Town itself and the story of Henry and those who tell it begins to affect the narrator policeman’s own life in ways he never expectedThis is a detective story like no other a novel that further confirms Jonathan Buckley as one of the finest novelists at work in this country. I picked this book up in the Mystery Novels category but it didn t feel like one to me It was like a gradual but clear depiction of how the lives of people intercross through countless engaging anecdotes and interesting characters but to different degrees and how the feelings evoked from these relationships are of varying intensitiesThe style of writing was great the descriptions were so aptly put and there was no pretentiousness about themI felt involved in the book and my curiosity as to who killed Henry kept me reading but for those who enjoy a solid takeaway from books like an evocation of sadness or whatsoever this book may not be for you

    A murder mystery detective who done it with no villain This is about the minutiae of life – with all of its loose odds and ends irrelevancies disappointments slightly disconcerting as I read through most of it trying to spot the baddy but I guess things don't always ever? end up neatly with solutions found and conclusions drawn The writi
