  Puppy love inserts itself into the dark and dangerous underground world of 'The Drop.'

Seething is the word that comes to mind as writer Dennis Lehane's "The Drop," about very bad doings in the underbelly of contemporary Brooklyn, unfolds. It seethes with ill will.

But what makes it even more disquieting is that, lounging at Cousin Marv's neighborhood bar, you mightn't know at first blush what illicit things happen here. You wonder, perhaps having an innocent pint or two, how often you've unwittingly sat amongst those involved in the most perfidious

By Stephen Dravis, Sports
12:34PM / Thursday, September 18, 2014
