The Drop

Author:

Dennis Lehane

Synopsis:

Bob Saginowski is a quiet, lonely man working in a Boston bar ostensibly owned by his cousin Marv - though the real owners are a Chechen gang who use it, along with other places around the city, as a 'drop' for their illicit gains. Two days after Christmas Bob rescues an abused puppy from a trash can and meets Nadia, a damaged woman looking for something to believe in. Then he finds himself at the centre of a robbery gone awry, and suddenly a cop named Torres is asking about a decade-old murder; the Chechens who own the bar want their $5,000 back; and a lowlife named Eddie Deeds wants $10,000 for the dog Bob found in the trash. What's a friendless bartender to do?

Synopsis:

Bright and ambitious, young Jim Stringer moves from the English countryside to London, eager to begin work as a railwayman at Waterloo Station. It is 1903, the dawn of the Edwardian age, when steam runs the nation and the railways drive progress. Jim finds, however, that his duties involve a graveyard shift, literally - a railway line that takes coffins from London morgues to the gigantic new cemeteries being dug in the city's outskirts. He also learns that the men he works alongside have formed an instant loathing of him - and his predecessor has disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Can Jim work out what's going on before he's issued a one-way ticket aboard the Necropolis Railway?
