Summary
Through a skillful weaving of characters and plotlines, coming together like a completed puzzle, Saccomanno has crafted a monumental novel where individual stories unnerve us while building to the unexpected and explosive finale. Like True Detective through the lenses of William Faulkner and John Dos Passos, Gesell Dome is a mosaic of misery, a page-turner that will keep you enthralled right until its shocking end. Opening with reports of a child abuse scandal at an elementary school, then weaving its way through dozens of sordid storylines and characters--including various murders, corrupt politicians and real-estate moguls, and the Nazi past of the city--Gesell Dome chronicles the dark underbelly of a popular resort town tensely awaiting the return of the tourist season
