Dennis Lehane, the New York Times bestselling author of The Given Day and Live by Night, returns with a psychologically and 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, Tom's, 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.

"I'm just the sap who lost everything, my home, my son, my standing, could still loose my life. To protect a rat.... what am I supposed to believe in now?" Joe is a made man who has a lot and looses a lot, looking for love in a very wrong place. Yes he's a gangster, everyone near him knows. Even his young son. My first listen/read of this series. Great narration. Will look for backstory. A bit evocative of James Lee Burke (a high personal recommendation). Not just the ghosts.
