Staff Reviews


Do you like a good locked room mystery ala Agatha Christie? Well, how about a whole building of locked rooms. That is Metropolis, a storage facility of nothing but locked rooms where hidden stories lie behind each door. Supposedly no one lives there, it’s against the law, but some do, kicking back an added fee to the manager so she’ll look the other way when they come and go. All is good until someone falls down the elevator shaft and the police come investigating and secrets begin to emerge. Told mainly through six very diverse characters whose stories slowly entwine until what was once set apart is now a part of the whole, each life influencing the others until the very end, and a very satisfying one at that.

Metropolis is a riveting read by a remarkable storyteller. Shapiro’s cast of characters will keep you guessing. A tribute to old Boston and how people live — in wealth or poverty — and remain human and connected to one another. Well done!”
