A single, dazzling day in the life of George Webb -- ex-policeman turned private investigator -- illuminates his checkered past, his now all-consuming relationship with a former client, and the catastrophic events that involved them both two years ago.The Light of Day combines a powerful love story and a narrative of intense suspense into a brilliant and tender novel about what drives people to extremes of emotion. This new novel from Graham Swift -- his first since the Booker Prize-winning Last Orders -- is a luminous and gripping tale of love, murder and redemption. Intimate, tender, and humorous in its depiction of life's surface, electrifyingly intense in its exploration of the depths that lie within us, this is a masterful novel from one of today's most widely admired and important English writers. Graham Swift is the author of six previous novels and a short story collection. His work has been widely translated and has won prizes internationally, including the Booker Prize for Last Orders. Reader Graeme Malcolm has appeared on Broadway, off-Broadway, and in regional theater as well as in films and television.
