內容簡介

  經典巨作《長路》作者麥卡錫沈寂16年
  再度推出長篇探究關於道德與科技的大哉問
 
  1980年,凌晨三點,密西西比州某個小鎮上,Bobby Western剛拉上他潛水防寒外衣的拉鍊,在美國海巡隊的監管下,潛入了黑暗之中。他的潛水頭燈照亮了沈在海裡的那艘飛機,9具屍體還卡在位置上,頭髮隨洋流擺動,眼神早已失去任何生氣。9具?第10個失事者去了哪?連同飛行員的飛行包和黑盒子都不知所蹤⋯⋯對於本來就討厭下潛,卻只能在紐奧良海邊從事打撈員,已經活得夠辛苦的Bobby,竟然還攤上這樣的麻煩案件。追隨而來的秘密探員並不相信他的說詞,私認為是Bobby將這位失事者藏起來,不斷騷擾他和同事,而同事竟然在此事件後身亡。現在Bobby無論是生命或是精神上都不斷遭受來自現在和過去種種威脅,來自秘密探員、來自他死去那位創造原子彈的父親,以及——來至他摯愛卻又成為他心中崩毀處的妹妹⋯⋯

  麥卡錫將在今年12月初,推出本作第二部《Stella Maris》。

  The best-selling, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Road returns with the first of a two-volume masterpiece: The Passenger is the story of a salvage   diver, haunted by loss, afraid of the watery deep, pursued for a conspiracy beyond his understanding, and longing for a death he cannot reconcile with God.

  Look for Stella Maris, the second volume in The Passenger series, on sale December 6th, 2022

  1980, PASS CHRISTIAN, MISSISSIPPI: It is three in the morning when Bobby Western zips the jacket of his wet suit and plunges from the Coast Guard tender into darkness. His dive light illuminates the sunken jet, nine bodies still buckled in their seats, hair floating, eyes devoid of speculation. Missing from the crash site are the pilot’s flight bag, the plane’s black box, and the tenth passenger. But how? A collateral witness to machinations that can only bring him harm, Western is shadowed in body and spirit—by men with badges; by the ghost of his father, inventor of the bomb that melted glass and flesh in Hiroshima; and by his sister, the love and ruin of his soul.
 
  Traversing the American South, from the garrulous barrooms of New Orleans to an abandoned oil rig off the Florida coast, The Passenger is a breathtaking novel of morality and science, the legacy of sin, and the madness that is human consciousness.
