The Silver Swan by Benjamin Black

I don’t know why they do it, but every so often, literary, award-winning novelists decide to write popular fiction. One such author is John Banville, who won the Mann Booker for ‘The Sea’. As Benjamin Black he writes detective fiction featuring a gloomy Dublin pathologist named Quirke. I rather enjoyed ‘The Silver Swan’ for its period 1950s setting and atmospheric writing. Definitely quirky!  Reviewed by JAM
