The Girl in the Glass: A Novel by Jeffrey Ford

The Great Depression has bound a nation in despair -- and only a privileged few have risen above it: the exorbitantly wealthy ... and the hucksters who feed upon them. Diego, a seventeen-year-old illegal Mexican immigrant, owes his salvation to master grifter Thomas Schell. Together with Schells gruff and powerful partner, they sail comfortably through hard times, scamming New Yorks grieving rich with elaborate, ingeniously staged s ances -- until an impossible occurrence changes everything. While communing with spirits, Schell sees an image of a young girl in a pane of glass, silently entreating the con man for help. Though well aware that his otherworldly powers are a sham, Schell inexplicably offers his services to help find the lost child -- drawing Diego along with him into a tangled maze of deadly secrets and terrible experimentation. At once a hypnotically compelling mystery and a stunningly evocative portrait of Depression-era New York, The Girl in the Glass is a masterly literary adventure from a writer of exemplary vision and skill.
