Event Details

This masterful novel of psychological suspense from the New York Times bestselling author of The Art Forger follows a cast of unforgettable characters whose lives intersect when a harrowing accident occurs at the Metropolis Storage Warehouse in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Serge is a homeless street photographer who sleeps in his storage unit; Marta is an illegals immigrant who seeks refuge from ICE by hiding in hers; Liddy camps out in hers after escaping her abusive husband; Jason is a lawyer who uses his unit as his office; Rose is the office manager who takes kickbacks; and Zach the buildings owner is an ex-drug dialer. When a fateful accident occurs, these six very different people, with seemingly no link to each other beyond the Metropolis Storage Ware-house in Cambridge, Massachusetts, see their precariously balanced lives torn apart. But was it an accident or something else? Suicide, perhaps? Murder?

This is a Jewish Book Council program. Shapiro will be interviewed by Barbara Shoup.
