The Washington Post From the award-winning author of Station Eleven, an exhilarating novel set at the glittering intersection of two seemingly disparate events-the exposure of a massive criminal enterprise and the mysterious disappearance of a woman from a ship at sea. Vincent is a bartender at the Hotel Caiette, a five-star lodging on the northernmost tip of Vancouver Island.

On the night she meets Jonathan Alkaitis, a hooded figure scrawls a message on the lobby's glass wall: Why don't you swallow broken glass. High above Manhattan, a greater crime is committed: Alkaitis's billion-dollar business is really nothing more than a game of smoke and mirrors. When his scheme collapses, it obliterates countless fortunes and devastates lives.

 

《華盛頓郵報》 
來自《如果我們的世界消失了》的獲獎作者,這是一部令人振奮的小說,故事發生在兩個看似截然不同的事件的閃亮交匯處--一個龐大犯罪組織的曝光和一位女子從海上輪船神秘失踪。文森特則是溫哥華島北角一家五星級凱耶特酒店的酒保。
 
在她遇到喬納森•阿爾凱蒂斯的那天晚上,一個戴著帽兜的人在大廳的玻璃牆上潦草寫下了一個訊息:你為什麼不吞下碎玻璃?在曼哈頓上空發生了更大的犯罪事件:阿爾凱蒂斯數十億美元的企業其實只是一場騙局。當他的計謀失敗時,很多人將傾家蕩產,死無葬生之地。
