A NovelBook - 2014
"It is 1866, and Walter Moody has come to stake his claim in New Zealand's booming gold rush. On the stormy night of his arrival, he stumbles across a tense gathering of 12 local men who have met in secret to discuss a series of unexplained events: a wealthy man has vanished, a prostitute has tried to end her life, and an enormous cache of gold has been discovered in the home of a luckless drunk. Moody is soon drawn into a network of fates and fortunes that is as complex and exquisitely ornate as the night sky. Richly evoking a mid-nineteenth-century world of shipping, banking, and gold rush boom and bust, [this] is at once a fiendishly clever ghost story, a gripping page-turner, and a thrilling novelistic achievement."--Page 4 of cover.

Love cannot be reduced to a catalogue of reasons why, and a catalogue of reasons cannot be put together into love.
