The Ghost Network: A Novel

The Ghost Network: A Novel

"Whatever you're expecting from a mystery novel about a beautiful young pop star vanishing, this isn't it. Instead, get ready for coded maps, secret societies, treacherous dancers, architectural conspiracies, 1960s French anarcho-surrealism, and intimate glimpses into the isolation and longing of young queer women. There's something irresistible about fiction in the style of nonfiction. Packed with footnotes, found documents, and real-life detail, sometimes you have to shake yourself to remember that this story, larger-than-life as it is, isn't fact. Relatably weird, weirdly relatable, and the most fun book I've read in ages."

Has the world’s hottest pop star been kidnapped, joined a secret sect, or simply gone into hiding? The answer lies in the abandoned subway stations of Chicago . . .   One minute insanely famous pop singer Molly Metropolis is on her way to a major performance in Chicago, and the next, she’s gone.   A journalist who’s been covering Molly joins the singer's personal assistant in an increasingly desperate search to find her, guided by a journal left behind in her hotel room, and possible clues hidden in her songs—all of which seem to point to an abandoned line in the Chicago subway system.   It leads them to a map of half-completed train lines underneath Chicago, which in turn leads them to the secret, subterranean headquarters of an obscure intellectual sect—and the realization that they’ve gone too far to turn back. And if a superstar can disappear without a trace . . . what can happen to these young women?   Suspenseful and wildly original, The Ghost Network is a novel about larger-than-life fantasies—of love, sex, pop music, amateur detective work, and personal reinvention. Debut novelist Catie Disabato bursts on the scene with an ingeniously plotted, witty, haunting mystery.
