    All the action in this novel takes place on the night before Christmas Eve in Philadelphia, when three disparate characters are all motivated by hope—nine-year-old Madeline dreams of one day becoming a jazz singer; her fifth-grade teacher Sarina, still stinging from her divorce, anxiously awaits a dinner party where she will be reunited with an old flame; and Lorca, owner of legendary jazz club The Cat’s Pajamas, desperately wishes he can find the money to save his venue in time. Seeking love, music and their individual hopes, it’s a night all three of them will never forget.

Martin compendium, this gripping tale is small in stature but chock-full of creeping dread.

    On December 3, 1976, just days before the Jamaican general election, seven gunmen burst into reggae singer Bob Marley’s house and opened fire, wounding Marley, his wife and a host of others. Insufficient details about the incident were released at the time; Marlon James’ Man Booker prize-winning novel is an exploration of what happened, who did it and why, and how the events shaped an entire culture.
