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. Detective Mike Hoolihan, longtime colleague and friend of Colonel Tom, is ready to "put the case down": suicide, case closed. But Colonel Tom asks Hoolihan to do the one thing any grieving father would ask -- take a second look.

"Deliciously readable... Amis has created a quiksilver narrative that grabs the reader and refuses to let go." - The New York Times

"Brilliantly written, with an emotional force that will tear your heart out." - Calgary Sun

I caught the book about half a year ago.I knew then that I'd be travelling to London & I thought it'd be cool to take the book along.

I can't say the story is one of my favourite but it is an interesting reading.

Found the book on George IV Bridge in Edinburgh while we were there for New Year. Have never managed to read a Martin Amis, but I got through this one really easily. Can't say it's my favourite ever book, but I did enjoy it.

This is my first ever experience of bookcrossing - what a great idea! I live in Reading, UK, so will release it there, or perhaps in Oxford.
