Part homage to The Great Gatsby, Vesna Goldsworthy's novel is a poignant tribute to the hollowness that lies at the heart of great wealth and the sadness that can overwhelm great love.
Our narrator, Nick, looks back on the events of that summer in London and recalls the aftermath of Gorsky's murder, and how the person who killed him was eventually caught.
