Summary (No Spoilers)
Light and Dark by Dan Sherven is a story of a white cop with a troubled past, Eric, who is desperately chasing an indigenous criminal, Xavier, in an unnamed city in Canada.
This story has some heavy fiction elements, with a large focus on character flaws and less focus on some grounding details. Throughout the course of this fast-paced thrill-ride, the reader is never actually told where the story takes place, other than that it's in Canada, but you will follow each character as they fight their own demons, whether it's substance-abuse or the painful memory of an ex-wife.
Since some of the characters do travel out of the unnamed city to other towns and provinces, I would have preferred to have names for the places so that I could have some idea of the geography in my mind. The lack of that was a detriment to keeping a clear idea of what was happening as the story moved and ultimately caused me to give a lower final score than I otherwise might have.
