Using her signature style of diamond sharp social satire, page-turning action and plot, humor and pathos, Gloria Nagy has written a true tour de force of a novel, set on the perfect metaphorical site; the most lavish cruise ship in the world; a symbol of a world gone mad with excess. The ship, gliding serenely, reveals nothing of the turmoil within and its human cargo, mirroring the deception. Nothing and no one on the Palace of the Dolphins is what it seems, and none of them will return (those who do) unchanged.
