In thrilling, cinematic style, FROG MUSIC digs up a long-forgotten, never-solved crime. Set in the summer of 1876, when San Francisco is in the fierce grip of a record-breaking heatwave and a smallpox epidemic. Full of songs that migrated across the world, Emma Donoghue's lyrical tale of love and bloodshed among lowlifes captures the pulse of a boomtown like no other.
This is Donoghue's eighth novel and twelfth book of fiction. A bestseller in Canada before publication, it spent 10 weeks on the Maclean's list of Canadian bestsellers and was a New York Times Bestseller and a bestseller in Ireland too.
