I feel bad writing this- but I found the book to be meh.

I read it because my friend recommended it to me. She loved it. Yet for me, it just kind of left me feeling empty and a little sad. Maybe the twist could have been better? I wonder if this was an instance of the movie being better than the book.

DNF. I read three Dennis Lehane novels pre-librarything (pre-2009): Mystic River, Prayers for Rain, and Sacred. I didn't recall the books thus gave them two stars. Librarything average rating is upper three, low four. I saw Small Mercies had a solid 4.25 average rating. I gave it a shot, and glad I did. Very violent book and well done. Before getting to Prayers for Rain, I read The Given Day. That book was also entertaining, though had annoying parts. I gave Small Mercies and The Given Day four stars. Unfortunately, I then started Prayers for Rain. I did not enjoy it. I think some of the dialog and situations were supposed to be humorous, but it did not work. I see the reason for my original comment:
I read a couple by Dennis Lehane, but I gave up on him.

Gotta say, I really enjoyed all but two of these stories (and of those two, one was just kind of there, the other was okay, but not to the level of the others).

Are all the stories truly noir? Well, noir covers a wide swath, yet I still think the genre was stretched a touch with some of the entries. But were they entertaining? Yes, yes they were. So, for that, I'll allow the latitude.

Good collection, definitely worth the read.
