In photographic terms, "hard light" usually means bright sunlight, single-source lighting in a studio environment, or point-source strobe fire mounted to a camera. In all cases, it is contrasty lighting where shadow detail falls off to non-descriptive black areas of the photo- or cine-graph. This effectwhen viewed by a lay personcan elicit the response of, "gee, I can't see into the shadows." Author Hand's Hard Light is a study of finding purpose and meaning in those pitch black corridors of human behavior. Not forgiveness, not sympathy, and certainly not abdication. A solution is reached, however, but it is academic, considering the damage experienced by the victors, victims, and the vanquished in process. Again, Cassandra Neary takes no prisoners; she is too busy trying to set herself free.

Like Iceland and Paswegas Island before, this is a very convoluded exploration. It is London this time
