The Nightworkers

Author Brian Selfon worked in criminal justice so its no surprise that his debut novel would have an authentic feel. He’s an excellent writer that brings poetic life to these unlikeable characters. The initial story revolves gangster Henry and his friend Emil who are both painters. Brian Selfon has a knack for finding humanity in these monstrous people. The structure is a bit confusing and suffers from a non-linear time frame. So even with the elegance of his writing, he fails to engage the reader.
