Our latest Book Trailer of the Week is for Dennis Lehane’s new historical crime epic Live by Night. A follow-up of sorts to 2008’s masterful The Given Day, the novel revisits the Coughlin family in Prohibition-era Boston as youngest brother Joe defies his police officer father to climb the ladder of organized crime. As his rum running empire grows from Tampa all the way to Batista’s Cuba, however, a Vito Corleone-like Joe struggles to protect his family from his violent chosen path. Described by Booklist as “an utterly magnetic novel on every level,” Live by Night is Mystic River-author Lehane at his best. Don’t miss it.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQ1TRZZpMX4]
