Live By Night by Dennis Lehane
This is another superstar of crime fiction and I enjoyed this novel cover to cover. An inside look at organized crime during roaring twenties. Big business under prohibition, rum runners and lots of action in Tampa Florida. The main character Joe Coughlin goes from being a petty thief to convicted criminal to mob boss. This well crafted crime fiction novel is fast paced, hard-boiled and extremely entertaining. It's a gritty page-turner that keeps you guessing until the surprise ending that you'll never see coming. Dennis Lehane is awesome crime writer, some of his bestsellers include: Mystic River, Shutter Island and The Drop., which was recently made into a movie with Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini. I would highly recommend it for crime fiction lovers.
