A beautiful, grief-stricken woman has vanished without a trace. So has the detective hired to find her. And a lot of money…

Enter tough-nosed private investigators Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro. Rooted in the streets of blue-collar Dorchester, they've seen it all – and survived. But this case leads them into unexpected territory: a place of lies and corruption, where trusting anyone could get them killed, and where nothing is sacred.

Another superior thriller from Dennis Lehane, the bestselling and acclaimed author of Mystic River, Shutter Island, and Gone, Baby, Gone.


  • Better and better…

    Dennis Lehane does dark with the best of them…yet somehow he manages to keep sight of a sunrise up ahead.
  • Dennis Lehane is the best writer there is.

    By Meirdart
    Dennis Lehane is to mystery fiction what George Pelecanos is to crime-drama screenwriting and urban gangster crime-fiction. He has the ability to instantly draw me in and keep me drawn in for hundreds of pages. What I love about Sacred is that Lehane does not relentlessly drag me through twist after twist, but rather builds higher and higher on a single developed plot involving an exceptionally wily bunch of schemers.
  • What a disappointment!

    After reading other Lehane books this turned out to be an incredible let down. The conclusion was terrible just awful!
