Abby Geni’s debut novel, The Lightkeepers, is a terrifically suspenseful novel detailing the year in the life of Miranda, a photographer on a secluded biological research station on the Farallon Islands, thirty miles off the coast of San Francisco. A few months into her stay, one of the biologists is found dead, the result of an apparent accident. The Lightkeepers delivers a tightly plotted mystery while also offering keen insight into the relationship humans have with the natural world, and also contains perhaps the most terrifying scene involving mice ever written. Entertainment Weekly hailed the book as “not to be missed,” and Geni was cited by Barnes and Noble as one of its Discover 2016 Great New Writers. Geni spoke with Brendan Dowling via e-mail on January 14, 2015.
