"Sacred" makes 4 out of 5 of the books read in Dennis Lehane's Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro series. They feel like friends and sometimes you just want to hang out with friends. Yes, even if they are chasing kidnappers and getting shot at and punching people. In this one you can't trust anyone. Just remember that. Oh, it's fun and not taxing and I like Lehane's writing. I'm sad because I read somewhere that the series may not be continued after "Prayers for Rain" which is the last one I have to read.
