about

A suspenseful, transporting literary thriller about a British novelist who heads to Venice after a public breakdown, by Christine Mangan, the bestselling author of Tangerine.

It''s 1966 and years have passed since the initial success of Frankie Croy''s debut novel. She has spent her career trying to live up to the expectations of her editor and fans, only to fall short with each new publication. Now, after a particularly scathing review of her most recent work, alongside a very public breakdown, Frankie retreats to her friend''s vacant palazzo in Venice to recharge and get re-inspired.

Then Gilly appears. A precocious young admirer eager to befriend her favorite author, Gilly seems determined to insinuate herself into Frankie''s solitary life. But there''s something about the young woman that gives Frankie pause, that makes her wonder just how much of what Gilly tells her is the truth. Set against the catastrophic 1966 flooding of Venice, the encounters between these two women will lead to a series of lies and revelations that will tragically disrupt both of their lives.

Palace of The Drowned is a masterful literary thriller, a gorgeously rendered and twisted tale of art and ambition.

A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books

"In her taut and mesmerizing follow up to Tangerine, the preternaturally gifted Christine Mangan plunges us into another exotic and bewitchingly rendered locale...Voluptuously atmospheric and surefooted at every turn, Palace of the Drowned more than delivers on the promise of Mangan''s debut, and firmly establishes her as a writer of consequence." - Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife and When the Stars Go Dark

Christine Mangan is the author of the national bestseller, Tangerine. She has her PhD in English from University College Dublin, with a focus on 18th-century Gothic literature, and an MFA in fiction writing from the University of Southern Maine.
