The Vices

Oliver Vice, forty-one, prominent philosopher, scholar, and art collector, is missing and presumed dead, over the side of Queen Mary 2. Troubled by his friend's possible suicide, the unnamed narrator launches an all-consuming investigation into Vice's life story. Fascination turns to obsession as he peels back the layers of the Vice family's rich and bizarre history.

 

The Vices

"Crisply told and vigorously compelling. Douglas’s bright sense of humor camouflages but does not ultimately conceal his haunting story’s menacing undertow. "
— Brad Leithauser, author of The Art Student’s War
