The Drop

I just finished reading  The Drop, by Dennis Lehane.  If you are looking for a quick read with suspense and a plot twist you won't see coming, try this book.  I liked that it was set in Boston, and I liked the author's references to landmarks in that city like the public library, Quincy Market, the river, etc.  So, although I can't wait to see the movie version, (I want to see James Gandolfini in one of the last films he completed) I was disappointed to see the trailer suggest Brooklyn as a setting.  I usually don't like when movies depart too far from the original, so I hope it is only the setting that has been changed, because the plot and characters were perfect.

Happy reading,
