    L'Amérique se remet difficilement des soubresauts de la Première Guerre mondiale. De retour d'Europe, les soldats entendent retrouver leurs emplois souvent occupés par des Noirs en leur absence. L'économie est ébranlée, le pays s'est endetté et l'inflation fait des ravages. La vie devient de plus en plus difficile pour les classes pauvres, en particulier dans les villes. C'est sur ce terreau que fleurissent les luttes syndicales, que prospèrent les groupes anarchistes et bolcheviques, et aussi les premiers mouvements de défense de la cause noire. Après la série Kenzie-Gennaro, Mystic River et Shutter Island, Dennis Lehane s'attaque au défi de raconter la naissance de l'Amérique moderne sous la forme d'une flamboyante épopée. Noir et social, lyrique et intimiste, « Un pays à l'aube » démontre que Lehane est l'une des voix majeures du roman américain contemporain.

    Journaliste à l'avenir prometteur, Rachel Childs grimpe les échelons à toute vitesse jusqu'au moment où la rédaction de sa chaine de TV l'envoie à Haïti couvrir le séisme de 2010. L'horreur dont elle est témoin lui cause un tel choc qu'elle s'effondre en direct devant les téléspectateurs. C'est le début de la fin. Elle perdra son emploi et restera sujette à des attaques de panique. Cette fragilité psychologique s'explique par le fait que la mère de Rachel, une manipulatrice perverse, lui a toujours caché l'identité de son père. C'est en se lançant dans une quête pour le retrouver qu'elle croisera la route du détective privé Brian Delacroix, dont elle tombera amoureuse. Leur mariage durera trois ans, jusqu'à ce qu'elle découvre qu'il mène une double vie. De la quête du père au mariage avec un homme parfait - trop parfait pour être honnête -, Rachel va aller de révélation en révélation et tout ce qu'elle croyait savoir sur elle-même et sur son entourage va être remis en cause.

    • 30 Juin 2011

    Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro are tough private investigators who know the blue-collar neighbourhoods and ghettos of Boston's Dorchester section as only natives can. Working out of an old church belfry, Kenzie and Gennaro take on a seemingly simple assignment for a prominent politician: to uncover the whereabouts of Jenna Angeline, a black cleaning woman who has allegedly stolen confidential Statehouse documents.
    But finding Jenna proves easy compared to staying alive. The investigation escalates, uncovering a web of corruption extending from bombed-out ghetto streets to the highest levels of state government.With slick, hip dialogue and a lyrical narrative pocked by explosions of violence, A Drink Before the War confronts a city in which institutionalized bigotry and corruption are often the norm, and the true nature of 'racial incidents' is rarely clear. Dennis Lehane's remarkable debut is at once a pulsating crime thriller and a mirror of our world, one in which the worst human horrors are found closest to home, and the most vicious obscenities are committed in the name of love.

So has the first investigator, Trevor Stone hired to find her: Jay Becker, Patrick's mentor.

Nothing is remotely what it seems as the detectives travel from the wind-blown streets of Boston to the rum-punch sunsets of Florida's Gulf Coast and back again, searching for a woman and a man who could be saints or sinners, victims or victimizers, alive or dead.
