「劇情曲折,從不同腳色中轉換敘事角度,這本絕不單調的懸疑小說一路帶你衝到絕對讓你滿意的結局」─時人雜誌

暢銷小說《黑色粉筆》作者令人期待以久的新作!

一九八二年,紐約,馬修把漢娜綁在樹上,拿著BB槍朝漢娜射擊,馬修的好友派奇聽見了槍響,趕到現場之後找到奄奄一息的漢娜,還好漢娜堅強活下來,但一眼受傷失明,只剩下一隻眼睛。

過了二十六年,三人都已是成人,漢娜和派奇結婚,依舊住在紐約,漢娜成為犯罪報導記者,派奇則是成為食物評論部落客。某次巧合遇見馬修,三人各自壓抑的情緒一擁而上,馬修的出現真的是巧合?還是有其他目的?誰又是真正的受害者?

許多懸疑小說都以過去只有少數人知道的祕密為基底,成功的關鍵在於真相如何被揭露還有被揭露的步調,葉慈在這一點上則是處理得非常成功,他一點一點將意外之處放進故事中,轉折一個接著一個,讓讀者想要快速翻到最後一頁。

葉慈靠著出道作《黑色粉筆》聲名大噪,畢業於英國牛津大學,現在將紐約視為第二個家鄉,第二本小說Grist Mill Road再次獲得媒體、讀者好評。


Christopher J. Yates's cult hit Black Chalk introduced that rare writerly talent: a literary writer who could write a plot with the intricacy of a brilliant mental puzzle, and with characters so absorbing that readers are immediately gripped. Yates's new book does not disappoint.

Grist Mill Road is a dark, twisted, and expertly plotted Rashomon-style tale. The year is 1982; the setting, an Edenic hamlet some ninety miles north of New York City. There, among the craggy rock cliffs and glacial ponds of timeworn mountains, three friends--Patrick, Matthew, and Hannah--are bound together by a terrible and seemingly senseless crime. Twenty-six years later, in New York City, living lives their younger selves never could have predicted, the three meet again--with even more devastating results.
