place covering considerable time considerable history It is a book with heft and not just from its 700 pages Live By Night while not sharing the same scope as its predecessor was an amazing book that carried the Coughlin family gangster story forward in the context of American history There were added artistic elements that gave the work some extra oomph With World Gone By the scope of the first and even the second book is abandoned for a smaller tale The ghostly visitation by a young boy that Joe experiences would be interesting if Lehane had not played a very similar card already in Live by

2Interviews Ivy Pochoda for the LA Review of Books John Wilkens for the Union Tribune San Diego Colette Bancroft for the Tampa Bay Times I completely enjoyed this book for a number of reasons I m not a fan of bad boys so when I found myselfrawn to Joe Coughlin I was shocked Yes he s a gangster however he possesses a bit of a conscious or at least twinges of guilt in some instances and his Gem is Mine but Heart is Yours devotion to his son was theeal breaker forcing me to become a fan Joe walks the tight rope of morality and immorality uestions right and wrong searching American Africans in Ghana Black Expatriates and the Civil Rights Era The John Hope Franklin Series in African American History and Culture deep within for justification of ugly tasks performed Joe is a walking contradiction as flawed as flawed can be Lehane allows the reader into his head and heart the gritty lonely uestionable life of a gangsterPlenty of action all characters were colorful a few vibrant than others I had no idea where Lehane would take Joe was there a hit placed on him or was it merely a rumor Who would be the assassin The story unravels hitting a monumental apex with twists galore I was pleased with the ending admittedly Iidn t see it comingI m a sucker for a narrative uestioning morality you will find yourself pondering much along with Joe I enjoyed the era too the harsh and

Live By Night Dennis Lehane s World Gone By picks up as Joe Coughlin settles into a position acting as a bridge between the criminal underworld and high society Coughlin makes a lot of people a lot of money which means a lot of people are very happy so why has a hit been ordered on himOver the past few years Dennis Lehane has slowly crept into Lawrence Block territory for me in that he s uickly becoming one of my favorite living crime writers although I m not sure Block has written a book I isliked as strongly as Since We Fell but that s neither here nor thereWorld Gone By weaves a rich tapestry of characters and settings All the major players are interconnected through alliances and rivalries that consistently raise the stakes based on actions by outside forces Joe is put through

another layer of complexity upon his predicament Despite this he s the ordeal that he hallucinates regularly adding another layer of complexity upon his predicament Despite this he s hard character to have sympathy for While Joe s relationship with his ten year old son certainly lightens his character Lehane won t let you forget just how little empathy Joe has for others and isn t shy about showing the ruthless side of the self made gangsterThere s than enough gangland politics and violence in here to satisfy ardent Lehane fans Some scenes one in particular involving a tense standoff between two foes at a kitchen table were so intense I caught myself speed reading Although it is not as strong as its predecessor Live By Night World Gone By is a great conclusion if he so chooses to conclude here to his Coughlin series that began with a sprawling epic efining post War American life in the early twentieth century The Given Day Lehane has noted in past interviews that he views this as less of a trilogy and a group of three standalone novels that are connected through a family bloodline I suppose that s true Joe is barely a character in the first novel while Joe s older brothers are seldom mentioned in the later books so it isn t exactly linear Either way I wouldn t read any of these books without reading the others It s an intricate story that I feel reuires all three books be read in orderWith a particularly haunting ending World Gone By provides a good finish line for the series although I would not be against a continuation should he choose to o so Any subseuent seuels or spin offs would likely be very Aliens Abroad different Along with his Kenzie Gennaro series Dennis Lehane has ownership of two of my favorite modern crime sagas out there Do I really need to tell
