9781400156382: Diablerie: A Novel

In this icy noir from a master of American fiction, the darkest secrets are the ones we keep hidden from ourselves. Ben Dibbuk has a good job, an accomplished wife, a bright college-age daughter, and a patient young mistress. Even as he goes through the motions of everyday life, however, inside he feels nothing. The explanation for this emotional void lies in the years he spent as a blacked-out drunk before pulling his life together—years in which he knows he committed acts he doesn't remember. Then a woman from his past turns up at a gala for his wife's new gig at a magazine called Diablerie and makes it clear that she remembers something he doesn't. Their encounter sets wheels in motion that will propel Dibbuk toward new knowledge and perhaps the chance to feel again. With the same erotic force as Killing Johnny Fry but grounded in a far darker vision of human nature, Diablerie is a transfixing new novel from one of our most powerful writers.

About the Author:

Walter Mosley is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty-three critically acclaimed books, including Devil in a Blue Dress and The Wave.

Richard Allen is a five-time Audie-nominated narrator whose work has been acknowledged on the Best Audiobooks Lists for Audiofile and Library Journal.

From AudioFile:

Walter Mosley's novels are full of everyday people with everyday problems. They rarely feature big, brave action heroes who laugh at death. DIABLERIE is odd, even by Mosley standards. The main character (not "hero," please) is an amoral computer programmer who can't seem to feel anything but lust. But it's just possible that during one of his alcohol-induced blackouts Ben Dibbuk found the passion to murder. Who can communicate all that? Richard Allen is up to the challenge. His rich baritone and silky-smooth delivery make Dibbuk and all the other characters seem so very real. He even makes Dibbuk's Russian mistress sound believable, no easy feat.
