    Med "Under bordet" vender Dennis Lehane tilbage til gaderne fra New York Times-bestselleren "Mystic River". Marv bestyrer en bar, der fungerer som bank for mafiaen. I baren arbejder Bob, som redder en sølle hundehvalp og møder en arret kvinde. Kun en tåbe ville finde på at røve den bar, hvor New Englands hårdeste gangstere kanaliserer penge - under bordet - i den underverden, som hersker i Bostons barmiljø. Historien skydes i gang med høj kaliber, da to tåber røver Marv's Bar, og den skrider med stor hast over isen i Bostons grå, urbane snelandskab.
