Dennis Lehane returns to the streets of his acclaimed New York Times bestseller Mystic River with The Drop
A love story wrapped in a crime story wrapped in a journey of faith
Three days after Christmas, a lonely bartender looking for a reason to live rescues an abused puppy from a trash can and meets a damaged woman looking for something to believe in. As their relationship grows, they cross paths with the Chechen mafia; a man grown dangerous with age and thwarted hopes; two hapless stick-up artists; a very curious cop; and the original owner of the puppy, who wants his dog back. . . .
The basis of the major motion picture from Fox Searchlight Pictures directed by Michal Roskam, screenplay by Dennis Lehane, and starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, and James Gandolfini.
