As they look more into Karen’s background and family history, they realize they’re not chasing an ordinary killer, and they must put all their skills to practice in order to bring him to justice.
Prayers for Rain
But then a strange thing happens in the home stretch when he suddenly turns into a total pussy once a bit of his mysteries taken away. Dennis Lehane’s Prayers for Rain is a good example of the phenomenon. Parker plot line may be it was all the psychiatrist stuff. Apr 10, Zach rated it really liked it Shelves: The corners of her mouth twitched, too. Angie and Patrick were soon back to their old selves. Yet the good stuff is balanced by gratuitous scenes of violence and brutality: This minor point probably would not have bugged me if I wasn’t already pissed off about the bad guy origin.
Lehane’s sense of place is acute, and his ear is finely attuned to the voices of Boston’s many neighborhoods, as Patrick and Angie trace Karen’s downward spiral, from the exclusive, cobbled streets of Beacon Hill to the wharves and bars of the North End. Six months later Karen jumps naked from a six Karen Nichols, a seemingly perfect prime and proper young lady, hires private detective Patrick Kenzie to warn off Cody Falk, a stalker who has a history of rape and abuse of women.
When Kenzie once again questions Falk, he discovers that the stalker had received several notes, purporting to be from Karen Nichols herself, inviting him to continue pursuing her.
Prayers for Rain (Kenzie & Gennaro, #5) by Dennis Lehane
Their love and team spirit are the two elements that keep me coming back to Lehane, again and again. The profanities are aplenty, but add to the rawness of the “real” characters peayers throughout the book. The family secrets begin to unravel. It made the book about pages too long. Also, to make Wesley’s and Scott’s plans work, Lehane had to create a lot of co-conspirators, which makes the story rather far-fetched.
His case sees him reunited with Angela and spending a lot of time with Bubba Rogowski, all the while learning more than he ever wanted to know about the Nichols family. Anyway, this book was a lot easier to read, the story is good, really I took a Lehane break after Gone, Baby, Gone.

Mystic River Shutter Island Coronado: What I love most about these books, is the complex, build up to problem solving what has happened or is happening.
If you want to read a series you can enjoy over and over again, with great characters and characterization, then Lehane is your guy. But I never learn my lesson it seems Stupid, if he had done his research and fired one, he would know how little recoil there is.
I don’t have many regrets, but one that I do have is having watched Mystic River when I did. Six months later Karen jumps naked from a six story building and Patrick wants to learn what happened. This isn’t the best of the series. Views Read Edit View history. Whether manipulating third parties into doing his dirty work, destroying the innocent for the fun of it, or leading poor Kenzie on a literal game of cat and mouse.
By then it is too late, as Karen is dead. I give 4 stars for Prayers for Rain.
The characterisation is also superb. Welcome sarcastic descriptions, infuriating and hilarious comments, smartass answers!
