Swann’s Way Out

1 Mins read

Detective Swann is solicited during a poker game to track down Rusty Jacobs a guy who’s run off with a million bucks in Charles Salzburg’s latest. The detective doesn’t want to do it, but a $1000 a day is too much to turn down and he reluctantly takes the case. He heads to Hollywood where posers, wannabes, and laughs abound. Swann is tailed in the book by an existential midlife identity crisis and Salzberg does a terrific job of navigating the emotional terrain. Swann’s Way Out, the fourth book in the Swann series, is a funny, sharp, and touching look at what it means to age, that doesn’t take the easy road and packs a surprising emotional wallop. Read the full review here.
