'I worked one hundred murders,' says Detective Mike Hoolihan, an American policewoman. 'In my time I have come in on the aftermath of maybe a thousand suspicious deaths, most of which turned out to be suicides, accidentals or plain unattendeds. So I've seen them all: jumpers, stumpers, dumpers, dunkers, bleeders, floaters, poppers, bursters. But of all the bodies I have ever seen none has stayed with me, in my gut, like the body of Jennifer Rockwell. I say all this because I am part of the story I am going to tell, and I feel the need to give you some idea of where I'm coming from.' Night Train is a mystery story which lingers in the reader's mind even after Mike Hoolihan declares the case closed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Exhilarating...hugely enjoyable... Night Train, like everything Martin Amis has written, shines with disciplined linguistic exuberance in every syllable" -- Sebastian Faulks
"Night Train is both delicate and bruising - a long drawn-out blue note. The book hangs around in the mind like smoke in a jazz club" -- Allison Pearson * Telegraph Magazine *
"A virtuoso performance. Deliciously readable, highly polished... Mr Amis has created a quicksilver narrative that grabs the reader and refuses to let go" * New York Times *
"Night Train pushes the boundaries of noir almost to the edge of darkness" * Time *
"A work of dark romanticism, a tale of possession... prose crackling with wit and invention" * New York Times Book Review *
