Lazy Sunday Service

On Friday I travel to New York and then on to Boston to give a couple of talks and to hook-up with some folk relating to work projects.  I've two books lined up for the trip so far, Lyndsay Faye's The Gods of Gotham and Andrew Cotto's Outerborough Blues.  Whilst I'm in New York I'm hoping to spend some time in one or both of Partners & Crime Mystery Booksellers and The Mysterious Bookstore to browse titles and fill-up part of a suitcase.  Any recommendations for a Boston novel to pick-up for the second half of the trip?

Unfortunately Partners in Crime went out of business a little while ago.

That's a shame. Their website is up and running, so I figured it was still going. Probably good for my wallet.

If you haven't read them yet, Dennis Lehane's Mystic River and William Landay's Defending Jacob are two very good novels set in Boston.
