When a former client jumps naked from a Boston landmark, Private Investigator Patrick Kenzie wants to know why. Once a perky young woman in love with life, her suicide is the final fall in a spiral of self-destruction.

What Kenzie discovers is a sadistic stalker who targeted the woman and methodically drove her to her death - a monster that the law can't touch. But Kenzie can. He and his former partner, Angela Gennaro, will fight a mind-twisting battle against the psychopath, even as he turns tricks on them...

Prayers for Rain is another superior thriller from Dennis Lehane, the bestselling and acclaimed author of Mystic River, Shutter Island, and Gone, Baby, Gone.

(The fifth book in the Kenzie and Gennaro series)

A readable book. If a person doesn't have anything better to read it's a way to waste a few hours. Not Lehane's worst pot-boiler, but not his best, either.

This book was amazing! What a plot! There were so many twists and turns, it kept me guessing until the end. I have read seven of Lehane's books, including all six in the Kenzie-Gennaro series. (Although the books are self-contained, I think that they are more enjoyable if you read them in the order of publication.) Dennis Lehane is an excellent writer, and I intend to read all of his novels.

Prayers for Rain is like the Little Girl with a Curl. When it's good it's good and when it's bad, it's very bad. Pat Kenzie is on a mission to discover the reasons for a woman's suicide. Along the way there are moments of terrific action and tension. But the good parts are glued together by sequences of weak, silly humor and the antics of a sociopathic sidekick named Bubba. These parts occasionally bang against each other and undermine the heroic nature of Kenzie's quest.

This reminded me of Grisham at his worst. Although the beginnng was somewhat gritty, it quikcly degenerated into a Keystone cop comedy due primarily to a secondary character who just wants to blow things up. All the time. And it quits being funny real quick. I lost interest totally and gave up two thirds into it.

Dennis Lehane is an entrancing storyteller. What a master of creating characters that are so
