內容簡介

「Davis毫無破綻地架構了這本可說是懸疑小說的首部作品,向1950年代的紐約市致敬,它同時也是經典的愛情故事...。Darby與Rose在不同的章節中穿插最細微的線,彎彎繞繞,最後碰到了一塊,其結果就是優秀的老派懸疑故事。」
--《出版人週刊》星級評論

「情節錯綜又富含時代細節,要把這個大都會的野心故事放下,是不可能的。」
--《時人雜誌》

1950年代一個叫Barbizon女子飯店的公寓,住著嚮往在紐約成功的各類女性,模特兒、秘書與編輯比鄰而居,而當今的新聞記者,一心想挖掘出深埋於Barbizon光輝過去的黑暗秘密。

Darby McLaughlin註冊了祕書學校,在1952年住進了知名的Barbizon飯店,Darby長得平庸、在意別人的看法、犯了思鄉病,完全不像她在模特兒經紀公司的寓友們。當Darby與Barbizon的清潔女傭Esme做了朋友,她被帶到了全然陌生的城市另一面:城裡髒亂不堪的爵士樂酒吧,那兒的音樂就如海洛因一般讓人上癮:震撼人心的bebop爵士樂音,還有談一場浪漫戀愛的可能。

半個世紀之後,Barbizon老去的公寓,及大半的房客都已被遺忘。但是關於Darby在1952年與清潔女傭之間致命小口角的謠言,卻在公寓大廳迴旋不去,就如同從老婦公寓裡傳出的憂鬱樂音飄浮在空氣中一般。帶血的謠言與藍色的音樂,使得Darby樓上的房客Rose Lewin關不住她新聞記者靈敏的鼻子,更何況,挖掘別人黑暗的過去,正好可以轉移她對個人糟透了的生活的注意力。當Rose對案件越來越執著,新聞倫理變得越來越模糊,事實揭露之後,這兩個女人的生命將不再一成不變。

"Rich both in twists and period detail, this tale of big-city ambition is impossible to put down."
--People

 
Fiona Davis's stunning debut novel pulls readers into the lush world of New York City's glamorous Barbizon Hotel for Women, where in the 1950's a generation of aspiring models, secretaries, and editors lived side-by-side while attempting to claw their way to fairy-tale success, and where a present-day journalist becomes consumed with uncovering a dark secret buried deep within the Barbizon's glitzy past.
 
When she arrives at the famed Barbizon Hotel in 1952, secretarial school enrollment in hand, Darby McLaughlin is everything her modeling agency hall mates aren't: plain, self-conscious, homesick, and utterly convinced she doesn't belong—a notion the models do nothing to disabuse. Yet when Darby befriends Esme, a Barbizon maid, she's introduced to an entirely new side of New York City: seedy downtown jazz clubs where the music is as addictive as the heroin that's used there, the startling sounds of bebop, and even the possibility of romance.
 
Over half a century later, the Barbizon's gone condo and most of its long-ago guests are forgotten. But rumors of Darby's involvement in a deadly skirmish with a hotel maid back in 1952 haunt the halls of the building as surely as the melancholy music that floats from the elderly woman's rent-controlled apartment. It's a combination too intoxicating for journalist Rose Lewin, Darby's upstairs neighbor, to resist—not to mention the perfect distraction from her own imploding personal life. Yet as Rose's obsession deepens, the ethics of her investigation become increasingly murky, and neither woman will remain unchanged when the shocking truth is finally revealed.
