This was a most unusual, beautifully written, emotional book. The protagonist being a private investigator and a murder occurring is only the framework for what is one of the best-written, most profound love stories I've read in a long time.

I highly recommend it.

Subject matter is a little grim as is a most of the Graham Swift I've examined, but well worth the read (or listen in this case). Ending a little inconclusive, but by then I had developed a rapport with the narrator.

Masterfully read by Graeme Malcolm; his voice and accent reminded me of Michael Caine, one of my favorites, which added to my enjoyment.
