Danny Coughlin is Boston Police Department royalty and the son of one of the city's most beloved and powerful police captains. His beat is the predominately Italian neighbourhoods of the North End where political dissent is in the air - fresh and intoxicating. On the hunt for hard-line radicals as a favour to his father, Danny is drawn into the ideological fray and finds his loyalties compromised as the police department itself becomes swept up in potentially violent labour strife. Luther Lawrence is on the run. A suspect in a nightclub shooting in Oklahoma, he flees to Boston, leaving his wife behind. He lands a job in the Coughlin household and meets Danny and the family's Irish maid, Nora, who once had a powerful bond. As the mystery of their relationship unravels, Luther finds himself befriending them both even as the turmoil in his own life threatens to overwhelm him. Desperate to return to his wife and child, he must confront the past that has followed him and settle scores with enemies old and new. Set at the end of the Great War, The Given Day is meticulously researched and expertly plotted, it will transport you to an unforgettable time and place.

I’m a big Lehane fan so it was clear that I was going to read “The Given Day”. That, despite the fact that I knew the book was “a novel” and not a crime mystery book, as his previous work are. I know, I know, I’m a bit narrow-minded!

“The Given Day” had its moments. Very few though! I’m thinking of the affair between Danny and Tessa, that part of the book brought good suspense. Apart from that I must confess that I mostly struggled to get through it. The fact that the book is around 700 pages doesn’t help much either.

Strange enough, at the end of the day I don’t feel disappointed. I think I knew exactly what I was going to get into. I knew “The Given Day” wasn’t the typical book I read and that Dennis Lehane wrote it because it was in his nature to do so. I mean, every talented man has the right to get bored if they have been doing something for too long. My hope though is that these 700 pages get him into thinking something like “Ok, so writing good crime fiction wasn’t so bad after all”. I really hope so, because if that isn’t the case then I think I’ll have to re-read the Kenzie and Gennaro series.
