LoveReading View on Train
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 â€˜50s LA. Hypnotic, compulsive and superbly written. This is really a book to read and recommend.
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.
