Dennis Lehane's stunning novel Live By Night is now a major film, produced, directed and starring Ben Affleck - due for release in January 2017 Joe Coughlin is nineteen when he meets Emma Gould. A smalltime thief in 1920s Boston, he is told to cuff her while his accomplices raid the casino she works for. But Joe falls in love with Emma - and his life changes for ever. That meeting is the beginning of Joe's journey to becoming one of the nation's most feared and respected gangsters. It is a journey beset by violence, double-crossing, drama and pain. And it is a journey into the soul of prohibition-era America... A powerful, deeply moving novel, Live By Night is a tour-de-force by Dennis Lehane, writer on The Wire and author of modern classics such as Shutter Island, Gone, Baby, Gone and The Given Day. Dennis Lehane has had several of his New York Times bestselling novels made into films, such as Gone, Baby, Gone, Mystic River, Shutter Island, and The Drop.
