This neo-Victorian murder mystery set in a remote gold-mining town in New Zealand. In 1866, a weary Englishman lands here and comes across a gathering of 12 local men embroiled in an investigation of three crimes which occurred in a single day. Winner of the 2013 Man Booker Prize, this lyrical and descriptive tale is a bit of a shaggy dog story.
