'Witty and perceptive ... readers will want to see more of Laurain' -Publishers' Weekly


'A master storyteller'Huffington Post


When the manuscript of a debut crime novel arrives at a Parisian publishing house, everyone in the readers' room is convinced it's something special. And the committee for France's highest literary honour, the Prix Goncourt, agrees. 


But when the shortlist is announced, there's a problem for editor Violaine Lepage: she has no idea of the author's identity. As the police begin to investigate a series of murders strangely reminiscent of those recounted in the book, Violaine is not the only one looking for answers. And, suffering memory blanks following an aeroplane accident, she's beginning to wonder what role she might play in the story ... 


Antoine Laurain, bestselling author ofThe Red Notebook, combines intrigue and charm in this dazzling novel of mystery, love and the power of books.
