Dennis Lehane - The Drop (Paperback edition)

From a short story in Boston Noir to a feature film to a bookstore near you, The Drop by Dennis Lehane is a hardnosed story with a bit of heart.  Bob Saginowski is a down-on-his luck bartender in a Boston dive, slowly spiraling toward a pitiful demise.  But the plaintive howls of an abandoned dog set him on a new path, if not of redemption, then at least of awakening.  Before Bob can become a new man, though, he'll have to wade through a variety of thugs, mobsters, and tough guys--not to mention his own crooked cousin, Marv.
