World Gone by: A Novel


Dennis Lehane Libri


New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane&;s World Gone By continues the epic story of Joe Coughlin from The Given Day and Live by Night through World War II, as he struggles to navigate the criminal underworld between Cuba and Florida. &;Suspenseful, devious, well-constructed and as filled with ethical questions as it is with gangsters.&; &;New York Times 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 stunning work of historical fiction from one of &;the most interesting and accomplished American novelists&; (Washington Post).
