World Gone By

by Dennis Lehane

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, Tomas, is growing up. Now, the former crime kingpin works as a consigliore to the Bartolo crime family, travelling 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, US 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.
