“World Gone By” (William Morrow), by Dennis Lehane

Dennis Lehane’s thrilling trilogy about organized crime in the early 20th century is more than a look at gangsters and their ways. Without glorifying the illegal, Lehane’s “World Gone By” examines how crime works on one’s soul and what it means to know that the life you’ve chosen must give way to the next breed of criminals in this, the gripping finale.

World Gone By” is also a textbook guide on how to end a series as Lehane smoothly guides his characters and plot to a smooth finish in this series that began with “The Given Day” (2008).
