Dennis Lehane anyone?

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I've recently stumbled on Lehane in the form of audiobooks on my commute.  It started with Coronado, an amazing collection of stories that really got my attention.

 

Then I found out, he's the dude that wrote Mystic River, and since I'd heard of that, I got that audiobook, as well as Shutter Island.

 

Both of which are taut thrillers with great eureka moments and remarkably good writing, especially for genre fiction.

 

I'm impressed.
