Prayers for Rain

Paperback Amazon Barnes and Noble. Call it a weak moment, but I went ahead and watched it. Patrick Kenzie is approached by a woman named Karen Nichols who asks him to scare off a stalker.

Some of the story was very hard to follow, I had to keep flipping back to find out what was going on, but in the end it all started to come together, like connect the dots.

I usually hate this kind of “hurt-the-hero’s-friends” crime story immensely. Six months later Karen jumps naked from a six story building and Patrick wants to learn what happened. Would you expect rzin less?

The MCs were great.

Prayers for Rain (Kenzie & Gennaro, #5) by Dennis Lehane

The story wasn’t as tight as his other work, but still a good read to pass my commute time. Until we find out that the bad guy is Trivia About Prayers for Rain Of course, I can’t read it now, at least until I’ve totally forgotten the movie. Sadly, only one book left, and here it is 23 years after he wrote the first Kenzie and Genarro. Yes, I will read the final book, set 11 years after this.


I had been very familiar with Dennis Lehane at the time, and the opportunity came to see the movie even though I hadn’t read the book yet. Plot point that bugged me. I give 4 stars for Prayers for Rain.

Dennis Lehane is usually a solid 4 stars for me. And, sadly, again I don’t really have time to be writing a review, but I wanted to put one out anyway-Because my Patrick and Bubba and Angie deserve one.

He and his former partner, Angela Gennaro, will fight a mind-twisting battle against the psychopath, even as he turns tricks on them…. What I love most about these books, is the complex, build up to problem solving what has happened or is happening. Paryers, 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.

I felt the pain and loss, as I always do when bright young people are hurt or lose their way. Other than that, I’d say this one was almost as good as Gone Baby Gone. I fof to see the movie; and since I make it a point never to see a mystery movie without reading the book, I read the book-and was hooked. A brief synopsis of the setup: Patrick has clearly lost his balance since Angela left him. Nov 08, Perry rated it liked it.


Which no one gets, because six months later the woman fr to her death off the Custom House tower.

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. Refresh and try again. Very few cliches here, mostly well-written stuff. What’s more, I had my defenses up this time around. Everyone, including the policeAand Karen’s strangely unsympathetic familyAchalks it up to a streak of extraordinarily bad luck, but Patrick is suspicious.

However, he gets very interested when Karen Nichols hires him to help get a stalker off her back. After Patrick succeeds in suggesting to ptayers fellow that he would survive longer if he left her alone, the situation quiets down.

The “omnipotent” mailman as a literary device is straight out of G. If you’ve read this review of the Kenzie and Gennaro books, than you’ve read them all. Apr 28, Mike rated it really liked it Shelves:
