Stella Krakus, a curator at Manhattan's renowned Central Museum of Art, is having the roughest week in approximately ever. Her soon-to-be ex-husband is stalking her, a workplace romance is in freefall, and a beloved colleague has gone missing. It's almost more than she can overanalyze. Then a mysterious map of the 19th-century utopian settlement appears.


Customer Reviews

An art historical mystery that will interest fans of Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch, with a narrator equal parts intellectual, ironic, and cool…A diversion and a pleasure, this novel leaves you feeling smarter and hipper than you were before.
