Harvard Book Store welcomes the New York Times–bestselling author of Live By NightMystic River and Shutter Island DENNIS LEHANE for a reading from his latest novel, Since We Fell.

About Since We Fell

Since We Fell follows Rachel Childs, a former journalist who, after an on-air mental breakdown, now lives as a virtual shut-in. In all other respects, however, she enjoys an ideal life with an ideal husband. Until a chance encounter on a rainy afternoon causes that ideal life to fray. As does Rachel’s marriage. As does Rachel herself. Sucked into a conspiracy thick with deception, violence, and possibly madness, Rachel must find the strength within herself to conquer unimaginable fears and mind-altering truths. By turns heart-breaking, suspenseful, romantic, and sophisticated, Since We Fell is a novel of profound psychological insight and tension. It is Dennis Lehane at his very best.


“Lehane has written two books—one, an insightful examination of the search for identity and belonging, and two, a thriller that constantly leaves you guessing—and then smashed them together into one terrific read.” —Gillian Flynn, author of Gone GirlDark Places, and Sharp Objects

“A crafty, ingenious tale of murder and deception-and a deeply resonant account of one woman’s effort to heal deep wounds that don’t easily show.” —Kirkus

“Complex, tense, compelling, and an emotional and strategic hall of mirrors, where nothing is what it seems—but I would follow Dennis Lehane anywhere.” —Lee Child, author of the Jack Reacher novels

Dennis Lehane is the author of eleven previous novels prior to Since We Fell, including the bestsellers Live By NightMoonlight MileGone, Baby, GoneMystic RiverShutter Island; and The Given Day. His novels have been translated into more than 30 languages and have become international bestsellers.
