L'Amérique se remet difficilement des soubresauts de la Première Guerre mondiale. De retour d'Europe, les soldats entendent retrouver leurs emplois souvent occupés par des Noirs en leur absence. L'économie est ébranlée, le pays s'est endetté et l'inflation fait des ravages. La vie devient de plus en plus difficile pour les classes pauvres, en particulier dans les villes. C'est sur ce terreau que fleurissent les luttes syndicales, que prospèrent les groupes anarchistes et bolcheviques, et aussi les premiers mouvements de défense de la cause noire. Après la série Kenzie-Gennaro, Mystic River et Shutter Island, Dennis Lehane s'attaque au défi de raconter la naissance de l'Amérique moderne sous la forme d'une flamboyante épopée. Noir et social, lyrique et intimiste, « Un pays à l'aube » démontre que Lehane est l'une des voix majeures du roman américain contemporain.

Número de Páginas: 336

Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro are tough private investigators who know the blue-collar neighbourhoods and ghettos of Boston's Dorchester section as only natives can. Working out of an old church belfry, Kenzie and Gennaro take on a seemingly simple assignment for a prominent politician: to uncover the whereabouts of Jenna Angeline, a black cleaning woman who has allegedly stolen confidential Statehouse documents. But finding Jenna proves easy compared to staying alive. The investigation escalates, uncovering a web of corruption extending from bombed-out ghetto streets to the highest levels of state government. With slick, hip dialogue and a lyrical narrative pocked by explosions of violence, A Drink Before the War confronts a city in which institutionalized bigotry and corruption are often the norm, and the true nature of 'racial incidents' is rarely clear. Dennis Lehane's remarkable debut is at once a pulsating crime thriller and a mirror of our world, one in which the worst human horrors are found closest to home, and the most vicious obscenities are committed in the name of love.

Qui mieux que Lehane le Bostonien pouvait composer cette anthologie autour d'une ville qui inspira aussi George V. Higgins, l'auteur des Copains d'Eddie Coyle ? Pour en brosser un portrait riche et contrasté, onze nouvelles, chacune ancrée dans un quartier. Onze voix, parmi lesquelles celles de Stewart O'Nan, Brendan DuBois, et Dennis Lehane lui-même. Des sujets, des époques et des tons variés et pourtant, un point commun : des personnages proches de la rupture, qui ont tous commis ou vont commettre des actes extrêmes, poussés par les circonstances vers des zones obscures dont ils ne soupçonnaient pas toujours l'existence. Le résultat : des nouvelles conçues comme des romans en miniature et qui échappent aux clichés du genre. Comme l'écrit Lehane dans sa préface, le roman noir n'est pas un genre défini par les borsalinos, les volutes de fumée bleutée, les femmes fatales à la beauté vénéneuse, mais plutôt par des personnages qui se cassent la gueule en descendant du trottoir.

Aturdidos com a inesperada abordagem, Sean e Jimmy veem o amigo Dave ser levado por dois homens que, ao que tudo indica, pertencem à polícia. Mas eles logo percebem que há algo de errado: uma simples disputa entre três garotos de onze anos não justificaria tal intervenção.

Espelhados nas águas turvas do rio Mystic, Sean, Jimmy e Dave tentarão se livrar definitivamente de um passado que por tanto tempo ficou encoberto. Em Sobre meninos e lobos, Lehane retoma a tese de que as consequências das más ações ressoam através do tempo e do espaço, afetando a vida de pessoas inocentes.

Jenna, afro-americana, teria roubado documentos relativos a um projeto de lei polêmico. Como diz o próprio senador, ele e seu grupo têm 'argumentos de peso' para aprovar o projeto, mas, para 'reforçar' a argumentação, usaram métodos não estritamente... legais. Está em jogo, portanto, a imagem pública de gente muito poderosa, mas esse é apenas o início do rastilho de pólvora que Dennis Lehane--come mão de mestre--vai espalhando pelo livro. Patrick Kenzie e sua sócia, Angie Gennaro, serão atirados no fogo cruzado de uma violenta guerra urbana. E, entre conflitos raciais, escândalos sexuais, tráfico de drogas e práticas políticas mais que duvidosas, terão de descobrir o que fazer com sua relação intensa e torturada de amizade e paixão.
