Great little book

Any additional comments?

A short but very enjoyable listen.

Dennis Lehane has written some excellent thrillers and a few have been made into fairly great movies. This is the third iteration of The Drop as it started life as a short story, was then written for screen and lastly fleshed out into this short novel, more or less the opposite way to normal!

The dingy Boston bar and the dangerous cast of characters that make it their home are all well drawn out in such a short space of time, none moreso than Bob, whose quiet life erupts in the wake of the bar he works in being robbed and him finding a puppy. What a strange sentence to write!

Great short listen, well read and thoroughly recommended as are the majority of Lahane's books
