehane doesn t spell out the identity of the incestuous hybrid if counseling service cult Yet, as clearly as Lord British Brotherhood in the Ultima series of computer role playing games was inspired by the Dianetics self help Church of Scientology relationship, so is the relationship described in Sacred a relationship that is anything BUT sacred.Lots of relationships are anything but sacred in this mystery The patron is a Bostonian version of the southern millionaire transplanted to Los A [...]

    25. In Sacred , Kenzie and Gennaro are hired by a not wholly trustworthy billionaire, who is dying of cancer, to find his missing daughter, Desiree It s the third book of the Kenzie and Gennaro series and one in which the trail leads them out of their beloved Boston to Miami, for most of the course of the novel, before returning home for the closing chapters Sacred is the least satisfying of series of the four K and G novels I have read so far It is probably the change in backdrop, Miami, that Lehan [...]

    26. Hmmmmmeone liked one of my reviews and I checked out this person s reading list as well as their reviews and heard mention somewhere in there a sentence or two about heroes, one likeable, the otherwell, along the lines of a sociopath Dennis Lehane, among other authors was mentioned in this respect.As always, my curiosity was piqued, and although I checked out the other named authors I did finally settle on Dennis Lehane It was a good decision Perhaps one of the best reading decisions ever Lehan [...]

    27. 3rd in the Patrick Kenzie Angela Gennaro series return return By unorthodox means, Gennaro and Kenzie are hired by an incredibly wealthy and powerful but dying businessman to find his daughter who, stricken with grief by several deaths within a short period of time, has disappeared Disappeared as well is the private detective Kenzie s mentor who was originally hired to find her return return So begins the 3rd installment in the series The trail leads the pair to Florida and back to Boston again, [...]

    28. Everything is just dandy with the old gang Patrick and Angie I m happy for, and I enjoy their partnership, on and off this case, but I was so so about this case I liked some of the twists and there wasn t anything specific that I could point to that dragged the pace down because I kept reading this at the same speed as the other two but it didn t click for me It just didn t The first two books were much too mind blowing for this to not be a letdown in some way, I suppose I m not sure whether I d [...]

    29. I probably read this too soon after the far superior Darkness, Take My Hand, but in my defense, I was craving Lehane And I still am I ll probably get through the rest of this series as a fairly quick for me pace The plot was messy and unengaging and the twists seemed way too obvious, the characters were SO annoying it s like being subjected to being an involuntary third wheel to co workers who are flirting and dating and being really obnoxious instead of just DOING THEIR WORK omg I love romance [...]
