9780062310958: World Gone By CD: A Novel (Joe Coughlin Series)

FromNew York Timesbestselling 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, inWorld 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 listener on a ride through the growth of the mob during a world at war, a ride that takes 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.

Product Description:

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, 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.

From the Back Cover:

“Lehane writes convincingly tensely . . . powerfully.”—USA Today

Late spring, 1943. The world is at war but the American mob is in its heyday. Former crime boss Joe Coughlin now works as a consigliere to the infamous Bartolo Crime Family, effortlessly handling their interests in Tampa, Boston, and Cuba. In the decade since he lost his wife in a cascade of bullets, Joe has made a home for himself and his son, and once again forged everything out of nothing: money, power, a relationship with a beautiful woman, and a privileged place in Tampa’s shadowy underworld.

But a rumor surfaces that someone wants Joe dead. And he has only days to figure out who, or he will die. And then there’s the ghost—a young boy who appears on the fringes of Joe’s vision and seems to be trying to tell him something. Racing against time and fate, Joe hurtles through a violent yet intoxicating world on the brink of total collapse or epic triumph, a world on the cusp of reinvention and rebirth—where the old codes, the old sins, and the old dreams may soon be swept away once and for all.

“The novel’s plot is as complex as its morality.”—Daily News (New York)

“Lehane has Elmore Leonard’s ear for dialogue.”—Miami Herald
