Reviews
"An ingeniously plotted hybrid social/suspense novel . . . [Shapiro] takes her time loading the bases, and in the last inning, she hits it out of the park."--Shelf Awareness
"Metropolis has all the elements I love in a novel: fascinating characters, a pace that crackles with tension, and a deeper message that will resonate with everyone. Once again, B. A. Shapiro weaves a unique and riveting tale."--Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of I Know a Secret
"A rich and gripping journey through intersecting lives, a nuanced exploration of characters who share nothing in common--but almost everything too. Inventive and immersive, it's a page-turner of novel that will also make you want to slow down and soak it all in."--Lou Berney, Edgar Award-winning author of November Road
"In Metropolis, Shapiro is the literary equivalent of a master juggler, writing with tremendous compassion and a wonderful knack for storytelling. Her characters whirl together within the confines of a self-storage unit and, though at its core is a mystery, its beating heart is their stories. It is a dazzling performance and a novel that will stay with me for a long time to come."--Mary Morris, author of Gateway to the Moon
"Part mystery, part sociological study... fascinating."--Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Skillfully crafted with memorable characters, Metropolis is a riveting psychological thriller of a read from cover to cover. Raising crime fiction to an impressively high literary level..."--Midwest Book Review
A "spellbinder from the bestselling author of The Art Forger and The Muralist."--Booklist
