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 the work of a master storyteller. The Light of Day 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.
