This masterful novel of psychological suspense from the New York Times bestselling author of The Art Forger follows a cast of unforgettable characters whose lives intersect when a harrowing accident occurs at the Metropolis Storage Warehouse in Cambridge. B.A. Shapiro’s Metropolis introduces us to a cast of intriguing characters: Serge is a homeless street photographer who sleeps in his storage unit; Marta is an illegal immigrant who seeks refuge from ICE by hiding in hers; Liddy camps out in hers after escaping her abusive husband; Jason is a lawyer who uses his unit as his office; Rose is the office manager who takes kickbacks; and Zach is the building owner is an ex-drug dealer. When a fateful accident occurs, these six very different people, with seemingly no link to each other beyond the Metropolis Storage Warehouse in Cambridge, Massachusetts, see their precariously balanced lives torn apart. But was it an accident or something else? Suicide, perhaps? Murder?
