Hummingbird Salamander

Clues. Jane Smith, protagonist of Jeff VanderMeer’s novel titled, Hummingbird Salamander, finds herself and her family in peril after she’s enticed by clues left for her by a dead ecoterrorist. This is not a spoiler, but the fact that the novel ends with a question was the perfect conclusion to a story in which Jane and us become absorbed in all the large and small questions about ourselves, each other, and our world. With this book, VanderMeer verges into writing a mystery novel, while not relenting in the ways in which he explores big questions with a unique voice.
