Something Sacred

(2001)
A novel by

 
 
Nick Carraway was once a journalist and a damn good one, too. So how come he's about to take one of the longest journeys any man can make - from prison cell to court room to stand trial for murder?

As the first day of his trial begins, Nick reflects on how he came to be accused of killing another human being, and remembers those who played their part: Jordan Baker, the poor, persecuted transvestite; Frank Bosch, the crooked cop Nick thought he had in his pocket; Kevin O'Neil, his editor at the Daily Post; and McQueen, the Post's proprietor and chairman of the far reaching conglomerate InfoCorps. But above all Nick is haunted by the memory of Jamey Gatz, the beautiful, mysterious heroine of a subway shooting. He so desperately believed she would be his big break, and hers would be the story that would make his name, his fortune and change his life. And how right he was, for life would never be the same again...

Confirming its author as a maverick young writer of supreme talent and invention, Something Sacred is at once a searing satire on the media and a beautifully written and affecting story of love, betrayal and - maybe just maybe - redemption.
