Book 4 of 52 -- Dennis Lehane's Sacred

Sacred is another terrific mystery in the series featuring Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro, the team you'd want on your side if you needed a private investigation -- if only they were real people.

Lehane describes these characters in such realistic detail and uses such crisp dialogue that you forget that they are only fictional characters.

Nonetheless, they are characters you want to get to know better, and Lehane successfully evolves the personalities of Patrick and Angie in each of the five books in the series.

Thus, it's best if you read the series in chronological order.

Sacred is very fast-paced and loaded with surprising plot twists, which forces you to read on non-stop.

Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to all of Lehane's books.
