Dennis Lehane, “Since We Fell” | Politics and Prose
Lehane’s eleventh novel is a tightly plotted and deft psychological thriller, full of the crisp dialogue and cinematic precision that made Mystic River and Shutter Island not just powerful narratives but memorable screen adaptations. The story centers on Rachel, a TV journalist who has recently gotten her life and career back on track after a traumatic assignment that led to a public breakdown, reclusiveness, and drinking. But when she sees something she can’t quite make sense of, she begins to doubt her senses, her memory, and even her marriage, and is shocked to feel herself spiraling out of control once again.
