Books of the Year TOP TEN PICK - Publishers Weekly'Like Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch...

A stunning novel of ideas that becomes a page-turning thriller... ' Stylist'A fast-paced, ambitious, hallucinatory mystery' Publishers WeeklyA dizzying, nail-biting ghost story about modern America from the bestselling author of The ImpressionistTwo twenty-something New Yorkers: Seth, awkward and shy, and Carter, the trust fund hipster.

They have one thing in common: an obsession with music.

Rising fast on the New York producing scene, they stumble across an old blues song long forgotten by history -- and everything starts to unravel.

Carter is drawn far down a path that allows no return, and Seth has no choice but to follow his friend into the darkness. Electrifying, subversive and wildly original, White Tears is a ghost story and a love story, a story about lost innocence and historical guilt.

This unmissable novel penetrates the heart of a nation's darkness, encountering a suppressed history of greed, envy, revenge and exploitation, and holding a mirror up to the true nature of America today.
