Alexander Fox, former owner of an antiquarian bookstore in San Francisco, journeys to a fictional Andorra, a country both beautiful and perilous, following an unspecified accident which has left his wife and daughter dead. Sun-splashed but oddly deserted, Andorra affords a personal refuge to Fox until a series of strange events occur.A handsome, promiscuous Australian couple, one prominent Andorran family, teasing socialites, and dead bodies found floating in the harbor cast a shadow over Andorra's picture-postcard surface. An outsider, Fox falls under suspicion of murder and endures a number of puzzling interrogations. Menacing locals and territorial policemen force Fox to contemplate a desperate escape from Andorra.Y Strong hardcover performance.' Outstanding reviews.' Excellent track record of Cameron's prior novel, The Weekend, in Plume.

I'm pretty sure the Andorra in this book bears little resemblance to the actual country. However, it is an intriguing story with vivid details. I would describe it as realist surrealism, kind of like Haruki Murakami. I enjoyed it.
