Who is behindit? What do they want? Epic in scope yet intimate, capturing the ordinarydramas of very different lives, this is a novel of love and suspicion, offinancial collapse and terrorist threat, of property values going up andfortunes going down, and of a city at a moment of extraordinary tension.
