內容簡介


以《房間》暢銷全球的美國小說家Emma Donoghue,帶來震撼人心的歷史謀殺懸疑新作!全書宛如驚悚電影,許多歌曲隨著小說情節發展穿插其中,營造出具體真實的獨特顫慄氛圍!
 
 
《Frog Music》的創作靈感來自一宗被世人遺忘已久的歷史懸案──「1876年的舊金山,一名年輕女子Jeanne Bonnet慘遭射殺身亡,至今尚未結案。」小說情節藉由脫衣舞孃Blanche Beunon娓娓道來展開,延伸出美國新移民、流浪漢、破碎家庭、和受虐兒種種引人省思的複雜議題。
 
 
1876年的舊金山盛夏熱浪來襲,高溫再度破紀錄,天花疫情蔓延不止。在中國城的巷弄內,住著以前待在巴黎馬戲團的三名舞者:脫衣舞孃Blanche Beunon、她的愛人Arthur,和Arthur的男友Ernest。當奇特的謎樣女子Jeanne Bonnet闖入他們三人的生活後,許多祕密被逐一揭穿,原有一切全變了樣,還致使其中一人死於非命……
 
From the author of the worldwide bestseller Room: "Her greatest achievement yet...Emma Donoghue shows more than range with FROG MUSIC--she shows genius." -- Darin Strauss, author of Half a Life

Summer of 1876: San Francisco is in the fierce grip of a record-breaking heat wave and a smallpox epidemic. Through the window of a railroad saloon, a young woman named Jenny Bonnet is shot dead. 

The survivor, her friend Blanche Beunon, is a French burlesque dancer. Over the next three days, she will risk everything to bring Jenny's murderer to justice--if he doesn't track her down first. The story Blanche struggles to piece together is one of free-love bohemians, desperate paupers, and arrogant millionaires; of jealous men, icy women, and damaged children. It's the secret life of Jenny herself, a notorious character who breaks the law every morning by getting dressed: a charmer as slippery as the frogs she hunts.

In thrilling, cinematic style, FROG MUSIC digs up a long-forgotten, never-solved crime. Full of songs that migrated across the world, Emma Donoghue's lyrical tale of love and bloodshed among lowlifes captures the pulse of a boomtown like no other.
