Summary
"A poignant and hilarious oral history of a (fictitious) musical phenomenon. Celebrated music critic and cultural historian David Hajdu unravels the mystery of a one of-a-kind artist, a pianist with a rare neurological condition that enables her to make music that is nothing less than pure, unmediated emotional expression. Her name is Adrianne Geffel, praised as 'the Geyser of Grand Street' and the 'Queen of Bleak Chic'. Yet despite her renown, she curiously vanished from public life, and her whereabouts remain a mystery to this day. Hajdu pieces together her story through the memories of those who knew her, inspired her, and exploited her--her mother, father, best friend, producer, critics, teachers--in this slyly entertaining work of fiction. Adrianne Geffel is at once a piercing satire, a vividly twisted evocation of New York in the 1970s and '80s, and a strangely moving portrait of a group of characters both utterly familiar and like none we've ever encountered."-- Provided by publisher.

"As the owner of the city's most exclusive casino, Clayton Madden holds the fortunes of prominent families in the palms of his hands every night. There is one particular family he burns to ruin, however, one that has escaped his grasp... until now. She is society's darling... Florence Greene is no one's fool. She knows Clayton Madden is using her to ruin her prestigious family... and she's using him right back. She plans to learn all she can from the mysterious casino owner - then open a casino of her own just for women. With revenge on his mind, Clay agrees to mentor Florence. However, she soon proves more adept - and more alluring - than Clay bargained for. When his plans are threatened, Clay must decide if he is willing to gamble his empire on love."--Publisher description.

Summary
On December 3, 1976, gunmen stormed Bob Marley's house, machine guns blazing, nearly killing all inside. Marley left the country three days later, not to return for two years. Deftly spanning decades and continents and peopled with a wide range of characters - assassins, journalists, drug dealers, and even ghosts - this is the fictional exploration of that dangerous and unstable time and its bloody aftermath, from Kingston in the '70s, to a radically altered Jamaica in the 1990s.
