Description
In this gripping sequel to Generation Loss (winner of the inaugural Shirley Jackson Award for the best work of psychological suspense), Nebula and World Fantasy Award winner Elizabeth Hand takes her damaged, drug-addicted antiheroine, rock music photographer Cass Neary, to Helsinki and Iceland. As Neary authenticates a series of gruesome photographs with her unflinching eye, she also pursues a lost lover, and plunges into a violent Nordic demimonde of heavy metal music, ancient mythology, and long-shrouded murder.

"The millions who devoured Stieg Larsson's 'Millennium' trilogy will not flinch at Hand's dark subject matter. Like Lisbeth Salander, Cass Neary evokes sympathy and admiration despite her tough exterior."—Library Journal

"The scariest person in [this book] is its heroine, Cassandra Neary, a post-punk photographer who flamed out after a brief career on the Lower East Side in the down-and-dirty 1970s.... Hand could never get away with this stuff if she weren't such a strong writer. Her studies of artists and musicians are something fierce, and there's a deadly beauty to her bleak rendering of the Nordic landscape."—NYTimes

"Fiercely frightening yet hauntingly beautiful, with a startling heroine you'll never forget, Available Dark shimmers with gorgeous writing even as it scares the dickens out of you. I've long been a fan of Elizabeth Hand's amazing books, and once again she proves why she is truly a writer's writer, her prose so glowing it makes all the rest of us jealous."—Tess Gerritsen
