Gavin Sasaki was a promising young journalist in New York City until the day he was fired for plagiarism. The last thing he wants is to sell foreclosed real estate for his sister Eilo's company in their Florida hometown, but he's in no position to refuse her job offer. Plus, there's another reason to go home: Eilo recently met a ten-year-old girl who looks very much like Gavin and has the same last name as his high-school girlfriend, Anna, who left town abruptly after graduation. Determined to find out if this little girl might be his daughter, Gavin sets off to track down Anna, starting with the three friends they shared back when he was part of a jazz group called "The Lola Quartet." As Gavin pieces together their stories, he learns that Anna has been on the run for good reason, and soon his investigation into her sudden disappearance all those years ago takes a seriously dangerous turn.

The interweaving of lives and lies and deception between several former members of a high school music quintet. Who did what to whom? Pretty interesting all through and well-written.

Emily St. John Mandel writes literary stories with quiet mysteries at their core. Her books are perfect for readers who don’t consider themselves mystery readers or for readers you enjoy language and character. Mandel is so good at writing these lovely, fluid, melancholy stories about disaffected people adrift in life.
