Boston private investigators Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro's relationship has hit the skids - their long-standing professional commitment and growing romance have disintegrated due to seemingly irreparable personal differences. But despite these problems, Prayers for Rain brings them together again to close down a predator whose modus operandi seems to put him beyond the law. This killer's insidious murder weapon is within his victims' minds: no smoking gun, no bloody knife, just merciless manipulation until despair drives his targets to kill themselves. As Patrick and Angie attempt to identify and save his next victim, this sinister force turns on them and thus begins a dangerous battle of wits: a tormenting, life-threatening game of psychological warfare in which simple survival seems a mixed blessing - because not even the winner will emerge unscathed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"With sharp dialogue, inventively gruesome violence and the darkest of dark humor, Lehane's fifth novel proves again that he's the hippest heir of Hammett and Chandler" * Publishers Weekly (starred review) *
"A masterpiece. Stunning. Brilliant. Mesmerizing. Satisfying. All that and so much more... Steal this book if that's the only way you can get your hands on it" * Deadly Pleasures *
"Lehane's gritty psychothrillers have carved a distinctive patch on the map of contemporary crime writing... One of the most electrifying thriller writers" * Guardian *
"The well-oiled plot mechanics, edge-of-the-knife dialogue and explosive bursts of violence are polished and primed in this hard-boiled shocker" * The New York Times Book Review *
