Ghost Lights by Lydia Millet

In Ghost Lights, Hal Lindley's wife is having an affair and his daughter is a paraplegic after an accident. His life is going nowhere in particular and he's searching for answers. His wife's boss has gone missing in Belize, and she's trying to arrange for someone to go look for him. Hal decides he must volunteer for that task. His trip to Belize is more of a search for himself than it is a search for the missing tycoon, but if he's lucky, maybe he can find both. Lydia Millet's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the Boston Globe saying, "I was utterly mystified by its ending. I mean, I understood what happened in the novel's last pages, but I cannot understand why Millet chose to end the novel the way she did. But then again, Ghost Lights is that kind of novel: It's so good at making us appreciate the mysterious motivations of its characters that its readers don't necessarily mind when its own motivations are also, occasionally, mysterious."
