Long night's journey into…

4 out of 5 stars

The light of day - Graham Swift:

Brilliantly written, Swift has a wonderfully sparse but loaded style. Disgraced ex-copper turned PI falls for a client who ends up behind bars and spends some quality time reflecting on how things all went pear-shaped.

There's not a lot actually happens in here (apart from reminiscence about love, death and longing) but it is extremely engaging throughout. It's a bit of time since I read any Swift (Waterland remains top 20) and I did really enjoy it, by and large, despite feeling it was all a little bit empty at the end.
