I'm finishing up "Mystic River", but not sure which Lehane to read  next.  Any suggestions? I love his descriptions and the way he draws you into the life of his characters!

A Drink Before the War (1st in a series), then the 2nd Darkness, Take My Hand.

I agree with Crystal - I loved that series.  I think there are 5 of them and I sat and read all 5 one right after the other and was thoroughly entertained!  I'm not sure when he is coming out with the next in the series, but I can't wait!

After Mystic River I think I would go with Shutter Island then jump into the Kenzie - Gennaro series...

You can't go wrong with Lehane...

He's flat out one of the best there is...

Not part of a series but The Given Day is terrific!

Jeffrey is also right, Shutter Island was really good!!  I read it before I read anything else of Lehane's and was instantly hooked.
