The Lola Quartet

Author(s): Emily St. John Mandel

Fiction

How far would you go for someone you love? The Lola Quartet: Jack, Daniel, Sasha and Gavin, four talented musicians at the end of their high school careers. On the dream-like night of their last concert, Gavin's girlfriend Anna disappears. Ten years later Gavin sees a photograph of a little girl who looks uncannily like him and who shares Anna's surname, and suddenly he finds himself catapulted back to a secretive past he didn't realise he'd left behind. But that photo has set off a cascade of dangerous consequences and, as one by one the members of the Lola Quartet are reunited, a terrifying story emerges: of innocent mistakes, of secrecy and of a life lived on the run.

Percolates with suspense New York Times Elegant and hypnotic ... Mandel brilliantly modulates the heightening suspense in a novel that remains, above all, an elegy for lost innocence Washington Post The book virtually trumpets the author's talents: her charismatic verbal grace and acuity, the rich atmosphere she creates Boston Globe Mandel is an exuberant storyteller New York Times Mandel has a beautiful writing style Independent on Sunday Mandel (The Singer's Gun) strikes a confident chord in her third novel ... The author again melds mystery plotting with literary techniques like shifting points-of-view, resulting in both sophistication and suspense ... Mandel's novel excels as a character study that considers the slow degradation of hopes, dreams, and expectations of people who are only in their late 20s but already feel ancient Publisher's Weekly This ingeniously structured literary thriller begins in sunlight before slipping deeper and deeper into crime and moral darkness. ... Emily St. John Mandel is so sure-footed in her invention and so good at delineating her cast, that I went along trustingly and with bated breath Star Tribune Riveting... Evocative, intriguing, and complex, this novel is as smooth as the underbelly of a deadly, furtive reptile. Mandel's substantial fan base will rejoice; word of mouth will bring new fans on board Library Journal
