內容簡介


《冰血暴》(Fargo) 編劇最新作品,披著驚悚故事的外衣,探問命運、人性的溫柔小說。

Scott Burroughs是個剛戒了酒的落魄畫家,因緣際會與一群富人搭上了從瑪莎葡萄園島(位於麻薩諸塞州外海,是個富豪群聚的小島)返回紐約市的噴射機,起飛後16分鐘,飛機墜毀了。Burroughs靠著泳技,帶著四歲大的小男孩JJ,奮力對抗兇猛的洋流,游了15英里,從飛機墜毀處回到岸上。

小說在飛機墜毀前機上乘客的背後故事,與墜機後一連串的後續反應,相互交織地進行著。一個媒體王國之家、一個遊走派對的男人、一個以色列保鑣加上一個有毒癮的副駕駛。這個墜機事件,到底是預謀還是意外?隨著國家運輸安全委員會(NTSB)與聯邦調查局一步步調查,機上乘客的詭計被揭露,各種詭異的巧合直指一項密謀。 Bill Cunningham,一個新聞從業者,也是機上一位乘客的朋友,利用消費這個悲劇,以增加收視率,並煽動群眾對Scott Burroughs的憤怒與指責。畫家該如何面對這醜惡的名聲?他更關心的是那個有著上億美元信託基金的JJ過得可好?

在脈搏加速的懸疑中,Scott 與JJ脆弱的關係微微地發著光,這本小說探問命運、人性,以及將我們綑綁在一起的那個微弱連結。

On a foggy summer night, eleven people-ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter-depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs-the painter-and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul's family.

With chapters weaving between the aftermath of the crash and the backstories of the passengers and crew members-including a Wall Street titan and his wife, a Texan-born party boy just in from London, a young woman questioning her path in life, and a career pilot-the mystery surrounding the tragedy heightens. As the passengers' intrigues unravel, odd coincidences point to a conspiracy. Was it merely by dumb chance that so many influential people perished? Or was something far more sinister at work? Events soon threaten to spiral out of control in an escalating storm of media outrage and accusations. And while Scott struggles to cope with fame that borders on notoriety, the authorities scramble to salvage the truth from the wreckage.

Amid pulse-quickening suspense, the fragile relationship between Scott and the young boy glows at the heart of this stunning novel, raising questions of fate, human nature, and the inextricable ties that bind us together.
