From the author of THE REHEARSAL comes a bold neo-Victorian murder mystery set in a remote gold-mining frontier town in 19th-century New Zealand, in which three unsolved crimes link the fates and fortunes of 12 men. Winner of the 2013 Man Booker Prize, THE LUMINARIES is the longest novel in history to win the prize, and Eleanor Catton is the youngest fiction writer to receive this great honor.
