I was wowed by it. --Nancy Pearl on NPR's Morning Edition <br> 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.
