Reviews

Mandel's talent is clearly visible from the get-go . . . The beauty of the novel is that its key truths are those the reader arrives at on his or her own, without the help of a straight-line narrative or a dominating perspective. Instead, Mandel feeds off of our need to make connections, even when the pattern they form doesn't really exist. We start with anxiety and end with it, thrumming in the background for us to listen in - or ignore, at both cost and reward * LA Times *
The Singer's Gun begins like a straightforward crime thriller . . . But Emily St. John Mandel's new novel is something far rarer than this classic noir opening suggests. She introduces us to haunted, often fugitive individuals stranded in places from New York to Italy, from the past to the present. And her book strikes a perfect balance between introspection and action . . . an eminently satisfying thriller * Washington Post *
Brilliant * Boston Globe *
Mandel has a beautiful writing style * Independent on Sunday *
Mandel is an exuberant storyteller * New York Times *
In this intricate novel, her second after Last Night in Montreal, Mandel underscores the notion that everything in life comes with a price tag, and sometimes that cost is remarkably high. ... An intriguing and suspenseful read that will appeal to those who like mysteries * Library Journal *
