An absentee father grows a conscience and asks Tyrone Swift, former Metropolitan and Interpol police officer turned private investigator, to find out why, 15 years after the fact, his son was beaten to a pulp and left for dead. Swift soon realizes everyone in this dysfunctional family is hiding something, but he perseveres in bringing closure to the father, because that’s what he agreed to do.

This story involves secrets, abandonment, sexual identity issues, dysfunction, and brutality. Swift has relationship issues of his own, and is plagued by a series of pranks that start out small and annoying, and escalate into violence. While he’s trying to figure out who did what to whom in the Bartlett family, he’s also trying to figure out who wants to do him harm, and how to stop it.

This book makes me wish it were possible to rate a work 3.5 stars; it is definitely a better novel than others I have given 3 stars to. It is well plotted and well written.
It is just so pervasively sad. I tend to expect that the resolution of the plot in a mystery or suspense tale will bring with it some, if not joy, then at least some relief or safety to the lives of those the writer has made the reader care about. Not here, however. This is a story of lonely, isolated people (including the detective who solves the crime at the heart of the book), who are as lonely at the end of the work as they were to begin with. Many of these characters lead lives of desperation or occasionally viciousness. It depicts parents so self-centered or narrow minded that they destroy the lives of their children. And with one exception, it takes these now adult children and shows them working out their warped destinies. It takes the most purely happy character and the most purely innocent... Read more
Set in England, a private investigator is asked to solve a murder of a teenage boy that occurred 15 years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and the characters. The book caught my interest from the beginning and kept me guessing. Although it takes place in England the vernacular did not make the book hard to follow like some books with so many local English references that go over this New Yorker's head. The writing was adequate but I had some issues that prevented me from giving the book 5 stars. The story seemed to switch from 1st to 3rd person, however, this wasn't distracting. Also the story seemed to take place over several months which seemed to be for the benefit of the back stories (Swift's cousin planning a wedding, the development of Swifts's love interest, etc) These were interesting story lines but it is hard to believe the protagonist could take months to solve this mystery and not work any other cases. The time line of the investigation seems like it took place over days... Read more
