Night Train 

Martin Amis

Signed.  1997 First Edition. 

A captivating mystery of betrayal and deception, Night Train is a groundbreaking departure from one of the world's most acclaimed novelists. 

Detective Mike Hoolihan has seen it all.  A fifteen-year veteran of the force, she's gone from walking a beat, to robbery, to homicide.  But one case--this case--has gotten under her skin. 

When Jennifer Rockwell, darling of the community and daughter of a respected career cop--now top brass--takes her own life, no one is prepared to believe it.  Especially her father, Colonel Tom.  Homicide Detective Mike Hoolihan, longtime colleague and friend of Colonel Tom, is ready to "put the case down."  Suicide.  Closed.  Until Colonel Tom asks her to do the one thing any grieving father would ask: take a second look. 

Not since his celebrated novel Money has Amis turned his focus on America to such remarkable effect.  Fusing brilliant wordplay with all the elements of a classic whodunit, Amis exposes a world where surfaces are suspect (no matter how perfect), where paranoia is justified (no matter how pervasive), and where power and pride are brought low by the hidden recesses of our humanity.
