Ahoy there me mateys! I adored station eleven and the singer’s gun so much that I got a hold of this book without knowing anything about it other than the author and title. This is a lovely literary book with just a touch of the supernatural and a touch of murder mystery. Ultimately though, the heart of the novel is what I think the author does best – intricate character studies that all eventually tie together.
I really want to gush about this novel but I can’t. Any gushing would just be spoiler-filled and somehow diminish the read. This is my current best read of the year in terms of writing quality even if there be other novels I emotionally enjoyed reading just a bit more (I love Murderbot!).
Goodreads has this to say about the novel (shortened by me):
From the award-winning author of Station Eleven, a captivating novel of money, beauty, white-collar crime, ghosts, and moral compromise in which a woman disappears from a container ship off the coast of Mauritania and a massive Ponzi scheme implodes in New York, dragging countless fortunes with it.
