Synopsis

The Glass Hotel begins at the end, with a fall: a woman plummeting from the deck of a cargo ship, her body quickly swallowed by the sea. It is a death that happens between continents, outside of jurisdictions: a death that will likely go unremarked and unsolved.

Years earlier a massive Ponzi scheme implodes in New York, taking with it the finances, hopes, and lives, of hundreds of people.

The Glass Hotel is a novel about the interconnected lives tangled up in two very different tragedies. It is a book about love and guilt, greed and the need to survive, and it is a book populated by ghosts - these people are haunted by the different lives they might have lived, and by those they wish they'd never lost.
