Night Train by Martin Amis is a short, sharp shock of a mystery about the apparent suicide of Jennifer Rockwell, the brilliant and beautiful beloved daughter of Colonel Tom, top cop in a major American city. Veteran detective Mike Hoolihan, who spent some weeks drying out in her boss's home several years earlier and thus feels beholden to him, is asked to investigate. What transpires is a tour of Jennifer's perfect universe that simultaneously takes Hoolihan on her own inner journey. Amis has worked in the crime/mystery genre before with his early novel Other People and recently with London Fields.
