    Started out great! As time went by, and all the different business interests entered the story, I began to have questions, etc. To me, the ending didn't do the story justice. But I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Europe to place I have been and places I haven't yet been! Lots of suspense during much of the book, but somewhere along the way, it lost its luster.

    What a great story. Moves along at a nice and comfortable clip. Interesting characters only enrich the plot. Reminds me of why I love fiction so much. And just the perfect length. I often feel that many of the books I read could have accomplished the same if they were shorter. But not Nightwork.

    You can read it in one sip. Like usual in the book of Shaw you can find excellent language, interesting story and open final - you don't see happy end or any end at all. He just pauses the story and all of rest is your fantasy business.

    I had not read Shaw before, but I knew of his reputation. I thoroughly enjoyed my first venture and have subsequently purchased another Irwin Shaw book. The characters here were interesting and the plot both hopeful and thoughtful. Most of the action takes place in Europe and that added something different for me as well. Who knew that a somewhat criminal act could have so many consequences and touch so many lives. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    I've read the Rich Man books years ago and enjoyed them. A few days ago I read another Shaw book. It really gave me a jolt. Then I picked up Night work and was just blown away again. Gonna get another, and another...

    This book makes you question your moral compass and certainly contemplate shades of grey. It doesn't give you all the answers but keeps you wondering what will happen next. Glad I stumbled across it.

    Reading about the author's own experiences makes this novel even more intriguing! The story and the characters keep the reader's interest to the last paragraph.
