‘Given Day’ — a ‘majestic, fiery epic’

When an author switches genre, there’s always a concern about how well it will sit with his fans.

No more thinking of Mr. Lehane as an author of detective novels that make good movies (“Gone, Baby, Gone”) and tell devastatingly bleak Boston stories (“Mystic River”). He has written a majestic, fiery epic that moves him far beyond the confines of the crime genre.
