Detective Mike Hoolihan has seen it all. A 15-year veteran of the force, she's gone from walking a beat, to robbery, to homicide. But one case-this case-has gotten under her skin. When Jennifer Rockwell, darling of the community and daughter of a respected career cop-now top brass-takes her own life, no one is prepared to believe it. Especially her father, Colonel Tom. Mike Hoolihan, longtime colleague and friend of the colonel, is ready to put the case down. Suicide. Closed. Until Colonel Tom asks her to do the one thing any grieving father would ask: take a second look.

Not since his celebrated novel Money has Amis turned his focus on America to such remarkable effect. Fusing brilliant wordplay with all the elements of a classic whodunit, Amis exposes a world where surfaces are suspect (no matter how perfect), Where paranoia is justified (no matter how pervasive), and where power and price and pride are brought low by the hidden recesses of our humanity.

    " The first time it doesn't happen you sigh and it's very hot and it feels wet. The next time it is a failure, but you have to find faith in that, in what you are doing. More than anything else, that there is will. There is will to do the thing you are doing. Period. Then there is of course, a period, for chrissake, finally. "

    " An interesting look at how someone could have "everything" and still be misereable. "

    " I found this book tedious. The main character Mike Hoolihan (a female cop) is no longer a detective but gets caught up in a highly political suicide. The excess of "cop speak" is annoying and draws away from the story. I understand this is a police novel and some should be expected but every chapter? They accepted it was a suicide without much investigation and then the mother asks Mike to check again because obviously something was wrong with her daughter. It gets a little better at this point but still disappointing and has a totally dissatisfying ending. This is my first novel by this author and most probably my last. "
