Publisher’s Synopsis (From its website)

Floating Notes is a novella of mystery, murder, intrigue, and love. In the space of a hundred pages, Lakghomi wroughts a unique narrator, a god in a rented room, where things appear and disappear from his life. And people are watching―or maybe they’re not. There are no clear answers, there are no solutions, and everything is anything in Floating Notes.
