1 Amis, Martin NIGHT TRAIN
New York, NY, U.S.A.: Harmon 1998 0375702520 / 9780375702525 Paperback Good 
I'VE SEEN THEM ALL: JUMPERS, STUMPERS, DUMPERS, DUNKERS, BLEEDERS, FLOATERS , POPPERS, BUSTERS...BUT OF ALL THE BODIES I HAVE EVER SEEN NONE HAS STAYED WITH ME, IN MY GUT LIKE THE BODY OF JENNIFER ROCKWELL...' So says Detectiv e Mike Hoolihan, an American policewoman, a police in cop parlance - a term which acknowledges that gender is not what a good cop is about. Mike begin s to investigate the suspicious death of Jennifer, a police colleague's dau ghter, a girl too blessed in looks and love and intelligence to want to exi t life. The evidence swings towards suicide - the gun in her hand, the suic ide note, the secret history of depression and drug addiction, and then swi ngs away-three shots to the head; could a suicide administer THREE, and why does the autopsy reveal no sign of drug abuse? As Mike probes further into Jennifer's life and death, she approaches the puzzle at the dark heart of the case: 'If not who, then why?' That unanswerable question resonates thro ughout this haunting short novel and even when Mike announces her investiga tion concluded and case closed, it lingers in her reader's mind.

2 Amis, Martin RACHEL PAPERS
Knopf Doubleday Publishing G. 1992 0679734589 / 9780679734581 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. In his uproarious first novel Martin Amis, author of the bestselling London Fields, gave us one of the most noxiously believable - and curiously touching - adolescents ever to sniffle and lust his way through the pages of contemporary fiction. On the brink of twenty, Charles High-way preps desultorily for Oxford, cheerfully loathes his father, and meticulously plots the seduction of a girl named Rachel - a girl who sorely tests the mettle of his cynicism when he finds himself falling in love with her.
