World Gone By

Dennis Lehane: World Gone By (USA 2016)

From the Publisher:
Dennis Lehane, the New York Times bestselling author of Live by Night -- now a Warner Bros. movie starring Ben Affleck -- delivers a psychologically, morally complex novel of blood, crime, passion, and vengeance, set in Cuba and Ybor City, Florida, during World War II, in which Joe Coughlin must confront the cost of his criminal past and present.

Ten years have passed since Joe Coughlin's enemies killed his wife and destroyed his empire, and much has changed. Prohibition is dead, the world is at war again, and Joe's son, Tomás, is growing up. Now, the former crime kingpin works as a consigliore to the Bartolo crime family, traveling between Tampa and Cuba, his wife's homeland.

A master who moves in and out of the black, white, and Cuban underworlds, Joe effortlessly mixes with Tampa's social elite, U.S. Naval intelligence, the Lansky-Luciano mob, and the mob-financed government of Fulgencio Batista. He has everything -- money, power, a beautiful mistress, and anonymity.

But success cannot protect him from the dark truth of his past -- and ultimately, the wages of a lifetime of sin will finally be paid in full.

Dennis Lehane vividly recreates the rise of the mob during a world at war, from a masterfully choreographed Ash Wednesday gun battle in the streets of Ybor City to a chilling, heartbreaking climax in a Cuban sugar cane field. Told with verve and skill, World Gone By is a superb work of historical fiction from one of "the most interesting and accomplished American novelists" (Washington Post) writing today.

World Gone By

Dennis Lehane: World Gone By (USA 2015)

From the Publisher:
From New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane, the epic story of Joe Coughlin continues through World War II, as one man struggles to navigate the criminal underworld between Cuba and Ybor City, Florida. Meticulously researched and artfully told, Lehane solidifies his reputation 'among the most interesting and accomplished American novelists of any genre or category' (Washington Post).

It s been ten years since the former crime kingpin Joe Coughlin lost his wife in a rain of gunfire. Now, in World Gone By, Joe lives his life deep in the shadows as a consigliere to the Bartolo Crime Family in Tampa. There he tries to raise his son, Tomás, in peace, traveling between Tampa and his son s native Cuba during the height of World War II. Ever the operator, Joe moves easily between the black, white, and Cuban underworlds, crossing paths with Tampa s social elite, US Naval intelligence, the Lansky-Luciano mob, and the mob-financed government of Fulgencio Batista. He has it all money, power, a beautiful mistress, and anonymity. But then word arrives from a prison inmate that someone has placed a contract on Joe s life. Trying to ferret out both the killer and the man who hired him, Joe takes the reader on a ride through the growth of the mob during a world at war, which leads us from a masterfully choreographed Ash Wednesday gun battle in the streets of Ybor City to a chilling, heartbreaking climax in a Cuban sugar cane field, during which all the worst truths are uncovered and the wages of a lifetime of sin are finally paid in full.
