    DescriptionNew Yorker Danny is running from something. A loner who cannot bear to be apart from his Wi-Fi connection, he is in need of refuge. His cousin Howie is an enigmatic and successful former drug addict who just happens to own a castle. As they turn the castle from crumbling ruin to luxury hotel, Howie and Danny must navigate their uncomfortable relationship. And the castle has some surprises of its own: a sinister baroness, a tragic accident in a fathomless pool, a treacherous labyrinth, and through all of this, a story within a story ...An unnerving, haunting and unforgiving tale of modern life and modern man, the novel before A Visit from the Goon Squad is filled with Egan's breathtaking style and remarkable voice.

    Review quote
    This is one of those rare books that reminds you of exactly why you love reading. Full of wry reflections on communication, loneliness and the power of the imagination, it's so entertaining you'll forget to be impressed. DAILY MAIL Prodigiously entertaining and profoundly moving New York Times Egan has conjured a surreal and creepy contemporary horror story which eerily veers between reality and fantasy. SUNDAY TELEGRAPH Dizzyingly inventive Washington Post A novel boobytrapped with metafictional tricks and trap doors, it makes traditional gothic tales look positively homely in comparison INDEPENDENT A smart tale that is horror, fantasy and thriller, yet never loses its hold on the reader. A gripping yarn RTE GUIDE
