Dexter is well and truly back on form with this book. As with a previous title Paris Trout race lies at the heart of this tale of crime, golf, decency, brutality and a strange friendship in ‘50s LA. Hypnotic, compulsive and superbly written. This is really a book to read and recommend.

If you like Pete Dexter you might also like to read books by John Irving, Don DeLillo and Jonathan Franzen.

Synopsis

Train by Pete Dexter

Lionel Walk, better known as Train, is a young black caddy at an elite Los Angeles golf course, where he comes to know a police detective he calls 'The Mile-Away Man'. Norah Still is unwillingly at the centre of a criminal investigation, as the only survivor of an attempted boat hijacking Sergeant Miller Packard - Train's 'Mile-Away Man' - is in charge of the case and, as he quietly manages the crime scene, he finds himself drawn to the beautiful widow. As Train leaves his job to become a golf hustler, managed by Packard, the three are drawn into an uneasy triangle-Pete Dexter's remarkable new novel brings to life the most violent and tender impulses of his characters as they struggle to come to terms with the difference between a gift and a passion, between their abilities and their desires.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
